Message from Alumni
The treasure lied not only in the class but also after class. You were encouraged to study certain areas you like in-depth and exchange opinions with professors. Many teachers had working experience, so you did not need to worry about whether the knowledge you learned could be applied to industry.
This programme provided us with not only innovation-driven education to grow and improve ourselves, but also a fully international environment to work with brilliant professors and intelligent students from across the world. I have to say that my postgraduate study at PolyU was really rewarding.
