I joined the internship programme organised by HKU and the Boeing Company in the US. This exposure greatly widened my eyesight and taught me the latest technology in aircraft manufacturing as well as how to achieve the highest standard.

By participating in Project Mingde, we have a better understanding on the construction process and building techniques, such as mixing cement mortar, plastering, tile-laying and suchlike. These practical skills were essential for engineering students in their future careers. Apart from learning how to build, we were given opportunities to communicate with the contractors and clients. Progress meetings were held to discuss the construction progress and problems encountered during the work. It was an adventurous and eye-opening experience for me!

We formed a team with three fellow schoolmates from the Faculty of Architecture of HKU. This multi-disciplinary collaboration not only allowed us to work with students from other disciplines, but also provided us opportunities to interact with architects, surveyors and urban planners. It was indeed a valuable experience that could hardly find in the university coursework. It equipped us to become an all-rounded civil engineer in the future.

I participated a Designathon organised by a fellow classmate. Participants were required to design a foldable chair and produce a prototype by 3D-printing within 48 hours. This experience taught me the importance of thinking out of the box and use our engineering expertise to improve our daily lives. It was an extraordinary experience for me to study at the University College London for six months.

The competitive study environment at HKU has pushed me to search for my motivation in study and my career goal. I have learnt to be proactive, to seize opportunities for learning and different work experiences. Taking part in hackathons and international conferences served as a valuable learning experience for me to put my knowledge in real application. It allows me to realise the importance of computer science study and the impact it has brought to the world.

Professors at the University of British Columbia come from all across the world from different cultures and ethnicities. They paid attention to each and every need of students, from academic studies to students’ personal needs. Besides, UBC’s academic culture intensely focuses on continuous evaluation and class participation is highly encouraged.
