HKUST has provided a lot of support during my study, such as advice and teaching given by professional and highly experienced professors, excellent laboratory equipment and facilities that are rare and expensive. I believe no other place can provide such kinds of rich resources. Moreover, the lectures given by the ENAC faculty from France explained the real and practical situations of aviation in the world.
