Key Ideas

  1. The latest trend of IT development, including the cloud, social media and the Big Data, creates tremendous opportunities for engineers to change the lives of people.  Through the social media, engineering becomes more outreaching.
  2. No matter which subjects students are studying, passion and fun can help to override the hardship of the study.
  3. The SEEM programme can address the social needs of today and is applicable to the real world.
