The Faculty of Science and Technology (FST) of the University of Macau (UM) presents the 2020/2021 “Teaching Excellent Award” and “Research Excellence Award” to 4 professors today (April 7). After the selection by FST management committee, the “Excellent Teaching Awards” were presented to Prof. Liu Zhi, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Prof. Zhang Yibo, Associate Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science. The “Research Excellence Awards” were presented to Prof. Vong Seak Weng, Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Hao Tianwei, Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The award aims to commend them for their ever-improving teaching standards, and contribute to the quality and innovation of scientific research. They successfully enhance the quality of teaching and researching of UM and FST, and incentivize other professors and students.
Associate Professor Liu Zhi in the Department of Mathematics has taught at UM since 2012. He initiated and taught the mathematical modelling course and led students to participate into the national mathematical modeling competition. They competed with tens of thousands of teams across the country and won the second prize. Prof. Liu encourages collaborative learning among students, and his courses attract many students from other majors besides Mathematics. At the same time, Prof. Liu was invited to teach and share mathematical modeling in local high schools, making an important contribution to the promotion of UM and Mathematics education.
Associate Professor Zhang Yibo Bob in the Department of Computer and Information Science joined UM in 2013. His research covers biometric recognition, pattern recognition, image processing and medical image analysis. Prof. Zhang received high scores in the student feedback questionnaire. Under the guidance of Prof. Zhang, student achieved numerous accolades in their final year projects. For the master students who graduated from his research team also found their ideal careers.
Prof. Vong Seak Weng in the Department of Mathematics joined UM as a teaching assistant in 1996. He is currently a full professor and focused on energy-efficient water treatment and mining for the circular economy, as well as re-designing environmental infrastructures for water and urban sustainability. He has developed a granular sludge-based high-rate saline wastewater treatment process that can achieve 6-fold higher treatment efficiency than conventional treatment technologies. His current research is devoted to shifting the paradigm of wastewater treatment from passive to favorable treatment through high-value material/product recovery. Prof. Vong has 90 papers published on Web of Science, and 5 of them are highly cited papers. Among them, 17 papers were published in the top 3% journals, and 6 articles were published in the top 5.8% and 7.6% journals. These works are high quality in the field of Mathematics. His research has increased more international reputation and influence for the Department and the University.
Assistant Professor Hao Tianwei in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering joined UM in 2017. He focused on energy-efficient water treatment and mining for the circular economy, as well as on re-designing environmental infrastructures for water and urban sustainability. He has developed a granular sludge-based high-rate saline wastewater treatment process that can achieve 6-fold higher treatment efficiency than conventional treatment technologies. Moreover, his current research is devoted to shifting the paradigm of wastewater treatment from passive to favorable treatment through high-value material/product recovery. Prof. Hao has 28 SCI journal publications, of which 16 were successfully published in the top 1% of journals, and 23 of them belonged to Category A (Q1).
FST presents the “Excellent Teaching Award” and “Research Excellence Award” every academic year to commend academic staff for their outstanding achievements in teaching and research. It showed that the Faculty attaches great importance to the quality of teaching and scientific research, as well as its commitment to cultivating more scientific research talents.
澳門大學科技學院今 (4月7日) 頒發2020/2021學年年度「優秀教學獎」及「研究卓越獎」予四位教授。經過學院相關管理委員會的遴選，「優秀教學獎」由數學系副教授劉志及電腦及資訊科學系副教授張一博奪得，而「研究卓越獎」則由數學系教授黃錫榮及土木及環境工程系助理教授郝天偉獲得。獎項旨在表揚他們言傳身教、力臻完美的教學以及在科研上精益求精、砥礪創新的精神，為澳大及科技學院提升教學科研水平，同時為師生們樹立良好榜樣。
數學系教授黃錫榮自1996年在澳大擔任教學助理，現已是正教授的他研究分數階微分方程的數值方法，這種數值方法描述了許多物理問題中的非局部現象。黃教授研究了幾種加權方法，可用於導出具有高階精度的數值方案及非均勻網格上以解決初始奇點問題。此外，他還為多線性系統開發了一些張量分裂方法，為該領域提供了新的框架。黃教授在Web of Science中發表約90篇，其中5篇屬高引用率文章。當中17篇在排名前3%的期刊上發表、6篇在排名前5.8%及7.6%的期刊上發表，在數學領域屬高質及高產量。他的研究為澳大及科技學院帶來更深的影響力及國際聲譽。
土木及環境工程系助理教授郝天偉在2017年加入澳大，他致力於循環經濟的節能水處理和採礦，以及為水和城市可持續發展而重新設計環境基礎設施。他開發了一種基於顆粒污泥的高速率鹽水廢水處理技術，該技術可以實現比傳統處理技術高6倍的處理效率。 此外，他目前的研究致力於通過高價值的物料/產品回收將廢水處理的範式從被動處理轉變為有利處理。郝教授有近28 篇SCI期刊出版物，其中16篇成功在排名前1%的期刊中發表， 而當中的23篇屬於A類 (Q1)。
