SIGHT Camp usually where students start their SIGHT journey, it is a non-credit bearing activity where you're introduced to ideas and trained to prototype solutions.



If you want a taste of Design Thinking with a side of Common Core credits, this is for you! You'll be going through the Design Thinking cycle with a topic updated every semester.


Fall & Spring

Ideas generated from SIGHT Camp have a chance at life as a 3-credit project course. As a letter-grade course, it is one that you get to decide what the exam questions are!


Summer As projects take shape, they are put to the test and deployed with our partner users. Teams will deploy overseas for 2 weeks for testing and feedback gathering.

Who we are

SIGHT stands for Student Innovation for Global Health Technology (中文:視野無界). Our motto: Simple Technology, BIG Difference. Innovation is designed by undergraduate students from different backgrounds working together, who aim for tangible solutions that are appropriate for poor communities. Deployment is driven by undergraduate students sharing the same goal of overcoming the social, cultural and economic barriers. SIGHT is hosted by the Office of the Dean of Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.


  • To inspire and empower UG students to brainstorm and create health technology innovation for sustainable implementation in developing regions around the world

  • To develop tomorrow’s leaders who are visionary, creative, socially responsible and collaborative

SIGHT taught me that in the real world, there won't be a solution manual that tells you the answers to your problems
