KAIST Electrical Engineering students have always been interested in studying abroad. However, getting the right information to do so is not easy. Past information may not be accurate anymore and they are different for each country and school. In this 2015 Fall issue of the EE Newsletter, we interviewed a fellow alumnus, Kangwook Lee, who is currently studying at UC Berkeley enrolled in their joint Master’s-Ph.D. program, to ask about his recent experience with living and studying abroad. The interview was conducted in writing due to distance and time difference issues
Pleased to make your acquaintance. Firstly, thank you for accepting this interview. Please introduce yourself.
