Senior Alumni Homecoming – Graduates of Building and Civil and Structural Engineering

On 16 June 2022, a group of senior alumni of the Faculty of Construction and Environment came back to campus to meet with President Prof. Jing-Guang Teng. Most of them are graduates of Building and Civil and Structural Engineering, and they visited the new campus landmark – PolyU’s main entrance at Core A. Prof. Teng warmly welcomed the group at the Alumni Atrium and gave a presentation on the latest development and achievements of the University. The alumni were pleased to know that their alma mater has achieved commendable results in various world university rankings, including ranking 1st in Hong Kong in the subject “Engineering – Civil and Structural”. Touring to the main entrance, the group appreciated the new architecture on campus.  As part of the 85th Anniversary celebrations, the University has enhanced its main entrance by reconfiguring the original entrance and enlarging the forecourt, as well as introducing new design elements. Through blending PolyU’s symbolic red brick architecture with a distinctive colonnade design, the main entrance is going to be a new photo spot. The endless sharing of old-time tales among the group continued during the cozy dinner hosted by the President at the Communal Staff Restaurant. The Faculty of Construction and Environment Education and Research Fund (FCE Fund) as well as the PolyU 85th Anniversary Gift Programme were also introduced. As proud members of the PolyU family, the alumni generously supported the Fund and the Programme. Prof. Teng, together with Dr Miranda Lou, Executive Vice President, and Mr Simon Wong, Vice President (Campus Development and Facilities), were delighted to exchange ideas and views with the alumni. Sincere gratitude was also expressed for their contributions to the University, in particular advising on campus development projects and supporting the University initiatives on various fronts. They look forward to seeing the group soon in upcoming anniversary events. The dinner was filled with smiling faces and pleasant conversations, and closed with special souvenirs presented by the President.

Alumni scholars of health technology and informatics give webinar on virus detection and tracing

Organised by the Alumni Affairs and Development Office, the alumni webinar “Sherlock Holmes and John Watson amid Pandemic – Virus detection and tracing” was successfully held on 26 May 2022. Two alumni scholars were invited to “decode” the mysterious scientific letters in our life under COVID-19. They also talked about how their professions helped combat the virus and safeguard public health. Prof. Yip Shea-ping, Professor and Head of Department of Health Technology and Informatics (HTI), began his presentation by explaining the everyday COVID-19 terms and various virus detection methods. He then shared his team’s innovation of a portable nucleic acid testing device, which enables fast and accurate results on-site to contribute to anti-pandemic measures.   Dr Gilman Siu, Associate Professor of Department of HTI and Limin Young Scholar in Medical Laboratory Science, told his behind-the-scene stories of identifying local transmission chains with his rapid whole-genome sequencing technique across the different waves of outbreak. He illustrated the “Geo-phylogenetic database for COVID-19 in Hong Kong”, and revealed his recent findings on variants and strains of the virus. Dr Siu specially thanked his team for conducting whole genome sequencing round the clock since the first wave of COVID-19. We are also grateful to Prof. Yip and Dr Siu for their outstanding contributions towards the containment of virus. The informative webinar drew many questions from the audience, including our MC Ms Lesley Tang, one of the HTI graduates.
