The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is enhancing its efforts in promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education in Hong Kong. With the support of its faculty, staff, students and alumni, HKUST has recently launched an interactive platform to help spark junior high students’ inquisitiveness and support local teachers in teaching STEM subjects in Hong Kong.
Forty-one students from five local secondary schools recently spent an unforgettable four days learning about electric vehicles (EV) and actually building and driving them! This was made possible through the four-day EV Summer Program co-organized by the Academy for Bright Future Young Engineers of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and CLP Holdings Limited (CLP). The Academy is funded by a donation from the Bright Future Charitable Foundation, which is founded and chaired by Prof Roy Chung.
The School of Engineering of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is launching a new undergraduate program in Bioengineering that offers students the opportunity to conduct research in elite overseas universities, and at the same time nurtures leaders in biomedical technology and big data in support of the Hong Kong government’s focused effort to spearhead the development of these fields.
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is launching a transformative new degree program in Integrative Systems and Design (ISD), which will revolutionize traditional teaching method as students will study systems design not through fixed curriculum, but project-based learning in teams where the “what” and “how” to learn are individualized.
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 Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and the University of Toronto (U of T), the top-ranked university in Canada, have established joint educational placements which aim to maximize the opportunities for joint supervision of PhD students and further facilitate engineering related research collaboration between HKUST’s School of Engineering and U of T’s Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.
Mechanical Engineering final year undergraduate Urvil Sheth and his teammates developed a MemoTV for the elderly in the Design Thinking course collaborated by HKUST and the China Academy of Art. He shared how the team turned the novel concept to a real product in just four weeks and the satisfaction behind which enabled him to experience what true engineering is.
Three PhD students of Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management at HKUST demonstrated their audio technology research to the parents of hearing-impaired children on October 7, enabling parents with normal hearing to experience what their hearing-impaired children are listening to every day.
