The University of Macao (UM) kicked off celebrations for its 40th anniversary on Sunday (Jan. 17), with government officials, education professionals and university staff, students and alumni invited to the event.

Ranked among the top in Asia, the university now places equal emphasis on teaching and research, with a number of national key laboratories and strong research capabilities in areas such as chip, traditional Chinese medicine, and Internet of Things (IoT) for smart cities.

In recent years, UM has made breakthroughs in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, such as unmanned vessels, drones, and autonomous buses.

UM Rector Song Yonghua said at the ceremony that the university would continue fulfilling its social responsibility and aligning with the special administrative regional government's policies and directions in higher education and technological innovation, through quality education, technology transfer, and service to the society, to promote the diversification and sustainable development of Macao's industries.

UM also held an Open Day as part of the celebrations, aiming to allow the public to experience UM's development in teaching and research as well as its campus life through exhibitions and activities.

This year, the university will hold a series of celebratory activities with different themes, including academic research, cultural exchanges, and alumni development.
