Summer Exchange Programmes

About the Programme

The College has specially arranged a summer internship programme for exchange students. They will conduct a research project under the supervision of a faculty member at CityU. Apart from gaining research experience, they will have the opportunity to participate in outside classroom activities. For example, industrial visits and cultural events will be organized to give them a brief introduction of the industrial establishment in Hong Kong as well as a taste of the Chinese culture.
Dates: 6 Jun - 5 Aug 2022
