Prof. MENG, Max Qing Hu of the Faculty of Engineering at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has been elected Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) for his notable achievements in Engineering. This year, a total of 52 new international fellows were inducted, and Professor MENG was one of the only two fellows from Hong Kong.
Professor MENG is an international leader in robotics, well known for proposing the world’s first practically-implementable stable adaptive control algorithms for multi-joint industrial robot manipulators, creating the world’s first robotic prosthetic eye, developing the most advanced robotic wireless capsule endoscopy with automatic diagnosis for disease in the gastrointestinal tract, and inventing the world’s first occlusion-free dynamic multi-camera navigation system for surgical robots. He has made impressive contributions to the Canadian industrial and military sectors through successful collaborative projects and the training of highly qualified engineers.
Professor MENG is currently the Chairman of the Department of Electronic Engineering. He was also elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in 2008 for his contributions to medical robotics. His research group is among the first in the research and development of active wireless capsule endoscopy and the related image-based automatic diagnosis.
About the Canadian Academy of Engineering
The Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) is the national institution through which Canada's most distinguished and experienced engineers provide strategic advice on matters of critical importance to Canada. The CAE is an independent, self-governing and non-profit organization established in 1987. Members of the CAE are nominated and elected by their peers to honorary fellowships, in view of their distinguished achievements and career-long service to the engineering profession. It comprises a small number of distinguished engineers from all disciplines, who have undertaken to serve the country and the profession in matters of broad concern.
