The new iconic landmark of the Faculty
Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing
The Tam Wing Fan Innovation Wing will be located on the G/F and LG/F of the existing Hui Oi Chow Science Building, covering 2,400m² of floor area. This iconic landmark is expected to be completed by 2020 and will be a new facility on the main campus to nurture innovation and creativity of our future engineers.
The Innovation Wing provides an open environment to foster interdisciplinary innovations among students and teachers. The provision of state-of-the-art facilities in a collaborative space will enable curriculum innovations that emphasise hands-on and experiential learning activities. The Innovation Wing will be a platform to engage young generation to explore the world, create opportunities for them to learn about the needs of the underprivileged, and acquire practical hands-on experience in developing solutions with real-world impact.
The establishment of the Innovation Wing will create an atmosphere of Creativity, Openness, and Vibrancy.
It will create a nurturing learning and research environment to foster creative minds and innovative culture of the students and staff members.
The transparent design of the Innovation Wing denotes a welcoming design between student activities carried out in the Innovation Wing and the people passing by in the University Street. It is a golden opportunity to showcase the achievements of HKU Engineering to the public.
The Innovation Wing will facilitate active student-initiated hands-on and experiential learning activities.
