This programme aims to equip students with the technical and professional knowledge and skills together with the necessary language, IT, interpersonal and other generic skills, via the blending of theoretical knowledge and practical application, to enable them to pursue a career in the testing and certification industry.
Because testing and certification has been identified as one of the six economic areas where Hong Kong has good potential for further development, the manpower demand is obvious. Graduates can be employed in HOKLAS accredited laboratories as technical personnel in testing, customer service and quality assurance, and in trading firms, buying offices, small and medium companies, or chained stores as quality controllers responsible for activities in quality control, testing and certification, etc.
