    Novel 3D imaging technology to make fluorescence microscopy more efficient and push the boundaries of living cells research

    Scientists have been using fluorescence microscopy to study the inner workings of biological cells and organisms for decades. However, many of these platforms are often too slow to follow the biological action in 3D; and too damaging to the living biological specimens with strong light illumination. To address these challenges, a research team led by Dr Kevin Tsia, Associate Professor of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Programme Director of Bachelor of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering, developed a new optical imaging technology - Coded Light-sheet Array Microscopy (CLAM) – which can perform 3D imaging at high speed, and is power efficient and gentle to preserve the living specimens during scanning at a level that is not achieved by existing technologies.

    Virtual admissions talks for promoting undergraduate studies at HKU Engineering

    Aiming at giving more information to the local and non-local applicants, the Faculty has been organising a series of virtual talk to promote undergraduate studies since March, 2020. The talks were focused on different aspects, including “Innovating a Better Future”, “Engineering Across the Fields and Over the Seas” and “An Exceptional Engineering Study Experience”. Besides, members of the Engineering Admissions Committee were invited to join the Q&A sessions and answered questions from the potential students.
