I decided to study here in Taiwan because Taiwan is known for their technology and it prioritizes the excellence of research. Also, as I viewed in the statistics, Taiwanese people are the friendliest and very hospitable.
I am studying MS Electrical Engineering. The focus of my study is on Intelligent System in Power Engineering. It involves the intelligent computations used in solving Power Engineering Problems. I take some Chinese classes during my stay here in CYCU. I have enjoyed most of my studies by having friends from locals and other international students.
Studying here in Taiwan is totally different compared to my school before in the Philippines. The teachers are good and well-known around the world. That is why the teaching quality is good. Regarding the environment, it is great for studying. The ambiance around is good compared to my school before because there are certain places that have plants and trees where the students can enjoy the good weather (if it is good) and can relax. About the school equipment, laboratories and facilities, the school has better things to offer like better equipment, laboratory and time allotment compared to my school before.
The most difficult part about applying to study in Taiwan is when I need to leave my family and live alone here. I overcome this difficulty by having many friends from locals, Filipinos and other international students and make my laboratory adviser and laboratory mates as my second family.
I would like to stay here in Taiwan and land for a good job. I want to stay here because of the environment is good and the people are friendly. The lifestyle here is good and cheap compared to other countries.
I think studying in Taiwan can benefit me in the future career by having additional knowledge and language learned. It also helped to adopt the culture of the locals and other international students so that if I stayed here or go to other countries, I know already the Do’s and Don’ts.
I see having good research-based school as one of the key achievements when studying in Taiwan. Also, one of the key achievements is having a good research adviser.
Be brave to choose the road less traveled and study hard. Make time to experience Taiwan.
