CityU graduates rank high among employers
SDS Acting Director Mr Joseph Chan attributed the satisfactory job-seeking scenario to relevance of curriculum design to students' career goals. "They were able to apply theirknowledge to their jobs. It is gratifying to learn that graduates from the building surveying programme enjoyed full employment, despite continuous slowdown in the building and construction industry."
The results in the SDS survey echo with those in a survey of employers conducted by the Education and Manpower Bureau of the Hong Kong Government in 2002. Based on findings received from 2,000 employers in Hong Kong, the survey shows that, among the eight UGC-funded institutions, CityU graduates ranked first in "Information Technology Literacy" and second in "Work Attitude". Their rankings in "Chinese and English Language Proficiencies", "Analytical and Problem-solving Abilities" and "Management Skills" have also improved over the 2001 survey.
