InnoShow Award:  To encourage students to develop innovative mindset in tackling engineering and social problems, and to support outstanding ideas to join international design competitions, the Dean’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fund will appropriate an amount of HK$100K to support a maximum of five student teams participated in the InnoShow to take part in international design competitions.

A Panel to be chaired by the Associate Dean (Innovation) with the Dean of Engineering as one of the key members, will select the winning teams from the InnoShow event to be held at the end of semester 2, 2020-2021, based on the design put forward by the students, and their presentation during the InnoShow.

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.

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.

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)
