The School of Engineering had the pleasure of hosting 67 top engineering students at bachelor’s or master’s level who demonstrated outstanding academic performance and research capabilities at the Summer Camp for Elite Students at HKUST on July 7-13, 2019.
In Hong Kong, 1 in 6 couples struggles to get pregnant, compared to 1 in 10 two decades ago. In China, the infertility rate has risen to 12-15% from just 2.5% in the early 1990s. Many couples have begun to seek medical help to fulfil their desire to have a baby – there are 50 million patients with fertility problems in China. Listening to Dr. SHU Yiwei Ervin, current student of MPhil Program in Technology Leadership and Entrepreneurship (TLE) offered by the Division of Integrative Systems and Design of HKUST's School of Engineering, talk about the pain involved in the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) process, and his hope that his startup can eventually increase the success rate of the procedure, is both moving and inspiring.
Dr. YU Xianghao, a 2018 PhD graduate from the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering (ECE), has been named the winner of the School of Engineering (SENG) PhD Research Excellence Award 2018-19.
Walking through the HKUST campus, alumni Associate Professor YEUNG Sai-Kit and Assistant Professor CHEN Qifeng are almost indistinguishable from the students surrounding them. Both scholars returned to their alma mater and joined the School of Engineering (SENG) in 2018. In addition to being passionate about teaching and research, both are of an entrepreneurial bent and have founded innovative start-ups.
Shanghai Xiao-i Robot Technology Co. Ltd (“Xiao-i”), a leading developer of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and industry application platforms, and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (“HKUST”) signed a framework agreement today to jointly establish the HKUST - Xiao-i Joint Laboratory on Machine Learning and Cognitive Reasoning (“Joint Lab”).
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) today launched the “Sustainable Smart Campus as a Living Lab” (SSC) – an initiative that transforms the campus into a testing ground for learning, experimenting, and advancing smart and innovative ideas to address real-life challenges.
