Tomorrow's industry leaders benefited from the expertise of the School of Engineering as they took part in the second Engineering Leadership Professional Program, which took place during the Fall Semester 2013. The program, which has a strong Hong Kong focus, aims at enhancing the capabilities of mid-level technical managers by developing their leadership skills and deepening their understanding of diverse business matters.
During the course, participants were exposed to a range of business and leadership challenges, especially applications that require an entrepreneurial mindset. The program follows a highly interactive, case-study approach using real-life, local cases. Representatives from major local corporations participated in each session, including MTR Corporation, Hongkong Electric, Gammon Construction, CLP Group, Chevalier Group, Shui On Group, PCCW, and Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation.
The program was initiated by Prof Po Chi Wu, and administered through the Professional Program & External Development Office. This was the second time it had been offered, and a third program will be organized in Fall 2014.
