Aviation Research Consortium
To be in line with the strategic areas of the University, the Aviation Engineering research group under the Department of Aeronautical and Aviation Engineering (AAE) establishes a departmental Aviation Research Consortium (ARC). Our research covers air transport operations, air traffic management, airline and airport operations management, air mobility, sustainable air transport system, aviation safety and reliability, human factors and ergonomics.
According to IATA, over 50% of international tourists travel by air, and efficient air transport system could contribute to human well-being and living standard. Meanwhile, aircraft emissions and noise negatively affect the health of the population and climate change. In light of the projected further increase in the total air traffic volume and rapid growth in the aviation industry in Asia, the need for state-of-the-art and comprehensive knowledge, idea generation, engineering research and design in safe, sustainable, efficient, and resilient air transport systems are becoming essential. The Aviation Research Consortium (ARC) will provide rigorous research and analysis on aviation-related issues and explore solutions to tackle the key social, economic and environmental challenges in relation to the aviation industry.

Targets and Vision
The consortium will serve as a major platform to host and facilitate different activities, such as seminars, laboratory and industrial visits, research collaborations and student activities in aviation, and aims to become an influential think tank in GBA for aviation industry.
The ARC is striving for achieving its vision and mission by completing the following objectives:
- To provide public services in aviation-related programmes with a focus on education, research, and training for the public and industrial benefits.
- To develop impactful applied research in air transport operations and aviation engineering with societal impacts under the support of research grants.
- To nurture the aviation research talents for PolyU, Hong Kong, GBA, and the Asia Pacific regions.
- To offer innovative solutions in aviation research to the industry and government bodies.
- To formulate a strong aviation academic talent hub with close research collaboration both locally and internationally.
