At the time of on-site registration, you will be assigned to an engineering student ambassador who will accompany you in group throughout those four days. S/he will assist you through the hostel check-in and answer any questions you may have about studying at CUHK.
Preparation and arrival
Our classrooms and residential colleges are air-conditioned, and the canteens are within walking distance, we encourage you to bring light and suitable clothing e.g. sportswear and sports shoes. Vests, shorts, skirts and flip-flops should be avoided. Be sure to bring an umbrella as well.
Please bring along with you some basic stationery e.g. notebook, pens and correction tape if you love to use your own for drawing and calculation.
During the camp, we will set out on a stroll to discover the greenest part of campus guided by the student ambassador of Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change (MoCC), the first and foremost Climate Change Museum in Hong Kong! We will get you involved in a fun and hands-on project competition to design a blood pressure sensor, and go over the project rules to ensure you gain basic engineering knowledge. Besides, we will take you to CUHK T Stone Robotics Institute, the newest research hub of the university showing the state-of-the-art automation and robotics technologies. We will also take you through some more featured Engineering labs e.g. Virtual Reality, Visualization and Imaging Research Centre, and project demonstrations by our researchers and senior students. Towards the end of the camp, you will have dialogues with CUHK engineering professors and have a special guided tour to the Hong Kong Science Park (HKSP) and Prince of Wales Hospital (PWH) where advanced green technologies and innovative biomedical solutions will be showcased.
Living on campus
Accommodation: You have three nights of accommodation at Morningside College in twin-room with shared bathroom facilities. Room assignments are made by the Faculty of Engineering and we do not accommodate any individual request for roommate pairing in order to experience the true hall life.
Meals: Free breakfast, lunch and dinner will be arranged for you during the camping period at different university student canteens.
