Welcome Message from Vice-President

I am delighted that you are interested in joining us at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) on our beautiful seascape campus. A research-intensive university established only in 1991, HKUST is already well–renowned within the international academic community for its rapid ascension to global significance, its consistently high rankings in a wide range of disciplines, and its high quality research.

Training postgraduate students has been part of our core mission from the outset. Over the past two decades, 20,000 master’s and doctoral graduates have been trained, mentored, and inspired by our world-class international faculty to successful careers. Our MSc, MA, MPhil, and PhD program offerings cover a wide range of fields in science, engineering, business and management, and humanities and social science. Our program curricula are designed to build in-depth knowledge and develop critical skills that can address the requirements of industry and society, while enhancing economic and social development in Hong Kong, the region, and beyond.

Understanding the needs of a global workplace, all of our postgraduate programs are focused on delivering an international experience, which include exchange programs and research collaborative opportunities with our many international and Mainland partner institutions. Furthermore, HKUST’s success in the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme serves as recognition of the University’s ability to attract the world’s best minds. To ensure well-rounded development, training in essential areas such as ethics, entrepreneurship, and communication is also provided.

In addition to our strong respect for academic freedom, HKUST is also committed to tackling the grand challenges of our generation – energy, sustainable development, climate change, urbanization, and aging, among them – in one of the most exciting and rapidly-changing regions of the world. Our goal is to develop innovative technologies and solutions, and disseminate the knowledge to the wider community, to advance the health and well-being of society.

I welcome you to learn more about our programs and how HKUST can serve as an important stepping stone to your future career success, and I look forward to seeing you on campus soon.

Vice-President for Research & Graduate Studies
