The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

About US

Since its official opening in October 1991, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has established itself as an intellectual powerhouse, energizing the community's transformation into a knowledge-based society, and securing a place on the academic world map in record-breaking time. An innovator in research and teaching, HKUST is the only science and technology research university in Hong Kong, and the only one to offer an all-PhD faculty. Its groundbreaking work in science, engineering, business, humanities and social science is successfully pushing back the boundaries of the information age. Such advances are assisted by the University's top-class facilities. Nationally, alliances with Mainland universities and collaborative work with municipal governments are setting the pace for future cooperative efforts. Globally, connections with leading institutions are actively pursued through academic partnerships with the world's top universities, and memberships in such organizations as the Association of East Asian Research Universities and Association of Pacific Rim Universities.
