He finally decided on Leeds because of Leeds’ academic reputation – being the Top 100 university in the world, as well as the School’s reputation in Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Qing said, “Besides, the university is highly comprehensive, which I believed would help broaded my horizon in various aspects.”

“Apart from the high quality teaching, the best aspect of the course was the opportunity to work in practical projects in state-of-the art teaching labs with modern first-class equipment, as well as working with innovative group of peers with a range of technical background. Though my course had essential core modules, we also had the opportunity to choose from a range of optional modules which gave us the chance to broaden our study and research in our own interested subject areas.”

“Studying at the University of Leeds has certainly been one of the best learning experience I’ve had in the past years. With the quality of teaching and reputation of the university, I have been able to gained the skills and knowledge to enable me to build my career as an engineer.
