On 13 March, a group of twenty students and two professors from the Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) came to visit UIC’s new campus. The students are members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) OUHK Student Branch. This was Dr Kevin King Fai Hung’s third time to visit UIC and his first time to visit the new campus.


The group’s tour included the Food Science and Technology (FST) labs in T8, where they got to see the Food Processing Lab, Research Lab, Microbiology Lab, Molecular Biology Lab and Animal Cell Culture Room.
