As a globally-oriented university, we are committed to fostering academic originality, innovative spirit, open-mindedness, and a can-do attitude.
Established in 1991, our University strives to nurture a diverse and conducive culture to help all our members develop their talents and achieve their aspirations. HKUST is a leading institution in education and creation of new knowledge and, based on this foundation, offers innovative approaches to help address critical issues challenging Hong Kong, the region and beyond.
We are fortunate to have excellent and dedicated faculty, students and staff. Our University is widely regarded as among the best in the world, thanks in no small part to multiple measures gauging the outcome of our education, research and societal contributions. We are mindful of linking academic endeavors to societal challenges in both local and global contexts.
