The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) is committed to meeting societal needs through the provision of excellent education and conducting impactful research. The University has been working closely with industry over the years to strengthen collaboration between innovative research teams and key industry players for the benefit of society.

Chairman and Founder of Jetta Company Limited Ir Dr WONG Tit-shing is a renowned leader in the toy industry and a PolyU Outstanding Alumnus. He has always been a strong supporter of PolyU and recently provided a generous donation to establish the Wong Tit Shing Endowed Young Scholar position in Smart Robotics. Ir Dr ZHENG Pai, Assistant Professor of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, has been appointed as the Endowed Young Scholar.

In an appreciation lunch hosted by PolyU’s President Prof. Jin-Guang TENG yesterday (22 June), Prof. Teng expressed his sincere gratitude on behalf of PolyU for Dr Wong’s unwavering support. “PolyU will fully leverage its academic strengths to bring about significant new research breakthroughs in Smart Robotics research,” Prof. Teng added.

As a graduate of the Hong Kong Technical College (HKTC), a predecessor of PolyU, Dr Wong also donated the precious school logo pins of HKTC to PolyU during the luncheon. President Teng expressed his appreciation for the donation, and will arrange for this memorable collection to be exhibited in the University History Museum.

With remarkable achievements in Smart Robotics, Dr Zheng is currently the Lab-in-Charge of the Digitalized Service Laboratory and Leader of the PolyU Research Group “AI for Industrial Digital Servitization”. He is very grateful for Dr Wong’s trust and support. He and his team are inspired to contribute to achieving symbiotic and proactive human-robot collaboration in order to advance smart manufacturing.

The PolyU Endowed Young Scholars Scheme aims to partner with our donors to identify young scholars with great potential in order to ensure their innovative research can be realised. The annual funding provided by the Scheme not only supports the research and scholarly activities of the appointee, but also serves as seed funding for the pursuit of preliminary stage research projects, helping to elevate the impact of research on society.

The University looks forward to joining hands with like-minded philanthropists to strengthen links between academia and industry, fostering greater collaboration and the exchange of knowledge to generate positive societal impact. Please browse the Scheme website for more information.
