Academic Collaborations

PolyU Design welcomes and has taken part in various kinds of local and international collaborations with both academic and corporate sectors. Academic collaborations range from research projects, to exchange programmes, to workshops, to conferences; while corporate collaborators offer scholarships and work-based learning opportunities, including local and overseas summer internship to our students.


Some examples of collaborations we had with different design schools:

PolyU Design and Royal College of Art (UK) co-organised workshop on Human-Centred AI Design Methods

Workshop on Human-Centred AI Design Methods to Understand “Intelligent Systems Design empowered by Multisensory Experiences with Textiles” was held in collaboration between our MDes Intelligent System Design (ISD) programme and the Royal College of Art, UK (RCA).


PolyU | RCA Artificial Intelligence Design Laboratory (AIDL)

The PolyU and the Royal College of Art (RCA) to establish the PolyU | RCA Artificial Intelligence Design Laboratory (AIDL). The Laboratory will be the world’s first and leading research facility to advance the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the design of products and service. 


Critical Interiors Workshop 2022: Spatialising ‘Interiority’

The workshop was based on the experiment ‘Visualising the sensory journey into mind maps’ happened at TU Delft in 2019. It provided the foundation for this workshop to be developed and extended to discuss the ‘interiors-interiority’ relations.


Leadership Forum on Design Education

An annual forum coorganised by PolyU Design and Hong Kong Design Institute as part of the Business of Design Week (BODW) of Hong Kong Design Centre.


Design project with Chukyo University in Japan

Students from our Social Design, Digital Media and Interactive Media programmes joined together to collaborate with 39 Media Engineering students from Chukyo University, Japan to work on topics of sustainability and local craftsmanship in 2019 summer.


International Media Students’ Joint Exhibition: "KNOT 매듭 結.識"

This is an exhibition co-organised by PolyU's BA(Hons) in Digital Media (Hong Kong), Baekseok Culture University (South Korea),and Shanghai Institute of Technology (Mainland China) happened at the PolyU campus in Hong Kong. Student works relating to the contemporary comic book-making world from three schools embodied and encapsulated their learning experiences from the three distinct programs. Through this exhibition, the organisers hoped to create a platform for fostering conversation among students from different cultural backgrounds. 


There are many more yet to be named here. If you are interested in collaborating with us too, contact us for ideas.
