Dr. Minghao Wang

2017 PhD Graduate, Faculty of Engineering, The University of Hong Kong

The Research Assistant Professor, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University


Alumni Sharing Session for Engineering Research Students:

Postgraduate study is important for the PhD candidates to cultivate the fundamental abilities to identify scientific problems and perform research. In view of this, the fresh candidates must plan their four (or three) years’ study with an intentional focus on different areas and skills. Considering the relatively-high independency of postgraduate study, it is challenging for the candidates to achieve a smooth career path with fruitful outputs.

In this talk, several major difficulties and suggestions about the postgraduate study will be discussed!
