Established in 1963, CUHK was formed through the alliance of three of its would-be-constituent colleges. The Hong Kong government intended to build a new university that used Chinese as the teaching language in 1959. This led to the development of CUHK, which originally had three faculties that specialized in science, social science, and art. In 1966, it opened the first graduate school in Hong Kong.
As of 2020, CUHK welcomes over 21,000 students and 8,100 teaching staff. It is associated with a Nobel laureate, a Fields Medalist, a Turing Award winner, 21 State National Science Award winners, and 33 IEEE fellows, among many others. The university also maintains over 280 exchange partnerships with universities from 36 countries.
CUHK aims to enhance the knowledge base and well-being of Hong Kong citizens through public service, teaching, and research. It also intends to be globally recognized as a first-rate research university.
