Discipline Advisory Board

The Engineering Discipline is dedicated to nurturing professional engineers for Hong Kong and facilitating long-term development of the city.  To ensure the relevance and quality of the programmes offered in meeting the ever-changing needs of the economy, the Discipline has sought inputs from the engineering industry through the Engineering Discipline Advisory Board to recommend the strategic development of the Discipline for programmes and services at diploma and higher diploma level.  The Discipline Advisory Board is part of the comprehensive academic management structure formed by Vocational Training Council and it meets regularly for the purposes of: 

  • recommending the course planning, curriculum development and quality assurance of the programmes at diploma and higher diploma level offered;
  • deriving the strategy for networking and partnership with stakeholders for the development and promotion of vocational and professional education and training, including employers, employers' associations, trade unions, professional institutions, training and educational institutions and government departments; 
  • reviewing the skill assessments, trade tests and certification for in-service workers, apprentices and trainees for ascertaining the attainment of specified skill standards, where appropriate;  and
  • suggesting the publicity matters relating to the activities of vocational and professional education and training programmes of the Discipline.
