    港科大、丹麦科技、挪威科技、还是乌普萨拉?

    目前收到的offer有港科大(化学与生物工程)http://prog-crs.ust.hk/pgprog/2019-20/MSc-CBME

    丹麦科技(sustainable energy-能源转化与储存方向)https://www.dtu.dk/english/education/msc/programmes/sustainable_energy#study-programme__study-lines__energyconversionandstorage

    乌普萨拉(renewable energy)http://www.uu.se/en/admissions/master/selma/program/?pInr=KEFE&pKod=TKE2M&lasar=19%2F20

    挪威科技(材料科学-能源方向)https://www.ntnu.edu/studies/msmt/materials-for-energy-technology

    觉得北欧学校学习方向更符合我想学的内容,时间也比较长,可以充分考虑就业还是继续科研,并且新能源行业发展较好,大平台和机会多,如果能在那工作几年再回国再好不过,不过那边找工作并不容易。半年内找不到工作只能回国。而欧洲的学校在国内知名度并不是很高,前辈说直接回来会比较劣势。除了时间成本,两年花销起码50万,经济压力比较大(除挪威不用学费)。

    香港就是一年,大概花费25万,内地招聘会之类的机会比较多,但是一年可能就只能抓紧学完课程然后找工作,也没有实习机会,想做科研项目出成果也比较困难(时间太短)。不知道现在港校回内地的就业水平和HR青睐成都到底怎么样?

    请老师给些建议谢谢!

    Hi,

    Congratulations! All the four programs are great, and I assume you have strong credentials evidenced in your application portfolio.

    It is very difficult to select one program while declining the other three, but first of all forget the factor of job placement. Graduating from each of the programs, you should be able to find a job locally.

    I would first give up The University of Science and Technology of Hong Kong. This doesn’t mean that the program is not a good one. There are two reasons: 1. You are from China, so it is in your best interest to pursue further studies/research in a non-Asian academic/research environment. 2. Most matriculated students are Chinese, so you will have limited opportunities to do research with the best professors.

    Out of the other three programs, which are all exceptional, I recommend Uppsala University. In this prestigious engineering institution, you will have ample opportunity to work with world-acclaimed research groups on frontier research projects, which can translate into potential doctoral studies and job placement in a global context.

    Best wishes,

    Lin Qiu

    Originally, I wanted to go to UU most, but I may have to give up due to economic reasons. In the case of NTNU or HKUST, what is your suggestion?

    As for HKUST, you said that “This doesn’t mean that the program is not a good one “. So what are the possible merits of the program of HKUST? What do you think maybe a good choice after graduation from HK? And in the limited one year of MSc in HK, what preparation do you suggest to do?

    August 19, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    It is too early to give up UU. You may talk to the Department directly and tell them you have been accepted by other programs (list all of them). Ask the Department if you are able to obtain kind of assistantship (TA, RA, PA) to minimize your tuition/living costs. Tell them your credentials/background that make you a good match for TA/RA/PA work.

    At the same time, contact professors/project groups for possible funding. Tell them you have been admitted by UU.

    Lastly, even you fail to procure funding prior to matriculation later this summer, I still suggest you to attend UU. I DON’T think that you won’t be funded in the 2nd semester or during the 2nd year.

    It is too early to think of other programs for now.

    Good luck,

    Lin Qiu
