Possible Ways of Collaboration with Industry Partners

  1. Joint research lab
    It is a long-term collaboration relation where companies set up a research funding pool at the university.
  2. Internship
    Our students are encouraged to take internship during their studies. The internship can be as short as six weeks and as long as one year. We maintain a database enlisting the internship opportunities offered by companies. The database is open to our students.
  3. Final year project
    Our students are required to complete a project applying what they have learnt in their final year. Companies are welcome to let us know possible topics that they are interested in sponsoring by each March. Selected topics will be open for enrollment by students as their final year projects.
  4. Professional and development course
    All students who have enrolled to our program are required to take a seminar course, where companies are welcome to give a talk introducing the various opportunities and career path in a profession for IT graduates.
  5. Research and Technology Forum
    We will organize a Research and Technology Forum, inviting companies to join a series of 5-min research highlights by our faculty.
  6. Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF)
    Hong Kong government offering funding to facilitate collaboration between universities and industry. The two popular schemes are: Innovation and Technology Support Programme (ITSP) and Partnership Research Program (PRP). Besides tax relief, companies are eligible to rebate 40% of their cash sponsorship in these projects from the government via the Research and Development Cash Rebate Scheme (CRS).
