Overview

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, or HKUST, is the third academic institution in Hong Kong that was granted a university status. For three consecutive years, HKUST held the number one spot among the universities in Asia based on the regional QS University Rankings. It is also considered as the fastest growing academic institution in the 2019 Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the second most reputable university in Hong Kong. In terms of employment rate, HKUST takes pride in having the highest rating not only among the universities in its territory but also in Greater China.

As a top-tier research institute, HKUST has a total of 52 research centers dedicated to studies in advanced engineering, aerodynamics and acoustics, biosciences, nanosystem fabrication, and more. The academic programs offered cover a wide range of discipline spread across six departments. Among these programs are science, engineering, business management, humanities and social sciences, and others. HKUST does not only concentrate on individual disciplines but it also has a dedicated programs office that oversees the study of multiple fields.

The idea to establish HKUST was conceived by the governor of Hong Kong during the latter part of 1980s. Back then, Hong Kong only had two universities, thus a third one was deemed necessary to meet the growing demand for university graduates who would play vital roles in supporting Hong Kong’s economic and social advancement. The construction began in 1986 and was completed in 1991, three years ahead of its scheduled completion.

From the time HKUST opened in 1991, it took its role of being Hongkong’s leading academic research and information resource seriously. Its library, which is housed in Lee Shau Kee Library, is home to more than 1 million books, nearly 800,000 printed volumes, more than 750,000 electronic files, and thousands of audio, video, and electronic journals. Even during its early years, HKUST’s library already had an advanced Chinese and English online catalog and was the first to roll out the first large-scale CD-ROM network used in Asian academic libraries.

Over the years, HKUST has managed to carry on the vision of its founders as it continues to produce globally competitive graduates and rise through the ranks of renowned academic institutions. Part of this effort is establishing strong affiliations with foreign research organizations to further enhance HKUST’s international presence as it continues to support local growth.
