Evolved from the past Workers' Night School, HKCT is developing towards a professional university.
Welcome to the website of the Hong Kong College of Technology. From here you will know about a Conscientious and Innovative HKCT.
HKCT and its predecessor, Workers' Night School was formed with an aim to address the joblessness and under-education problems in post-war Hong Kong. For more than 75 years, our curricula evolve continuously to adapt to the changing demands of society: from the literacy education of Workers' Night School in the 1940s and 50s, the school skilled labour training in the 60s, professional education in the 70s and 80s, retraining in the 90s, our programmes extend to post-secondary education past the Millennium and at present, we are conferring academic degrees. In 2014, HKCT Institute of Higher Education was approved by Chief Executive-in-Council to become one of the 22 degree-awarding higher education institutions in Hong Kong.
HKCT is deeply committed to professional career education and provides a variety of programmes including full-time and part-time degree, Higher Diploma, Diploma of Applied Education, Diploma Yi Jin and Diploma with an emphasis on applied skills and shaping positive values and an aim to match the labour demand of industries with students who are willing to join. In over half a decade, HKCT has nurtured more than 650,000 students.
Going forward, we will carry on our advancement with our Conscientious and Innovative spirit, and with focus and enjoyment. On the degree-awarding status, our experience and an employer network of over 10,000 corporations, we will work towards developing into a professional university to further satisfy market demand for talents and lay a solid foundation for our students' careers.
