MIM Interview Experience-3

Being shortlisted for an interview at HKUST pleasantly surprised me. The interviewers conducted a thorough discussion, focusing not only on my academic achievements but also on my personal and professional experiences. 

They wanted to know how I could bring a unique perspective to the program and contribute to the university’s vibrant community. The questions were thought-provoking, touching on my future aspirations, how I handle challenges, and my awareness of global issues. 

It was evident that HKUST values applicants who are not only academically competent but also bring a holistic view to their academic community.

Questions asked by the interview panel during my interview:

  1. Share an experience from your academic or professional background that showcases your adaptability.
  2. Discuss a recent technological advancement in your field of study that you find intriguing.
  3. In what ways do you think cultural diversity enhances the academic environment, and how would you contribute to it?
  4. How do you see the program at HKUST preparing you for the evolving demands of your chosen industry?
  5.  Imagine you’re tasked with organizing a team of experts from various fields to design a spaceship for intergalactic travel. How would you ensure that the communication flows seamlessly among team members with diverse expertise and backgrounds, including scientists, engineers, and creative artists?
  6. Then they asked me if I had any questions for them which I did. I’d advise you to ask some genuine questions here that you’re actually curious about, not just something boring to fill the room. Doesn’t give away a great impression so use this opportunity well. 

Hope this was helpful!

MIM Interview Experience-5

My interview was honestly quite interesting, engaging, and fun. I did not feel nervous at all. Anyway, without wasting any more time, here are the questions they posed:

  1. Can you walk me through your resume, starting from your academic background and moving on to your professional experiences?
  2. If you could have dinner with any historical figure, who would it be and why?
  3. Tell me about a project or task where you had to think outside the box to find a solution.
  4. Tell me about a moment when you had to navigate through a challenging team dynamic. How did you handle it?
  5. Lastly, do you have any questions for me?

There were some more interesting and fun questions but I do not remember them all. No worries, you just need to be confident and treat it as more of an informative and friendly chat rather than a strict so-called interview. That’s what I did, at least and it helped me a great deal. So, all the best, and go crack that interview!
