Chen Jiashu, a Year Three electronic engineering student at the City University of Hong Kong, has added another prestigious scholarship to his accomplishments. Mr Chen has been awarded an Undergraduate Scholarship by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society for his achievements in radio frequency integrated circuit research. The scholarship offers US$1,500 to 10 students worldwide annually. Mr Chen was also one of 27 recipients worldwide to win a Fulbright Science and Technology Fellowship earlier this year. He was the only Hong Kong student to receive the scholarship. The Fellowship will cover his PhD studies at the University of Berkeley, California. He also won the championship award in the Undergraduate Degree Group of the Younger Members Conference organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Hong Kong, earlier this year. Mr Chen says he sees his scholarships and awards not as 'success' but as a good starting point for his PhD, which will begin in August. 'I'm really glad to be given the opportunity to study in the US, where the research in this field is more advanced at the moment,' said Mr Chen, adding that he will always cherish his university experiences on the mainland and Hong Kong. Chan Chiu-hou, dean of the Faculty of Science and Engineering at CityU, said: 'Jiashu not only excels academically, but more importantly, he is conscientious in whatever he works on and has a good learning attitude to help him get results.' When asked to give advice to current students, Mr Chen said the most important thing to remember is to try hard at all you do. Anjali is a Young Post intern.
