Honours of research excellence
CUHK researchers have recently received global and local recognitions for their research excellence.
Recently, CUHK faculty members from a wide array of disciplines have received recognitions for their research and scientific achievements. Ten research projects led by CUHK received a total of about HK$50 million (US$6.4 million) from the 2022-23 Collaborative Research Fund by the Research Grants Council (RGC). Among them, four projects have been awarded a Collaborative Research Project Grant, two a Collaborative Research Equipment Grant and four the newly added Young Collaborative Research Grant. The funded projects span across an extensive range of areas, including 3D printing, AI-assisted cancer detection, biomedical sciences, Chinese’s studies, physics, and surgery, among others.
Besides, three professors from CUHK’s Faculty of Engineering have been elected Fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in the class of 2023. They include Prof. Anthony So from the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management, Prof. Evangeline Young from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and Prof. Li Zhang from the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognised by the technical community as a prestigious honour and an important career achievement. There are currently 41 IEEE Fellows in the Faculty of Engineering at CUHK.
