Laboratory named after devoted alumnus, Dr Ng Wing-hong

 

PolyU has named the laboratory for sustainable city located at Block Z, Phase 8 of its campus after a devoted alumnus Dr Ng Wing-hong. The naming ceremony, held on 3 December, was officiated by President Prof. Timothy W. Tong and Associate Dean of Faculty of Construction and Environment Prof. Geoffrey Shen, and was well attended by more than 80 participants.

Dr Ng Wing-hong is one of the first alumni of the then Government Trade School, the earliest predecessor of PolyU, and he still maintains a strong tie with PolyU. As a tribute to his commitment to the University, PolyU conferred on him the title of University Fellowship in 2005, named a teaching block on campus after him in 2008, and presented him with the Outstanding PolyU Alumni Award in 2009. Also, he earned the First Outstanding BRE Alumni Award in 2010 and was conferred by the University the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Engineering in 2011.

The Laboratory for Sustainable City is established to provide information infrastructure for examining the sustainable development of Hong Kong at the building and city level.
