UROP Proceedings 2022-23

CHEN, Siyu BSc in Integrative Systems and Design It is incredible to think that just two years ago, I had no prior knowledge of research and had no idea how to start a project. Thanks to UROP, I was given the chance to work with my supervisor and Ph.D students. I learned everything from literature review to problem identi cation, proposing new ideas, conducting experiments, data analysis, and drawing conclusions. This entire process was vastly different from my undergraduate studies, and I learned valuable skills that will stay with me for a lifetime. Participating in UROP has given me a precious taste of research. When I am graduating, I decided to continue my research journey as a Ph.D student without any hesitation. The skills and knowledge I gained from UROP can surely be applied to my Ph.D studies. I am immensely grateful for this experience, and I highly recommend UROP to anyone who is interested in pursuing research. HO, Tsz Fung BEng in Computer Engineering During this UROP project, I have had the invaluable opportunity to work in the state-of-the-art research facilities, which are usually not accessed by undergraduate students. The program is a gateway for us to connect with emerging technologies under the guidance of renowned faculty members, where I can transfer theories I learnt from courses into real applications. I have developed a fruitful lot of analytical and problem-solving skills. It was a joyful experience collaborating with faculty researchers to create novel innovations. UROP helped me identify my career goals and equipped me for my future professional developments. Sharing by Students ii
