The Programme Office

The MSc(ECom&IComp) Programme Office is a people-friendly organization.  We respect and value our students and recognize they are busy professionals.  The Programme Office staff places major emphasis on customer service, responding quickly and precisely to requests by phone, fax or email, ensuring that students' interaction with the Programme is as efficient as possible.  In addition, students are provided with free prescribed textbooks and printed lecture handouts for most of the courses.  If you are away on business trips, you can catch up lectures by downloading the materials and hearing the recorded lecture online as most of our lectures are recorded.

The Intranet

The Intranet is developed by the Programme Office to serve a closed community of local and international faculty, their teaching assistants, students, the Programme Management Team, and the Programme Office staff of the Master of Science programme in Electronic Commerce and Internet Computing at the University of Hong Kong.

These are its features

  1. It draws on a backend database that stores management information such as admission and enrolment, fees, assessment results, students and teachers profiles, evaluation data, statistics, timetables.
  2. It allows personalization and personal spaces for different classes of users.
  3. It allows access to different types of information based on user privileges and rights.
  4. Graduates can continue to access the Intranet in their year of graduation until late December, after that they can join the Alumni Association and continue to keep in touch through the Alumni intranet.

Currently, the system is running on Microsoft Windows platform.  Its front end is the Internet Information Server and the backend database is Microsoft SQL server.
