After that we discussed the following items:
i) EngD (EM) is important program and different departments under College of Engineering could support it (College-based program). Incentive scheme for different professors under different should be considered so as to enhance the programme supervision. One of suggestions is employed EngD cohorts to assist for supervising the thesis.
ii) EngD Society could help college for enhancing the following items including Entrepreneurship / Startup, Internship, Guest talk and Forum, as well as, Mentoring. So as to create Academic and Industrial ecosystem.
iii) Cooperation between industry and academic that we needed to work out a right model. Dean suggested to separate into Innovation Part and Implementation Part. PhD or research students would focus to Innovation Part (R&D) and it needed industry input for Implementation Part. Thus, university research result have impact to society. Funding issue such as ITF or industry sponsorship could be considered for different projects initiation.
iv) EngD Society supported the new program named Bachelor of Engineering in Intelligent Manufacturing Engineering (BENG ITME) which matched the reindustrialization policy in Hong Kong and industry 4.0 trend in the world. Intelligent manufacturing laboratory would be built for this purpose. EngD Society is willing to provide supporting letter for that programme.
At the end, EngD Society would like to contribute more back to CityU and connected all cohorts to share their experience and expertise.
