Student Sharing
The year I spent at HKUST is really impressive, I learned a lot of knowledge in electronic engineering, did some wonderful research in Independent Study, and made many new friends who can help each other in both study and life. MSc(ELEG) program really covers many areas, whatever you want, you can definitely find a direction that fits you.

The professors at HKUST were not only knowledgeable but also approachable. They shared a lot of knowledge, not only technical but also personal, and were always willing to share their expertise for my career planning. Some of them acted as mentors for the students, which was a great help in guiding us towards the right career path.
