The Department would like to express heartfelt congratulations to our alumnus, Ir Dr Kenneth Ng Kam-wing on receiving The Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s Ninth "Outstanding Alumni Award". The award presentation ceremony was held on 18 April 2013 at the Hotel Icon to pay tribute to the award recipients’ remarkable professional achievements and contributions to their alma mater, as well as the community. Dr Ng was one of the seven recipients of the PolyU Outstanding Alumni Award.
Ir Dr Ng graduated from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (formerly Department of Production and Industrial Engineering) with a Higher Diploma in Production Engineering in 1970.
Ir Dr Ng has made significant contributions to the development of the watch and clock industry of Hong Kong over the past decades. A leader in the industry, his company Silcon Electronics Co. Ltd. is renowned for its technology knowhow, product quality and trend-setting designs. Through the setting up of the Watch Manufacturer Quality Club in 1992, he has been actively promoting ISO9000 certification in the industry and has greatly contributed to the up-lifting of the quality and technology of the local watch industry. During his Presidency of the Hong Kong Watch Manufacturers Association, he was instrumental in steering the establishment of the Watch and Clock Technology Centre in 1997.
Ir Dr Ng has spared no effort in community services by serving those in need, and the underprivileged. He is a fervent supporter of the Lions Club activities. He also cares deeply about his alma mater. He has served on various advisory committees of the PolyU and has played an active role in many fund-raising activities of the University. He was honoured with the "Distinguished Alumni Award" by the Department in 2012.
