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.

Stepping stone used to be what I said when people asked me about CC. That’s no longer my answer. Studying in CC changed my way of thinking and perception. There are so many courses which I found new and very interesting. CC not only serves as a platform for me to attain qualification but also a place to equip and to prepare for further studying. I’m thankful for what the lecturers have taught me and their hard work on helping me to meet my goals. I live a very fruitful life in CC, I have made many friends and been involved in all types of school activities. For me, the pace has been fast, and that definitely has been reminding me to avoid procrastination. I think you have to love learning to enjoy the journey. My tips are to always sit in the first row, take better notes, make friends with those who are diligent, and avoid temptations. Prospective schoolmates: Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the journey.

This year, I have experienced the most unforgettable time in my life. Standing up from the place that I have fallen down is never easy.
I still remember the day when I registered in HKU SPACE CC. I felt helpless and the dream of entering university was lost. I didn’t know what I should do next. Luckily, I meet nice lecturers here. They are always ready to help students, no matter academically or psychologically. They always share useful information with us which is extremely useful in pursuing further studies. Without their help, I wouldn't have passed through the hard times.
Besides lecturers, my classmates are also equally important in my study life. We work hard together and strive for the common goal. Our positive attitude has motivated us to study harder.
When I think of the past, I realize studying in HKU SPACE CC is the right choice. It provides me a stepping stone to be well-prepared for studying in university. Academically, I can learn university-level knowledge prepare me to study in university. Psychologically, HKU SPACE CC is a place for me to adapt the flexible studying style, which I now am also experiencing.
Most of you may think studying in associate degree means failure. However, if you can put down your sadness, try your best and never give up, you can finally succeed! Wish all of you can achieve your dreams!
