After graduating from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 1993, Dr Wong worked in a leading industrial company in Hong Kong and was responsible for projects which transferred high-precision and high-technologies from the Netherlands to Hong Kong, then from Hong Kong to Mainland China. After he obtained Master of Science (Engineering), he worked for another leading industrial company in Hong Kong and was again responsible for technology transfer projects, this time from Germany to Hong Kong.
Besides the industries, Dr Wong continued his studies and completed his PhD programme in the remarkably short span of three years. Moreover, he was the first ever PhD student in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University to obtain a US patent.
In 2004, Dr Wong and his research team were awarded the “Outstanding Professional Services and Innovation Awards 2003 - Successful Patent Award” by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
In 2007, Dr Wong represented HKCC to work as a chairman of the organising committee to organise a first ever Joint Professional Institutions and Joint Universities activity called “21st Century Manufacturing - Lean Manufacture (including Logistics and Supply Chain)”. The co-organisers were Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and HKU Industrial Engineering Association (HKUIEA). This first ever activity was reported in the official journal of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) in March 2007. The participants came from HKCC, HKIE, IEEE, HKUIEA, PolyU, HKUST, CUHK, CityU, and OUHK.
Dr Wong's current research interests include Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Engineering and Management, Peer-to-peer Networking, Precision Engineering, and Micro-electroforming.
