The IMechE 8th Greater China Design Competition, which is organized by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Hong Kong Branch and co-organized by Department of Electromechanical Engineering (EME) of FST, was held from 23 to 24 March 2019 at the Student Activity Centre (E31) of the University of Macau. The Greater China Design competition is an university design competition for the universities from Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Macau including the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Guangzhou College of South China University of Technology, the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Tsing Yi), the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, the South China University of Technology, the University of Hong Kong, and the University of Macau.

The competition aims at providing a platform for engineering students to demonstrate their engineering knowledge, while in parallel strengthen their presentation skills by designing an innovative prototype on the topics ranging from environmental to social issues. This year, the topic is ‘Energy Relay’. Participants are asked to design and build four self-propelled devices which can collectively complete a relay race in the shortest period of time. By encouraging students to participate in such competition, students can broaden their horizons, gain more knowledge and learn more about different aspects, which will also benefit students' future career and development.

由英國機械工程師學會香港分部及澳門大學科技學院機電工程系合辦的英國機械工程師學會第八屆大中華地區設計比賽於2019年3月23至24日在澳門大學學生活動中心(E31)舉行。大中華地區設計比賽是廣州、香港及澳門大專院校的設計比賽,包括香港中文大學、華南理工大學廣州學院、香港專上教育學院、香港理工大學、香港科技大學、華南理工大學、香港大學及澳門大學。

是次比賽旨在為工程系學生提供一個展示其工程知識的平台,學生需設計一個創新原型,以解決有關環境問題甚至社會問題,同時通過比賽增強他們的演講技巧。今年的主題為「能量繼電器」,參賽者需要設計及製造四個自行推進裝置,並用最短的時間來完成接力賽。藉著鼓勵學生參加此類賽事,讓學生可以擴闊眼界,學到更多的知識和了解更多不同的事物,對學生未來的事業和發展有莫大好處。
