Developing a New Total Quality Engineering Degree Program
Abstract: The City University of Hong Kong has developed a new bachelor of engineering program in Total Quality Engineering as a proactive and timely response, fulfilling the need for multiskilled quality engineering professionals in Hong Kong, China, Asia and beyond.There is a niche to fill in quality engineering programs at the undergraduate level in Hong Kong, China and Asia Pacific. A search of the universities and institutions in the Asia Pacific region shows there is no independent quality engineering undergraduate program available. The quality engineering courses are only offered in industrial or manufacturing engineering programs. The industrial or manufacturing graduates can only study one or two quality-related courses, and they don’t provide sufficient knowledge and skill to handle the current problems.
