    The celebration day will embark on the Engineering Achievement Exhibition where you can find out some of our featured technology breakthroughs and innovations at the Podium, 5/F, Ho Sin Hang Engineering Building (SHB).  Our alumni and students will lead a lab tour that allows you to go more in depth about each project demonstration by specific departments.  Tour lasts about 1 hour and ends half hour before the Alumni Fundraising Walkathon begins. 

    The Walkathon is a fundraising initiative of the Engineering Faculty Alumni Association (ERGAA) to set up scholarships for students. Please do come and mobilize your friends and relatives to discover more in this scenic campus.   (Route: Ho Sin Hang Engineering Building > New Asia College> Woo Sing College > C. W. Chu College > S.H. Ho College)

    The finale of our 25th anniversary is the Faculty Alumni Association Celebration Banquet.      It will be a great reunion for each and every one of you, not just reconnection with old friends, but also connection to new faces.  And the lucky draw grand prize is a i-watch.  Seats are limited, please act fast to secure your own table.
