Connecting Hong Kong PhD Fellows
More than a hundred HKUST awardees of the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS), faculty members as well as administrative staff members from different units mingled together in a festive gathering on 28 September 2017. After a warm welcome by Prof Charles W W Ng, Associate Vice-President for Research and Graduate Studies, a number of HKPFS fellows went on stage to share personal experience about making the best of research and campus life at the University.
Attendees enjoyed a wide range of activities including the lucky draw and photo-taking at the dedicated photo booth to commemorate the joyful get-together. Many put on temporary tattoos with wordings such as ’愛HKUST’ (i.e. ‘love ─ HKUST’). Coming from different countries and cultures, participants prided themselves on waving their national flags to take pictures, composing scenes of harmony in diversity.
