Signing of MoU between PolyU and HKIAA

PolyU and HKIAA sign MOU to cultivate young talents and conduct research for the aviation industry

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and The Hong Kong International Aviation Academy (HKIAA) signed a two-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) with an aim of contributing to the local aviation industry by cultivating talents and conducting aviation-related research projects with joint efforts. Leveraging on HKIAA’s extensive experience in talent nurturing, together with PolyU’s competence in scientific research, the parties will work closely to develop training programmes for the aviation industry, as well as optimise the execution of such programmes and the collaboration in promotion. In addition, one of the highlights of the MoU is to jointly conduct aviation-related research projects. The pair is committed to exchanging professional knowledge and experience of training and research and sharing such resources as training facilities and flight simulators, so as to maximise the synergy to cultivate talents for the industry. Witnessed by Prof. Wing Tak WONG, Deputy President and Provost of PolyU, and Mr CK NG, CEO of HKIA Services Holdings Ltd., the MoU was signed by Ir Prof. H.C. MAN, Dean of Faculty of Engineering, PolyU, and Ir Simon LI, President of HKIAA, at the signing ceremony held on PolyU campus. The Dean of Faculty of Engineering at PolyU, Ir Professor H.C. Man said, “This is a timely collaboration between PolyU and HKIAA for professional human resources development in order to support the rapid and imminent growth of our aviation industry in Hong Kong. We will work on various professional training programmes as well as research and development projects to groom our young generation in Hong Kong to be the key stakeholders in this pillar industry.” Ir Simon Li, President of HKIAA said, “We can foresee that the completion of the third runway system at Hong Kong International Airport in 2024 will create more opportunities. There is a greater need than ever for talented individuals to join the aviation industry. We look forward to working together with PolyU to attract, develop and nurture young talent to support the sustainable growth of the aviation industry in Hong Kong and throughout the region.” In spite of the challenges faced by the global aviation industry due to the pandemic, it is believed that the new opportunities ahead for the development of the industry are substantial. Through the cooperation with HKIAA, PolyU expects to make contributions to the aviation industry in Hong Kong.

ASM Award 2022

AAE Students Shine in ASM Technology Award 2022

AAE students Mr CHONG Man Ho, Ms LAM Hok Sam and Mr YIU Cho Yin won the Outstanding Award in the ASM Technology Award 2022. The team was supervised by Dr NG Kam Hung. The title of their project is " Towards safe and collaborative aerodrome operations: Assessing shared situational awareness for adverse weather detection with EEG-enabled Bayesian neural networks". The ASM Technology Award is launched by ASM Pacific Technology Limited (ASMPT) in 2015 for final year students in Hong Kong. It promotes excellent technology, and honours the best and brightest students with their outstanding final year projects on technology and innovation. Every 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). The nominated teams made their impressive presentations on 30 June 2022. AAE team won the Outstanding Award and received HK$5,000 as a scholarship. Inspired by the Tenerife airport disaster, their final year project aims to evaluate the impact of a proposed enhancement in communication protocol on cognitive workload. The team successfully developed a human-centred classification model to identify hazardous meteorological conditions using Bayesian neural network. Experiences were carried out to collect Electroencephalography (EEG) data from 30 groups of subjects in taxiing tasks under two different visibility conditions and two different communication protocols. Using the concept of explainable artificial intelligence, latent mental patterns were explored through Shapley Additive Explanations (SHAP) to reveal vital physiological indicators. The model can facilitate the decision to provide automation and decision-making aids to pilots under adverse weather conditions. Our Department is proud of the outstanding performance of the PolyU AAE student team. Congratulations to the team!
