SDWorks is a unique platform which further develops, produces and commercializes items designed by students from the School of Design at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Tutors often see student projects that have great commercial potential but end when the course is completed. SDWorks was established to turn these projects into reality. Together with the students, SDWorks helps to develop and refine their ideas into real world products.

We manufacture the designs on site at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Industrial Center or license to industrial partners. The profits from SDWorks sales are invested into development and production of new design concepts. A percentage goes to the student as royalties.

SDWorks was founded in early 2007 by the professors Dr Ernesto Spicciolato and Dr Roger Ball
