Exploring Different Career Paths
The variety of career options open to School of Engineering research postgraduates was the focus of an informative sharing session in March 2015, in which three guest speakers from different fields discussed opportunities for employment in and outside academia. The RPg Lunch Conversation on Exploring Different Career Paths was organized by the Center for Engineering Education Innovation (E2I) as part of the Center’s professional development program for postgraduates.
Speaking at the session were Ms Anna Champion, Founding Member of the South East Asian Association of Graduate Employers, Ir Chi Chiu Chan, Senior Vice President (now President) of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, and Prof Raymond Wong, Director of the School’s Computer Engineering Program. The three presenters shared their career development experience and advised students on how to choose a career direction, prepare for job interviews and workplace requirements, as well as adapt to different work environments and cultures.
