Six teams of students of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) swept top awards in the 13th Challenge Cup held at Soochow University recently, and won the Hong Kong and Macau Cup again this year. The University was the only institution in Hong Kong to receive this highest honour in the region for 6 consecutive times since 1997. It was also the first time a participating university from Hong Kong and Macau region received three first prize awards in one competition.
At a celebration held today (14 November), Prof. Fanny Cheung, Pro-vice-Chancellor of CUHK congratulated the students. Professor Cheung said, ‘CUHK always strives to explore students’ creativity and promotes students’ interests in research development. The Challenge Cup is considered the premier national competition of extra-curricular technological projects of university students. It pools the best young innovative brains from all corners of China. I am pleased with students’ outstanding results. I hope that our students will continue to use their creativity and intelligence to develop research projects that benefit humankind.’
