Testing and certification has been identified by the HKSAR Government as one of the six industries where Hong Kong has good prospect for development. The Hong Kong Council for Testing and Certification (HKCTC) was established by the HKSAR Government in 2009 to lead, support, advance and promote the development of the industry. In response to the government’s policy, The Open University of Hong Kong is offering a suite of degree programmes to prepare professionals to meet the challenges of the relevant industries.

Highlights of Programme

This programme helps students to gain comprehensive knowledge of product design, testing and certification, and prepares them to embark on a career in relevant industries. Graduates will also be qualified for further study in testing and certification, engineering, applied sciences or related areas in the OUHK or other tertiary institutions in Hong Kong and elsewhere.
