What I Wish I Had Learned At Graduate School

Decades ago I was a graduate student myself. I graduated from the University of Hong Kong and traveled to the United States for graduate studies. I didn’t know much about graduate school life, and how I should make use of this invaluable period of my life. Looking back, I wish someone had told me what I should expect for the few years of PhD research life...

MRI-Guided Surgical Robot Project Wins Best Award in Leading International Robotics Conference
May 2018
...The HKU engineers comprises seven students, Ms Guo Ziyan, Mr Dong Ziyang, Mr Lee Kit-hang, Mr Cheung Chim-lee, Mr Fu Hing-choi, Mr Justin Ho Di-lang, and Mr He Haokun, supervised by Dr Kwok Ka-wai of the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering. Guo Ziyan is the first author of the awarded conference paper. This is the first time ever that the award is conferred to a female engineer as the paper’s first author since its establishment in 1993. Throughout the project, the HKU engineering work was supported with the strong clinical input from Dr Danny Chan Tat-ming and Professor Poon Wai-Sang at Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, CUHK.

Miss Huihua Li’s Team is the Champion of the Interdisciplinary Research Competition (IRC) 2018
April 2018
Miss Huihua LI, a first-year PhD student supervised by Professor Min Wang in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, led a team in the Interdisciplinary Research Competition (IRC) 2018 and the team emerged as the Champion of this year’s competition. The IRC is jointly organized by the Graduate House, Postgraduate Student Association and Graduate School of The University of Hong Kong to promote interdisciplinary research amongst postgraduate students. Eight teams of postgraduate students were selected as the finalists in IRC 2018 and the final was held on April 20, 2018. Each team presented their interdisciplinary research project and answered questions raised by the judges and audience. Miss Li’s team, adeptly named the “Dancing Ear Group”, consisted of five research students from Engineering Faculty’s Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering Departments, presented their project “3D Printing System for Cartilage Repair” which employs 3D printing, hydrogel materials, growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells to create novel cell-scaffold constructs for cartilage tissue regeneration. The interdisciplinarity and novelty of the project and outstanding performance of the team led to their winning championship.

PhD Candidates Receive U21 Graduate Collaborative Research Award for Advancing Building Energy Model Construction to Support Building Energy Retrofits
December 2017
Huaquan Ying, Qiuchen Lu and Hui Zhou, PhD candidates from the Department of Civil Engineering under the supervision of Dr Sanghoon Lee, have won the Universitas 21 (U21) Graduate Collaborative Research Award 2017. The awarded project, ‘Imagebased As-is Building Energy Model (BEM) Construction to Support Building Energy Retrofits’, aims to develop an image-based methodology to construct as-is BEM geometry models for existing buildings using an automatic, rapid and economic approach. As-is BEM is commonly used to assess the energy performance of existing buildings as well as to quantify potential energy savings from energy retrofit measures...

Ms Sze Yi MAK, Sibyl received 2nd Runner-up of Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition 2017
Mar 6, 2017
Putting years of research into a 3-minute speech is no easy task and presenting it explicitly in an appealing way to the general public is even more challenging. 3MT is a very unique experience compared to all my previous academic talks. It provides me an opportunity to share on stage my research in a non-technical way with people of diverse background...
