Research Excellence
The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), conducted by the Hong Kong University Grants Committee (UGC) once every 6 years, seeks to independently assess the research quality of UGC-funded universities according to rigorous international standards. In the latest RAE, the research submissions of all Hong Kong academics were assessed by an international panel of 307 distinguished experts. HKUST topped the institutional assessment with a remarkable 70% of its submissions rated either "world leading" (4 star) or "internationally excellent" (3 star).
