School days' Dream
I was a boy who liked very much to make radio, etc. I had experience when I built and tuned a TV manually for months, without a clear visible movie. One day, when I changed some parts, clear movie signals were shown on the display, I was so excited that I cannot forget the moment forever. I made the decision to work to be an engineer, at that time.
Current Dream
To educate the students, for them to be global talents. To support creation of such students/graduates' ventures that will give strong impacts to the world
Motto
Chinese idiom "clumsy birds have need of early flight"i.e. the slower one needs to start earlier and work harder
Favorite Books
1. The book titled "How to solve it" by mathematician George Polya, has been translated into different languages and has been a long-seller. It used very easy understanding examples to show how to understand and solve various problems. The methods proposed are general, and can be used for many fields, not only mathematics. 2. The book titled "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People", is a business and self-help book written by Stephen R. Covey. It is mainly for business persons. However, students can also get a lot of hints on how to deal with your time schedule, your friends, your family, and yourself. It will help you to improve your life, such as studying, part time jobs, club activities, and making friends.
Messages for Students
1. Message to Undergraduate Students: Wonderful and beneficial university life = Try the best to get all necessary credits + Find one thing that you really want to do. 2. Message to Graduate Students : Try your best to study. Keep your dream in mind, and challenge one thing which can open new window to the world. It will be a good experience for your future, even though you can't finally reach the goal.
