“As an avid aviation enthusiast, I found a sense of belonging at HKUST. The University not only has experienced professors and teaching staff; it also offers unlimited opportunities to students with a passion for their fields. As international exposure is conducive to students’ career development, HKUST endeavors to provide a blend of overseas exchange and internship opportunities to broaden students’ horizons. I was fortunate enough to intern at Boeing and Cathay Pacific while studying at HKUST. These internships fortified my interest in aviation and laid a solid foundation for my career. HKUST trains students to be adaptable and flexible enough to meet the needs of an uncertain future. I hope that you will all find your path to success during your wonderful university lives at HKUST.”
