The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is at the global forefront for the development of an e-fuel energy storage technology that will revolutionize the way energy is currently stored, and open up brand new possibilities for worldwide application.
After hosting the SENG Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition for four years, the Center for Engineering Education Innovation (E2I) of the School of Engineering collaborated with the HKUST Office of Postgraduate Studies to jointly organize the first HKUST 3MT® Competition on March 27, 2018.
The Big Data Institute of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has partnered with Naver/Line to set up the HKUST-NAVER/LINE AI Laboratory. This was announced today (April 12) at the HKUST Big Data & AI Day 2018 organized the University’s Big Data Institute.
A research team at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology recently invented a new fusion-based technology which achieves remarkably improved accuracy to position people indoor, enabling novel smart location-based applications such as indoor navigation, location-based personalized recommendation, crowd analysis and people flow control.
With aerospace engineering becoming a new strategic area of the School of Engineering few years ago, Prof Rhea Liem joined HKUST to drive the development of this field with other faculty members. Growing up, she has been totally free in exploring her engineering interest in an open environment and she hopes female students alike enjoy the same opportunities as she did.
Prof Mansun Chan from HKUST’s Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering is a lover of board games. He first extended his sense of playing board games to his engineering studies. Now he is materializing his passion in engineering education and his dream of founding the International Olympics of Technology inspired by sportsmen’s Olympic Games.
An international multi-disciplinary research team led by scientists at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has discovered for the first time a computational framework that could map out the fitness landscape of a crucial protein in the human immunodeficiency virus, potentially paving the way for rational design of a vaccine that may force the deadly virus to mutate into forms that lead to its demise.
