AFLSP provided me with great awareness of contemporary cultural issues. With generous funding from HKUST and AFLSP programs, I was able to explore my research topic without worrying too much.

At HKUST, I have the privilege to work with world-class faculty on projects that pique my interest, while enjoying state-of-the-art research facilities. My labmates with diverse backgrounds have also helped me improve academically and personally.


After graduating from HKUST, Issac has begun on his entrepreneurial journey by co-founding AutoSafe, an artificial intelligence solutions company. When he worked as a civil engineer before his MPhil studies, a small mishap has sparked his vision in developing an innovative system for monitoring safety hazards. This innovation won his team the title of champion in the 2022 HKUST-Sino One Million Dollar Entrepreneurship Competition and the awardee of the Lo Kwee Seong TECH-Ship Fund and the Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities.

Like a fertile land, HKUST is resourceful and offers abundant opportunities for all to grow. Because of such convenience and chances given, I can play multiple roles during my research postgraduate studies. That makes my research student life in HKUST exciting and fruitful. There are also research centers and facilities that support my research performance and train me with the soft and hard skills to become an all-rounded researcher. To that, I am especially thankful for the services offered from language center that help tightening the screws in my writing and presentation skills.

As a graduate of BEng and PhD and now a faculty member of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, I have found HKUST a great place for postgraduate studies.


My graduate studies at HKUST taught me how to conduct world-class quality research. I gained a very strong technical foundation, and after years of hard work, I felt that I was personally resilient. I wouldn’t give up easily. I gained confidence. It also gave me the opportunity to travel around the world, work in different places, cooperate with and also compete with the best. I am always proud to be from HKUST, and after all these experiences, I feel very grateful to come back and contribute to my alma mater!
