Student Profile

Chenxi Qi

Graduated in 2020

"I graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering from Tianjin University of Technology (China) in 2019 with one-year study-abroad experiences in Finland and Poland. I chose to study for my masters in UCD as it is the top place to study for chemical engineering in Ireland, according to the QS World University Rankings by subject. In addition, lots of chemical and pharmaceutical companies are based in Ireland, which provide a wide range of career opportunities. During my time of study at UCD, the courses used innovative ways of teaching. Some specialists in the chemical industries were invited to give lectures and guide my group projects. Even with COVID-19, the courses made the complete transition to online teaching quite well. Also, administrative staff were extremely friendly and helpful, such as keeping students updated of new career opportunities. Moreover, the university had a lot of social activities which help students to relax after classes. So, I believe UCD is certainly the best university to enjoy both study and social life."
