Speakers: HKU-CS Department Research Postgraduate Committee


This seminar should be of interest for all HKU students interested in Research Postgraduate studies in Computer Science. The faculty members of HKU CS include many internationally renowned scholars in diverse fields of Computer Science, such as Algorithms, Bioinformatics, Computer Forensics, Information Security, Computer Vision and Graphics, Human-Computer Interaction, Database and Data Mining, Network, Programming Languages, Systems, and Quantum Computing.

The Department of Computer Science at HKU offers two research postgraduate degrees: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil). A PhD is a 4-year research degree, whereas an MPhil is a 2 years research Master. In both programs students work with a faculty member from the department in research projects and publish results in top Computer Science venues. There are several fully funded positions for students wishing to pursue a PhD or MPhil at HKU.

In this seminar we will give an overview of postgraduate studies at HKU, how to apply for graduate studies at HKU and funding possibilities. Regarding funding, we will introduce several scholarships that are available for Hong Kong and HKU students. In particular we will present HKU’s University Postgraduate Fellowships (UPF), and the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPF) and the newly launched HKU Presidential scholarships. We will also introduce the tuition waiver for Local Research Postgraduate (RPg) Students.
