HOU Wenyue, Class of 2014
Laboratory Teacher
School of Food and Bioengineering, Xihua University, China

Time flies, as Professor Wang always mentioned in the Marine Ecotoxicology classes.  I have gained much more than just knowledge and practical experience in the past year at HKUST. To all the faculty members, thank you for all the great effort you put in teaching and your valuable advice on my career development. I also feel very lucky to have a supportive group of friends from the EHS program. They always gave me useful suggestions on academic studies and they even taught me how to swim. I enjoyed the time spent with them, it was full of happiness. Now I am so fortunate to be working in my hometown as a teacher. When I give lectures to my students, I will always remember how I was mentored at HUKST.

LEUNG Ho Him (Christopher), Class of 2014
Assistant Environmental Engineer
Sembawang-Leader Joint Venture

I obtained my bachelor degree outside Hong Kong, I didn't know much information about my career pathway in Hong Kong. In this master programme, I have met some experienced classmates and friendly lecturers, they were more than willing to spend their time and share their invaluable working experience and opinions with me. Besides, the lecturers invited some officers from government departments in career talk, which was a really good chance for us to learn from them. In other words, this programme didn't provide us learning materials only, I have also gained some thoughts about my future, they are always ones of my important mentors. 

ZHANG Jingheng, Class of 2014
Research Assistant

By taking the MSc course, Environmental Health and Safety, I reap the benefit of acquiring more knowledge, both theoretical and practical, related to our ambient environment and human health. For example, case analyses of air and water pollution encourage me to know more about the science behind the news of environmental pollution and keep myself in a healthy surrounding to some extend. As for my career, EHS provides  good opportunities by offering advanced views towards environmental researches and field trip, such as sewage treatment plant, so that we can achieve more favorable experiences to jobs related to environment.

Memories will stay in my heart forever!

Ticketing Service Supervisor

Through the HKUST - EHS Program it had helped me to get a much more in-depth understanding of the environment in relationship to disease, health and safety. Having worked in the airline industry for 20 years, I never knew aircraft has emitted nerve gas and its impact on human health receives great attention recently. My heartfelt thanks to all the professors, teaching faculty and staff who made this successful one-year program a valuable and memorable experience in my life.
