This programme aims to provide an integrated Testing & Certification (T&C) training to students, in order to equip them with the knowledge and practical skills to work in the complex and ever-changing environment of the T&C industry. It emphasizes on both scientific knowledge and practical skills in four important areas of T&C - integrated science, analytical science, testing technologies, quality control and management - which would allow the graduates to pursue a professional career in the T&C industry.
Graduates will be capable of taking supervisory and technical duties in the T&C industry, including Technical Assistants, Quality Assurance Assistants and Chemists. They can advance to managerial positions, such as Senior Chemist, Technical Consultant and Technical Managers, with accumulated working experience and professional qualifications.
Graduates are able to articulate to Master’s programmes in analytical science, chemical science, microbiological science or other T&C-related areas.
Graduates (depending on their stream) may apply for either the Certified Testing Professional (Chemical Testing) or the Certified Testing Professional (Microbiological Testing) under the Professional Certification Scheme for Testing Personnel, administered by the Hong Kong Association for Testing, Inspection and Certification (HKTIC).
