A Strong Supportive Network of Alumni

[ MATPP AGM 2010 ]

The Master of Arts in Transport Policy and Planning Alumni Association was inaugurated in December 2000. It was initiated by a group of enthusiastic and active MATPP alumni who aim to stay connected with MATPP students and graduates, keep abreast of transport development in Hong Kong and beyond, and promote study and research in transportation.

The association holds regular meetings, as well as organizes outdoor activities and visits to transport companies/infrastructure. Students/alumni may make use of these opportunities to broaden their horizons and share the latest developments in the transport sector with their fellow graduates.

I studied supply chain management in my undergraduate degree, the one-year intensive study of MATPP programme greatly deepened my professional understanding about transport and logistics, we were able to meet and talk with many experienced professionals during multidisciplinary seminars. Outside the classroom, we were provided with valuable opportunities by renowned organizations such as CILTHK and RTPI. All of these were precious experiences.


What is more, I would like to convey my great appreciation to my supervisor Dr. Zhou Jiangping, I was impressed by his patient guidance and rigorous academic attitude, which inspired me a lot during the whole process of composing my dissertation. And I was grateful for the selfless supports from my teachers and classmates, they helped me get through the difficulties during the COVID-19 epidemic.


MATPP is a journey, not a destination.

Keep learning and shape myself to be agile in this rapid-changing environment are my core objectives in joining the MATPP programme for learning sustainable, innovative and forwardlooking transport ideas in view of new technology and uncertainties. Good time management is necessary and critical in balancing family, work and study without compromising the quality in all aspects. Thanks to all teachers, classmates and alumni who are exceptional and inspire me to think out of the box throughout my study, especially the pandemic allows me to rethink what the transport will be in the future!!

Attending the MATPP programme at HKU was certainly one-of-a-kind experience for me, as a student with an unrelated educational background to transport policy and planning. The programme could be considered fast-paced for full-time students, especially when we had to determine the dissertation topic and supervisor right in the beginning of the first semester. Nevertheless, the programme has enabled me to expand my knowledge and skillsets, together with improving my research skill when doing my dissertation. This programme is surely unique and very useful for inspiring transport-related practicioners.

CLASS 2019

The MATPP Programme was a great challenge for me, as I was an accounting student before enrolling at HKU. Of course, I made the right decision. The well-structured programme gave me the opportunity to gain a better and more professional understanding of transport policy and planning. All of my teachers were outstanding and highly experienced in their respective fields. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to them. Additionally, my knowledge and research skills have improved significantly through various assignments, projects, and the final dissertation.
I must admit that the dissertation was tough. However, my supervisor, Professor C. K. Mak, encouraged and inspired me to overcome these obstacles. I cannot thank him enough for enlightening me with so many insightful ideas and meaningful suggestions.
Personally, my MATPP journey was memorable and abundant. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all of the teaching staff and classmates for their support and assistance.

Over the past two semesters, the MATPP programme has been highly comprehensive and practical in terms of future studies and potential career paths. The programme has also been very fulfilling, with abundant real-life case studies and extensive course material. What’s more, our professors always actively shared their experience and guided us towards our own personal ideas.  Overall, the one year programme was extremely fruitful and has made me more independent. The programme also allowed me to see the world and accumulate professional knowledge.

Before joining the MATPP programme, I never realised how much transport is linked to our daily lives and society in general. Studying different theories, policies, research methods, and case studies deepened my understanding of transport and broadened my horizons. After our field trip to Singapore and writing my dissertation, I now understand the great importance of transport: from the wellbeing of citizens, to the economic and social development of a city. The programme also provided a precious chance to meet like-minded people who are also interested in transport—I have many unforgettable experiences. The programme was extremely inspiring, and I look forward to utilising my knowledge and experience in the near future.

Two years passed in the blink of an eye. The assignments, projects, and dissertation at times made us feel exhausted and frustrated, but it was definitely a rewarding experience in the end! The programme enabled us to meet professionals from many different backgrounds, and the field trip to Singapore was fun and inspiring. Not only did I acquire a great deal of knowledge and critical thinking skills, I also made friends from all walks of life. To me, MATPP is:
Mindful: thinking from different angles and perspectives
Active: always being attentive and energetic
Tailor-made: choosing our own electives and topics of interest for the dissertation
Passion: for transport policy and planning
Perseverance: when deadlines are approaching

Studying on the MATPP programme for the past three years has been a wonderful and unforgettable journey. My horizons have broadened thanks to the knowledge shared by the programme’s lecturers as well as the many guest speakers from various fields. The experience I gained from participating in group projects with my classmates was invaluable, as it allowed me to see things from different perspectives. Challenges throughout the study strengthened my problem solving skills and was also the basis of many great memories.
