RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT

Maintaining research leadership requires us to recruit new faculty proactively, acquire state-of-the-art research equipment, and increase funding support for research — especially in some of the research priorities: nano-science and nano-technology; life science and biotechnology; electronics, wireless and information technology;

environment and sustainable development; energy; and management education and research. We will collaborate with the government in developing science and technology in Hong Kong, while our international and Mainland China partnerships will extend our research base and reach.

5-YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN

A visionary course of action is set to advance HKUST to fresh heights of achievement between 2011 and 2016.

EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT

As Hong Kong restructures its undergraduate education from three to four years, we have seized this opportunity to totally redesign our curriculum starting in 2012. We offer interdisciplinary courses, international academic exchanges, internship opportunities, and a co-op program — all to ensure a holistic development of our students.

FACULTY DEVELOPMENT

Fully 100% of our faculty are doctorate holders, mostly from leading institutions around the globe. We are recruiting close to 100 new and replacement faculty between 2011 and 2016, looking to keep a diverse international mix of motivated high achievers.

INTERNATIONAL AND MAINLAND STRATEGY

Straddling East and West, HKUST is well-connected with Mainland China — both its universities and enterprises, but is academically aligned with the West. Our Fok Ying Tung Graduate School in Nansha, our IER center in Shenzhen, and our Zhejiang Institute for Advanced Materials of HKUST are splendid platforms for building partnerships with enterprises inside China.

We are developing strategic partnerships in major locations with top global universities while aggressively attracting the best international students as well as academics.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Students and faculty are encouraged to reach out to society via our community service programs including the dynamic HKUST Connect and the REDbird Award Program. We are also expanding the reach to our global alumni communities for mentoring and providing support to our students.
