About Engineering InnoShow

The Engineering InnoShow is a showcase carnival that celebrates innovative Engineering student projects at the end of every semester​. Participating students will have the opportunity to expound on their inventive design, research and projects; harness timely and constructive feedback given by peers, teachers, industry experts and the public through knowledge exchange; and spin talent and ideas into innovative (re)inventions. There are many reasons why Engineering InnoShow is a unique concoction of its missions and vision. We offer a vibrant, inter/multi-disciplinary and hands-on learning platform for students to create their own impact, in and out of the classroom. The showcases also paint junior fellows a concrete picture of what constitutes an exemplary work and open pathways for them to look at Engineering through the lens of their senior cohorts, whether they are from Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Environmental Engineering. We believe that Engineering united with hands-on experience is essential. It is our vision to inspire a generation of intrepid explorers and committed collaborators. At Engineering InnoShow, we are transmitting knowledge and values through narrative. Whether it is communicated in layman’s terms or field-specific terminologies, we hope that the seeds of creative minds will germinate and thrive.

Participating courses

Featured Engineering Experiential Learning Projects

A number of Engineering experiential learning project teams are invited to showcase their innovative project works at the Engineering InnoShow.

Coordinator: Dr. C.K.Chui (Director, Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing, Faculty of Engineering)

COMP3330 Interactive Mobile Application Design and Programming

This course introduces the techniques for developing interactive mobile applications on Android platform. Topics include user interface design, graphics, parallel computing, database, network, multimedia, sensors and location service. Trends and tools for developing applications on various mobile platforms are also discussed. Students participate in both individual assignments and group projects to practice ideation, reading, writing, coding and presentation skills.

Coordinator: Dr. T.W. Chim (Department of Computer Science)

Year 1 Engineering course
ENGG1320 Engineers in the Modern World

This is an introductory course designed for first year Engineering students. The course aims to enable students to learn about engineering in the modern world, with an emphasis on engineering businesses, systems, and entrepreneurship, and how to bring new ideas to market in both engineering startups and corporate settings. The main objective is to provide students with a broad knowledge on how engineering entrepreneurship plays a key role in the global economy. Students will learn to explore and critique entrepreneurship as a systematic approach to designing, launching and running an engineering business that offers a product, process or service for sale.

Coordinator: Dr. Ray Y. Zhong
(Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering)

Featured Workshop
HKU M2 Robotics team: 眀徳 格物

The HKU M2 Robotics is a multidisciplinary community for students who are passionate in advanced robotics. The team has achieved the 1st runner up in the Hong Kong Robocon robotic competition 2019. Members of the team will showcase their robots and explain their design and competition strategy during the workshop.

Organizing committee
Austin
Biomedical Engineering
Computing & Data Analytics
Design Specialist
My name is Austin. I am doing a double major in Biomedical Engineering and Computing & Data Analytics at the University of Hong Kong. My interest lies in advanced technology, building robots and coding. I am actively participating in Robocon, have experience in chatbot, app and web development. I hope that through InnoWing I get to continue my passion in working on new and exciting project.
Timothy
Mechanical Engineering
Design Specialist
Leader of the Vayu Robotic Fish team
R.A. in the Dept. of Orthopedics and Traumatology

Timothy's interest lies in the intersection between the arts and sciences. He believes creativity and innovation come by working through with challenging and complex problems, which requires the ability to quickly cycle through different perspectives and approaches to the problems. His background and experience lie in engineering, design, and business, providing a diverse garden to cherry pick from. It is only through understanding others can we truly understand the big picture. You can find him hacking away at his little fish, if you're lost as to how to start your project, or where to go, he's the person you should find, you'll be back with your own bed of roses.

I believe ideas only take you a tenth of the way. Everyone has ideas, but seldom do they act on it. Execution is key.
The most common reason people fail at execution is either the lack of knowledge or lack of resources. Our objective with Inno Wing is to create a platform for ingenious students to innovate and bring their ideas to life. It will not only provide resources but also practical skills to help students achieve their goals.
Desmond
Computer Engineering
Multimedia specialist
Desmond is an experienced Software Developer, Multimedia Producer with a demonstrated history of working in the higher education industry. Skilled in Mobile Application Development, Multimedia Production, Game Development, and Web Development. I believe that other than technical skills, how we can influence, or even inspire others with the use of multimedia is equally important. Having been engaged in a number of video production projects, including commercial advertisement production, I hope that I will be able to create stunning and influential videos for the InnoWing, making it truly a platform to spark innovation.

Knowledge is power, but thinking outside the box is gold.   The university gave us a very good opportunity to gain knowledge, but gaining knowledge is not enough. I always feel like knowledge is just like pieces of a Go game, what you can do with it is endless. When you put the pieces together, each piece can have multiple functions and it all depends on how you put them together.  Simple ideas united into one can most definitely change the world. Think different, live different, make a change.
Vienne Lin
Communication and Applied Linguistics
Pedagogical Specialist
As a Communication and Applied Linguistics graduate, Vienne has always loved the writing and thinking processes. Her insatiable curiosity has led her to observe, learn and absorb as much as she can from those around her. She believes words hold power. Through narrative, students can transport each other to different realms and see what they can’t see.

My hobby is to make something cool. Through the making process, Makers have to overcome barriers like technical challenges, time management, frustration, procrastination... These experience is unique every time and it makes life fun too. Students may have learned a lot in school, and MAKE is the process to check their skill level. For me, learning is a life-long process, let's make something fun and we can all learn from it.
