The eight lectures cover a wide range of topITCS, including Internet, communications, algorithms, linear algebra, game theory and so on. Professors explained the profound theories with simple language, which enlarges the vision of the students. Through these lecture students were able to learn some basic concepts and theories, and they gained a lot from exchanging academic ideas with students from other universities.




Discussion After Class

The Chinese University of Hong Kong is located on a mountain strewn gracefully with buildings. It is a wonderful place for study with its green mountain, clear water and fresh air. One can smell the atmosphere of democracy, openness and freedom in the campus. After the lectures, the Chinese University of Hong Kong hosted a wonderful dinner party for the students.





Most of the students came to Hong Kong for the first time, and they were attracted by the comfortable environment, alluring shopping malls and beautiful scenery there. When they finished their study and discussion, they could relax themselves and enjoy a sightseeing tour.
