The Department of Computer Science and Engineering selected 37 outstanding students from 338 well-known universities to participate in the summer camp of computer science. Among them, they are from 211,985 universities including Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Sichuan University, Xiamen University, Jinan University, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.
Chen Shiyi’s speech
President Chen gave a welcoming speech at the opening ceremony. He said that students who participated in the SUSTech Summer Camp could be considered lucky compared to his own experience as a postgraduate in 1982. The students all arrived recently in SUSTech's beautiful campus in Shenzhen, and will have have the opportunity to learn more about the city's and the university’s rapid development, which both attract the attention of the world’s top universities, companies and governments. They will also have the opportunity to visit some of the world's leading hi-tech companies based here in Shenzhen. As one of the students said, “if we join SUSTech in the future, we know that we have access to the best learning resources and excellent guidance from the professors here. We know it’s one of our best options.” President Chen Shiyi said that he hoped the students would make the most of the four days of summer camp at SUSTech, to not only discover the university and its philosophy but also bring out the best of themselves and keep fantastic memories of their stay. Tang Tao then took to the stage to talk to the young students about the university’s mission, campus planning, management system and the faculty situation. He particularly focused on the excellent professors and researchers that SUSTech has attracted. Tang Tao said that the main difference he found between graduate students and undergraduates is that graduate students pay more attention to choosing a good mentor. In this regard, he said he was very confident that SUSTech could provide the best.
Tang Tao introduced SUSTech’s profile
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering summer camp students also participated in the Department of CSE professional introduction. The Department Director Prof. Yao Xin first welcomed students; he explained the differences between computer science and computer engineering from his own professional experience and he went on encouraging students to communicate more with their intended research supervisors to find out their own research interests and direction. Deputy Director Prof. Hao Qi focused on introducing the Department of CSE teachers, curriculum and research areas. On the last day of the summer camp, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering organized the students to visit Shenzhen Sangfor Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen UBTech Co., Ltd., as well as the laboratories of SUSTech. The summer camp students also obtained the knowledge and fun from the practice.
