Housed in Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing One, the Innovation Academy was established to nurture future innovators to generate impactful ideas and products. By organising a series of programmes and activities that achieve three goals of Inspire, Equip and Showcase, it serves as a magnet to attract new talents to work together on innovative projects.
This showcase carnival enables students to demonstrate the outcome of learning and showcase their creations at the end of every semester. Students can illustrate their inventive designs and demonstrate their research and projects. They can also harness constructive feedback from peers, teachers, industry experts and the public through knowledge exchange, and spin their ideas into innovative (re)inventions.
A magnet for talents,
a platform to stimulate.
Inspirational programmes and activities
A series of programmes and activities are designed to capture three goals: Inspire, Equip and Showcase, and to encourage think-out-of-the-box mindset within students. We will also engage teachers, students and stakeholders like industry advisors.
InnoHub connects students from the ten faculties at HKU
for cross-disciplinary collaboration and to prepare them
for addressing the grand challenges of the world.
Pitch your innovative ideas
Students make use of this opportunity to present their
innovative ideas and recruit prospective teammates and
academic advisors. It helps to improve students’ ability to
effectively advocate an idea or project to a large group of
audience. It also allows flexibility for students to form their
own teams and grow their community of interest and passion.
Sharing and workshops
Distinguished innovators, entrepreneurs, industry leaders, academic staff, researchers and alumni are invited to give inspirational sharing on innovation-related topics and their
success stories. It also creates opportunities for active exchange and learning of hands-on skills and advanced technologies.
This student-run experiential activity provides students with opportunities to design, develop and teach a course on a technology-related topic under the supervision of a Faculty Advisor. By teaching a course of special interest which is not covered in formal engineering curriculum, the process of “learning by teaching” helps to train students’ confidence, organisation and communication skills.
Funding Scheme for student projects and activities by Tam Wing Fan Innovation Fund and Philomathia Foundation Innovation Fund
The Scheme aims to support the development of creative student projects/ activities for tackling emerging complex engineering problems in the world. The funded projects/ activities focus on out-of classroom learning experiences with the aim of aligning with the vision and missions of the Faculty of Engineering and the Innovation Academy.
