Our line of distinguished faculty to explain phenomena, introduce innovations, debunk myths and share their engineering vision
"Our transition to a robotics-aided world has been so gradual but seamless that we may soon forget what life was even like before automation." Prof. LI Zexiang
"Engineering, especially computer engineering, is an amazing area. You can develop new technologies in the field and see how they change or improve people’s daily lives. That’s just more than awesome." Prof. ZHANG Qian
"When I Skype with my grandchildren on my cellphone, I enjoy seeing their most beautiful faces - on an OLED screen." Prof. TANG Ching-Wan, inventor of OLED
"AI is like a fast-running car. Data is like engine oil. Once the engine oil is refined into gas, we can propel this car to accomplish meaningful missions." Prof. YANG Qiang
"The joy of doing research is that you have the freedom to decide what problems to solve and how you can contribute to society." Prof. Irene LO
"We are naturally very excited about setting a world record. This is the first step in our research on capturing and analyzing giant photographs and videos." Prof. Pedro SANDER
"Design thinking, characterized by its divergent-convergent process, is a human-centered and creative problem-solving technique for innovation." Prof. Ravindra S. GOONETILLEKE
"To tackle complex and 'wicked' problems of the future, beyond knowledge and abilities, teamwork, creativity and grit are important skills for our students to cultivate." Dr. Winnie Suk Wai LEUNG
