Qiancheng (Sum) Wang

MPhil in Architecture and Urban Studies

St. Edmund's College, University of Cambridge


Qiancheng is an MPhil candidate in architecture and urban studies at the University of Cambridge and a member of Horizon Program, Tsinghua University. In 2018, Qiancheng graduated from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University with First Class Honours majoring in Building Engineering and Management and minoring in Applied Mathematics. His research focuses on building performance simulation and energy conservation in the built environment.  He worked as a research assistant/helper in HKPU and NUS, where he won the Best Paper Award in the ICCREM 2018 and the Most Integrative Waste-Energy System for Building Award in WSBE 2017. He also serviced as an assistant project manager at Shaangu Power (SSE: 601369) in 2015 and as an assistant engineer in Henderson Group (HKEX: 0012) in 2016. Qiancheng is as a reviewer for Energies and Electronics.
