Knowledge Exchange (KE), together with Teaching and Research, form the three pillars that underpin all the activities of The University of Hong Kong (HKU). The University defines KE as engaging, for mutual benefit, with business, government or the public to generate, acquire, apply and make accessible the knowledge needed to enhance material, human, social, cultural and environmental well-being.
The Faculty of Engineering has a long tradition of contributing to the community, and our faculty members have been engaging in a wide range of knowledge exchange activities through contract research, technology transfer, public lectures, media and publication, and internship. KE, being a natural consequence of research and teaching, is at the heart of the wide range of activities that our faculty members undertake with the non-academic sectors of our society.
As a centre of intellectual development, creativity and informed social awareness, the Faculty of Engineering will strive to ensure that KE contributes to regional and global development, and increase the opportunities for staff and students to benefit from the commercialization and application of their expertise.
