The programme provides seminars, internships, career sharing and site visits to enable students to familiarise themselves with the industry. My internship at a renowned aircraft manufacturing company in Shanghai enabled me to explore the culture of the industry overseas. This was a highlight of my academic life. As well as gaining up-to-date information on the market from professors, students have the opportunity to learn from guest speakers in the industry. This gives students a glimpse of how the industry works in the real world.
