Student Profile(s)

Jose Carlos Leal Coelho Pimenta

Master of Science (MSc) in Aeronautical Engineering (AE) at HKUST has been a truly amazing experience, from an academic, professional and individual standpoint.

During my time at HKUST, I had the opportunity to develop my engineering skills and further broaden my knowledge on topics that I am truly passionate about. Courses were delivered by incredible lecturers whose knowledge and feedback allowed us to gain an in-depth understanding of the topic and appreciate what are the future trends of the industry. Furthermore, students had access to many laboratory equipment including a low-speed wind tunnel, allowing us to enhance our practical skills as well.

Students were offered classes taught by industrial professionals within Hong Kong’s top aviation companies, including Cathay Pacific, HAECO and HAESL, which gave us an idea of what companies were looking for in potential graduates and provided us with the essential skills to enhance our employability.

Hong Kong is also the perfect location for someone to start their career in aviation, given its status as a huge aviation hub connector, creating thousands of job opportunities within the field ranging from Aircraft MRO (Maintenance Repair and Overhaul), Air Traffic Systems and Aircraft Operations.

On an individual level, HKUST creates an ideal multi-cultural and international ambience, where students engage with people from all over the world, perfect for someone who wants to broaden their horizon, exchange new ideas and forge new friendships and further their professional network. As an international student, I always felt welcome and very well integrated within the student body.

I would like to conclude that HKUST MSc(AE) was the right choice since it gave me the tools and the connections to secure employment at a highly prestigious company within Hong Kong’s aviation industry.
