PolyU Outstanding Work by Students: Share the pride and be inspired

The Library is proud to soft-launch PolyU Outstanding Work by Students (PolyU OWS) exhibition and portal (http://ows.lib.polyu.edu.hk). Arising from the PolyU Strategic Plan 2019/20 - 2024/25, PolyU OWS exhibition and portal are the Library's ongoing commitment to showcase and build pride in outstanding work by students.

The outstanding work and student stories featured fulfill the PolyU motto "To learn and to apply, for the benefit of mankind." A wide range of exceptional student work in different disciplines, which have attained individual and group achievements, internal or external awards, or work that contribute towards the betterment of society, are captured, archived, and showcased on our ever-growing portal.

From April to July 2019, three feature stories of students from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, School of Design, and Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics, take the center-stage of the exhibition area on the Podium Floor of Library.

A Virtual Reality Competition was orgnized in an attempt to raise the awareness of the Green Deck project with the use of emerging technologies. To enhance the learning experience for the contestants, Mr Alex Lui, Project Director of Green Deck, delivered a seminar to share the design concepts and latest development on Green Deck, while Dr Walter Fung, Teaching Fellow from Department of Computing, organized 3 training sessions for contestants to acquire new skills on 3D simulation and modeling.
