I would like to express my deepest gratitude to PolyU BME for providing me with this great environment to expand my knowledge and explore my interests. I would like to share my experience and gains over the past years in the following parts.
All teachers from BME had positive impacts on me from different aspects. For instance, my academic advisor Dr. Puxiang Lai provided counselling on my career plan; Dr Hin Chung Lau helped shape and train my creative thoughts in research & design; Dr Thomas Lee provided much support to my study and internship; my supervisor Dr Xin Zhao provided lots of instructions and help on my research work. I also self-initiated to join Dr. ZHAO’s biomaterial research group. During my work in her lab, I finally figured out biomaterial and tissue engineering is a direction I am willing to devote my effort to pursue.
BME courses have relatively small class size, so the connections between students and students, students and professors are very close. Professors can attend to every student during class, and students know each other very well. BME is like a big warm family. I felt very comfortable and happy to study in such an environment and enjoyed the time spent with my classmates and teachers.
