Dozens of young female engineers and postgraduate students from top universities and institutions worldwide arrived at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) on 4 October to explore a career of teaching and research in Asia Pacific. They participated in a first-of-its-kind workshop where faculty members from top Asian universities will mentor and inspire them on ways to begin a rewarding career in academia.
At the presentation ceremony for the Hong Kong ICT Awards on April 4, 2018, which aim to promote innovation in Information and Communications Technology (ICT), HKSAR Chief Executive Mrs Carrie Lam presented the Award of the Year to Belun Technology, the company that developed the BelunTM Ring – a globally unique device for obstructive sleep apnea pre-screening, risk analysis and post-treatment effectiveness evaluation.
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.
