I studied Computer Science at HKU SPACE Community College where I took different programming courses which are a major component in Engineering. No matter whether you have studied programming or not, it requires a lot of self-learning, especially in both individual and group projects. To make achievements in programming projects, I always consider about the user's view and further usage of the product. Our programming lectures provide basic theories and knowledge which have been extremely useful in applying to programming applications but sometimes challenging.

Apart from academics, I am also an IVP of the IT Society, which have held software courses for students' need. It is fun to hold events for society members, like mass games for freshmen. Being an IVP has enhanced my leadership and communication skills, which are valuable in studies and working life. Therefore, I encourage fellow students to take part in societies' activities and services.

Hope all of you enjoy studying at HKU SPACE CC.

I am Michael Lam and I am currently a year 2 student studying Associate of Engineering in Electronic Engineering.

I chose to study Engineering as it offers mathematical and computational knowledge and it is a subject which helps to create an array of different products including smartphones and other products we use in daily life.

HKU SPACE Community College (CC) is a good place to improve yourself in all areas and to learn about something you love to do and study.

I understood that CC was my last chance to get into the university. I tried to change myself. I learned to pay more in what, including academic and interpersonal relationship, I was weak at. I have become more all-round than before and this is the most important thing aside from a place in university that I have gained from HKU SPACE CC.

After the failure of the HKDSE, I have chosen HKU SPACE Community College to continue my studies. Fortunately, I have received two offers from two universities after two years of studying in College. There is no denying that hard working is the paramount key to surviving in this competitive environment. Everyone in this college is trying to score a high GPA to get into university, thus, I needed to be proactive and hard working. Actually, I was not a hard-working person when I was studying in secondary school and everything changed after attending classes in the college. I realize that I need to work hard and change my studying attitudes and methods. The key to success is not only hard work, but also seeking help from the lecturers. Whenever I faced challenges in learning the subject content and I would consult my lecturer after the lessons and they are willing to help and provide guidance to overcome complex issues. Maintaining a strong understanding of the knowledge gained and received in class and getting advice from lecturers is beneficial to working hard and learning how to apply theory and knowledge into individual and group assignments.

Because I didn't do well enough in HKDSE, I was frustrated and decided to go to CC before applying to a university.
Not only academic knowledge, lecturers are always enthusiastic to help us about our careers. Besides, my classmates are friendly and all of us have the same goal which is getting a degree in the university. This positive learning atmosphere definitely motivates me to work harder and achieve excellent results in examinations.
After two years of hard work, I got degree offers from CUHK and HKUST. I then realized that I had made the right decision at the very beginning. If you think you and HKDSE do not get along, associate degree programmes may be another path for you.

在CC讀副學士只有短短兩年,時間並不長,但對我來說卻非常重要。我學到很多不同知識,亦認識了很多不同的人。

在CC,除了自己的主修外,還要學習其他科目的知識,例如藝術、歷史、社會科學等,達至全人教育。因此,我了解自己的能力和選科的重要性。就我而言,因我數理比較強,所以讀工程比較輕鬆,但其他科目則比較遜色。有些同學因選了不合適的科目,結果讀得非常辛苦,成積又不理常。所以選對了就事半功倍,反之則事倍功半。學習以外,我也認識了不少對工程很有熱誠的朋友,有些對程式很在行,有些則對硬件很了解。從他們身上我獲益良多。

在此希望大家亦能在CC獲得成功,找到自己的理想,並達到自己的目標。

因為我跟朋友一起入讀CC,所以起初只跟自己的朋友玩樂及溫習,沒想過會認識到新朋友,後來,透過小組習作,認識了幾位朋友,假期時還一起踏單車。在CC,很容易認識新朋友,只要不是「free-rider」,組員都可以成為戰友。而且,CC的講師很友善,不論是學業或升學問題,他們都會細心分析及講解,就算下課以後,也可以找他們傾談,師友之間如朋友相處。今年,我慶幸獲得科技大學及中文大學的取錄,所謂塞翁失馬焉知非福,我相信DSE不會令我有機會入讀三大,但,CC就重新給予我入讀大學的機會,希望正在閱讀這段分享的你都可以努力加油,不要灰心。
