Collaborative PhD Training Programme Info Session with EIT

20 Apr 2022

Around 20 potential supervisors met prospective students of the PolyU Collaborative PhD Training Programme with EIT.

How do we enjoy cross-border research and personal development brought by the best of both worlds? A group of prospective and current students of the Collaborative PhD Training Programme probably knew the answer after attending the info session co-hosted by PolyU and the Eastern Institute of Technology (tentative, named as EIT hereby) on 20 April 2022.

The Collaborative PhD Training Programme of PolyU with EIT offers a collaborative research opportunity in Hong Kong and Ningbo in science, engineering, information technology and business. PhD students would spend two years with a supervisor at PolyU and EIT each. Eventually, they may obtain a PhD degree from PolyU and a certificate of completion from EIT.

In the info session, the institution's objectives and positioning were demonstrated by the Provost and Executive Vice President of EIT, Professor Zhang Dongxiao, with a roadmap to attain iconic recognition in its specialised disciplines. Vice President, Professor Chunmiao Zheng, also shared attractive student testimonials and motivation to join the programme.

Dean of Graduate School, Professor Jiannong Cao, as the representative of PolyU illustrated the aim and aspiration of PhD studies, research facilities and the nearby environment of the University. He also presented PolyU’s research excellence through worldwide university rankings. Around 20 invited supervisors from both institutions moved on to introduce their research background and expertise.

The session did not end here but with a Q&A session between potential supervisors and student participants. Some students expressed interest in the research methodology of AI and admissions. To wrap the session up, a current student from the Southern University of Science and Technology, who joined the collaborative training programme, shared her eye-widening experience at PolyU with fellow participants to leave a lively impression.
