HKETA Established MoU with San Jose State University on International Collaboration in Education, Industry and Research


HKETA established a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with San José State University (SJSU) on 13th Feb, 2019 to foster international collaboration in education, industry, and research.   This MOU is primary to establish the collaboration and support the career and professional development effort of our Youth and Startup subcommittee of HKETA through sharing SJSU’s academic programming and expertise in workforce development.


We will encourage to explore joint programs in research and development, technology workshops and seminars, and other educational activities.  Such programs could promote interest in technology among young people in Hong Kong and provide continuing education on latest technology advances to working professionals.  Program topics may include STEM training and span across a range of technologies, including but not limited to, VR/AR technology, IoT, cybersecurity and smart city applications.


We will organize educational and technology visits to expose young students and early career engineers with latest technology developments and to enhance their competitiveness in the technology field including visitation programs in Hong Kong and in Silicon Valley.


Our Youth team will continue to foster career development and professional mentoring of young talents and early career engineers and cultivate their potential as future entrepreneurs.   We will explore potential train-the-trainer arrangement between the entrepreneurial communities in Hong Kong and in Silicon Valley.
