CUHK Engineering Research Performance Recognized by RAE 2020

The Faculty of Engineering is pleased with the results of Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2020, announced by the University Grants Committee. RAE 2020 recognizes CUHK Faculty of Engineering as being among the best Engineering Faculty in Hong Kong.  Our research outputs, research impact and research environment were assessed by three international panels of experts: Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Panel 4), Computer Science and Information Engineering (Panel 5) and Engineering (Panel 6).  
Panel 6 (Engineering) assessed CUHK’s overall quality profile with 42% 4-star (“world leading”), the highest percentage from this panel. CUHK’s cumulative percentage of 3-star (“internationally excellent”) or 4-star from this panel was 94%, is also the highest from this panel.   
Panel 4 (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) rated 87% of CUHK’s overall quality profile as either 3-star or 4-star. This is also the highest cumulative percentage of 3-star and 4-star from this panel. 
Panel 5 (Computer Science and Information Technology”) rated 93% of CUHK’s overall quality profile to be either 3-star or 4-star. Moreover, two out of the three CUHK’s impact cases assessed by this panel were rated 4-star, the highest percentage of 4-star impact case assessments from this panel.  
The Faculty of Engineering altogether submitted eight impact cases to the three panels, and 50% were rated as 4-star, and the other 50% were 3-star.  This ranks our research impact to be among the best of all the Engineering Faculties in Hong Kong.
