Address by the Dean of Humanities and Social Science

Professor Kellee S. TSAI

Distinguished guests, graduates, parents, friends

and colleagues,

When our school welcomed you at the outset of your program, we reminded you that having a meaningful educational experience entails more than studying and learning in the classroom, and that your time with us in SHSS would be truly memorable. Both expectations came to fruition.

But not in the way that any of us ever imagined.

As members of the graduating Class of 2020, your generation will be remembered for coming of academic age during a period of political polarization and protest in Hong Kong, followed by a global pandemic. Whether you are an undergraduate student whose final year was fragmented by uncertainty, a Master’s student whose only year with us was similarly punctuated, or a research postgraduate student who defended a thesis via Zoom, you all had to adapt to a series

of fluid and profoundly challenging disruptions.

The congratulations that I offer you and your loved ones this year thus extend well beyond familiar expressions of pride for your academic accomplishments. Yes, you read large volumes of dense literature. Yes, you spent sleepless nights writing papers and studying for exams. Yes, you met the high standards of our faculty even if you may have had doubts about your

abilities along the way. All of you worked hard

ADDRESS BY THE DEAN OF HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCE

to earn your degrees. But you also did all of that under extraordinary conditions this past academic year—suddenly taking classes on- line, not seeing your classmates or professors in person, wondering if you will be able to find a job, and perhaps, worrying about friends and family members who have struggled with illness

or financial hardship.

It is precisely because you have completed your degree programs under more difficult circumstances that I am confident you will emerge as a more resilient class of graduates than your predecessors. Navigating through uncertain waters requires more creativity, more determination, and more patience than accomplishing something under smoother conditions. Managing the challenges of the past year have made you stronger and better equipped

to tackle the ones that lie ahead.

Meanwhile, we live in a digital age where technology imbues our daily lives. As more jobs are being automated, and conflicting sources of data are being marshalled to support different policy preferences, SHSS graduates are well poised to bring a critical yet compassionate perspective to understanding and addressing the most important issues of our time. You have the

capacity to lead by example.

As you transition the next stage of your professional or academic lives, you are also joining an intimate and supportive community of SHSS alumnae that you can count on to be a source of friendship and support for years to come. We are truly proud and honored to have the Class of 2020 join our alumnae network. Please keep in touch with each other and with us, SO we can share your accomplishments with other SHSS members. Congratulations to you and all the people who have supported you in this

journey!

Address by the Acting Dean of Science

Professor Andrew Glen COHEN

Distinguished guests, graduates, parents, friends

and colleagues,

It is my distinct honor and great pleasure to speak with you today, in celebration of two classes of students, the 2019 and 2020 School of Science

graduates.

Today I have but one official obligation, so let me

start by discharging this responsibility post-haste:

I offer you all my most heartfelt congratulations. After what must seem like an interminable period of toil, countless sleepless nights and, if your college career in any way resembled my own, mountains of junk food, you have arrived at this moment: the imminent conferral of that most important testament to your remarkable efforts:

your diploma.

In commemorating this milestone it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge others who have made your journey possible: your parents, siblings, and extended families; your friends and companions; your teachers and mentors. To all of you who have provided support, both material

and spiritual, you have my sincerest gratitude.

Now I am sure that many of you, in the midst of your joy and no doubt relief at reaching this important juncture in your lives, may be experiencing some trepidation regarding your

future in a world that seems to be perennially

ADDRESS BY THE ACTING DEAN OF SCIENCE

mired in crisis. With an uncertain economy, rising inequality, deteriorating international relations, a changing climate, and of course the pandemic that has transformed our lives over the past year, a

certain amount of anxiety may be understandable.

But it is precisely under these difficult circumstances that you should remember the diploma you receive today. This is a document bestowed upon you not simply as a reward for your performance on exams; not for your facility with non-linear differential equations; not for your understanding of the complex conditions that formed the black hole at the center of our galaxy; not for your understanding of the use of CRISPR-cas9 to remake the human genome; nor for any of these specific, wonderful areas of knowledge that you have mastered. Rather this diploma should more properly be thought of as a license, a permit to practice those skills which are the true measure of your academic prowess: your ability to think critically about the world around you; to look, listen, and ask questions; to recognize that the world, with all its challenges and problems, is fundamentally understandable through observation and reflection. And through this understanding, solutions will come, no matter how difficult or how insurmountable these

challenges may seem.

This is the true, deep meaning of today’s ceremony. It is not just a celebration of your accomplishments,

along with the conferral of a piece of paper so

often framed and hung on a wall or put away in

a drawer.

No, today’s ceremony is meant to serve as both recognition and reminder: a recognition of your profound ability to engage with the world and thereby make it better, and a reminder of your

obligation to do so.

