A research team led by Prof. CHEN Guanghao, Chair Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, received the Bronze Medal of 2018 International Water Association (IWA) Project Innovation Awards under the category of Breakthroughs in Research and Development for their project on SANI technology.
Prof Fugee Tsung, Industrial Engineering and Decision Analytics (IEDA), and two IEDA PhD alumni Prof Yanting Li (2008) and Prof Lianjie Shu (2002) received the IISE Transactions 2018 Quality & Reliability Engineering Best Application Paper Award for their paper on “A False Discovery Approach for Scanning Spatial Disease Clusters with Arbitrary Shapes”.
A research team from the State Key Laboratory on Advanced Displays and Optoelectronics Technologies of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has developed a new Liquid-crystal display (LCD), which image resolution, energy efficiency as well as color saturation were markedly enhanced, achieving a crucial breakthrough in display technology.
Prof Marshal Liu, Chemical and Biological Engineering, received the Honorary Mention of the HKUST Common Core Teaching Excellence Award 2017 for the CENG 1800 Introduction to Food Science and Technology course.
Prof Ching W Tang, IAS Bank of East Asia Professor and Chair Professor of Electronic and Computer Engineering, Chemistry and Physics, has been inducted into the US National Inventors Hall of Fame for his ground-breaking research on organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs).
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.
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.
