    About Organizations

    The University of Hong Kong

    Three units are involved in this project. They are Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering, and Department of Construction and Real Estates.

    The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) of the University of Hong Kong was found in May 1973. Since its inception, the Department of IMSE has witnessed Hong Kong's transformation from a manufacturing oriented centre into a major international service and financial center, and in its moving towards a knowledge-based economy. Over the years, the Department has proactively responded to these developments, and has successfully educated highly talented and competent graduates to meet the needs of society. Recently, the Department has placed new emphases on logistics and technology management to support Hong Kong's quest to become a world-class logistics and innovation center. The Department has recently been heavily involved in the development and application of RFID solutions which have now been used in logistics and manufacturing industries for daily operations.

    The Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Hong Kong has nurtured many brilliant leaders in the civil engineering discipline and made significant contributions to the local and overseas community. Department of Civil Engineering hosts the Centre for Infrastructure & Construction Industry Development (CICID), established in November 2002 in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture. The aims include fostering continuous improvements, while targeting excellence in the construction industry in general and infrastructure development in particular, through the development of innovative strategies and techniques. The objectives include (a) developing an internationally recognised 'Centre of Excellence' for research, discourse and dissemination of innovations in infrastructure and construction engineering & management, and construction industry development methodologies; and (b) encouraging and supporting interdisciplinary research into planning, implementing and evaluating construction projects including mega/ multi-project infrastructure programmes.

    The Department of Real Estate and Construction (formerly known as Department of Surveying) was formally established as a new department in June 1984. It is directly associated with the surveying profession through the professional accreditation of its undergraduate program by the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (UK) (RICS). The Department seeks to meet the academic challenges of the surveying profession from an interdisciplinary base. A large proportion of graduates follow a professional career as surveyors. Surveyors usually develop a specialism and traditionally undergraduate education for these specialist sections has been largely independent, but increasingly the environment of real estate and construction has shown that this position can no longer be sustained. This Department was the first to recognize this and develop a common degree for these major areas which allows students to specialize after graduation rather than before.

    The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

    The Department of Building and Real Estate (BRE) has developed a leading position in providing a wide range of academic programmes that nurture preferred graduates for the building and real estate industry, one of the largest and most competitive industries in the region. Established in the 1930s, BRE is well recognized locally and internationally amongst construction professionals. With the on-going endeavours and achievements, BRE is committed to providing students with the best educational experience possible. BRE is pioneers in embracing a wide selection of comprehensive components in the programmes, ranging from academic training, Work-Integrated Education, Student Exchange Programme, practical workshops to site visits. In addition to professional competence, BRE develops students’ proficiency in generic skills, such as leadership, management, communication, analysis and creativity, which are highly demanded and crucial to their future success in society.

    Hong Kong Housing Authority

    The Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) is a statutory body established in April 1973 under the Housing Ordinance. The HA develops and implements a public housing programme which seeks to achieve the Government's policy objective of meeting the housing needs of people who cannot afford private rental housing. Approximately 30% of the Hong Kong population is now living in public rental housing units. The HA plans, builds, manages and maintains different types of public housing, including rental housing estates, interim housing estates, and transit centres. In addition, the HA owns and operates some flatted factories and ancillary commercial and other non-domestic facilities. The HA also supports the Government's policy in providing subsidised home ownership flats to qualified persons.
