In the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation, and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting held during 7 - 12 July 2019 at Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A., our faculty members, PhD student and graduates were presented with the most significant international awards and certificates for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the field of antennas and propagation.
Many EE alumni participated in the conference including Dr Bisharat Diaaaldin J M, a PhD graduate in 2019 and now a Postdoctoral Scholar at University of California San Diego, was there to receive the IEEE AP-S John Kraus Antenna Award (the highest award in the antenna field globally) on behalf of the awardee, Professor Daniel Sievenpiper, his postdoctoral supervisor.
Founded in 1949, the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society is an international and highly recognized organization active in over 40 countries. It is wonderful that our EE faculty, students and graduates were given the highest honour and extensive recognitions by this prestigious, leading international society. Please join me to congratulate all of them being so strong and distinguished in the named area!
Mr Kwong Hau Shing (CDE, Year-3) and Miss Lam Nga Wai (CDE, Year-2), who teamed up with student from Department of Mechanical Engineering, have won the Student Innovation Grand Award and the Student Innovation (Post-Secondary and Undergraduate) Gold Award at the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2019. The winning project “Talktag - NFC Audio Labeler for Visually Impaired” was developed through the TEDY (Technologies for the Elderly and Disabled People by Youths) program and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards was established in 2006 with the collaborative efforts of the industry, academia and the Government. It aims at recognizing and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong's ICT talents and enterprises in their constant pursuit of creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs. There are eight categories under the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2019. There is one Grand Award in each category and the CityU team is the champion of the Student Innovation Award. To know more about the winning project and the competition, please check the CityU News.
Two EE teams have been awarded the Champion and the First Runner-up in the Hong Kong Electronics Project Competition 2019 organized by the Electronics Division of Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).
