We are glad to announce that Mr Xiaochuan Xu, our final year student of BSc (Hons) in Computing, has received the honour of the “Outstanding Student Award of Department” for his exceptional accomplishments in both academic and non-academic pursuits during his study. Prof. Jin-Guang Teng, President of PolyU, officiated the Outstanding Student Award Presentation Ceremony on 12 March and presented the award certificates to the top undergraduate students. PolyU organises the Outstanding Students Award Scheme annually and it is one of the most prestigious award schemes which is set up to recognise high achievers.

Xiaochuan is a self-motivated and hardworking student. His decent academic profile, active involvement in extra-curricular activities and good personal qualities have equipped him to be an all-rounder. He was included several times in the Dean’s Honors List and won numerous competitive scholarships. Besides, he enthusiastically participated in co-curricular activities including outbound exchange to the USA, overseas internship in France, external competitions and community services. Xiaochuan also provided extensive services to the University such as assisting in PolyU Education Information Day, Buddy Programme, Orientation Programme for non-local students and PolyU SOAR Global Youth Leadership Programme as well as serving as the General Secretary for PolyU Chinese Mainland Students’ Association in which his strong leadership skills were well-demonstrated.

“In the past four years at COMP, I have gained not only solid academic knowledge in computer science and hands-on experience in using emerging computing technologies but also have acquired a clear vision of my career goal through the communications with the professors and many reaching out opportunities,” Xiaochuan shared. “In the future, I would like to become a prominent system architect working in the world-renowned Internet juggernauts.”

Congratulations to Xiaochuan on receiving the honour!
