The University of Macau’s (UM) Faculty of Science and Technology (FST) held the Dean’s Final Year Project List Presentation Ceremony and Project Exhibition 2017 on 2nd June. The event aimed to recognize outstanding graduates and showcase what the students accomplished after four years of study. More than 100 people attended the event, including industry practitioners, students and their family members.
A number of distinguished projects were exhibited in the event. These projects were developed by students from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Computer and Information Science, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Department of Electromechanical Engineering; and they cover such areas as structural, environmental and hydraulic engineering; computer graphics and visual computing; software engineering; biomedical engineering; power engineering; mechanical engineering; and materials engineering. At the exhibition, some students also presented their design concepts and gave on-site demonstration. Prof. Chun-Lung Philip CHEN, Dean of the FST said that the exhibition not only provided a platform for students to interact with industry practitioners, but it also served as a window for the industry to know more about the students’ talents and skills. Prof. Chen said it can certainly improve the level of education and research at the FST.
