  • Research support. To play a pivotal role as a “technical library” in supporting the university’s engagement in academic research, and providing all-round support in teaching and technological development.
  • Lab support and service learning support. To be the “teaching laboratory” of academic programmes by delivering active, enriching, and multi-disciplinary learning activities.
  • Project support. To work hand-in-hand with academia and industries to push the frontiers of knowledge by conducting projects that have a direct impact, and by making breakthroughs which solve problems, create hope and benefit mankind.

Nature & Role

We are a “Technical Library” for PolyU community.
We support Research, Lab & Service Learning and Project.

Learn More

Being one of PolyU’s Administrative and Supporting Office, IC serves to provide engineering education as well as technical & research support to researchers and students to realize their research, projects and incubation initiatives. IC is a “Technical Library” equipped with a complete collection of engineering facilities and equipment together with a pool of expertise in different engineering disciplines.

Research Support

  • We worked closely with PolyU’s CNERC-Rail and CNERC-Steel on many new research projects and initiatives in railway and robotic welding.
  • We have established Hong Kong's first Aviation Services Research Centre (ASRC) in collaboration with giant aerospace company, Boeing. It works intimately with Boeing and local MROs in implementations of advanced MRO technologies and methodologies.

Lab Support and Service Learning Support

  • We provide “IC hands-on learning experience” for students to enhance their engineering knowledge and technical capabilities to further pursue their studies. We also support multi-disciplinary departments on laboratory works, service learning activities, Freshman Seminar, student competition projects and various STEM-related projects.
  • For example, we supported over 40 FENG students and achieved 1st runner-up in 2017 RoboCon Hong Kong University group competition. We also supported over 60 FENG students to participate in China Formula SAE competition during Nov 2017 in Xiangyang, Hubei, and achieved the 2nd place in 13 novices electrical racing team. Examples of Service Learning projects support include campus and IT facilities improvement for schools and charity organizations in Hong Kong and Heyuan, designing STEM learning kits for primary / secondary school students and farming improvement project in Sichuan.
  • In addition to academic teaching and HKIE-accredited hands-on learning activities provided to around 50 UGC-funded academic programme, we also support Hong Kong Community College (HKCC) on Higher Diploma in Aircraft Services Engineering.

Project Support

  • We have supported and realized projects, including Sampling and Packing System (SSPS) for Chang’e-5 Lunar Probe, Camera Pointing System (CPS) for Chang'e-3 Lunar Probe and Soil Preparation System (SOPSYS) for Phobos-Grunt Mission in collaboration with PolyU ISE, Novel Brain Training Device for Stroke Patient in collaboration with PolyU BME, 3D Printed Surgical Guides in collaboration with local medical schools and hospitals.
  • We also worked with various departments to extend our engineering project support to the industry and the community. Some of the examples include Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) Simulation System in collaboration with Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Air Traffic Control Console Improvement Study in collaboration with HKSAR Civil Aviation Department (CAD), Acid Deposition Monitoring Network in collaboration with HKSAR Environmental Protection Department (EPD), Mobile Detrainment Ladder for MTR and Novel Multiple-axis Machining of Turbine Blades in collaboration with Hong Kong Aero Engine Services Limited (HAESL).
