And so in his freshman year, he chose to pursue a second major in mechanical engineering, finding arts and beauty in engineering. It was not an easy decision to make, and even more challenging to stick it out. But he was not giving up.
Throughout his college days, a tight schedule became a part of his everyday life, with a wide range of courses covering different subjects to attend.
“I felt lonely and hard at times, but I have no regrets.”
He later joined the research team of Prof. Hu Chuxiong from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, who has been impressed by Shengfan’s great enthusiasm. “He is not just all talk. I believe he will work something out in the future,” says Prof. Hu of Shengfan.
Prof. Hu offered advice and other help as Shengfan prepared for his postgraduate application. Coincidentally, the day Shengfan received his offer was the birthday of the professor. “I am truly happy, and I feel highly hopeful about his future,” says Prof. Hu.
