University Fellow recognised with esteemed accolade
Congratulations to Professor Norman W. M. Ko, University Fellow of PolyU, on being honoured with the HKIE Gold Medal 2021 by The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE)! The prestigious award is a fitting recognition of his outstanding achievements and contributions over the decades to advancing the science of fluid dynamics and acoustics, as well as the control of noise pollution in Hong Kong.
