[ MATPP AGM 2000 ]

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.

Studying the MATPP Programme is like a journey which is fulfilling, mind-enhancing and life-enriching. The multi-disciplinary studies give me fundamental knowledge on transport and up-to-date policy and planning in Hong Kong and worldwide. During my one-year study in the Programme, I got help and support from the professors, staffs, and met fellow classmates from different backgrounds, which brought me new insights and good memories. I also completed the dissertation for the Degree.

The MATPP Programme has not only enhanced my interest in the transport industry, but also granted me the opportunity to pursue and receive the scholarship award from CILTHK. I would highly recommend this Programme to anyone who wishes to enrich his/her knowledge on transport policy and planning.

Choosing the MATPP programme is undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made. For students like me, who studied traffic engineering as an undergraduate, the MATPP programme has provided a broader understanding of transport from a macro perspective of policy and planning – especially thanks to the knowledgeable professors and experienced industry professionals. The well structured courses also offer a broad and in-depth understanding of transport planning and policy within a highly condensed period. While the learning and writing process of the dissertation was quite challenging, it was definitely worth it. I can assure you that anyone who signs up for this programme will find it enjoyable, rewarding, and worthwhile.

During my studies, I have acquired several handy skills such as basic statistics, GIS software, and research writing, which are essential for my future career development. As a final note, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my dissertation supervisor, Dr Yongsung Lee, as well as the teachers and departmental staff for their guidance and support throughout my studies at HKU.

The MATPP course has enabled me to diversify my knowledge of the transportation industry, particularly for Hong Kong’s transport system. Coming from an aviation background, I believed that the technical knowledge and expertise I possess would be of utmost use in terms of succeeding in this course, and I was right! Moreover, the diverse nature of the modules enabled me to tap into different interests, focusing on aspects of law, management, and economics within the transport industry. I strongly believe that the MATPP course will provide me with excellent future prospects as a young professional.

Never have I been so engaged, challenged, and fulfilled! The MATPP programme enabled us to meet professionals from many different backgrounds and provided essential training for researchers such as myself to develop multi-disciplinary thinking and skills. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all teachers, especially my dissertation supervisor, Dr Jiangping Zhou, for all the effort they have taken throughout my studies. I would recommend this programme to anyone who is passionate or interested in transport studies. Your dissertation will be a chance to research, take initiative, create knowledge, and address an important issue within your chosen discipline.

Despite working in the transport industry for several years, transport to me two years ago was just another tool that I would encounter and use on a daily basis. However, after joining MATPP, I not only acquired practical skills in transport planning, but also learnt to appreciate the efficiency and excellence of Hong Kong’s transport system. This has greatly enhanced my knowledge and imagination of transport in general as well. Embarking on the MATPP journey has been a challenging yet rewarding experience. I have gained valuable academic knowledge through this experience, and have also formed great friendships with my supportive peers. If you are interested in learning about transport in depth, join the programme. By working hard and thinking critically, I am certain that you will receive the same rewarding experience as myself!
