The INTERVIEW

Question 1

 

Could you tell us some difference between the students on UST and CityU?

您认为UST和CityU的学生有什么不同之处?

“CityU is really talking about the vocational training while UST is focusing on the theoretical stuff. To me UST students are more hardworking.”

 CityU强调职业训练而UST专注于理论知识。在我看来,UST的学生们更加努力。

 

Question 2

Why did you choose CS as your major?

为什么选择了计算机科学为您的专业呢?

“When I was in my high school days, I usually try to play around with the computer a lot. It’s like naturally I would be interested in doing things with computers.”

自年少时的热爱,答案无非是兴趣使然。

Question

When can you feel the beauty of your major most?

计算机科学的最美之处?

“It is pretty fascinating when I first saw those kind of things that you can create from very basic.”

越过精美的结果,看着一切由简至繁,欣赏它的枯燥而严谨,沉闷而理性。

Question 4

 

What do you think is the greatest stereotype or myth about your major?

您认为人们对于计算机科学最大的刻板印象是什么?

“When I was studying, people think you are working in a computer shop, Nowadays people are more inclined to think about computer scientists as just a programmer.”

老一辈认为你在电脑铺工作,而现在人们倾向于将计算机科学家和程序员划等号。

 

Question 5

How you usually plan your time to balance the teaching and research.

您一般如何去平衡教学与研究的任务?

Would you like to share how you organize and prioritize your work?

可以分享一下您是如何排列工作任务的优先级并规划时间的吗?

“It’s just like our students, usually we are deadline fighters, so before the deadline, you just have to light sleep four hours a day.”

与大家无异,死线战士一名,所需付出的代价就是死线之前一天四小时的可怜睡眠时间。

Question

Is there a close relationship between the grade in intro course (COMP 1021) and their potential in this major?

您认为学生在专业入门课拿的成绩与他学习该专业的潜质有关联吗?

“If you could not get a good grade, then you really have to think about whether it is because of your ability, suitability. But if you can work on the tools well and understand what it means, it’s just because you didn’t perform well in exam, then there is still a way that you will be able to get back into studying computer science.”

你需要考虑未拿到好成绩的原因是自身能力不足,不适合计算机专业,还是说你明白一切内容并能良好操作,只是因为同辈太厉害,使你没有在考试中优胜。若是后者,那便仍有机会学习计算机。

Question 7

What did you think about UG program students come to research?

您如何看待本科学生参与研究项目?

Is it too early for us to do research just in the first year?

大一学生参与研究会否太早了呢?

“Doing research requires a little bit of a different way of working, compared to coursework. There is no definite answer to say whether undergraduate students can or cannot do so, it’s just whether you are given the correct opportunity to do it.”

科研与课业是全然不同的两种工作模式。因此本科生与否根本不重要,重要的事你是否被给予了一个合适的机会去参与科研项目。
