Cohort 22-23, Faculty of Engineering (Energy and Environmental Engineering)
Placement, Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Limited

I remember one question, “What were you thinking the moment that you decided to join Co-op?” The beauty of this question is that it is not just about why you chose Co-op, but more about exploring the inner motivation and logic when facing uncertain changes. After the 3-day Outward Bound Training, adaptation to 6-month work life and networking with different level of people, I feel more confident towards things that I have never tried.

My Co-op placement at Arup (Climate Risk & Resilience Team) was full of outcomes. I participated in several projects alongside professionals, ranging from hazards simulation to client connection. Full-time working gave me insightful views on various topics about climate, enabling me to understand the actual demands towards climate change and generate robust solutions or recommendations.
