PolyU JUPAS Consultation Day was successfully held on 20 May 2023 at the university campus, offering up-to-date programme information to JUPAS applicants. The departmental event featured an info seminar, guided lab tours, and hands-on workshops.
During the info seminar, Dr LEONG Hong Va, Associate Professor and Associate Head of COMP, gave a detailed presentation on the bright prospect of the tech industry that benefited from the surge of generated AI and Web3. He highlighted the features of the BSc (Hons) Scheme in Computing & AI, explained entrance requirements and provided helpful tips for JUPAS applicants. Dr YIU Man Lung Ken, Associate Professor, then shared information on various learning opportunities at COMP, including programmes for exchange, internships and mentorship. Additionally, a Year 4 student, LAM Wai Kit Alex, talked about his personal experiences at COMP, as well as the interesting and challenging sides of studying computing.
To give participants a glimpse of the research and teaching facilities of COMP, guided laboratory tours were hosted at our Game Lab and Research Centre on Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, where they could try out the mixed reality applications designed by our students and staff. The last activities of the day were two workshops on the topics “AI-generated Arts” and “Crypto wallet in MetaMask”, conducted by Dr Richard LUI and Dr Dennis LIU, our Senior Teaching Fellows, respectively.
The event provided a platform for prospective students to learn more about our undergraduate programmes and gain hands-on experience in cutting-edge technologies.
