The Department, in collaboration with partners in the China Network, has been offering MSc degree programs in China since 2001. Upon successful completion of all components in the programs, candidates are awarded a University of Hong Kong MSc in Real Estate or a MSc in Construction Project Management degree, both of which are accredited by the RICS leading to qualifications in the surveying profession. With China’s entry into the WTO and the global market place, such qualifications are important credentials.
A unique feature of the China Network programs is the arrangement of team teaching with teachers from network institutions teaching in each other’s programs. This way, the network utilizes the relative strengths of each institution. In recognition of the importance of the China Network MSc programmes in China, the programs have attracted industry sponsorship from the Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS).
