The Hong Kong Polytechnic was formally established on 1 August 1972. With approval from the University and Polytechnic Grants Committee for self-accreditation of degree programmes, the Institution assumed full university status on 25 November 1994, changing its name to “The Hong Kong Polytechnic University”. Its vision is to be a leading university that excels in professional education, applied research and partnership for the betterment of Hong Kong, the nation and the world.
The State Key Laboratory of Ultra-precision Machining Technology (SKLUPMT) in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is the partner laboratory with the State Key Laboratory of Precision Measurement Technology and Instruments in Tianjin University and Tsinghua University. The status of State Key Laboratory was conferred by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of the People’s Republic of China in 2009. The laboratory, formerly the Advanced Optics Manufacturing Centre incorporated with the Ultra-precision Machining Centre (UMC), was established in 1996. The objective of the laboratory is to undertake research into ultra-precision machining technologies and nano-surface metrology so as to enhance the capability of Hong Kong and Mainland China in design, fabrication and measurement of advanced optics and critical precision components. The SKL has been active in researching single-point diamond turning, ultra-precision freeform machining, and nano-surface metrology. The research results have been published in a number of highly reputable refereed journals and presented at international conferences.
