Game designing is my preferred area of specialization among the many diverse, varied fields in computer science and engineering. In particular, the aspect of artificial intelligence, which is crucial to simulating real-life scenarios and other situations in computer games is what I believe, has an aesthetic element to it. To date, I have already written several easy, elegant computer games, and I hope to design and build my own game some day. It is for all these reasons that I wish to take up programming and game designing as a career interest.
In addition to my academic activities at my university in China, I have also been a part of various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. In my spare time, I enjoy taking part in sports, especially basketball. I was the member of basketball teams in my middle and high school, and more than the fact that I’ve won several accolades for the team and the school as its student, I enjoy the competition, and love working with a team.
As a part of my extra-curricular endeavours, I have gained valuable experience in teaching and tutoring. I have been a home tutor to help junior high school students in mathematics. The experience has not only boosted my communicative abilities but has also made me more conscientious and sensible towards my friends, peers and fellow students. I believe that such an attitude is essential for the right temperament, since research inadvertently involves individual as well as team efforts. As an individual and as a team player, I have found it an enriching experience to discuss my work with peers.
To date I have spent half a year in a Chinese university; however, I am pursuing a foundation course at St. Andrews. There are several reasons for my choosing to study in the UK instead of finishing my studies at the university in China. The most significant reason is that I like the country, the culture and history of the UK I respect the distinctions between various cultures, and I have personally come to experience the all-assimilating culture at the universities in the UK.
