Learning in UESTC: Exchange of Excellent International Students’ Experience

published: 2019-03-16 10:28:00       hits: 

INTRODUCTION

Since the inception of accepting International Students’ into University of Electronic Science and Technology of China over the past years, UESTC has ushered in and birthed out brilliant and excellent students but the need to achieve the very goal of what UESTC has become has mostly not been met by most International Students’ despite excelling with good grades during examination.

UESTC, having its focus mainly on research work done and published by its students, has thrived over the years and this has been the motivation for the glamour to have excellent students meet up with other excellent students (as UESTC only ushers in and birth out excellent students), but who lack the motivation to write papers and publish, this is because achieving good grades is not enough.

OPENING REMARKS-MR. LI (DEPUTY DEAN, SCHOOL OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION)

University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), has over the past ten years accepted International Students’ but not just International Students’ but excellent International Students’.

This has been because the job of a University is to be able to drive the capabilities of its students, irrespective of origin, race or colour, and/or language in order for its students  to achieve the goals they’ve set for themselves or been set for them.

it should be noted that the primary task of every student is to learn, driven by his own motivation,a person they admire or has attained what they want to accomplish (mentor.)  

UESTC, being an institute based on research, demands their students to read and learn on a wide and broade scope, enabling students to write a good thesis for publication and also have an exemplary defence of the thesis. 

In spite of the workload UESTC put on their students (both local and international), local students have come to realize the great job done by International Students’ over the years.

The main goal of this seminar was to discuss with International Students’, on how to write better and/or excellent SCI papers, as that has been the pain of most International Students’ over the years.

FIRST SPEAKER-MS. GRACE UGOCHI NNEJI (MASTER STUDENT)

Ms Grace Ugochi Nneji, spoke on the topic, “Academic Mentorship: The Key to Success.”She emphasized on the need for all students irrespective of your level of education (Undergraduate, Masters or PhD.) to all have a mentor, as mentors are the pillars to which mentees (people who are to be mentored) do look up to.

·         Mentors do pull mentees up when they are falling.

·         Mentors help their mentees stay on track when they have given up on the dream to be pursued.

·         They are the driving force of people looking up to them.

·         An effective mentor ought to be such a one, who has;

·         The ability to listen.

·         Have patience.

·         Have time and attention.

·         A “MENTEE” is one that has a mentor who can guide him/her to achieve a successful career goal.

·         In UESTC, one’s mentor can be our;

·         Supervisor.

·         A senior colleague in our field of study.
