1) What will you study in the United States? (你将在意大利学习什么?)
I will study for my Ph.D degree in Electric and Computer Engineering in Auburn University.
2) What is your major? In what aspect of your major will you study?(你的专业是什么?你准备修什么方面的专业?)
What's your favorite subject? My major of undergraduate study in ZhongShan university is Computational Science and my major of Ms' degree in Peking University is Computer Engineering. My specified field of study is Video and Image Processing.
3) What will you do in ITA? / Are you going to study in ITA?(你准备在意大利做什么?/你准备在意大利学习吗?)
I will study for my Ph.D degree in Electric and Computer Engineering in Auburn University. I plan to finish my study in about 4 years and then come back to china.
4)Why not continue your studies in China?(为什么你不继续在中国学习呢?)
Because my career goals are to become a senior executive in a 5-star hotel within 5 years and set up my own hotel within 10 years. In order to achieve these goals， I need advanced and professional knowledge in Hospitality Management. The US can provide the best opportunity for me to get what I need.
You know， there is still a gap between Chinese educational level and the American's. The US has the best educational recourses and models in the world， and the American education combines practical experience with classroom theory while the Chinese education focuses more on theory.
Moreover， hospitality industry is highly developed in America. So I can learn the latest information about hospitality management to enrich my knowledge.
5) When/where did you get your BS/MS?(什么时候/在哪里你拿到理学学士学位/硕士学位?)
I got my Bachelor's degree in Computational Science in 2006 from ZhongShan university. I got my Master's degree in Computer Engineering in 2010 from Peking University.
6) What/where are you studying now? (你现在在哪里学习?)
I'm unemployed now. I quited my job in October this year.
7) How long will you study in USA? (你将在意大利学习多久?)
About 4 years. If I wok hard i can get my PHD within a shorter time.
8) Have you received any scholarship?(你拿到什么奖学金吗?)
I did apply for scholarship but I don't know the result yet. Since my advisor told me scholarships will not be processed until after the start of the semester. But even if I didn't get.
9) Why you don't receive financial aid from this Univ.? (你为什么从学校获得了助学金?)
No， the competition in Electric Engineering is very fierce and the budget for international students who want to enroll in Spring semester is limited， so I didn't get any scholarship.
10) What do you do with your work for PhD? (你为你的博士学位做了什么)
I will take courses， teaching， do research， and finish my thesis in the area of image processing to get my Ph.d in Electric Engineering in 4 years.
11) What is your purpose for the visa? (你的签证目的是什么)
I need a F-1 visa in order to study for my Ph.D degree in Electric and Computer Engineering in Auburn University. I plan to finish my study in about 4 years and then come back to china.
12) What is your academic background? (你的学术背景是什么)
I got my bachelor's degree in Computational Science in 2006 from ZhongShan University and got my MS's degree in Software Engineering in 2010 from Peking e processing is my favorite research field， I have published several papers and a book on this field and I also have two years working experience on that.
13) How do you know this Univ.? (你怎么知道这所大学的?)
I searched the Ranking of University in Electric Engineering on line and read the schools among the top 100 lists， visited their website to get familiar with their faculty and research. I found there are 7 professors in Electric department in Auburn University whose research interest includes image processing， very many， then I decide to apply for this University.
14) What is your plan? What will you do after graduation? (你有什么计划?毕业后准备做什么?)
I will specialize in Image Processing and finish my Ph.D study in Electric Engineering in Auburn University in about 4 I will come back to China and find a position in an University. My desired work place is ShenZhen， I'm going to join ShenZhen University to be a professor in Electric Engineering.
15) Give me three reasons that you will come back to China? (给我三个你会回中国的理由)
First of all， I'm the only child of my parents. I have to come back and take care of my parents since they will become older and weaker as time goes by. The attachment to family is very strong for our Chinese people. Secondly， as you can see， I applied for a PH.D program instead of M.S. program. As far as I know， and probably as you know， Ph.D holders in the States are not so easy to find good jobs as Ms holders even in the same discipline. If I intended to find a job and stay in the states， I would not have applied for Ph.D. but MS program. And Ph.D will take much more time， without the real interest， who would pay so much time and energy to chase a Ph.D degree? Finally， it will be very easy for me to find a good job in any of the big cities in china with my Ph.D in Electric Engineering got in the United States. My career objective determines that it is a better choice for me to come back to China than staying in the states. You see my long range objective is to become a professor and it would be very difficult for me to realize it should I choose to stay in the states， for the United States is a highly developed county， the competition to get a position in University is too fierce. On the contrary， if I come back to china， I have much better opportunity. Since china is underdeveloped， it leaves much more space for people， so it is much more practical for me to get a teaching position in a Chinese University.
