    The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) has received a $2 million donation to provide scholarships to outstanding students enrolled in Testing and Certification programme.

    The donation came from the Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong (CMA). In recognition of CMA's generosity, a classroom at the university was named after the Association.

    The naming ceremony was officiated by CMA First Vice President Ms. Shirley Chan Suk-ling, CMA Second Vice President Mr Jimmy Ng Wing-ka, OUHK Council Chairman Mr Michael Wong Yick-kam, and OUHK President Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong.

    Speaking at the naming ceremony, Mr Michael Wong expressed his deepest gratitude to CMA for its support. "CMA first established the 'CMA and Donors Scholarship' in 2001 to recognize students with outstanding academic results in business related programmes. Over the years, numerous OUHK students have been awarded with this annual scholarship. This year, OUHK is honoured to receive another generous donation from CMA to establish our first scholarship dedicated to full-time Testing and Certification students with meritorious academic achievements." Mr Michael Wong said.

    Ms Shirley Chan highly commended OUHK for being a leading open university in Asia, and has helped countless individuals who have missed out on higher education for various reasons to pursue and realize their study dreams. She hoped that by establishing this new scholarship, more talents would be nurtured for the local testing and certification industry. "The academic achievements and contribution made by the OUHK are widely recognized, and I am confident that the University would continue to contribute significantly to the development of Hong Kong's Testing and Certification Industry."

    The facility being named "CMA Tutorial Room" has a total floor area of over 2,000 square feet, and can accommodate a maximum of 150 students. It can be partitioned into three smaller classrooms as needed. In addition to providing a spacious environment for teaching and learning, the "CMA Tutorial Room" is also an excellent venue for organizing student activities, conferences, staff training sessions and seminars.

    For the newly established "CMA Testing and Certification Scholarship", 12 awards of $10,000 each will be disbursed annually.

    OUHK's Bachelor of Science with Honours in Testing and Certification programme is the first of its kind in Hong Kong, providing full-time professional training in three specialized areas: electrical and electronics, physical and mechanical, and chemical and microbiological. Since 2015/16, selected students of the programme are subsidized by the Government's Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP), in which each SSSDP student would receive a subsidy of up to $70,000 per annum.

    For the Bachelor of Science with Honours in Testing Science (Environmental Protection) and Bachelor of Science with Honours in Testing Science (Food), both are two-year top-up programmes for associate-degree or higher diploma graduates in biology or chemistry related disciplines. Apart from the abovementioned programmes, OUHK also offers a wide array of Testing and Certification programmes at different academic levels in part-time distance learning mode for working adults. Given its widely recognized academic status in the industry, the OUHK was appointed by the Education Bureau as the assessment agency to conduct Prior Learning Assessment for practitioners in the Testing, Inspection & Certification Industry last year.

    About the OUHK:

    Established by the Government in 1989, The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) provides high quality and flexible university education and professional training to secondary school graduates and working adults. The University currently offers about 220 programmes of different academic levels to more than 10,000 distance learning students and 9,000 full-time students.
    OUHK comprises four Schools, i.e. School of Arts and Social Sciences, Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration, School of Education and Languages, and School of Science and Technology.

The University originally has two buildings on the campus of Ho Man Tin, with another recently-opened Jubilee College, and two learning centres at various convenient locations, namely OUHK-CITA Learning Centre (OCLC) and OUHK Kwai Hing Learning Centre (KHLC).
