The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is a government-funded research university based on the Hung Hom area in Hong Kong. Also called PolyU, the university has the largest student body among Hong Kong's public tertiary institutions.
PolyU currently offers undergraduate, postgraduate, and PhD degrees in over 150 programs. These units and programs are spread over six faculties and two schools, including the Faculty of Applied Science and Textiles, the Faculty of Construction and Environment, the School of Hotel and Tourism Management, and the School of Design. The university is dedicated to providing holistic education to its students. As such, it's the first tertiary institution in Hong Kong to include Work-Integrated Education internships into its undergraduate curriculum.
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University started out as the Government Trade School, founded in 1937 in the Wan Chai area. After World War II, the school was renamed the Hong Kong Technical College, expanding into Hung Hom. In 1972, the school was officially established as the Hong Kong Polytechnic, intended to help fill the government's need for qualified workers by providing professional-oriented education. The institution officially became a degree-granting university in 1994.
In recent years, the university gained recognition in Asia and worldwide for its excellence in subjects such as hospitality and leisure management and art and design. PolyU maintains an expansive campus, with the main campus located in Hung Hom, Kowloon. The campus grounds are also home to Hotel Icon, a teaching and research hotel for the university's School of Hotel and Tourism management. The Hong Kong Community College, established in 2001, is also a subsidiary of the university.
In its commitment to excellence in interdisciplinary research, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University also maintains an extensive network of laboratories, research institutes, and research centers. In addition to on-campus research facilities, the university jointly operates a number of laboratories in coordination with the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
These research facilities allow university staff and students to explore fields of study such as aerospace, aviation, big data and AI, intelligent construction, and sustainability. The university has patented and licensed a number of its researchers' discoveries in fields such as applied physics, biotechnology, and electrical engineering.
PolyU promotes internationalization and aims to prepare students to be global citizens and thrive in international working environments. Students are encouraged to participate in student mobility programs to improve their global awareness. To this end, the university is part of alliances such as the University Social Responsibility Network and the University Alliance of the Silk Road.
