Instructions for Course Selection

In terms of academic regulations: Matters not specified below shall be handled in accordance with the regulations of the university.
  1. The credit requirements for students in each year are as follows: First, second, and third year: 12-25 credits; Fourth year: 9-25 credits.
  2. Physical education is a required course for first and second year students, with two hours of instruction per week and no credits awarded. Students must complete this course in order to graduate. Students may retake or make up the course, limited to one additional course per semester. Physical education courses are also available as elective courses, with two hours of instruction per week and two credits awarded, but these do not count towards graduation credits.
  3. If there is a prescribed order for the subjects offered by the teaching unit, students must not take them out of sequence. For subjects that involve both lectures and experiments or practical training, students must not take the experiments or practical training first; otherwise, the credits will not be recognized.
  4. If a student repeats a course with the same name, the repeated grade and credit will not be counted towards the graduation credit calculation.
Notes for course selection
  1. Starting from the academic year 2018, the department will no longer accept computer course selection forms signed by instructors. The department will announce the course selection methods for each course based on the enrollment situation and the preference of the instructor. The available slots will be opened online, and students are required to follow the announcement and add courses by themselves.
  2. Students are advised to prioritize selecting courses offered by our own department, especially for required courses. (i.e. Class A students should take Class A courses, and Class B students should take Class B courses; the same applies to retaking courses.) For example, Class 2A students cannot take Algebra, Linear Algebra, or Advanced Calculus courses offered by other classes. However, if a student is retaking a course or taking a makeup course, they may take classes offered by Class A or Class B only if the class schedule does not conflict with their major required courses.
  3. For students who take the "Special Research Project" series of elective courses, please obtain the "Elective Research Report" from the department assistant, have it signed by the adviser, and submit it to the department assistant within one week after the start of the semester in order to take the course. If the report is not signed by an adviser, the grade for this course will be calculated as zero. Only 3 credits of "Special Research Project(I)" and "Special Research Project(II)" will be counted towards the total credits required for graduation.
  4. If a student wishes to have a course taken outside the department recognized as a course within the department with a similar course name and content, they must pass the departmental review before taking the course.
  5. The elective courses are available to both Class A and Class B students. (Class A and Class B have the same priority order.)
  6. The elective courses cannot be military training courses and are limited to the following areas: minor programs, double major programs, cross-disciplinary credit programs, career development programs, micro-credit programs (outside the major), and PBL courses.
  7. Students who wish to retake a course at another department or university must first obtain approval from the department before enrolling in the course.
Credit matters
  1. Transfer student from other department in CYCU
    1. For courses with the same name as those offered by the student's original department:
      1. For students who have taken courses with the same name in their previous program of study, if the credits earned are lower than the credits required in this program, the "Upper" or "I" course will be used as a reference for credit exemption. For example, if a student has taken "Calculus (Upper)" and "Calculus (Lower)" for 3 credits each in their previous program of study, with a total of 6 credits, and they want to apply for credit exemption for "Calculus (Upper)" which is worth 4 credits in this program, they will need to make up for the remaining 2 credits by taking "Calculus (Lower)" in this program.
      2. Credit transfer is applicable when the number of credits previously taken for a course is equal to that of the corresponding course in the current department. A course syllabus is required to process the credit transfer, for example, for courses like "Statistics," "Linear Algebra," "Linear Programming," in the School of Engineering or the School of Business.
  2. Transfer student from other university
    1. The credits earned from the original school must not be less than the credits of the courses offered by our department in order to be exempted.
    2. Only the required and elective courses offered by our department in the past 3 years are eligible for credit transfer.
    3. Military training credits are not included in the scope of recognized valid graduation credits.
    4. For courses with similar names, please provide the course syllabus of the course previously taken and obtain approval from the head of the department before they can be credited.
    5. The department reserves the right to determine whether a course can be exempted or not.
Regarding minor and double major programs, please follow the relevant regulations of the Office of Academic Affairs. The list of required courses for minor and double major programs is provided in the following link.
