The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) organised the first “Engineering InnoShow” to showcase over 50 innovative Engineering student projects at Haking Wong Podium of HKU on April 30, 2019, where engineering students enthusiastically introduced their projects to visitors.
The Engineering InnoShow is a showcase carnival that celebrates innovative Engineering student projects at the end of every semester. The showcase offers a vibrant, interdisciplinary and hands-on learning platform for students to create their own impact, in and out of the classroom. The showcases also paint a concrete picture of what constitutes an exemplary work and open pathways for junior students to look at Engineering through the lens of senior students. Participating students will have the opportunity to expound on their inventive design, research and projects; harness timely and constructive feedback given by peers, teachers, industry experts and the public through knowledge exchange; and spin talent and ideas into innovative (re)inventions. The Engineering InnoShow is a unique concoction of its missions and vision.
To encourage more students to join the Show and to promote innovative student projects, a number of awards were presented, including The Dean’s Fund Award; Microsoft Innovation Prize and the Best Project Award.
Dr Chui Chun-kit, Director of Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing (Inno Wing) said, “We believe that Engineering knowledge combined with hands-on experience is essential. It is our vision to inspire a generation of intrepid explorers and committed collaborators. At the Engineering InnoShow, the seeds of creative minds will germinate and thrive.”
Dr Henry Lau, Associate Dean (Innovation) of Faculty of Engineering conveyed, “The Engineering InnoShow marks the first event of Inno Wing which is expected to be completed by 2020. The Inno Wing is a collaborative hub where we envision to groom students with creative, interdisciplinary and hands-on skills to offer solutions to societal problems.”
