Exploring the World of an Engineer

Secondary school students were introduced to the multifaceted field of engineering as well as life at HKUST through three dynamic Engineering Exploration Day events, organized by the School on campus in November and May. Over 2,600 students attended in total.

A range of programs and activities enabled secondary school students to explore the many fascinating areas embraced by engineering and technology. These included talks on great ideas related to engineering, an introduction to engineering programs, lab and campus tours, and robot displays.

"Secondary school students learn about science and mathematics, but they do not have a chance to study engineering," said Prof Hong K Lo, Associate Dean of Engineering. He noted that the exploration days helped students become aware of how engineering had shaped modern society and what the next exciting breakthroughs may be.
