Mr Mohamed Butt, Executive Director of HKPC, said, “Talent is the
key success factor for business when I&T has been sweeping across the
entire world and re-industrialisation is currently in active mode. The demand
for I&T power and talent by different industries has rapidly risen,
especially when the global economy is entering the new normal era.”

Mr Butt continued, “With over 50 years of experience in
consultancy services for I&T and applied research and future skills
training, HKPC takes up the public mission of nurturing talent. Our new
collaboration with the Faculty of
Engineering of CUHK showcases
HKPC’s commitment to the nurturing of R&D and innovation talent. Addressing
the different needs of undergraduate students, research postgraduates and PhD
students, HKPC will roll out internships and research programmes in line with
the requirement of the academic departments to enable students to acquire hands-on
R&D experience as early as possible. We hope this initiative can strengthen
the local talent pool and benefit the robust development of local I&T.”

Professor
Martin D. F. Wong, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering of CUHK said, “The
Faculty of Engineering has always been committed to developing IT professionals
and promoting technology applications. This collaboration brings together our
strength in engineering research and education with HKPC’s rich experiences in
supporting industries in Hong Kong. Together we will be able to offer diverse
internship opportunities for CUHK engineering students so that they can gain
valuable work experiences and get inspiration for more innovative solutions for
the development of science and technology industries in Hong Kong.”

Areas for collaboration include the provision of rich
and credit-bearing, on-the-job training opportunities by HKPC for students
studying bachelor, master and doctoral courses at CUHK, and special teaching
module, professional training and part-time master and doctoral courses for
HKPC staff, provided by CUHK, in return. Giving practice and exchange
opportunities to students interested in I&T learning will help converge technological
talents and inject new impetus into Hong Kong’s economy, industries and
academia, creating favourable conditions for promoting I&T and
re-industrialisation.
