Job openings for Assistant Technical Officer (expired by Monday, 14 February, 2022)


The Aerodynamics and Acoustics Facility (AAF), was formerly named the CLP Power Wind/Wave Tunnel Facility (WWTF). The facility is one of central research facilities at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). The facility was first opened by the Hon. Tung Chee Hwa, Chief Executive of Hong Kong SAR, the Chancellor of HKUST, and the Hon. Michael D. Kadoorie, Chairman of CLP Holdings, on the 9th of June, 2000. Between 2015 and 2019, the facility was redeveloped with a brand new state-of-the-art low-noise wind tunnel, and world-class large acoustic testing laboratories, focused towards to a new era of modern and exciting aerodynamics and acoustics research and development.
