Dr Ray Cheung being awarded HK$1.44 Million Gifted Education Fund
EE Department is committed to provide quality learning opportunities not only for our engineering students, but also secondary school students who are passionate in STEM. Programmes or workshops in various topics such as AI, face recognition, coding, microcontroller system, etc., were offered to secondary school students in recent years. Taking the opportunity offered by the Gifted Education (GE) Fund, Education Bureau, the Department, with the lead of Dr Ray Cheung (Associate Professor), proposed a 1-year programme to provide gifted students off-school advance learning in the topic “AIoT Coding and Engineering Skills Education”. The programme, which aims to equip gifted students with knowledge and hands-on coding ability in AI and IoT, has been selected to receive the GE fund in an amount of HK$1.44 million for implementation in Feb 2021 to Jan 2022, targeting S4 – S5 students. Participating students will also have a chance to interact with the industry. Xilinx will offer Professional Xilinx Engineer Mentorship support as well as HK$10,000 scholarship to the project.
