Mr Tai Arnold Junior First Officer Cathay Pacific Airways
Upon completion of my degree programme in ISE, I joined Cathay Pacific Airways' Cadet Pilot Programme in July 2012 as a cadet pilot. After finishing the intensive 14 months flying training in Adelaide, Australia, I returned to Hong Kong in Sept 2013 and joined the Cathay team as a Second Officer. My duties involve being part of the flight crew and mainly acting as a relief pilot on ultra long haul operations. It is undoubtedly the ultimate excitement to fly around the world with the fleet of CX Boeing 777-300ER airliners where my roster sends me to major cities in Europe and North America. My study in ISE was very enjoyable and knowledgeable. The programme equipped me with a logical mindset which, later in time, brought me advantages in the demanding flying training environment. It also helped brush up my standards in Maths and Physics during the 3 years of study.

"I joined Parsons Brinckerhoff soon after finishing my studies in ISE. PB is an international consultancy company and I am working as an assistant engineer in the Railway Division in the System Assurance Team. It is not difficult to find other ISE alumni in our division. My job duties include assisting contractors to establish risk management plans and to analyze their systems with engineering tools like the risk register and hazard log. It is also my responsibility to check their compliance with standards and the law and to attend audits and meetings between various parties. The ISE program equipped me with the necessary project management skills, and the experience of using engineering tools and software was also beneficial. In addition, the ISE programme is recognized by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, so I can join the Scheme A fast-track programme to become a Chartered Engineer."
