Tim Bennett, UCEM’s Dean of School (International), commented: “HKICM is a crucial partner of ours and we are pleased to receive this formal recognition, continuing our ongoing relationship.

“Hong Kong is an important region for us being the location of our Asia-Pacific HQ, so I am delighted that HKICM have accredited the relevant programmes for a further five years.

“I look forward to continuing to work closely with HKICM to benefit the construction industry in Hong Kong.”

Cr Daniel Shum, HKICM’s Chairman of the Board of Examination, added: “We are pleased to approve the re-accreditation of the programmes.

“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with UCEM and look forward to supporting each other in nurturing talent for the built environment.”
