HKUST/CSE PG Early Recruiting
Early application site: http://www.cse.ust.hk/pg/admissions/registration/
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is recruiting PhD students to start in Fall 2016. The early admission interviews will be held at Beijing on Sept. 19th, and at Shanghai on Sept. 20th, respectively. We are looking for outstanding undergraduate students as well as graduate students with a Master degree in Computer Science and related areas.
HKUST CSE department has been ranked among the top in various universal rankings in the computer science area. For example, in the recent QS World University Rankings and US News, our department has been selected as one of the top ten worldwide in the Subject of Computer Science and Information Systems. Our department has produced pioneering work in several areas, including but not limited to, artificial intelligence, data and knowledge management, data visualization and visual analytics, networks and distributed systems, software technologies, theoretical computer science and algorithms, and vision and graphics.
Our department consists of over 40 faculty members, about 40 MPhil students, and close to 200 PhD students. The MPhil study takes one to two years, and the PhD study four to five years. Many of our postgraduate alumni work at major IT companies such as Baidu, Alibaba, Facebook, Google, Huawei, IBM, Microsoft, and Tencent, and a significant number of our PhD graduates pursue their careers at research institutes and universities all over the world. If interested, please check out the departmental web page (http://www.cse.ust.hk/pg/ourgraduates/) on where our PhD graduates go.
Postgraduate students have sufficient scholarship support during their study at HKUST. The amount of scholarship is about HKD180,000 (USD23,000) per person per year. The annual tuition of a postgraduate student is about HKD40,000 (USD5,000).The School of Engineering selects excellent postgraduate students to award additional scholarships to cover the tuition.
Starting in 2010, the Hong Kong government selects incoming PhD students to award the prestigious Hong Kong PHD Fellowship (HKPF) each year. The amount of the HKPF is around HKD20,000 (~USD2,500) per month. Additionally, each awardee has a travel allowance of HKD10,000 (~USD1,250) each year for the first three years. In the past four years, our department was awarded around 10 or more HKPFs each year, achieving the highest numbers of awardees among all Computer Science departments in Hong Kong.
Our postgraduate admissions require applicants to have good academic records in their areas of study and to have obtained a Bachelor's degree by the time of their HKUST enrollment. The English language requirement is to provide at least one of the following standard test scores effective at the time of HKUST enrollment: TOEFL(cbt) >= 580, IELTS >= 7 (with all sub-scores >= 5.5), or TOEFL(ibt) >= 92.
We recruit postgraduate students in two phases. The first phase is early recruiting, targeted at excellent PhD applicants through telephone or onsite interviews. To apply, you can fill out the preliminary application form at the departmental website (http://www.cse.ust.hk/pg/admissions/registration/). If you cannot access the departmental early recruiting website, you can download the offline application form through the URL: http://pan.baidu.com/s/1c0vQ4gS, and submit your form and CV to email@example.com. We will process these applications and shortlist candidates to invite for on-site interviews. (Please submit your application as early as possible so that your application can be fully considered by our admission committee).
This year, the early admission interviews are planned to be held on Sept. 19th at Beijing and Sept. 20th at Shanghai. The detailed information will be emailed along with invitation. Applicants will be notified their interview results one to two weeks after their interviews. For those particularly excellent students who are not able to attend the interviews at Beijing or Shanghai, we may also arrange interviews at other cities or conduct interviews via Skype.
If you miss the early admission interviews, you can still submit your application to our department before the start of regular application of the HKUST Postgraduate Admissions (http://pg.ust.hk/admissions).
After the early recruiting phase, applicants can then send regular application packages to the HKUST Postgraduate Admissions.
Finally, we encourage exceptional PhD applicants (top 10% in class, average grade higher than 85/100, excellent English) to contact us to inquire about the HKPF applications. Please find relevant information at the HKUST's HKPFS web site (http://pg.ust.hk/hkpfs/).
