The CityU Engineering Doctorate (EngD) Society in the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management (SEEM) was organized AGM seminar entitled “Education and Innovation” on 10th Jun 2017. It is a great honor to have four cohorts as speaker of the seminar. The aim of the seminar is to dissemination more information about the innovation and education opportunities and to discover the creative initiatives from alumni of CityU EngD. Before the seminar, we took a group photo for memory.

Dr. Samuel Fung and Dr. Albert Tam)
In the beginning, Dr. Joseph Leung gave welcome speech. He briefed the Design program separated into Product, Feature and Architecture. They would focus on Engineering plus IT into design, especially on multi-media design. That why Joseph changed his job nature from IT into Academic. He also said the coming focus would be on AR and VR simulation training and teaching.
Dr. Walter Fung (Teaching Fellow, Dept. of Computing, PolyU) was the first speaker and his topic was “The use of game and simulation for Information Systems Audit & Control teaching and training”. Firstly, he explained his background and his idea on education.
Then Walter pointed out several off-the-shelf games and simulations for teaching. He tried different games by Harvard, MIT, Flexsim, etc. In the past, ISAC related to security used to be assessed by traditional methods like exam, case study, audit and evaluation of companies by report, etc. So he employed such game into Information System Audit & Control (ISAC) for student project as motivation.
The game links showed into the following diagram.
After that Walter showed us most of his student teams selected for new design approach on game and animation.
The exhibition was held on 14 Apr 2016 and very successful results obtained. Finally, he concluded that simulation and game design as well as animation allowed student to be more innovative and creative. The exhibition could connect students with industry. Finally, selected student team participated in an international game competition. Walter said they would evaluate the validity of such assessment approach through teaching, research and publications.
I was the second speaker and my topic named “Introduction to the Extenics”. It was the first time to present my results after attended the formal training by International Academy of Extenics in last few months.
Firstly, I introduced the father of the Extenics - Prof. Cai Wen and his theory background. I reviewed the Extenics activities in Hong Kong since 2016 and the future planning of different promotion activities on the Extenics in 2017. Moreover, I wrote five articles in am730 and the column named “可拓品質量”.
Then I briefed the Basic-element Theory, Extension Set Theory and Extension Logic. Basic-element (基元) included three key elements (三要素) and they were Object, Characteristic and Value. Moreover, Basic-element constituted by Matter-element (物元) , Affair-element (事元) and Relation-element (關係元). Extensible Analysis, Conjugate Analysis and Extension Transformation were also discussed. I used some examples which were my exercises during Level 1, 2 & 3 courses in Guangzhou last few months.
Finally, I introduced the contact of Extenics Innovation Method Level 1, 2 & 3 courses content and concluded that the future Innovation Management System would be integrated into Quality Management System. I proposed to integrated ISO 9001 Quality Management System and CEN/TS 16555 Innovation Management System series and got the following Quality and Innovation Management System (QInnoMS) model. Lastly, TRIZ (RUSSIA), Innovation Culture (USA) and Extenics (China) would be the key three approaches on innovation management. I would like to integrate them into one approach in future.
The third speakers were Mr. Calvin Sung (Co-founder & CEO) and Mr. Kingson Wan (Co-founder & CTO) who were Walter’s students and they presented their startup company to us. Their services named “Edutainment” and “Gamification”. Edutainment is to use game in educational use and Gamification is to use game elements in solving daily problems.
Then they showed some accomplishments to us. For green deck project, it was VR technique (Game) plus promotion (Daily Application). Finally, they briefed the advantages of gamification & edutainment such as higher involvement and attraction, as well as, more information and sustainable.
Dr. T.W. Liu (Vice-President, CityU EngD Society) was the last speaker and his presentation topic entitled “IP Strategies Using I Ching Theory”. Firstly, he briefed I Ching from Universality to Static Composition (x3) and then to be indicated “Change”.
Then he analyzed IP Strategy into 8 process and they were Time, Creativity, Ownership, Wealth, Product, Industry, Market and Competition.
And then TW Liu showed us how to use Patent Databases to search international patents.
Finally, he demonstrated the Circular Playing Board Game he developed for IP Strategy. For instance, company like Mobike used strategy 8-3-5 to fright with competitor and other company used strategy 1-4-7 to build barrier to entry. Last example was to overcome barrier to entry using strategy 2-4-8 that was a Blue Ocean strategy to open up a new market space.
After the AGM Seminar, Dr. Herbert Yeung (President, CityU EngD Society) gave a welcome speech and briefed our society activities in 2016/17. Then Dr. Rocky Lam presented the financial report.
