PolyU Two-day University Experience Programme 2021

12 Aug 2021

On 3 – 4 August, the Faculty of Engineering (FENG) organised the Two-day University Experience (TUE) Programme online under the theme of “From Physics and ICT to Engineering”, aiming at Secondary 4 to 5 students who are taking Science, ICT, or M1/ M2 subjects.

FENG arranged a series of thematic online lectures and quizzes on seven fields of engineering during these two days. Dr Henry Chan, our Associate Professor and Associate Head, represented FENG to officiate the opening of TUE and welcomed the attendees.

To begin the COMP’s session, Dr Chan introduced some basic computing concepts with an interactive game to arouse students’ interest. Dr Peter Ng, our Teaching Fellow, delivered a mini-lecture on “Game Technologies” directly afterwards. Students were able to grasp the idea of game development and computer vision including Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). To further illustrate the know-how, they were taken on a virtual tour of our VR and Game Lab. Dr Ng also demonstrated a machine learning project “physical toys recognising” and created two online polling questions about maths in game programming and machine learning for students to express their views. It attracted more than 140 participants.

After the closing ceremony, Dr Walter Fung and Dr Richard Lui, our Teaching Fellows, met and chit-chat with the students in the breakout room where they could know more about the study life at COMP and our teaching initiatives. TUE Programme provides a valuable opportunity for secondary students to engage with university academics and experience university learning during the summertime.
