The CSE believes that applied research can easily be made technologically and commercially viable through advanced technology transfer protocols. In that regard, the CSE promotes and supports knowledge transfer activities across all disciplines. In concert with the University’s Knowledge Transfer Office, the CSE seeks to bring significant discoveries to a wider audience to enhance social and economic well-being. In addition, through contract research and consultancy, the CSE also performs R&D activities funded by both industry and government organizations.
The CSE also offers a variety of professional services catering to the specific needs of the local community. This is made possible by a wealth of technological resources in areas such as electronic engineering, materials science, wireless communications, optoelectronics, civil engineering, computer science, and mechanical engineering. Many of these facilities are among the most advanced in both Hong Kong and Asia-Pacific.
