Why HKUST Engineering
An optimal place to learn from and work with the most dynamic force in research
Skyrocketing Success
HKUST might have young shoulders, but on it we put a wise head. In such a short yet fruitful time span, remarkable accomplishments including advances in academic reputation have brought the up-and-coming School of Engineering to the fore among other promising universities and even top-notch powerhouses around the globe.
Global Vision
Our multicultural campus that promotes diversity is ideal for exchange of excellent ideas and inter-cultural communication. In this cradle of engineering talents representing more than 40 nationalities, you are prepared to thrive not just in the academic community but also the increasingly diverse global society.
Hub of Asia
Welcoming the rise of Asia, the world’s fastest growing economy, HKUST has ventured into the Greater Bay Area and beyond. As the new Guangzhou campus is complemented by other Mainland platforms in Nansha, Shenzhen and Foshan, the geographical advantage of being in the hub of Asia has been elevated to further harness research opportunities in engineering and technological development.
Abundant Support
Strong infrastructural support is key to research excellence. From State Key Labs, National Research Centers and central research facilities to research institutes and industry joint labs, you can utilize state-of-the-art facilities and comprehensive support to take your research efforts to the next level.
