中大通讯 CUHK Newsletter 学生感言 Student’s Comments 孙慧 Sun Hui 「来港初期,由于不谙广东话,适应有点困难,于是常找数学系老师 聊天。感谢他们的鼓励和照顾,要不是他们的帮助,我想没有今天的 成就。此外,课程的灵活设计,也让我随意选读感兴趣的科目。」 ‘Language was a problem when I first arrived as I didn’t speak Cantonese. But when I told my teachers about it, not only did they encourage me but they also paid me special attention. Without their help, I would not have had such achievement. The design of the curriculum was flexible too. I was free to choose the subjects I liked.’ 方展龙 Fong Chin-lung 「中大的数学课程殊不浅易,我曾以交换生和实习生身分到美国, 更发觉中大的课程尤较当地一些院校艰深。同学们都很优秀,能与 兴趣和能力相近的人一起学习,深入讨论,实是快事。我更怀念宿 舍生活,从中学到统筹活动和沟通的技巧,而所获的友谊,比知识 更为珍贵。」 ‘The University’s mathematics curriculum is not easy. In fact, I found it more difficult than those at the US universities where I was an exchange student and intern. I enjoy learning and discussing with talented classmates with similar interests. I also miss living in the hostel where I made friends and enhanced my organizational and communication skills.’ 吴弢 Wu Tao 「在中大念书,真的获益良多。中大的教学水平非常高,科研项目 也做得很好,而师生人数比例亦较内地大学理想,不少科目每班只 有六至八人,老师较容易照顾我们的需要,也有助对某一领域形成 兴趣。宿舍生活更让我与其他科系的同学交流,了解他们的专业知 识。」 ‘My four-year university life in CUHK was fruitful. Both the teaching and research quality were outstanding. And the student-teacher ratio was better than that at mainland universities. There were only six to eight students per class for quite a lot of subjects. That means teachers could pay more attention to students’ needs. Hostel life also provided opportunities for me to interact with students majoring in different disciplines which broadened my vision.’ 1. 本刊每月出版两期,农历新年和暑期停刊。 T he CUHK Newsletter is published on a fortnightly basis except during the Chinese New Year and summer vacation. 2. 截稿日期载于本刊网页: Deadlines for contributions can be found at: www.cuhk.edu.hk/iso/newsletter/ 3. 来稿请寄沙田香港中文大学资讯处《中大通讯》编辑部(电话 2609 8681 / 2609 8589 ,传真 2603 6864 ,电邮 iso@cuhk.edu.hk ) 。 All contributions should be sent to the Editor, CUHK Newsletter , Information Services Office, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (tel. 2609 8681 / 2609 8589; fax. 2603 6864; e-mail iso@cuhk. edu.hk ). 4. 编辑有权删改及决定是否刊登来稿。 The Editor reserves the right to decline contributions and to edit all articles. 香港中文大学资讯处出版 Published by the Information Services Office, The Chinese University of Hong Kong 中大通讯 CUHK Newsletter 十二名数学高材生获美加名校全费奖学金 Math Students Receive Full Scholarships from Top Universities 中 大数学系今年有多达12名本科及研究生获著名大学提 供全费奖学金,于9月负笈美加,修读研究院课程。这 群幸运儿当中,有五位当年早已崭露头角,循中六生优先录取 计划入读中大。他们在大学的悉心培育下,持续进取,终成大 器。 这些顶尖院校一般会每年给研究生提供四至五万美元的奖助 学金,为期五年,让他们无后顾之忧,专心研习。12位中大生所 获的奖学金及其他资助总额逾两千万港元之巨。 数学系系主任刘家成教授为学生的出色表现感到高兴,他说: 「同时有12名学生获奖学金实属难得,提供奖学金的院校不但 是著名大学,每年亦只录取极少海外研究生。我们的学生能占 一席位,显示他们的学术水平卓越。」 数学系有逾两成毕业生会继续深造,与世界著名大学比较, 这个比例毫不逊色。过去三年,已有二十多名毕业生获美加及 欧洲的大学,如普林斯顿大学、滑铁卢大学及荷兰Tinbergen Institute等招揽,提供全额奖学金,入读研究课程,足见中大的 学生素质已达国际水平。 中大一直积极与海外的著名学府及机构保持联系,为学生发掘 交流和实习的机会,拓阔国际视野,增强竞争力。过去三年,前 往世界各地交流及实习的数学系学生多达70人次。 T welve undergraduate andMPhil mathematics students of CUHK received full fellowships/studentships from top North American universities to further their studies in September. Five of them had entered the Chinese University via the Early Admissions Scheme on the merit of their outstanding HKCEE results. Top universities generally provide each student with a five-year scholarship of US$40,000–$50,000 per year. The fellowships/studentships received by the 12 CUHK students amounted to more than HK$20 million. Chairman of the Department of Mathematics, Prof. Lau Ka-sing is heartened by the students’ performance. ‘We are very happy to have 12 students receiving full scholarships fromfamous institutions. Themathematics departments of these universities usually accept only a handful of overseas graduates per year and our students are on the list. This is a recognition of their academic ability.’ In the past, over 20% of CUHK mathematics graduates chose to further their studies—a very encouraging percentage compared to any top university in the world. During the past three years, over 20 CUHK graduates have received full scholarships from famous universities in North America and Europe such as Princeton University, University of Waterloo and Tinbergen Institute, the Netherlands, to further their studies. The University partners with world-famous universities and organizations to provide its students with the opportunity to go on exchange and internship. Over the past three years, some 70 CUHK mathematics students have gone on exchange or internship to universities in different countries. 获全费奖学金学生 List of Scholarship Recipients 姓名 Name 提供院校 Offered by 陈伟杰 Chan Wai-kit 哲学硕士生 MPhil 印第安那大学 Indiana University 张汶慧 Cheung Man-wai 本科生 BSc 伊利诺大学 University of Illinois 张琬琳* Cheung Yuen-lam 本科生 BSc 滑铁卢大学 University of Waterloo 招剑航* Chiu Kim-hong Fraser 本科生 BSc 哥伦比亚大学 Columbia University 方展龙* Fong Chin-lung 本科生 BSc 史丹福大学 Stanford University 许俊彦 Hui Chun-yin 哲学硕士生 MPhil 伊利诺大学 University of Illinois 卢智宇 Lo Chi-yu 哲学硕士生 MPhil 印第安那大学 Indiana University 麦杰豪 Mak Kit-ho 哲学硕士生 MPhil 伊利诺大学 University of Illinois 孙慧 Sun Hui 本科生/内地生 BSc/mainland student 加州大学洛杉矶分校 University of California, Los Angeles 谢树堂* Tse Shu-tong 本科生 BSc 明尼苏达大学 University of Minnesota 黄永康* Wong Wing-hong Tony 本科生 BSc 加州理工学院 California Institute of Technology 吴弢 Wu Tao 本科生/内地生 BSc/mainland student 北卡罗来纳大学 University of North Carolina * 循中六生优先录取计划入读中大 admitted via the Early Admissions Scheme
