Their remarkable achievements and valuable contributions have earned them well-deserved honour and respectful recognition. Congratulations to the following awardees!   Outstanding Young Alumni Award in Professional Achievement of PolyU Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Dr. MAI Weijie Vice President, Shenzhen Auto Electric Power Plant Co., Ltd. Doctor of Philosophy, Hong Kong Polytechnic University (2017) Dr. MAI Weijie received his Bachelor of Engineering Degree (with First Class Honors) from The University of New South Wales in Australia and Doctor of Philosophy Degree from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Awardee of Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme), both in electrical engineering, in 2012 and 2017, respectively. He was also recognized as the Overseas High-Caliber Personnel (Shenzhen Peacock Plan) in 2020. Dr. MAI currently serves as the Vice-President at Shenzhen Auto Electric Power Plant Co., Ltd., a listed and state-recognized high-tech enterprise that established in 1993 and focuses on designing, developing, manufacturing and operation of high-power industrial charging equipment. In his role, he assumes responsibility for the daily operational management of the Department of New Energy, overseeing various divisions such as R&D, Business, Sales, Investment, Construction, After-Sales, and Charging Station Operation. His primary objective is to ensure smooth and efficient operations across all divisions while driving the company's strategic initiatives in the field of new energy. Deeply involved in the new energy industry, Dr. MAI and his team have had a profound impact on the profession and industry, by contributing to the development of the world's fastest groundbreaking technology (Mega-Watt Adaptive Charging Power Pool) and the establishment of EV Ultra-Fast Public Charging Network with an impressive capacity of 235MW across the whole China, which exemplifies Dr. MAI’s commitment to building safer, greener, and more efficient charging solutions while significantly minimizes the utilization of valuable public resources (e.g. land and power utilities), marking a notable step towards sustainable EV charging infrastructure.   Outstanding Alumni Award in Professional Achievement of PolyU Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Ir YAU Siu Lun, Sheldon Head of Wireless and Core Network Engineering, Hong Kong Telecom Limited MSc in Electronic Engineering, Hong Kong Polytechnic University (1996) Ir YAU Siu Lun, Sheldon has been at the forefront of mobile technology advancements in Hong Kong for over three decades. Starting in the early 1990s, he drove the development of new network features like IUO and pioneered innovations like the first subway coverage and microcell deployment. This allowed him to enhance GSM coverage and capacity in the Hong Kong market. As mobile networks evolved from traditional voice to data services in the late 1990s, he designed multi-band antenna technologies to handle the new requirements, including dual frequencies like 900MHz and 1800MHz. In the 2000s, he deployed one of Hong Kong's first 3G mobile networks, navigating the transition from TDMA to CDMA technology. His Master's degree from PolyU helped him excel in this era. During the 4G era in the 2010s, he resolved the challenges of increasing frequency bands, carrier aggregation demands, and applied various fixed technologies like GPON and CWDM to mobile network operations.  After that, he led the project to consolidate the PCCW and CSL networks, and enabled HKT to deploy Hong Kong's first 5G network in 2020. Now, he is spearheading the development of 5G-Advanced, Artificial Intelligence and Low Altitude Airspace Economy related technologies, cementing HKT's leadership through continuous innovation. His wish is to continue his contribution to the progress of the mobile communication industry in Hong Kong and globally.
