SENG’s Alumni Summer Mixer brought together engineering graduates from across the years to celebrate HKUST’s th anniversary. The June event took place at Hong Kong Science Park, with support from two of the HKUST-led InnoHK research centers based at the park: the AI Chip Center for Emerging Smart Systems (ACCESS); and Hong Kong Center for Construction Robotics (HKCRC). InnoHK is a major Hong Kong government initiative to transform the city into a hub for global research and development collaborations. At the mixer, participants had the opportunity to go on exclusive tours of the two centers, rekindle bonds with old friends, faculty members, and sta , and forge new ties with fellow alumni and current students. More than members of the SENG community joined the get-together, which was co-organized by the School and Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation.
