Albert Ho Shi-king, group head of Intellectual Property Investigation (Operations) with the Bureau of the Customs and Excise Department, has a background in criminology and law. He has worked for the government since 1985 and graduated from HKUST's MTM in Global Logistics earlier this year. 'It was great,' Mr Ho said. 'It gave us many chances to interact with other students from all sorts of backgrounds. In some of our classes we had students from the information technology stream and we studied together.' Because classes are held on alternate weekends, students spend Saturday night on campus. 'On Saturday evenings we worked together on projects,' Mr Ho said. 'Sometimes we needed to do presentations on Sunday so it was important to get together Saturday night to fine tune the presentation and the power points.' Although Mr Ho has since moved to another position, he was working at the airport at the time. 'I was involved in a lot of airport logistics projects,' he said. 'Also, at the time the government was very keen to develop Hong Kong into a logistics hub so there were a lot of developments at the airport. All of the facilities at the airport are logistics related.' As a result, Mr Ho was able to put his new knowledge into practice on the job. 'Customs at the border or the airport is about moving goods and people faster and more effectively,' he said. 'So the subjects that came up in class were very closely related to what I was doing at work.'
