Ensuring product quality and safety is the most relevant issue today, especially for Asia Pacific and China which have become the manufacturing centers for the world. Product safety, toxic substance contamination, design mistakes, quality lapse, etc. have caused dramatic recalls and import bans on toys, tires, packaged food, pet foods, drugs produced in Asia Pacific. This has tremendous impact on Hong Kong economic growth since Hong Kong is the gateway for import and export.
Total Quality Engineering (TQE) graduates will be the first of its kind to safe-guard product quality and ensure smooth export to various markets. They will meet the needs for highly trained specialist to assure total assurance and control of quality, reliable, healthy, safe, and environmentally (HSE) friendly products.
TQE combines chemical analysis, quality and reliability engineering, product testing, quality management and international standards into one single package.
TQE will provide you with the unique skill sets to make product safe:
There is a strong demand for the quality engineering related posts in the industry. For instances, searching the Hong Kong JobsDB.com database, the monthly figure (total no. of jobs appeared in last one month) of "quality" positions is always 200+ in 2008, which is far more than other engineering disciplines.
TQE Graduates will find career opportunities in a broad range of manufacturing and service industries. In non-manufacturing sectors, such as construction, hotel, tourism and other service industries, TQE graduates can play a key role in ensuring service quality, reliability, and conformity for health, safety and environmental regulations to meet the needs of customer requirements and performance standards, such as ISO9000, ISO14000, etc.
Applicants may apply through the Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS) or direct application.
The Major has been accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) and Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ).
