The School of Science and Technology of Hong Kong Metropolitan University (HKMU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CMA Industrial Development Foundation Limited (CMA Testing) earlier to foster exchange and collaboration between the two parties and nurture talent for the Testing and Certification (T&C) industry in Hong Kong.

The MOU was signed by Dr Tony Lee Chi-chung, Acting Head of Construction and Quality Management cum Assistant Professor of the School, and Prof. Raymond Wong Wai-yin, Head of Collaboration of CMA Testing, and was witnessed by the Dean of the School, Prof. Philips Wang Fu-lee, and the Chief Operations Officer of CMA Testing, Mr Dominic Lam Chun-hong.

Speaking at the ceremony, Prof. Wang said, "HKMU is committed to contributing to Hong Kong's T&C industry by offering three bachelor's degree programmes, which are designed with different depth and width. We have an applied degree programme stressing integration and practicality and another programme focusing on food testing science, providing various study paths to students with different interests and abilities. To further nurture professionals for the industry, the University will also launch a master's and a bachelor's programme in Medical Laboratory Science this year and next year, respectively." He said he hopes the collaboration will strengthen the exchange between HKMU and CMA Testing in different areas, and continue to optimize testing, inspection and certification work in Hong Kong and the rest of the Greater Bay Area.

Mr Lam mentioned in his remarks that HKMU and CMA Testing shared the same vision in promoting scientific research and development. "This strategic partnership allows us to coordinate with each other utilizing our individual strengths and to train more professionals for the T&C industry," he said. "CMA Testing has been providing career and internship opportunities for post-secondary graduates and students. It also arranges a variety of activities to share practical working experience with students and provide them with training to meet the needs of the industry."

HKMU partnered with CMA Testing for some short-term testing projects a few years ago. The signing of the MOU marks a closer relationship between the two parties to allow more innovative collaboration and exchanges to promote the sustainable development of the T&C industry in Hong Kong.