I stand by you today with enormous pride in all of your accomplishments and equally enormous hope and expectations for your future. As you begin to write the next chapters in your personal stories, I wish you all health, happiness, and the

greatest success.

Address by the Director of Interdisciplinary Programs Office

Professor Huamin QU

Distinguished guests, graduates, parents, friends

and colleagues,

On behalf of the faculty and staff members of the Interdisciplinary Programs Office (IPO), I would like to congratulate all graduates. During the past year, every one of you have overcome the challenges brought by the societal development within Hong Kong and COVID-19 pandemic globally, like the anxiety of social divisiveness, the loneliness of social distancing, and the inconvenience of online classes. Despite all of these obstacles, you are successfully graduated

today. You should feel very proud of yourself.

The knowledge, skillsets and research achievements that every student acquired and accomplished at IPO, be it in the fields of the technology and management, risk management, environment and sustainability or public policy, all are closely related to our contemporary society. On one hand, the current world development trend is represented by the fast evolving technology of Al, robotics and quantum computing, iteration becomes faster and faster. On the other hand, Black swan events happen more often, human beings face the critical challenges like extreme climates, resources depletion, social cleavage, and ethnic opposition. Every discipline has its strengths and limitations. Any one single discipline cannot

cope with these challenges alone. We require

ADDRESS BY THE DIRECTOR OF INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS OFFICE

our students nowadays to have an independent critical thinking while embracing diverse views, more than ever. We also demand our students to acquire and integrate knowledge from different

disciplines to provide a comprehensive solution.

Like tackling COVID-19, we need expertise from different academic backgrounds including biology, medical, psychology, big data analysis and public policy to cooperate closely. Students are required to have a broad horizon and be able to master the problem-solving skills with the ability to integrate knowledge across different disciplines, this is exactly the vision and mission of the establishment of IPO. When entering university, you selected IPO, out of traditional Schools of Engineering, Science, Business and Management, and Humanities and Social Science, it might be because you did not want to be confined to any one single discipline, and be able to learn with and from students of different backgrounds and cultures, progress together day by day. I hope that you have realized your wishes here.

I hope the excellent sea view here in Clear Water Bay, the conscientious and responsible world- class professors, and the friendly and dedicated supporting staff will all stay in your wonderful memories of HKUST. “My way ahead is long; I see no ending; yet high and low I will search with my

will unbending.” You are about to turn a new page

in life. I hope you will remember and carry out the core values of HKUST which are Inclusiveness, Diversity, and Respect and the “Can-do” spirit. I hope you can apply what you have learned here to serve the society, to cope with the pressing challenges facing by human beings with your

mindset, skillsets and team spirit.

IPO will keep innovating and evolving to provide the best learning and research environment for nurturing the next generations. We will also enhance the future interactions with alumni and update our latest happenings to keep in touch with all of you. IPO is always a home that

welcomes you to come back often.

Address by the Graduate Representative of the School of Science

WANG Zhien

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

I am greatly honored to be invited to share my joy with everyone today. Over the years, many brilliant minds whose achievements surely tower over my own have blossomed at HKUST. If there is one quality that unites us all, it is a heart overflowing with gratitude. My sincere thanks to the various family members, close friends, teachers and staff whose tireless encouragement and support has ultimately made me the person

you see standing here today.

Students who are passionate about science are privileged to be able to explore a truly miraculous world of atoms, molecules and chemical reactions. The power to think independently and critically is yet another priceless gift I and my fellow Chemistry graduates will take away from our studies at HKUST.

In moving forward in a time of profound changes and challenges, it is my hope that we graduates of HKUST’s Class of 2020 will continue to be courageous. Congratulations to you all and let’s each never stop daring to dream big in the face of

all the uncertainties that surely lie ahead!

ZHANG Hoi-Lam

Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome! It is my great pleasure and honor to be

part of today’s Class of 2020 celebration!

My four years here have been a wild ride - these last 12 months in particular have been real doozies. While I was all fired up for a stress- filled final year, no one said anything about an impending global pandemic! Despite it being a trying time for us all, we dodged all the curveballs life threw at us and, hey, here we all stand as proud graduates of HKUST.

Marking the end of our undergraduate days and beginning of the time we must finally stand on our own two feet, graduation is equally amazing and terrifying. Like you, I feel daunted and find myself wondering where my next steps will lead me. But that’s OK! Life would never be much fun if everything was 100% pre-planned and packaged. Ultimately, regardless of whether we wish to test our mettle in society, pursue further studies or just take a break and relax for a while, HKUST has

given us everything we need to succeed!

ADDRESSES BY GRADUATE REPRESENTATIVES

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the professors who worked tirelessly 24/7 in sharing their knowledge and helping us become the best we could be! And let’s not overlook the amazing faculty staff who were always there to cheer us on whenever we fell. Without your patience, care and wise counsel these past four years, I don’t think

any of us would have made it this far!

