Industry Partnership

HKGBC CityU partnership

Organized by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC), a series of Skills Upgrading courses are designed to give participants continuing education that is more in-depth than traditional CPD webinars. 

Seven faculty members of the School of Energy and Environment (SEE) joined the first round of the Green Building Skills Upgrading Programme organized by HKGBC. They taught 12 tailor-made courses from March 2021 to February 2022. The programme provided more in-depth and structured knowledge of green building to construction industry practitioners. The courses can also serve as ‘an appetizer’ to people interested in pursuing post-graduate studies.  

HKGBC will organize the second round of Green Building Skills Upgrading courses from August 2022. Six SEE faculty members are invited to teach the following courses (exact time of offering to be confirmed near the course offering month)

Entry requirement: Participants shall be practitioners in the construction industry with a bachelor’s degree / higher diploma in a built environment-related discipline. (For non-BEAM Pro registrants, proof of academic qualifications is required.)
