Hong Kong - TecHKU, the first ever student-run journal at The University of Hong Kong (HKU), announced on Monday the launch of their official website: http://www.engineering.hku.hk/techku
(OPENPRESS) Supported by Prof. Norman Tien, the Dean of Engineering, and lecturer Masato Kajimoto from the Journalism and Media Studies Center (JMSC), the journal aims at giving updates to HKU students, staff and the community at large on the latest research developments and trends in the field of technology, as well as create awareness of HKU student's involvements in technology-related activities.
The website (http://www.engineering.hku.hk/techku) will serve as a platform for connecting employers and experts with students and provide career information to students particularly in the Faculty of Engineering and will raise general interest in technology and technology-related issues.
"I think it is shocking how many students in local universities, even engineering students, do not know or concern themselves with the real world industry, research and consumer tech trends." Said Editor-in-Chief Donald Lam, a second year Computer Science student at HKU, "We are going to change that."
The project is entirely run by students from the Editors to the Webmasters to the Part-Time Contributors. It is a great experience for students to learn how to manage a small organization and will allow them to get writing experiences and participation in academic, business and tech journalism.
