    CGCC students exchange programmes

    On 18 May, 25 OUHK full-time nursing and business administration students attended the launch ceremony for the University Students Exchange Programme 2010, sponsored by the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce (CGCC).

    Top award for dust control tool

    An innovative dust control tool designed by three School of Science and Technology students has earned them the championship in the university section of a local public competition. Dick Liu, Lee Chun-keung and Joseph Law tested their tool in a construction site in Lai Chi Kok and found that it had led to over 70% reduction in dust intake by workers. The trio, students of the part-time face-to-face Master of Science in Safety, Occupational Health and Environmental Management programme, received their $10,000 cash prize in March. The Dust Control Measures and/or Tools Design Competition was organized by the Pneumoconiosis Compensation Fund Board.
