UG Staff-Student Liaison Committee
In order for the ECE Department to understand students' needs and improve our programs, curriculum and activities, we need comments and suggestions from our students. Therefore, every year, we invite ECE students to become Student Ambassadors and attend the official Staff-Student Liaison meetings once every semester, where they could voice out comments to faculty members of the UG Student Affairs Committee.
Role of the ECE Ambassadors
Collect suggestions and comments about the department from other students in their year of study.
Advise junior students for academic and non-academic matters, such as course selection/enrollment, study path, internship, career development, etc.
- Assist department in outreaching activities.

Cheuk Chee Angie CHAN
"Hello everyone. I am Angie and it’s my second year in HKUST. I am very interested in robotics, so I joined robotics team in my first year. It is absolutely the most unforgettable university experience for me. From my experience in the robotics team, I realised that my passion for ECE is far beyond all other majors, and that’s why I chose ECE. I love travelling around and knowing more about different places and cultures. Engaging with people from all around the world is always so fascinating. Whenever you are confused about your pathway or you want someone to share your own things with, you are always welcome to contact me."
"Nice to meet everyone! Hello, I’m Joey, an Year 2 ECE student from Taiwan. I was always interested in the technology field and entered UST with excitement. I took several ELEC courses during Year 1 and was fascinated by what electronic engineering can do to change the world. I chose ECE as my major to learn and deep into the advanced field of technology. I never regretted my choice. I cherish and enjoy every moment as an ECE student. I love to travel and play sports a lot. Feel free to make friends with me and play together. Also don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s any questions that you encounter. I’m sure all ambassadors will all be willing to provide advice and assist.

"My name is Chen Runzhou, a year 2 student from Mainalnd China and it's my honor to be an ECE Ambassador.
I've taken several ECE courses in my first 3 semesters and thus developed interest in this discipline. The knowledge about electronical engineering enables me to understand how those electronics work in real world works and how the advanced technology developes. I have never doubted that choosing ECE as my major is one of the fantastic decisions I have ever made.
I am an outgoing person with a lot of hobbies such as travelling and doing sports. Meanwhile I also study hard to achieve a satisfactory academic performance as I understand the importance of work-play balance. So I would like to give a hand to those in need.
It's my pleasure to help the department and junior students and I will try the best to do this work."

"Hello, my name is Gary, currently a year 3 ELEC student and going for a minor in IT. While I was choosing my major, I didn't have much passion, but soon I am fascinated by what electronic engineering can achieve and started to have a vision of my own future in this field. I really hope all of you can find your own interest and dream in ELEC like me! ECE is a warm family: my advisors and my peers have given me a lot of support and valuable advice, so if you encounter any problem during your studies, me and other ambassadors are always grateful to help!
