Message from the Dean
Shuguang CUI / Presidential Chair Professor
Welcome to the School of Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHK-Shenzhen)!
In order to meet the strategic development needs of the booming industries in China and particularly in the Pearl River Delta region (PRD), School of Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHK-Shenzhen) is striving to build an international platform for scientific and technological innovation, and to cultivate all-rounded and creative talents in this exciting era.
School of Science and Engineering was founded and enrolled the first batch of undergraduate students in 2015. After four years’ study, their overall placement rate is as high as 98.85%. Aftre 2015, the number of undergraduate students has been increasing annually, with the proportion of international students scaling up as well. Now it is commonly accepted that Shenzhen is acting as a central hub of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. Combining the unique geographical, technological, and industrial advantages of Shenzhen as China’s Silicon Valley, School of Science and Engineering has set up a series of frontier undergraduate and graduate programs, which includes four undergraduate majors: Electronic Information Engineering, New Energy Science and Engineering, Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, Financial Engineering and Chemistry (MoE approval pending); two taught graduate programs: Executive Master of Science in Supply Chain and Logistics Management, and Science in Communications Engineering; and three research graduate programs: MPhil-PhD Program in Computer & Information Engineering, MPhil-PhD Program in Materials Science and Engineering and MPhil-PhD Program in Mathematics.
As a school, we have been marching on. In just a few years, we have recruited a team of top notch faculty members around the world, including multiple Turing Award Winners, Fields Medalists, Academicians across the world, and senior scholars from world-class universities. Adhering to the academic tradition of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and exploring the unique geographical and economic advantages, we have successfully secured government support for multiple key research teams. Meanwhile, we also have built several joint laboratories between the university and leading enterprises, which include CUHKSZ-Tencent AI Lab Joint Lab of Machine Intelligence, CUHKSZ-JD Joint Lab of AI, and so on.
Therefore, here I encourage all students to seize the opportunity with the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, to learn its spirit and value, and to become an individual who dares to explore the unknown, think deeply, innovate constantly and make a clear career plan with your own development goals. I wish you can make use of the four fruitful years in this university to enrich yourself, broaden your horizon, accumulate more knowledge, and well prepare yourself for the future. As a member of SSE, we should always study hard and meet the opportunities and challenges with positive attitude. While our professional knowledge being accumulated, we should constantly improve our moral standard and enrich our spiritual world. As SSE fellows, we should keep our feet on the ground and envision beyond the cloud with confidence and long-term commitment.
Last but not the least, I sincerely welcome outstanding students and scholars around the globe to join us and build a better SSE!
