Engineering students shine in local competitions

Jan 21, 2018

IMSE students won the championship of HKIE Young Engineer Programme 2016/17

Young Engineer Programme 2016/2017 aims at broadening the horizon of participants (Yeppers), as well as to promote the Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering (MIE) profession. In order to achieve these aims through inspiration, Yeppers were encouraged to attend a series of seminars and technical visits.

The programme was held from October 2016 to March 2017. During the programme, a wide range of MIE applications/real practices in the society were demonstrated to the Yeppers through Local and China Visits.

After the local visits, Yeppers had a 20 minutes team presentation in March 2017 to share their experience on the programme and how they can inspire the future students to join the YEP in order to meet the theme of “Smart Manufacturing”.



IMSE student team won the Champion of the Maritime & Logistics Hackathon 2017

Student team consisted of Fernaldy Soegianto, Shun Haginouchi and Wu Jian Tony from Department of IMSE won the Champion of the Maritime & Logistics Hackathon 2017.

The Hackathon is one of the feature events in the Hong Kong Maritime Week. Participants were given a set of carrier service network and vessel sailing schedule data for completing the work within 40 hours.

This event invites participants to provide innovative ideas with supportive data. It is intended to promote the maritime and logistics industries among University students though this event, demonstrating how modern technologies could be beneficial to these traditional industries.



CS PhD Candidate is selected for HKIS-Towngas Young Scientist Award
