WELCOME

Professor Xu, Dongyan

Welcome to the website of the Energy and Environmental Engineering (EEEN) Programme of the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).

Energy and environment are among the most important subjects facing the 21st century. The engineers nowadays need to find holistic and effective solutions to protect our fragile planet and meet the needs of a growing human population. The EEEN Programme at CUHK provides a comprehensive platform for students to learn about the complexities and inter-linkages of these two subjects, and to acquire the technological knowhows for possible tradeoffs and solutions. The Programme leverages on the broad academic coverage of CUHK as a comprehensive university, and the support of a host of CUHK entities, including the Institute of Environment, Energy and Sustainability (IEES), the Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change, and the Institute of Future Cities. The Programme is designed for engineering-minded students with aspiration to help make the world greener and sustainable for future generations.

CUHK Develops Ultra-Thin Self-Powered Wireless Sensing E-Sticker, Achieving Novel Smart IoT Technology with Power, Sensing, Wireless Transmission Functions All-in-one Unit

A research team led by Professor Yunlong Zi has recently developed a self-powered wireless sensing e-sticker (SWISE). SWISE can convert the energy of the finger touch on the e-sticker into electromagnetic wave signals for wireless transmission without batteries or wires. Taking advantage of flexible, ultra-thin, and long effective transmission distance, SWISE can further the development of smart sensing and remote-control technologies.
