Every human domain from education, manufacturing, transport, entertainment, to healthcare is becoming better, safer, more economical, and even possible thanks to the contributions of computer science. However, being a computer science student isn’t easy at all. I doubted my decision to major in this discipline when I stepped into the computer science classes, lost in all kinds of terms and theories, or when I meddled in the codes and bugs, anxiously and exhaustedly. But this is the charm of computer science—problems keep mounting while solving them will give you a sense of achievement and push your knowledge to a higher level. It is a headache and a joy. It challenges you and rewards you. I would like to devote the rest of my life to this field;…show more content…
The most recent works of mine was an Android app about smart tourism. I first determined the functions of the app, including travel routes planning, real-time navigation, hotels and restaurants recommendation, scenic spots introduction, emergency services, and weather and parking space inquires. It took me much time to design the framework and the business logics as they were essential for the next steps and the value of the app. After that, I developed the client side, built the server by Apache Tomcat 7.0 and operated the MySQL database. Though having many development experiences, I didn’t feel easier during this process and there were no fewer problems facing me. One of the difficulties was connecting the database. I downloaded MySQL and prepared the corresponding JDBC, only to find the connection was insufficient. Without any clue, I turned to the IT forums, which inspired me to connect the database based on a c3p0 data source. The database issue was solved, but it was not the time to celebrate. The interface design was another difficulty for me. However hard I tried to improve the interface, it was far from satisfactory and attractive. I discussed the problem with the tutor, who kindly suggested HTML5 for designing the interfaces of Android apps. I took the advice and eagerly learned the new…show more content…
To decode more mysteries of computer science, I decide to apply for your MSc in Computer Science programme. I have been longing for studying at HKU, an international university that is renowned for the excellence in research and teaching, dynamic campus, and inspiring faculty. The undergraduate classes have aroused my interest in image processing, computer graphics, and multimedia technology, and I can’t wait to gain new perspectives on these topics in your Image processing and computer vision and Multimedia technologies. A master degree of HKU will open the doors to many promising careers in major companies. AlphaGo, a program developed by Google’s DeepMind has shown us the potential of AI. It is poised to be a trend and I aspire to work on AI in Google after graduation. In the long run, I want to establish my own technology company. I might not as smart as Mark Zuckerberg, but I have the guts and ambition and believe success begins with impossible
