Training/ Certification Programme (TCP)

To provide diversified learning opportunities to students, we collaborate with various well-known organisations to integrate tertiary education with professional training/ certification. Through this programme, students are provided with practical knowledge/ skills and extra-curricular guidance to strengthen their employability.

Some past activities of the TCP are shown below.

 

 

Information Security Training Programme

To further enhance students’ technical competencies and employability, a series of online workshops about the professional examinations of information security for Year 3 to 4 undergraduates and MSc students were organised. The workshops covered major technical topics, simulation and sample exercises, as well as included sharing by industry practitioners who are Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA). Credentials like CISSP and CISA are two of the most popular ones that are highly regarded. 

The workshop tutor and guest speakers reviewed the nature and scope of the examinations, qualifications and requirements for being fully certified upon gaining relevant work experience. Technical details, modules and sample questions under different scenarios were also discussed. These workshops enabled our students to obtain practical knowledge and helped them get prepared for the professional examinations.

"The summer CISSP workshop introduced two popular certification CISSP and CISA in the information security field, and gave some examples on the topics that the exams would cover. Also, the sharing from the guest speaker who is currently working in the industry provides me more insight and directions in career planning." ~~~ CHOW Chun Yu

 

Corda Training/ Certification Programme

In order to provide COMP students with more practical experience in blockchain application development, this programme is conducted in collaboration with the Hong Kong Blockchain Society. A series of workshops are organised for students. Students who pass a test will be awarded a certificate issued by the Hong Kong Blockchain Society.

In the workshops, core concepts of Corda, including state, contract, transaction, flow and node are introduced. To apply the concepts practically, students also solve programming problems, design blockchain applications and develop CorDapps (applications on Corda) from scratch. This programme facilitates students to develop in the Fintech field.

"The Corda workshop introduced me the basic concepts of blockchain as well as smart contract. It provided an opportunity to code business logic with Java under the Corda platform, which is a great way to understand what a distributed ledger is." ~~~ LAM Tsun Fung

 

Unity Training/ Certification Programme

This is a six-month programme with the aim of assisting students to prepare for the Unity Certified Developer examination. It is currently the only professional certification in the games industry. To get certified, candidates have to pass a rigorous test of technical and problem solving skills designed by specialists and experts from the games, 3D and interactive industries.

Obtaining this certification allows students to demonstrate their applied knowledge and technical programming skills that meet the industry standards, strengthens their competitiveness and enables them to develop in the game industry.

"I learnt all-rounded skills & procedures to properly develop a game using Unity. Hopefully, I can show my potential employers my ability to be their game developer." ~~~ YEUNG Tsz Fung
