This time, that year……everything was so different.
Our alumni, who returned to CityU campus for an evening gathering at CMC on 23 June 2014 by the invitation of EE Ambassador Students, were astonished to see how CityU evolving in recent years during their campus tour.
For those who had not come back since their graduation, meeting their teachers again and some current EE students who were 3 years or even 10 years their junior was definitely a special experience, as well as a good time to recall their vivid memories of their campus days.
Mr. Ricky Wong Wai-Kay, the Chairman of Hong Kong Television Network Limited (HKTV), was invited by EE Department to deliver a talk on trends and developments on IT industry on 19 March 2014, Wednesday. With a full house of more than 200 participants, Ricky’s humorous and quick-witted sharing and responses sparkled laughter and hand-clapping throughout the lecture theatre. Ricky reiterated that future would be in the hands of young people who were the owners of tomorrow’s world.
Students grasped every minute of the Q&A session to learn from Ricky. One of the questions was what would Ricky have done in order to kick off a new plan if he were him, as a student in his early 20s having no resources and connections. Ricky gave the second part of his answer on a newspaper column on Sky Post on 26.03.2014.
建立自信 26/03/2014, 晴報
沒錯，20歲與50歲的人生是截然不同。50歲的時候回望20歲，我會反思20歲的時候，應該做些甚麼，才能走到今天。 若只從做生意的角度看，答案是建立自信，因為沒有自信，就甚麼都不敢做。 從商的路存在很大的不確定性，也沒有人能預計結果，只能「博一博」。 沒有任何一個行業或機構是必勝，一切只在乎執行，但執行的能力就取決於自信。信心愈多，就愈會堅持到底；信心不夠的話，每當遇到困難和挑戰，就會覺得成功的機會不高，容易放棄。
With much honor the Department invited renowned IT and Electronics Companies to give career talks to our final year undergraduate and master students on 4 March 2014 and 25 March 2014. In total about 200 students joined. Participating companies include:
Experienced professionals of the companies spared their valuable time to advise our students of the possible career opportunities and prospect, not only limited to those in their companies, but also in the IT and electronics industry at large. EE graduates working in some of the companies came back to encourage their fellows by sharing their own stories on career development. EE students also grabbed the valuable chance provided at the break-out sessions to know more in-depth about the companies, the jobs and the industry.

|EE students participated actively during the break-out sessions leading to a fruitful ending of the event on both dates.|
On a relaxing Saturday afternoon on 22 February 2014, graduates of different years came back to share with final year students their personal stories on job seeking, career development as well as views on keeping abreast and staying ahead of the ever-changing technology. In particular, 5 of the 26 graduates of 2013 employed by PCCW Limited dropped by to join us. Sitting in groups with alumni in the Cloud Computing Center, students grasped every chance to ask questions and listen to advice from their “big brothers” attentively. Meanwhile, some FYP supervisees of Dr Andy Chan and Dr Tim Ko arrived for a reunion gathering at the Innovation Centre. Everybody had a wonderful afternoon, and it was great to see the generations interacting and learning from each other.
Ms Pandora Cheung, a renowned trainer on professional image and business etiquette, was invited by EE Department to conduct a training session on professional image building, job application and interview skills to EE students in the EE Innovation Centre on 17 February 2014, Monday.
From her experience of being a professional trainer in HK and Mainland China for over 18 years ago as well as crowned as a beauty queen in 1975, Mary shared with us a long list of Dos and Don’ts from heads to toes, from inside out, which was a gentle and stunning reminder to all participants.
Mary illustrated and explained to our students who would join the workforce shortly on what males and females should wear, how we should behave during job interviews and the reasons behind.
Widely recognized as one of the most successful women in town, Ms Cheung has dedicated most of her time to community service. She is the recipient of the "Hong Kong Ten Outstanding Young Persons Award", the "Women of the 21st Century" and "Most Successful Women" awards. She has been running training workshops for business partners, universities, government departments and NGOs in Hong Kong and Mainland China for years.
