Summer Research Programme

  • Research @ CUHK
  • Research @ University of Warwick
  • Research @ Kansai University

The Department encourages students to conduct summer research under the supervision of faculty members. Scientific research work demands a kind of tenacity and creativity that often isn’t fully engaged in lectures and laboratory classes. While we focus on learning fundamental principles in lectures, conducting scientific research is, on the other hand, a valuable tool to prove or disprove fundamental principles.

Students who are interested to conduct summer research should take a pro-active role to contact our faculty members for details.

Summer research at University of Warwick has been suspended this year (2020).
