A group of ME graduates won the Bronze Award in the HKEIA (The Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association) Innovation and Technology Project Competition 2018.  The award ceremony took place at the HKEIA Annual Dinner on 15 Oct 2018.

The Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association has been running the competition annually with an objective to recognize and reward students with outstanding projects which demonstrate excellence in technology and innovation.  Final year students studying in engineering fields from universities and tertiary institutions in Hong Kong are invited to participate in the competition with their final year projects.  Judging criteria include creativity, applicability and practicability, and application of technology.  The panel of judges consists of senior professionals and experts from the industry.

PolyU ME final year students, KONG Miu Shan, WONG Yat Yuen and TSE Hung Kwan, teamed up for the final year project named “Design, Assemble and Test the Electric Power Supply System for Formula Student Car”, under the supervision of Dr Henry CHU and Ir Elsa TANG.  The project aimed at designing and promoting a newly developed powertrain system to the market. Their sophisticated supply system and formula car project won praise from the panel of judges and obtained the Bronze Award with a cash prize of HK$10,000.

Members of this group were graduates of BEng (Hons) in Product Analysis and Engineering Design in 2018.  They are also active members of the PolyU Racing Team (Formula SAE), devoted to developing a brand new racing car to join the Formula Student Electric China Competition every year.
