Associate Professor Richard Jordan, Director of International Partnerships for the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment (CEBE) has been building links with the University’s partners in Hong Kong.
The University delivers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Hong Kong in partnership with the Hong Kong Professional Education Group. During his visit to Hong Kong, Richard Jordan met representatives from the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Management to introduce them to the construction-related programmes the University offers.
The representatives discussed plans to develop a closer relationship and encourage collaboration between the organisations, including planning a joint conference, discussion forum, and training and CPD events in Hong Kong. There are also plans to accredit the University’s existing and proposed construction-related degree courses in Hong Kong.
Professor Richard Jordan said: “The Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment, has been delivering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes for nearly 5 years through its partner - the Continuous Professional Education Centre in Hong Kong.
“As vocational programmes which are aimed at enhancing the employability of students working in built-environment disciplines, the extent to which the programmes are recognised and formally accredited by professional bodies is increasingly significant.
Partnerships like this enable the University to raise its profile and ensure that our students around the world have the best experience possible from their studies.
