To mark the 25th Anniversary of the University in 2016, a wide spectrum of celebratory programs have started in the Fall semester. More events are coming, including a distinguished speakers series, marathon, gala banquet, exhibition, alumni reunion.
During these past 25 years, HKUST has achieved advancements in various areas and disciplines and become a world class university. When we celebrate our success, this is also a good time for us to look back on how a rocky barracks site has evolved into a picturesque international university.
Through the University Archives collection, the Library has produced a 6-episode series – HKUST: Our Story to show the development and achievements of the University. This is an album of milestones and major events, including the establishment of the University, construction of the campus, establishment of various research centers, campus development, lectures by renowned scholars, research breakthroughs and innovations, conferences and forums, world rankings, and contributions to the society. Go take a look, you will find them fascinating:
