Shortly after the opening of the University of Hong Kong in 1912,  Sir Robert Ho-Tung made a donation of $100,000 to the university for the purpose of providing an engineering machine shop for training of engineering students. The first small workshop, which was built on 1914, was located very close to the main campus building.
