Alumni members are important assets of our Department. Our alumni are well received and placed in different disciplines and sectors, ranging from engineering and technical to business and marketing. The diversified nature of employment of our alumni reflects success of the generalist and versatile education that our Department has been aiming to provide in order to produce graduates that are capable of facing the challenge of the rapidly changing and demanding job market in Hong Kong.
Throughout the years, our alumni members have been actively contributing to the development of our academic programmes on different occasions. Alumni members give career talks to our undergraduates every year, sharing their experiences in job hunting and in their career path, and updating the scenario of the current job market. More importantly, alumni members express unanimously that their present career is strongly benefited, either directly or indirectly, by the education they received in our programmes. Direct benefit comes from the professional and broad-based knowledge acquired, while indirect benefit comes from generic skills, such as problem-solving skills that they have built up in studying physics. Some alumni members also volunteer to act as mentors in the mentorship programme, guiding our undergraduates to achieve fuller personal development. The input of ideas from our alumni from time to time has also helped the Department in improving our academic programmes in curriculum revision.
