Founded in 1991, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is a young, dynamic and internationally-oriented research university offering undergraduate and postgraduate programs in Science, Engineering, Business and Management, Humanities and Social Science, and a selection of interdisciplinary programs. The medium of instruction is English.

Since its establishment, HKUST's core mission is to pursue excellence in both education and research. This has driven the University forward to cutting-edge achievements and breakthroughs that advance economic and social development in Hong Kong and beyond. As a student of HKUST, you will not only join an institute of learning, but also a world-class intellectual hub that provides you with the knowledge, professional standards and global awareness that will open up a multitude of opportunities in the future.

Our carefully chosen areas of expertise in science, engineering, and business and management, enhanced by humanities and social science, anticipated the key areas that would provide the insight and leadership to tackle the grand challenges of the 21st century. At the heart of our pursuit of excellence is our uncompromising effort to hire the best faculty locally and internationally.

In addition to the strong and discipline-based programs, we offer interdisciplinary opportunities and double major and minor programs making it possible to explore different capabilities, opening the way to critical thinking, and lifelong intellectual curiosity as part of our all-round education.

100% of our faculty is doctorate holders, mostly from leading institutions around the globe. From life science and telecommunications to business, our academics set their sights high, working in areas that will have major impacts on people’s lives and constantly seeking to make their mark locally, nationally and globally.

Their success at turning HKUST into a hub of intellectual achievement helps attract not only the top global talents among faculty, but also first-rate students who will become the inventors and discoverers of the decades ahead.

Our internationally oriented campus community and a host of co-curricular activities help to develop soft skills, values and character. That’s why the innovative spirit thrives at HKUST.
