From November 6th to 10th, the University of Macau (UM) Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) conducted the “Interdisciplinary programme – New Media, Technological Innovation, Art and Data Mining” for students from Guangzhou University. A total of 45 undergraduate and 45 Master students from various majors at Guangzhou University were selected to participate in the training program, divided into two groups.

The five-day training consisted of a series of special lectures. The students first arrived in Hong Kong, where they attended a two-day lecture series at one Centre of the University of Hong Kong’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (HKU SPACE). The subsequent three days were spent at UM, with professors delivering lectures and conducting group presentation. Through the training, the students experienced high-quality distinctive education in both Hong Kong and Macau, and also got a glimpse of the student life in both places. The participants have gained a lot of knowledge and experience.

This training event received strong support from HKU SPACE, realizing a cross-city academic exchange between Hong Kong and Macau. This event has written a new chapter for the development of the continuous education cooperation model in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, enhancing mutual understanding and exchange among students. It also promotes the integrated development of higher education in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macau.
