The second HKUST-TUD Joint Workshop was held on campus on 17 March 2017, which is a continuation of the first joint research workshop at the Delft University of Technology (TUD) on 12-13 May 2016, to explore future research strategies and potential collaborations.  A group of 6 TUD faculty members led by Prof. Rinze Benedictus, Interim Dean of Faculty of Aerospace Engineering attended the workshop. HKUST teams included Prof. Wei Shyy, Prof. T.C. Pong, Prof. Christopher Chao, Prof. Huihe Qiu, Prof. Xin Zhang, Prof. Kai Tang, Prof. Xun Huang, Prof. Jinglei Yang, Prof. Larry Li, Prof. Rhea Liem, Dr. Sunny Chan and a number of research students.
The workshop covered four major topics on MAV, aerodynamics and aeroacoustics, smart manufacturing, and online education.  At the event, MAE representatives engaged in vigorous discussion on the topics with the TUD counterparts and came up with some new ideas and action plans. MAE will continue to engage TUD in facilitating academic exchange and fostering research-oriented collaboration between the two institutions in the long run.
