Labs & Facilities

SCM possesses a diversity of venues for students to work and learn in a professional and safe environment, and a multiplicity of equipment for students to use in order to realize their creative projects.




The Production Equipment Centre in SCM is a major equipment library, in charge of borrowing production equipment for class, assignments and projects for both students and faculty. The Centre maintains an on-line booking system to help the student and staff make their equipment bookings. The Centre also provides technical support to all the AV equipment in the School.


Safety & Health

Both the University and the School are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all staff and students and maintaining at all times an effective safety programme. At the University level, a Safety and Administration Unit has been formed under the Facilities Management Office (FMO) to look after issues relating to health, safety and environmental protection. A Safety Committee was established to advise the President on the formulation of safety policies for the University and to oversee the implementation of such policies. At the School level, three colleagues have been designated as Departmental Safety Officers and Departmental Environmental Officers to provide assistance to SCM staff and students in the respective areas. Guidelines have been formulated to facilitate the safe use of lab equipment and facilities by staff and students. This Webpage provides links to useful information relating to health, safety and environment. Staff and students, especially newcomers, are strongly encouraged to spend some time reading through the materials and to familiarise themselves with the policies and guidelines stipulated by the University or the School
