I didn't know the reputation of Peking University until the last minute before the college entrance examination. When I was a sophomore in Peking Univ, I already decided to join HKUST. It's pretty ridiculous, since I knew nothing about UST at that time. Now as a UST graduate, I would appreciate that perfect decision.

For two reasons I love HKUST. Firstly, the campus is small and beautiful. Everything, e.g. dorm, office, bank, canteen, supermarket, gym, can be reached in five minutes walking distance. I can focus on my research without leaving campus for months if I want. Secondly, labs are always filled with passionate students. They are both very good collaborators and very good friends. HKUST is really an ideal place for pursuing a PhD degree.

Going to HKUST for my Ph.D. is the best career decision I have made. The university and the CSE department provide an ideal environment for research excellence and world-class achievements. I completed my Ph.D. in 3.5 years, with a publication list that directly placed me in an Assistant Professor position at Singapore Management University. In addition to the academic qualifications I acquired at HKUST, my stay in the vibrant and ever evolving Hong Kong was also an unforgettable experience.

A Few Quotes:

It may sound a bit cliche, but I cannot emphasize more the saying 'no pain, no gain'. Keep the hard work and the time will come for you (and me too) to relish our new achievements.

聽起來有些老生常談,不過我還是想說:沒有付出,就沒有收穫。只要保持你的工作/學習熱情,收穫的時刻就在不遠方等待你。
