Department of Mechanical EngineeringRESEARCH & fACILITIES
Research Infrastructure
The Department has a strong research infrastructure and network in Hong Kong and Pearl River Delta.

The services provided by EPACK Lab include prototyping, process development, material characterization, reliability testing and failure analysis, and modeling and simulation. It runs an industrial consortium to support industry-based research and development work in the area of electronic packaging.


Center for Sustainable Energy Technology (HKUST)
The mission of this Center is to promote and enhance collaborative efforts on education,
research, and services in advanced energy technology and management for the betterment of the industry and economic growth in Hong Kong, Pearl River Delta and Southern China.


Mechanical Engineering Laboratory (HKUST IER Building Shenzhen)
The Laboratory is an extension of the research operation of the Department of Mechanical Engineering in Shenzhen.  It is located in the HKUST IER Building in the Shenzhen High-Tech Industrial Park. It is used as a platform to enable Mechanical Engineering faculty members to interact more closely with industrial and research partners in Shenzhen.


The HKUST LED-FPD Technology R&D Center at Foshan was formally established in June 2010 upon approval from the University. The Center, with funding support from the Foshan Government, will strengthen HKUST's research infrastructure and activities in the Pearl River Delta region and provide HKUST with a platform to reach out for collaboration opportunities and funding sources in the Mainland.


The Center for Engineering Materials and Reliability (CEMAR) strives to become a technical platform to serve the Pearl River Delta industries, as well as an education center for innovative and creative engineers, and as a bridge between industries, universities and research institutions.


The Building Energy Research Center (BERC) utilizes the research strengths of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in energy efficient technologies and building environmental research to further develop state-of-the-art technology and products for commercial applications. Our research focuses on building related energy efficient technologies (including ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, etc.), effective usage of energy (energy saving, solar energy, waste heat), and indoor air quality (health and comfort). We aim to create a healthy, comfortable and sustainable living environment. BERC will also collaborate with Mainland institutions and industry, as well as for education and training.
