Macau granted jurisdiction over UM new campus on Hengqin Island 澳門將管轄橫琴島澳門大學新校區 (澳门将管辖横琴岛澳门大学新校区)

Macau SAR was authorised to have jurisdiction over the new campus of the University of Macau (UM) on Hengqin Island. This means Macau will exercise jurisdiction over the new campus zone according to the laws of the Macau SAR. The new campus will offer an appropriate academic environment and advanced teaching and research facilities, thereby developing UM into a world-class university.

The UM University Council and University Assembly had been in dialogue with the Government, about the feasibility of setting up a campus on Hengqin Island two years ago. The new campus is expected to complete within three years. The plot of land would be rented to Macau until 19th December, 2049.

The whole campus will cover an area of 1.0926 square km, about 20 times larger than the current campus. A tunnel will be built under the channel to enable 24-hour commuting between the Hengqin campus and the current campus in Macau. People entering or leaving the campus will not be subjected to border control.

Once the new campus is done, the current campus will be serve for educational, academic, cultural, recreational and sports activities that are relevant to the Macau community.

澳門政府將管轄設於珠海市橫琴島其中一部份 - 澳門大學新校區。 新校園將提供適當的學術環境和教研硬件, 全力打造成國際化的一流大學。

新校區與澳門隔水相望, 位於橫琴口岸以南。 面積比現有校園大20倍左右, 約佔地1平方公里, 可容納最少一萬名學生。 澳門以租賃方式取得土地使用權, 期限至2049年12月19日。 日後可以續期。

澳門大學校宣佈, 新校區會用三年時間建成, 屆時有一條24小時全天候運作隧道連接澳門與橫琴校園。 師生、職員、澳門居民及訪客進出校園時毋須辦理邊檢手續。 新校區將分階段有序遷入, 原校址將繼續用作從事與澳門社區有密切聯繫的教學、科研等活動。

University of Macau Awarded Macau’s First U.S. Patent in Hi-technology Microelectronics 澳門大學微電子研究獲美國專利 (澳门大学微电子研究获美国专利)

The University of Macau (UM) has earned Macau’s first U.S. patent in hi-technology microelectronics. A UM research team composed of Prof. Rui Martins, UM Vice Rector (Research), Prof. U Seng Pan and Dr. Mak Pui In from the Faculty of Science and Technology, has achieved significant results in very-large-scale integrated circuit chips design, with the research in “Two-Step Channel Selection for Wireless Receiver Front-Ends”. This achievement has put UM at the forefront of the worldwide research in hi-technology microelectronics.

The new technology passed the rigorous review process of the U.S. Patent and Trade Mark Office in May 2009, and was granted the very first U.S. patent in this area in UM and Macau. It has also received the IEEE CASS 2009 Chapter of the Year Award.

澳門大學一項用於多制式接收器的雙階段頻道選取技術高科技微電子研究項目, 成功獲得美國專利。 項目由澳大副校長(研究)馬許願教授, 科技學院余成斌副教授和麥沛然博士等組成的研究團隊長期致力開發。

負責研究, 近年以麥沛然博士為第一主力研發的“用於多制式接收器的雙階段頻道選取技術”更取得了重大突破, 研究成果將可應用在無線電通訊上, 至於配合其研究發展出來的高科技無線電產品, 具有多制式及低成本等特點。

麥沛然, 花了3年多, 在今年五月成功通過美國專利局的嚴格審核才獲取專利, 為澳門及澳大取得了該領域的首個美國專利權, 這標誌著澳大高科技微電子研究的水平已站在國際最前沿。 現時會繼續完善技術, 希望盡快在市場上應用。
