Two-Week Workshop in Hong Kong

Urban Technology Week is a collaboration of MITdesignX and the MIT Hong Kong Innovation Node.

We are bringing together 10 students from MIT and 45 students from six Hong Kong universities to learn problem framing and solution building strategies from the MITdesignX methodology.

Our two-week workshop will focus on 3 problems statements presented by the workshop sponsor – MTR – the Hong Kong mass transit authority.

Students will be formed into multidisciplinary teams to identify problems and opportunities dealing with transportation logistics, TOD property dynamics and capital projects.

They will then create solutions, either physical or digital, and develop a plan for their deployment.

Projects will be showcased in a competition on Aug 26.
