AAE Students won the Outstanding Award of ASM Technology Award 2021

The PolyU AAE student team won the ASM Technology Outstanding Award 2021. The team members include CHU Yau Hei, HO Chun Leung and LEE Yoon Jo, supervised by Dr Li Boyang. The title of their project is “Development of a Solar-Powered Unmanned Aerial Vehicle for Sustainable Flight”. To promote technological innovation in Hong Kong, ASM Technology Award proposes encouraging the growth of potential young engineers. Each year, five established local institutions, including The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The City University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and The University of Hong Kong, are invited to join the Competition by nominating two outstanding engineering Final Year Projects (FYP). This year, the nominated teams have made their impressive presentations on 30 June 2021. AAE team got the Outstanding award and HK$5,000 as a scholarship. During the final year project, the team has successfully modified a model glider into a solar-powered unmanned air vehicle with autonomous flight capability. After the field flight tests at Hong Kong Model Engineering Club (HKMEC), they showed that the solar-power system could provide 20% extended endurance. The team also published their work at the MDPI Drones journal. Our Department is proud of the outstanding performance of the PolyU AAE student team.

CHE Ka Ho BEng (Hons) Aviation Engineering Year 4 student shares exchange experience in the Australia

Country: Australia Host Institution: Queensland University of Technology (QUT) "After participating in this exchange programme, I realized that I have grown up and had significant changes. The most obvious one is becoming more independent. In the past, I always rely on my parents. For example, they did most of the housework and prepared meals for me every day. Consequently, this exchange became a big challenge for me. I had to solve problems independently and took care of myself. When I went to Brisbane, I successfully managed to take a flight and located the accommodation independently. I also learned how to cook. At the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), I registered a few courses to study. It was a very tough period because I needed to spend extra time to learn and make up for the knowledge gaps. However, after my perseverance and attempts, I received excellent grades. I have dreamed of becoming a commercial airline pilot since Secondary 5. Therefore, I took a 3-week flight training in Australia, which is globally famous for pilot training. After the intensive training in the super-hot weather, I successfully completed solo (flying a circuit around the aerodrome without flight instructors) 5 times! In this experience, I am more affirmative that being a pilot is my dream. Besides, the flight instructors and students also shared how to be an airline pilot in their countries. I have a clearer picture of my goal and know more about the career path. After living in Australia for a few weeks, I found that people in Australia really focus on environmental greening and work-life balance. In Brisbane city, there are two large parks, a huge human-made beach and an observation wheel. People love going to the parks during lunch breaks for relaxation or having a night walk after dinner. They also enjoy organizing some family events in the parks on weekends. I like this lifestyle so much!"                   Visiting Brighton Beach in Melbourne                   Visiting 12 Apostle in Melbourne                 Hangout with new friends in a market in Brisbane
