Completion of Hong Kong Institute of Construction's new campuses
HKIC celebrated the completion of development project of its Kowloon Bay, Kwai Chung and Sheung Shui Campuses. Mr Paul Chan, Financial Secretary of the Government of the HKSAR, was invited as the Guest-of-honour to officiate the ceremony at HKIC – Sheung Shui Campus on May 31.
     Mr Paul Chan said, “The Hong Kong Institute of Construction has been very supportive to the government's policy since its establishment in 2018 to promote innovative technology in its training and bring about revolutionary change to the construction industry. The first Safety Experience Training Centre in HKIC - Kwai Chung Campus incorporates virtual reality (VR) and other sensory experience into its safety training courses to raise awareness in construction site safety with the aim to minimise accidents in the long run. The completion of campus development project will provide a better and comprehensive learning environment with better hardware for students.”
     The establishment of HKIC aims to nurture an accomplished construction workforce with sound professional skills, theoretical knowledge, safety awareness, innovative ideas, passion and pride for the construction industry of Hong Kong. In addition to the 16 qualifications, evaluation for HKIC's Diplomas in Construction for Plant Maintenance & Repairs, Plumbing, Electrical Installation and Formwork have also finished and we are awaiting accreditation result announced by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications. The HKIC will remain committed to the “Construction Pathway Project” by providing graduates with a comprehensive articulation pathway and progressive development in the vocational and professional career.
