I hope that the future ‘Y Show’ is not only a platform for graduates to show their art works, but also to build a deep connection between business and design industry. For this, we invited a group of professional designers to join our enterprise tour which aims to assist enterprises to have a deeper understanding on the design concepts of the graduates.”

The instructors from Asia and Macau gathered with more than 60 students and reviewed all the professional design knowledge and skills they have learned during the five-day course. Mr. Siza Cham, one of the local instructors, expressed, “I am honored to be one of the instructors of ‘Y Class’. I am glad to exchange ideas with the students who are also passionate about design. The introduction of overseas and Macau instructors in one course, broadens the horizons of students. I think that ‘Y Class’ can cultivate more non-gaming development, hence more citizens can commit to the creative industry in Macau.”
