I have to one select among the three universities for MS in Electrical Power Engineering

  1. North China Electric Power University (NCEPU)
  2. Xi’an Jiao Tong University (XJTU)
  3. Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU)

Shanghai Jiao Tong University has several joint degree programs as
SJTU-Monash University Dual Degree Program
SJTU-Norwegian University of Science and Technology Double Master degree program and others like these.

Please also provide your valuable suggestion about this especially about joint degree programs of SJTU whether they are good or traditional single university programs?

Thank you.

I have an offer from Shanghai Jiao Tong university fro pursuing my PhD. University’s ranking is fairly good as it stands up at 68th in the world and 23rd in computer science. Now keeping in mind the image Chinese universities have I am confused whether its worth it to have a go at this opportunity. My potential supervisor has decent number of publications and experience but he is not a well known personality in the field and just setting up a new lab. Now I am confused if going for a mid level university in US or a top university in China is a good option in my case.

My background is in Robotics and I did my MS from Korea. My PhD topic is going to be an overlap of machine learning and robotics.

Can someone tell me please how good is research funding of the faculty members in China. I am interested in natural science field. For example, will the 100.000 USD $ per year grant be considered a good funding opportunity. What are the approximate grant size and grant success rate in natural sciences in National Natural Science Foundation of China?

Thanks a lot!

There is a similar question here as well as elsewhere.

However my situation is somewhat different, so please read for marking it as duplicate. The questions I’ve seen asked has been about giving a gift to a supervisor after completing your PhD, and whether that would be innapropriate before/after defending your thesis.

In my case, I had a lot of difficulty finding someone willing to support my application (as I’m doing it in a completely foreign country). I’m very grateful to my supervisor for being willing to take me on and supporting my application.

I was thinking of bringing him some chocolate from my country (which is very popular here and abroad) as a small thank you gift.

Would this be weird/inappropriate?

I am an M.A student of American Studies,I am wondering of writing a thesis on US-China relation and its impact on Iran’s nuclear deal,but I faced with problem on narrowing down the title,I would be appreciate if sb help me of the new and recent perspectives on this issue that I can focus on them and develop my thesis,such as the new theories on nuclear diplomacy,the recent fields and capabilities in Sino-US relations that worth doing research on.

I am an undergraduate student in China, majoring in chemistry. I am beginning to consider which advisors would be suitable for my future research.

Actually, I have been working in a professor’s lab over a year in my university and I am interested in their research topic. What concerns me is that he recruits many students. He is the only professor in our group with over 10 graduate students, expecting that to increase to 14–16 students next year (depending on whether I join the lab). I hesitate because I can not be sure that he will have time to provide guidance so many students.

How many students are typical for a professor?

I am a former IT (Information Technology) professional from India. I have 5 years of experience in IT.

I am planning to join an MBBS course in China or Russia. I cannot pursue this in India because it very expensive and also there an age limit (candidate has to be less than 25 years).

My main problem is – While studying PUC (Equivalent to A-levels in UK and High School diploma in US) I opted out of Biology. Since I don’t have biology in PUC, I cannot pursue MBBS.

I can remedy this situation by pursuing a distance education course in Biology from NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling).

But I am afraid that Chinese/Russian universities might not accept a distance education course.

Can anyone please let me know if Chinese/Russian universities accept distance education courses for admission.

Thanks in advance.
