Program: This Summer Camp is a 5-day program for those who are interested in pursuing MPhil or PhD programs in the School of Science at HKUST. Participants will attend a series of informal seminars introducing the postgraduate programs offered and current research topics in division/department. These seminars are intended to foster discussion among the participants and faculty members and to serve as a basis for further social and scientific interactions. Participants will also have opportunities to visit the individual research labs and university research facilities, meeting with professors and fellow postgraduate students, and discuss research topics and others, such as preparing for graduate school. This Summer Camp provides the best opportunity for participants to learn the individual research groups and let the professors to know you and access your ability to conduct research projects in their MPhil or PhD programs.
