Ting-Chuen PONG (PhD, Virginia Tech, 1984)
Director of the Center for Engineering Education Innovation and Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at HKUST
Dr. Pong received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Virginia
Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1984. In 1991, he joined the
Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST), where he is currently a
Professor in Computer Science and Engineering, and the Director of the Center
for Engineering Education Innovation.
At HKUST, he has served as a Senior Advisor to the Executive Vice-President and Provost
from 2013 to 2018, Associate Vice-President for Academic Affairs from 2002 to 2010,
Associate Dean of Engineering from 1999 to 2002, and
Director of the Sino Software Research Institute from 1995 to
2000. He also served as an Academic Research
Advisor for the University Grants Committee from 2010 to 2012. Before
joining HKUST, he was an Associate Professor in Computer Science at the
University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA.
Dr. Pong's research interests include Multimedia Computing, E-learning,
Computer Vision and Image Processing, Artificial Intelligence, and Pattern
Recognition. Dr. Pong is a recipient of the Pattern Recognition Society Award
in 1990 and the HKUST Excellence in Teaching Innovation Award in 2001.
In 2014, he led the HKUST team in the Wharton-QS Stars Awards Competition and
was selected as Winner of the Natural Sciences Award and Runner-up of the
Hybrid Learning Award.
