Training for Mainland Higher Education Institutions

IC is one of the local academic institutions to establish links and collaborations with Mainland China institutions since 1980's. In fact over 40 industrial training centres in universities of Mainland China were modelled after IC. Thousands of academic staff and education administrators pay visit to IC each year.

We have close connections with Mainland's higher education institutions and have accumulated many years of experience and exposure in Mainland's industrial engineering education. In response to the increasing need for development of modern industrial engineering education in Mainland China, IC started providing tailor-made programmes for Mainland China institutions years ago with topics focused on education reform, manpower development, teaching team building, collaboration with industry, course development, teaching pedagogy, etc. Institutions from different provinces and cities have been sending their senior officials and teachers to undertake development programmes at IC.

IC offers around 10 to 15 courses to Mainland China higher education institutions from different provinces and cities each year, accommodating more than 1,300 participants. Participants include principals, senior officials, department heads and teachers. The number of programme offered each year is limited to ensure the programme quality.
