Introducing learning-unit system: Instead of focusing on lecture/in-class hours, AiCE program utilizes the learning unit system. Our courses offer a blended learning experience of both in-class learning modules with hands-on assignment & project. 1 unit of learning generally refers to one hour of learning effort per week toward the subject. If a subject is 12-units, it means we expect the students to spend at least 12 hours per week in total (in-class module, assignments & related projects) working on relevant topics. This is roughly equivalent to a 4 credit course in traditional system.
The AiCE undergraduate curriculum requires at least 342 units. This includes 72 units of general education electives, 90 units of math/science requirements, 144 units of technical fundamental requirements, 12 units of Capstone design requirement, and 24 units of Undergrad Research & Development.
