Student Mentoring Scheme (SMS)
Throughout the academic year, regular informal gatherings are organized by student mentors to help new students adapt smoothly to university life. A variety of activities are organized such as orientation tours, company visits and study workshops in which student mentors can share their experiences with new students as well as monitor their continued progress.
Mentor-mentee gathering in the Student Orientation
The scheme provides service-learning opportunities to CityU’s undergraduate students through on-campus employment to enhance students’ understanding of the work environment and their long-term personal and professional development.
The Department has been heavily involved in the scheme by employing students for various activities ranging from technical support to participation in research.
With support from the CS Departmental Advisory Committee, the Department organizes a Professional Mentorship Programme, which provides an opportunity for CS students to understand the business environment and different areas in IT industry, enhance their soft skills and interact with senior IT professionals. The programme is well received by both mentors and mentees. Students in general feel that they are benefited from the programme and have learnt from their interactions with mentors.
Research Mentorship Scheme (RMS)
To motivate students to strive for excellence, the Department organizes the Research Mentoring Scheme where outstanding undergraduate students are assigned experienced faculty members as their mentors and join the research work of academic staff. Students are also encouraged to develop their research discovery into tangible outcomes such as publication of conference papers.
