About Engineering InnoShow

The Engineering InnoShow is a showcase carnival that celebrates innovative Engineering student projects at the end of every semester​. 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. There are many reasons why Engineering InnoShow is a unique concoction of its missions and vision. We offer a vibrant, inter/multi-disciplinary and hands-on learning platform for students to create their own impact, in and out of the classroom. The showcases also paint junior fellows a concrete picture of what constitutes an exemplary work and open pathways for them to look at Engineering through the lens of their senior cohorts, whether they are from Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Environmental Engineering. We believe that Engineering united with hands-on experience is essential. It is our vision to inspire a generation of intrepid explorers and committed collaborators. At Engineering InnoShow, we are transmitting knowledge and values through narrative. Whether it is communicated in layman’s terms or field-specific terminologies, we hope that the seeds of creative minds will germinate and thrive.

Innovation Wing affiliated
Student Interest Groups

A number of Innovation Wing affiliated Student Interest Groups are invited to showcase their experiential learning projects and technologies at the Engineering InnoShow.

Coordinator: Dr. C.K. Chui (Director of Innovation Wing)

ENGG1320 Engineers in Modern World

This is an introductory course designed for first-year Engineering students. The course aims to enable students to learn about engineering in the modern world, with an emphasis on engineering businesses, systems, and entrepreneurship, and how to bring new ideas to market in both engineering startups and corporate settings. The main objective is to provide students with a broad knowledge of how engineering entrepreneurship plays a key role in the global economy. Students will learn to explore and critique entrepreneurship as a systematic approach to designing, launching, and running an engineering business that offers a product, process or service for sale.

Coordinator: Dr. Ray Zhong (Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering)

CIVL4102 Final year project

The primary aim of the project is to give each individual student an opportunity to handle a practical engineering problem and to present the findings in a precise and concise report. An important part of the project lies in the way in which the students plan and carry out the task, and apply their engineering knowledge sensibly and diligently to solve the problem. The way in which the students present their findings is equally important.

Coordinator: Dr Sergio Lourenco (Department of Civil Engineering)

CIVL2110 Experiential learning

This course offered by the Civil Engineering Department requires the student to complete a period of training in the industry, workshop training, study tour, or leadership program, approved by the Head of Department, not less than a total of four weeks during the summer semester, subject to satisfactory performance in these activities and the submission of a satisfactory completion report.

Coordinator: Dr. C.P. Wong Ryan (Department of Civil Engineering)

ELEC3848 Integrated Design Project ​

This course aims at providing students in small teams an opportunity to apply and integrate their knowledge in electrical and electronic engineering courses, as well as project management, to implement a practical system. At the beginning of the course, students are guided to acquire skills in using hardware and software development tools through a sequence of laboratory exercises. Students then begin working on the project. Regular lecture and tutorial sessions are conducted to help students throughout the process. Besides implementing the system to the required project specification, students are encouraged to extend the project with their own inputs.

MECH4429 Capstone Integrated Experience

This is a compulsory, capstone experience course in the final year of the BEng in Mechanical Engineering degree programme. Students are required to undertake a group design project that runs from September to April of the following year. The project topics are stipulated either by teachers or by industrial sponsors. Each project group has two teachers acting as supervisors and an additional teacher serving as moderator. During the course of the project, supervisors communicate with the students and the concerned project sponsor to monitor the project progress. At the completion of the project, each project student presents his/her achievements to the supervisors, moderator and sponsor via a written report and an oral presentation. This course aims to: (1) provide a problem-based learning experience for students to learn how to apply scientific knowledge and team-work approach to tackle design/engineering problems systematically, and (2) strengthen students’ interpersonal and communication skills through interaction with teammates, supervisors and sponsors.
Typical project activities include problem identification & definition; research into information pertaining to the problem, design & analysis; materials sourcing; communication; conducting experiments/making prototypes for verification and demonstration of results; writing reports and giving oral presentations.
