A total of 14 teams of CUHK students, including 11 from the Faculty of Engineering, swept the top awards, receiving the highest share of awards in the competition.

More than 200 students from 13 tertiary institutions submitted a total of 103 projects for the competition, which was organized by the Hong Kong New General Cultural Association. The winning teams will represent Hong Kong at the biennial "Chuang Qing Chun" National Entrepreneurship Competition 2016. The competition will feature two categories, namely "Innovation" and "Entrepreneurship".

The top prize winners were Mr. CHEN Jianwei from Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, Mr. KUO Wai Keung, a graduate of the Department of Information Engineering, and Mr. LAU Pak Lam, a graduate from Department of Finance. They also received first-class awards in the groups 'Mechanics and Control Systems' and 'Newly Established Enterprise" respectively.

The invention of a Nano imprinting System by Mr. CHEN Jianwei provides a new nano manufacturing platform featuring low costs and highly efficient techniques that can be applied in various industrial and research applications.

Mr. KUO Wai Keung and Mr. LAU Pak Lam established R-Guardian Limited in 2015. Their project involves the installation of Bluetooth devices in handbags and wallets. Featuring a tailor-made module for mobile applications, the device can help users to avoid the loss of valuable items.
