Book Donation for Students to Strengthen Core Subjects

古人云「工欲善其事,必先利其器」。對於城大莘莘學子來講,求學之「器」,莫過於好書。日前香港城市大學作為全港首間學校,開設核子工程學科。城大機械及生物醫學工程學系客座教授、核子及風險工程學士學位元課程創辦主任錢景常教授,為加強學生相關知識,豐富圖書館館藏,錢教授特別捐出大量有利於學生研習功課的書籍於圖書館,供全校師生使用。這些圖書涉及流體力學與熱流等學科。錢教授所捐書籍,皆為自行購買或個人藏書,希望對同學課業有所幫助。

The Library received a donation of more than 50 titles from Professor Chieng Ching-chang, Visiting Professor of MBE and Founding Leader of the Bachelor of Engineering programme in Nuclear and Risk Engineering on November 26.

CityU is the first university in Hong Kong to run the Nuclear and Risk Engineering program. The Library is honored to have received the book donation from Professor Chieng. As an effort to broaden students' knowledge in the relevant field and to enrich the Library's collection, the donation consists of more than 50 books, revealing the knowledge of Thermal Science and Fluid Mechanics. The donation is from Prof. Chieng’s own purchase and previous collection. Prof. Chieng wishes those books would facilitate the learning and teaching at CityU.

"Reading is key to increasing students' learning outcomes especially in the core subject areas such as physics and math," said Prof. Steve Ching, the University Librarian.

The Library welcomes suggestions from faculty members on collection building.
