各位同學、校友與同事:

本系在推廣學位課程的海報採用了火災圖片,引起廣泛關注,現就此事件作出以下回應。

海報上圖片原意是揭示結構及防火工程學對嚴重火災有防患於未然的作用,但得悉外界對此感到不安,本系已立即停用有關圖片,並在社交媒體公開致歉。同時,我們亦已於今天下午與本系學生會代表會面,解釋情況。

本系日後會加強宣傳刊物的審批程序,避免同類事件發生。謹此再次鄭重向所有受影響的同學及人士致歉。

Dear Students, Alumni and Colleagues,

With the intent of illustrating the importance of structural and fire engineering in preventing serious fires, our Department used a photo of a burning building on a poster for promoting our degree programmes.  The poster has drawn extensive attention and commentary.

In view of this, we have addressed the public’s concern and have stopped using the relevant photo immediately.  We have already posted our statement with a sincere apology on social media.  We have also met with the representatives of our Departmental Student Society this afternoon to explain the situation.

The Department will take a stringent approach to reviewing our promotional materials in future.  We are deeply sorry and hope fellow students and the public will accept our apology for the disturbance caused.
