Above all, the course curriculum helped me to develop sensitivity towards the uncertainties and complexities behind real-world projects, which I felt weren't conveyed to me effectively in the ideal world of the typical engineering lecture.

A Cambridge experience

"The MPhil in Technology Policy programme fully satisfied and in many areas exceeded my expectations in terms of an academic challenge and practical application in my current day-to-day job. Above all, the course curriculum helped me to develop sensitivity towards the uncertainties and complexities behind real-world projects, which I felt weren't conveyed to me effectively in the ideal world of the typical engineering lecture. Besides, I enjoyed the flexibility to study a diverse range of policy and management related subjects, while still having the chance to choose among engineering electives. Finally, I had the chance to meet and work with a great group of people from various professional and academic backgrounds, which further helped me to widen my horizon and extend my network."
