Let us share the feeling of 2 of the awardees, Ip Tak Shun and Siu Po Wa.

I am very glad to receive the Academic Achievement Award, which recognizes my achievement in HKUST. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the professors of the Department of Computer Science for their dedicated teaching, which inspired my interest in the field of computer science. — Ip Tak Shun

Without the support from my family and friends, I could hardly graduate with the Academic Achievement Award. Looking back to my undergraduate years, it was enjoyable and fun, even though often loaded with assignments and examinations. I would like to thank the professors of the Department of Computer Science who are extremely important for my development, especially Professor Samuel Chanson, my FYP supervisor and a personal mentor, he has given our group many valuable advices on both FYP and life, at the same time he has shown his patience, kindness and caring to his students. — Siu Po Wa

Congratulations to the awardees and we wish them all the best in their career path and further studies!
