Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellow at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany

“It was my great honor to spend my PhD study at HKUST, where I have seen the most professional research environments, supportive research teams, and splendid campus scenery. In particular, I had been very lucky to have my supervisors and advisors not only providing guidance for my research without reservation, but also giving me freedom to achieve a work-life balance. I would never forget the days spent in the academic building, the beautiful sea view seen from the library, as well as the time spent together with my friends in Hong Kong.”

PhD (CSE) graduate; HKPFS Awardee 2013-14; Winner of the School of Engineering PhD Research Excellence Award 2017-18 

Postdoc Research Associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the U.S. 

“My four years of PhD study at UST turned out to be greatly enjoyable and fruitful, thanks to the immense support from my supervisor, the vibrant research environment at UST, and all the help from my friends. With the support from HKUST and HKPF, I had the opportunities of travelling to conferences to present my work and visiting different overseas universities to conduct research. In the process, I got to build up connections with friends and colleagues from around the world and I kept being inspired by them. Looking back, those years at HKUST prepared me very well, both mentally and technically, for the next stage of my career after my graduation, and they will continue to guide me along the way in the future.”

A wide variety of scholarships not only guarantee my daily subsistence but also help me go further to attend all kinds of international activities.

“Studying in a foreign environment changes your life. You have the opportunities to work with leading researchers in the world. These opportunities help you gain practical experiences with experts in different fields. Besides professional development, you may enjoy the cultural differences. This dual-degree program is a rare opportunity that you do not want to miss.”

MPhil (CBME) student participant in the dual-degree program between HKUST and Politecnico di Milano  

“It has been an amazing experience and a great opportunity for me to broaden my horizons and grow both professionally and as a person. In particular, I think that the possibility to challenge myself in a multicultural, multi-ethnic and multidisciplinary environment has had great benefits in that I started looking at things from a different perspective, embracing new points of view and ultimately becoming a more all-round person.”
