With the aim to strengthen international academic exchange and the opportunities to cooperate with internationally renowned universities, and to broaden our students’ opportunities to study and enjoy exchange opportunities overseas, our Institute invited Professor Vijay K. Dhir, Dean of the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science of the University of California Los Angeles, to visit MPI again in October 2015. Prof. Dhir presented a seminar to our computing students. The seminar is entitled, ‘Mechanical Engineering Effect of Gravity on Boiling Heat Transfer.’


Professor Dhir appreciated that MPI is the first higher education institution in Macao to have undergone a successful institutional review conducted by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, a UK quality assurance agency of international standing. The quality of MPI’s teaching and management is internationally recognised.

Prof. Dhir briefed our students of the programme about the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, shared their vision, and interacted with the students. The students were greatly interested in UCLA and the relevant programmes and posed questions enthusiastically. Over the past several years, a number of our graduates pursed their further study at UCLA as well. In order to enhance the professional abilities of engineers and computer scientists in Macao, a Master of Science degree programme in Engineering is now offered by University of California, Los Angeles, in collaboration with Macao Polytechnic Institute.

Vijay K. Dhir, distinguished professor in mechanical and aerospace engineering, was named dean of UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science in March 2003. In 2006, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering – among the highest honors awarded to engineers – for his work in boiling heat transfer and nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics and safety. Dhir received the 2004 Max Jakob Memorial Award of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). He is a fellow of the American Nuclear Society and a fellow and honorary member of ASME.

The Computing Programme has successfully achieved higher education academic accreditation granted by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in 2011. Macao Polytechnic Institute’s mission is grounded in the interdependent relationship between teaching and research. Our research and development efforts are primarily focused on: wireless technology, network security, artificial intelligence, multimedia and gaming technology.
