Project Mingde was established by the Department of Civil Engineering in 2004. It provides an open platform for nurturing our students to acquire not only hard skills, but also to possess soft skills, such as a sense of social responsibility by participating in real-world on-going civil engineering projects in remote impoverished regions in China and other Asian countries. Project Mingde attracts not only Civil Engineering students, but also students from other disciplines and institutions to participate in this meaningful programme. Students would have personal growth through this experiential learning opportunity and participation in various real-life projects while providing education in impoverished localities in China.
