Boosting Research Students' Professional Skills

The Professional Development Committee, which provides opportunities for research postgraduate students to enhance their professional skills, celebrated its first anniversary in the Spring.
Set up by the School of Engineering's forward-looking Center for Engineering Education Innovation, the committee has arranged courses and industrial visits, including leadership training workshops for visiting students from Chu Kochen Honors College, Zhejiang University, and an industrial visit to Cathay Pacific Airways Limited. Research postgraduates from the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Nigeria, and Sri Lanka have served on the committee, offering input on postgraduate education and professional development. 
The School is also offering a new Professional Development Course for research students in the Fall, which will include research ethics, entrepreneurship, and communication.
