Joint UB-HIT Master: A Survey of Graduate Students

Part of the Progress in IS book series (PROIS)


The joint master program between Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) in China and University of Bordeaux (UB) in France has lasted for 9 years. More than 100 students have graduated since 2006. This paper tentatively presents a survey of graduate students (98.0 % students covered). The main purpose of this survey is to evaluate the employment situation of those students after graduation, to detect the requirement of the human resource in IT area and provide some trends and reference for the future candidates. The results retrieved are sorted using some criteria and are analysed.
