Triple Success in President's Cup
Students from the School of Engineering demonstrated their enterprising approach to technology and presentation skills by taking all three awards in the President's Cup 2013 for the second consecutive year. The annual contest at HKUST aims to boost creativity and communication capabilities among undergraduates.
A Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering team comprising San Hung Choi, Yee Man Choi, Kwong Mun Kwok and Chui Hung Yau won the President's Cup, the top prize, for their innovative project on micro-mini pulsed electric field technology for point-of-use disinfection of tap water. The team was supervised by Prof King Lun Yeung.
The Gold Award went to Chun Pan Ho, Hong Yee Kow and Zijian Wang, three Civil and Environmental Engineering students supervised by Prof Charles W W Ng, for their research on environmentally friendly green slope engineering. 
Another Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering team took the Silver Award. Ka Hei Ho, Yuen Man Ip, Siu Man Ng, Ping Hei Shing and Andrea Villaroman, supervised by Prof Ying Chau, collected the third prize for their work on endothelial cell-adhesive injectable hydrogel as an endovascular embolizing agent.
