“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 in Computer Science and Engineering
Dual Degree Program between HKUST and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology

“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.” 

Matteo CASSANELLO

Matteo CASSANELLO (Italy)  

MPhil in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering 
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.”
