Studying telecommunications at HKUST is the best choice for me after working for a few years. The courses provided me with a comprehensive understanding of wireless communication. The professors in the program are world-class and their expertise in various areas of telecommunications is truly impressive. I found that the classes were always engaging and never dull, especially with Prof. Khaled B. Letaief. We also have the chance to complete an independent project. It allowed us to apply the theories we learned in the classroom to practical systems and gain a deeper understanding of the research and implementation challenges. Overall, the experience is unforgettable and has truly shaped my career and personal growth.

Studying at HKUST was a correct decision that I made. The academic atmosphere at HKUST is excellent; You can discuss problems with world-renowned professors and study with talented students from all over the world.  You can concentrate on your studies and researches here, and no one else can disturb you except the gorgeous sea view.  Although HKUST is a young university, its reputation is still highly recognized by the industry.  As a Telecommunications graduate, companies are very welcome to our students, providing us many job and internship opportunities.  I benefited a lot from the courses, not only the introduction of relevant principles of 5G, but also the development of 6G and emerging technologies.  It would be an unforgettable learning and life experience for future students and there is no doubt that you would be proud to be a Telecom and HKUST student.

HKUST Telecommunication is definitely a good program for students.  In this program, we are able to learn the whole technology used in telecom industry. Of course, apart from telecom operators, we can apply what we learn in all networking related jobs. In recent years, ICT becomes increasingly popular, some courses also briefly introduce the latest ICT technologies like IoT, smart city, cloud computing, big data and so on. In other words, HKUST Telecommunication teaches something which is very closely related to our job. For the final year project, there are tens of thousands of topics we could choose from, and we absolutely could pick a topic which is fit to our job or interests.

Telecommunication is a broad field of study. Courses in the MSc in Telecommunication program in HKUST are well designed and provided us a full picture on how information is exchanged between communication parties. The passionate professors here are confident in their specialist knowledge and able to respond to students’ questions clearly. Since they used case studies to deliver knowledge, the abstract and complex ideas could be explained effectively. Through different course projects, we could also gain some hands-on experiences by researching, programming and presenting. This MSc program has equipped me with the important knowledge of underlying communication technologies to deal with IoT related engineering problems. It is absolutely worth to study here no matter you are developing your interests in telecom industry or even other fields in IT industry.

It’s no exaggeration that this 1-year Telecom MSc experience is more meaningful than my 4-year undergraduate experience. After I have finished this program, I realize the true meaning of learning is not only to become a HKUST MSc(Telecom) student, but also having the lectures given by such good professors like Prof. Vincent Lau and Prof. Khaled B. Letaief. It is pleasure and not pressure.

Telecom is an interesting program that provides me a chance to understand more cellular network, signal processing and things about telecommunications.

Thanks to Telecom for providing such a special experience on both studies and work.

I believe HKUST is a marvellous choice, if you are looking for world-class technical education with a strong emphasis on innovation, teamwork and research. The workload is considerable, and the reward too likewise if you are ready to commit yourself to your goals.
