In Remembrance
We are deeply saddened to report that Prof Raymond Ka Man Cheung, Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management (IELM), passed away in July after a long illness bravely borne. An alumnus of Pui Ching Primary and Middle School, York University and Princeton University, Prof Cheung was a first-rate scholar and pioneering educator. Joining HKUST in 1996 as a promising young academic, he laid the foundation for logistics research and education in Hong Kong, and was instrumental in introducing the logistics management component to the School of Engineering’s IELM Department. Over his career, he received numerous honors, including the George B Dantzig Dissertation Award, and IIE Transactions’ Best Paper in Logistics and Scheduling and 2003 Publications of the Year. Prof Cheung also played a pivotal role in establishing HKUST’s bachelor program in logistics management and the Master of Technology Management (MTM) Global Logistics Management Program, two highly acclaimed programs that have nurtured talents for the industry and society at large. He will be greatly missed.
The Professor Raymond Cheung Memorial Scholarship has been established in memory of Prof Cheung. The scholarship recognizes outstanding IELM undergraduates majoring in Logistics and Engineering Management.
