Early Research Success for Undergraduates

Teamwork and individual enterprise at the School have both been recognized with two awards for undergraduate students' work in the 2011 President's Cup.

Siwan Lu, Chemical Engineering and General Business Management, and Weicheng Luo, Leiting Zhang and Yuan Zhong, all from Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, took the Gold Award for their project focusing on the design of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles. All students graduated in 2011.

The Silver Award went to Yaxiong Cai, Year 2, Mechanical Engineering, for a study on full-field deformation measurement of wave propagation inside porous solids using digital image correlation.

The President's Cup is a competitive HKUST event held annually to encourage creativity and recognize students' outstanding achievement in research and innovation.
