PolyU and HKIAA collaborate on talent nurturing and research for the aviation industry
PolyU and The Hong Kong International Aviation Academy (HKIAA) signed a two-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) with an aim of contributing to the local aviation industry by cultivating talents and conducting aviation-related research projects with joint efforts.
Leveraging on HKIAA’s extensive experience in talent nurturing, together with PolyU’s competence in scientific research, the parties will work closely to develop training programmes for the aviation industry, as well as optimise the execution of such programmes and the collaboration in promotion. In addition, one of the highlights of the MoU is to jointly conduct aviation-related research projects. The pair is committed to exchanging professional knowledge and experience of training and research and sharing such resources as training facilities and flight simulators, so as to maximise the synergy to cultivate talents for the industry.
In spite of the challenges faced by the global aviation industry due to the pandemic, it is believed that the new opportunities ahead for the development of the industry are substantial. Through the cooperation with HKIAA, PolyU expects to make contributions to the aviation industry in Hong Kong.
