Student Achievements 2015
Miss Wang Shiqi (ECE student, year 4), has won the 2015 Eugene F. Knott Memorial Pre-Doctoral Research Award presented by IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S). Her winning project proposal is called "Design of Decorative Unidirectional Glass Antenna for WiFi Router" which is supervised by Prof K W Leung. AP-S awards up to six pre-doctoral scholarships each year to encourage students to pursue a career in the area of electromagnetics and our student is one of the recipients this year.
PhD student, Miss Guo Lei, has been awarded the Student Best Paper Award at 2015 International Workshop on Electromagnetics: Applications and Student Innovation Competition for her paper “Compact Omnidirectional Circularly Polarized Dielectric Resonator Antenna”, which was supervised by Prof K W Leung. The competition aims to provide an opportunity for students to present technical know-how and demonstrate outstanding research works related to electromagnetics applications to unfold personal charisma. There were 9 papers shortlisted to the final round and our student has been selected to be the Champion..
Mr Mui Ka Tsun, ECE graduate in 2015, has won the Silver Award of HKEIA Innovation & Technology Project Competition Award 2015. His winning Final Year Project, supervised by Dr Andy Chan, is titled “Scalable Artistic LED Bar for Light Painting”.
Jointly organized by The Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association (HKEIA) and Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association Education Foundation (HKEIAEF), the Award is designed to recognize and reward students with outstanding final year projects which demonstrate excellence in technology and innovation.
Two PhD students, Mr Fan Wing To and Mr Tung Chung Pui have been awarded the HKIE Outstanding Paper Award for Young Engineers/Researchers 2015 for their paper “An Integration of Series-pass Device into Switched-mode Power Converters for Input Harmonics Filtering”, which was supervised by Prof Henry Chung. The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) organizes such a competition each year aiming to encourage young engineers and researchers to publish their works and develop in their professional fields, as well as to promote the engineering advancement among the younger generation.
Two PhD students have recently received the Young Scientist Award at 2015 IEEE TENCON.
- Mr Lin Wei, supervised by Dr Steve Wong, for the paper "Emerging Reconfigurable Antenna Elements for Broadband Wireless Communication Systems".
- Miss Zhang Jieqiong, supervised by Prof Wong Hei, for the paper “XPS Study on the Effect of Thermal Annealing on the CeO2/La2O3 Stacked Gate Dielectrics”.
Held annually since 1980, TENCON provides an important forum for researchers, engineers, professors and graduate students to network and to discuss new ideas/development in emerging areas of electrical and engineering, computers science and related fields.
Two EE 2014 graduates, Mr CHAN Hung Kit (CE) and Mr TUNG Chung Pui (CE), have won Champion Award in the Student Project Competition 2014 -15 organized by The Institute of Measure and Control (Hong Kong Section). Their winning project is titled “Smartphone Controlled Quadcopter” which was supervised by Dr Ricky Lau.
Three EE students, namely TANG Tsz Wan (INFE, 2013 entering major), CHAN Wai San (INFE, 2012 entering major) and CHAN Ka Yi (INFE, 2012 entering major), formed a team and won the Third Prize in the 13th Guangdong Province Collegiate Programming Contest which was held in May 2015 and was jointly organized by Computer Academy of Guangdong and Sun Yat-sen University. The team has been trained by Dr Taejoon Kim, Assistant Professor of EE, on programming skills throughout the academic year 2014/15.
This year, totally 221 teams participated in which 6 teams were from CityU, 195 teams were from Colleges or Universities in Guangdong Province and 20 teams were from National tertiary institutions. Each team had to solve a total of 12 programming problems in 5 hours using programming language C, C++ or Java. Teams were ranked according to the most problems solved by least total time.
Prof K M Luk, Chair Professor of EE, and his PhD student, Mr LI Yujian, have recently received the Best Paper Award in the 2015 IEEE 4th Asia Pacific Conference on Antennas and Propagation for the paper entitled “A Transparent Water Dielectric Antenna”. There were 286 accepted papers, in which 7 papers were shortlisted to compete for this single award.
The Asia-Pacific Conference on Antennas and Propagation is an international forum for the exchange of information on the progress and recent advancements in the research and development of innovative antenna technology and radio wave propagation.
Two EE students, Mr LAI Chun Tak and Mr YIM Man To (ECE, 2013 entering major), who teamed up with 3 students from Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, have won the Championship in the HKIE Student Chapter Joint Institutes Competition 2014/15. The winning project is about developing a system that can convert 80% of the thermal energy released by air-conditioners into electric energy.
Jointly organized by Student Chapter of The Hong Kong Institute of Engineer (HKIE) and the HKIE divisions, the theme of the competition this year is “Green Living in Hong Kong”. It aims to inspire students to create innovative solutions with the application of the latest engineering technology to improve our living environment and create a sustainable world.
EPD Competition is an annual activity for ECE students taking EE3003 / EE3004 Electronic Product Design. The competition aims at promoting the interest of our students in learning electronics and developing students’ generic skills through project learning. Two semesters of planning and hard work has brought 6 selected teams putting their electronic design and programming knowledge to the test.
The theme of this year is Smart Robot Car. Using an Arduino based robot, the goal is to pick a plastic cube and deliver it to a bin through a hoop after travelling on a customized track to test maneuverability. The students utilized DesignSpark PCB to complete their PCB layout designs with component sponsorship by RS Components International.
Judging criteria included the speed of completion, efficiency of the pickup, delivery, track guidance system, and the overall design of the robot. Congratulations to the winning teams!
