Having trained as a designer and workplace consultant before joining PolyU Design in 2016, Dorothy has had experience in the design industry and was engaged closely in the design field for consulting work, design executions, presentations and strategic roadmaps. She aims to bring her knowledge and connection with the design industry to students who need advice or just a chat regarding internships, client relationships, and pursuing their career in design after graduation.
Having first joined the marketing team in PolyU Design, Dorothy spent a great deal of time getting to know students, acted as an ambassador for PolyU Design, and actively organized activities and visits for outsiders who are interested in higher education in design. As a Work-integrated Education (WIE) officer now, she is in charge of internship and co-operative projects, which help students to gain exposure and experience in the industry before graduation.
You may also see Dorothy around campus quite often as she takes up weekend classes for her Master in Design Strategies. She welcomes all staff and students to approach her any time for any questions regarding Work-integrated Education (WIE).
