CLP Holdings Limited
Across different overseas exchange and internship experiences, I must count the internship I had at CLP Power Hong Kong Limited and General Electric Aviation in Shanghai. The invaluable experiences have deepened my understanding of scientific research, enhanced my soft skills, and explored my interest before determining my career path. I was also inspired to work on my final year project, and my thesis was awarded by the Hong Kong Institute of Engineers. Recalling my HKUST early days, I was glad to have professors’ support and willingness to share their insight on future development in the industry, which enlightened us to think critically and multidimensionally. The academic ambience was the most enjoyable and enriching one I had. Now I have work-study life with my part-time master back in HKUST MAE. Moving forward, I will continue to pursue professional chartership for a brighter future on my career path.
BEng MECH (2014)
Being an avid aviation enthusiast, I found my sense of belonging in this university. HKUST not only has experienced professors and teaching staff, but also offers unlimited opportunities to students with passion in this field. As international exposure is conductive to students’ career development, HKUST endeavors to provide a blend of overseas exchange and internship opportunities for students to broaden their horizon. I was fortunate enough to intern at Boeing and Cathay Pacific during my school time. These internships fortified my aviation interest and laid a solid foundation for my career.

Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong Limited
Like most the students when they first get into the School of Engineering, I was not clear about my career direction. Thankfully, the School of Engineering provides plenty of resources for students to explore their interests and achieve what they imagine. In particular, the MAE department encourages students to participate in different competitions to gain hands-on experience and foster their entrepreneurial spirit.
Being a member of the HKUST Robotics team, I collaborated with multidisciplinary students to design and build a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) for an international competition. This experience helped me build up the technical skills necessary for a mechanical engineer and sharpened my communication skills in a team environment. With my experience at HKUST, I would like to encourage students to step out of their comfort zone and seize every opportunity to make a difference.
BEng AE (2021)
Graduate Trainee (Generalist)
Since graduating from HKUST, I joined HAECO on their Graduate Trainee Programme (2021). I started my job rotation within the company, in which I gain exposure to various departments, ranging from engineering to business functions. It gives me a big picture of how the MRO business works.
My time in HKUST definitely had a significant influence on my career development. Apart from technical knowledge, the BEng Aerospace Engineering degree has sharpened my critical thinking skills and teamwork. By conducting engineering projects, we designed experiments from scratch and made use of different analyzing techniques. I learned how a team collaborates effectively and works towards a common goal. I was glad to be one of the peer mentors in the Engineering School as well. It helped to grow my skills and gave me new perspectives on my life and career.

China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Limited
Studying in MAE at HKUST was a meaningful experience. During the undergraduate period, we not only learn more about academic knowledge but also let us have an international view and broaden our horizons more. In 2018, it is my pleasure to have the opportunity to join the two times exchange which is going to Tsinghua University and National University of Singapore. We can learn how to be passionate and outgoing people, easy to escape our comfort zone and adapt to a new environment. Also, HKUST Co-op program can let us gain more working experience and understand the whole picture of the industry to prepare for our career path. After graduation, I work in China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Limited for cultural construction and epidemic prevention projects related to society. It let me know engineering is not only the job, but also the mission which contributes to society.
