We expressed EngD(EM) cohorts’ opinions including, support the development of the School of Data Science and proposed to continue the EngD(EM) Program as well as reposition to the higher level hierarchy of CityU such as under College of Engineer . We also mentioned the MSc of Engineering Management would be the pipeline of EngD (EM) Program; and the importance of HKIE recognition.
We discussed the different between DBA and EngD that EngD more focused on integration of Industry and Academic thinking; it is a unique program for engineering professionals.
