The Interdisciplinary Unit (IU), a new academic discipline of IVE set up in September 2017 under STEM Office, is established to offer academic programmes dedicated to interdisciplinary studies with respect to the emerging needs of industries. It aims to nurture talents with interdisciplinary knowledge, versatile and independent thinking skills.
The Interdisciplinary Programmes are lectured by professional teaching staff from different disciplines, and where necessary, by practitioners in chosen industries.
The Interdisciplinary Programmes offered by IU cover many academic areas, providing our students with a solid foundation of vocational and professional education and training with integrating knowledge and skills across multiple disciplines for meeting the challenges of complex, changing and competing workforces of the future. Each interdisciplinary programme is specifically designed with a unique curriculum incorporated with integrated skills and knowledge from relevant academic disciplines. With the aim of preparing our students for a future of dynamic change and cultivating a culture of life-long learning, the Unit offers both full-time pre-employment programmes and part-time in-service programmes. By completing any of our Interdisciplinary Programmes, graduates will have a wide pool of jobs to choose from the industries and fields relevant to the programme they studied.
