University Fellow recognised by HKIE
Congratulations to Professor Norman W. M. Ko, University Fellow of PolyU, who has just been honoured by The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) with the HKIE Gold Medal 2021 in recognition of his outstanding achievements and contributions to advancing the science of fluid dynamics and acoustics, as well as addressing the noise pollution problem in Hong Kong.
Prof Ko is also a renowned underwater photographer and sculptor. In 1970, he won the Gold and Silver Medals in underwater photography from the Underwater Federation of Hong Kong. He also holds three patents on an underwater camera in the US and the UK. In 2009, PolyU held an exhibition of underwater photographs he had taken over 20 years.
Many of his sculptures are on display around Hong Kong and he presented his first open air exhibition at the 4th PolyU Arts Festival in 2009. In 2011, he donated a sculpture called Soaring to PolyU, while in 2012 he donated a set of sculptures, jointly named Vision, as a gift to mark the University’s 75th Anniversary. In the same year, Prof Ko accepted the invitation to be the University’s Artist-in-Residence.
