VTC STEM Education Centre

Being the largest Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET) provider in Hong Kong, the Vocational Training Council (VTC) has recognized the need to equip a learning community with essential knowledge and skills sets in the academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) for a 21st century workforce to cope with the rapid economic, scientific and technological developments. Three STEM Education Centres are set up to provide strategic coverage across the territory: IVE (Tsing Yi), IVE (Chai Wan) and Youth College (Kowloon Bay).

Science

Science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge. This system uses observation and experimentation to describe and explain natural phenomena. It describes any systematic field of study or the knowledge gained from study and practice.

Technology

Technology is the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, etc. or it can be embedded in machines, computers, devices and factories, which can be operated by individuals without detailed knowledge of the workings of such things.

Engineering

Engineering is the application of mathematics, empirical evidence and scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to invent, innovate, design, build, maintain, research, and improve structures, machines, tools, systems, components, materials, processes and organizations.

Mathematics

Mathematics is the study of topics such as quantity (numbers), structure, space, and change. There is a range of views among mathematicians and philosophers as to the exact scope and definition of mathematics.