2020 may have been tough, but it has brought out our inner perseverance and courage. With the right people at our back and us kitted out with the best tools, I am confident we’ve all got a bright

future!

Address by the Graduate Representative of the School of Science

Jeff York YE

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

As a Math graduate of the PMA track, I would like to congratulate my fellow graduates in reaching

this milestone in life.

When I entered HKUST four years ago, I was very ambitious. To give myself greater flexibility later on, I was determined to sign up for every course open to me. I am so grateful that my Math professors approved so many of my applications and were then so generous with their suggestions while I studied. Their support ultimately proved hugely influential in enabling me to map out my future academic path and rounding out my learning. My sincere thanks must also go to my fellow Math majors who so freely shared their insights into various specialist fields during our sometimes weary yet always fruitful academic

journey.

If I had to choose one quote to sum up my time at HKUST it would be former US President Dwight Eisenhower’s “While plans are useless, planning is indispensable”. Unpredictable events have a nasty habit of derailing the best laid plans. By

looking ahead, I learned to make better decisions

ADDRESSES BY GRADUATE REPRESENTATIVES

- even if it sometimes meant scrapping Plan A and adopting Plan B. Remember, rather than simply hope for the best outcome, it’s wise to ready ourselves for the worst and most probable scenarios! By staying flexible and holding some options back, our last cards can then always be

played with passion and conviction.

As our time at HKUST nears its end, we will meet many new people and experience multiple new adventures. In writing the next chapters in our life stories, let’s all resolve to face and overcome obstacles with pride and dignity come hell or high

water! I wish everyone good luck. Thank you!

YANG Yi

Doctor of Philosophy in Marine Environmental Science

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

I am a graduate from the Department of Ocean Science with a Doctor of Philosophy degree in

Marine Environmental Science.

One of the most unforgettable of my many wonderful experiences at HKUST came on day one of my PhD course. It was then that our department head Professor QIAN Peiyuan and faculty members explained what we needed to do to become excellent scientists. As we immersed ourselves in our studies, the staff of our department did everything possible to ensure we led equally fulfilling lives outside the lecture hall. Their kind introduction of various extra- curricular activities ultimately succeeded in greatly

enriching all of our academic lives.

On behalf of my fellow science graduates, I would like to extend my appreciation to all those - be they teachers, supporting staff, family or friends - who supported us on our academic journeys. As we prepare to bravely face the various difficulties life is sure to throw our way in the years ahead, I hope we will all remain passionate about science, experimentation and discovery. In closing, I would like congratulate and wish my fellow graduates in

every discipline a big, bright and bold future!

WONG King-Chun

Bachelor of Science in Physics

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

It is my great honor to have been selected to represent Physics department in congratulating my

fellow classmates on their academic attainments.

Like all disciplines, Physics constantly challenges students to elevate their thirst for knowledge to ever higher levels. Who among us here today can ever forget the terrible feeling of finishing an exam only to have discovered how much there was we had yet to learn? Or those frantic all-nighters that we ended up pulling just hours before urgent papers and lab

reports were due!

We’re now moving on to the next chapter in our life with daunting challenges lying ahead of us. The good news is that we have absolutely nothing to fear as our time at HKUST has made us all so adept at facing challenges and pushing the intellectual

envelope.

I am especially proud - if a little downhearted - to salute my inspirational teacher, Professor K.Y. SZETO, who sadly passed away earlier this year and

cannot join us in our well-deserved celebrations.

Once again, I’d like to congratulate my fellow graduates in HKUST’s Class of 2020.

Address by the Graduate Representative of the Interdisciplinary Programs Office

CHAN Lok-Hang Phoebe Master of Public Policy

Distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

I would like to begin by congratulating my fellow graduates on finally receiving their thoroughly well- deserved degrees during a genuinely unprecedented final year at HKUST.

While now is a challenging time to be starting a new chapter in our lives, HKUST has added resilience to our DNA. Having survived years of juggling our teachers’ famously tough deadlines with our own colorful extra-curricular activities, none of us are going to let a few bumps in life’s road slow our

forward momentum!

HKUST’s extended interdisciplinary family shares one common goal - to make the world a better place. Others’ opinions may sometimes cause us to question our decisions, but by staying true to the values we have learnt here, we will contribute to making our society better in 10 years’ time than it is

today.

ADDRESSES BY GRADUATE REPRESENTATIVES

In closing, I would like to thank all our professors for the dedication and time they’ve spent in teaching us, and to our parents and friends for supporting and

encouraging our growth.

Let me congratulate my 2020 classmates once again. Remember, no matter what life we lead or where we may find ourselves in a decade or so, self-belief and

hard work are all we need to succeed!
