Message From Horticulture, Arboriculture and Landscape Management Program Leader

Dr. Allen ZHANG

Congratulations to all 2021 Horticulture, Arboriculture and Landscape Management graduates. It was my pleasure to witness your growth and see your talent and effort during the past years.  Whatever the world looks like in 10 years and 20 years, part of that is up to you. I urge you to let this current moment push you to improve yourself in all areas of your life.

Our new titled programme is designed to equip students with the theoretical, technical and professional skills and knowledge in horticulture and arboriculture management, landscape construction and maintenance, related sciences of plants, landscapes and the environment, and sustainable landscape management. It will prepare students to perform the roles and tasks related to horticultural and arboricultural supervision, tree assessment, landscape management, and professional support for both the development and conservation of landscapes and the environment.

Dear graduates, it seems only like yesterday when I met all you guys. It has been a beautiful journey watching all of you blossom. It is indeed with immense pleasure that I can witness your graduation.

I am pleased to see the quality of our programme and graduates recognized both locally and internationally.  Over the past five years, the programme has established collaborations with more than 25 horticulture and arboriculture companies. I predict our graduates will demonstrate their passion and professionalism, and contribute to the horticulture, arboriculture and landscape industry.

My sincere thanks go to our academic staff, our THEi senior management and administration, and sponsors who have put tremendous effort into their education.

I wish all the graduates every success in their future endeavor, I am proud of you.
