Ambition knows no limits.
HKUST is celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2011. Short may be our history, much has been achieved. With an undeterred determination and a dauntless ambition to pursue excellence, HKUST has grown in stature and prestige in a mere two decades. Today, our four Schools and many of our programs are among the best in the world, and HKUST has been named “the miracle university”.
In another aspect, we are also among the world’s best – internationalization. We pride to provide our students a truly internationalized education on a culturally diverse campus. Our ability to manage an extensive international exchange program has been commended in the 2010 University Grants Committee’s Quality Assurance Council Audit Report. As of 2010, 37% of our undergraduates have the opportunity to go for at least one semester exchange at HKUST’s over 150 overseas partner institutions. We will further strengthen our internationalization initiatives to groom graduates to be truly capable of meeting the challenges of a globalized era.
In this issue of UST LINK, we showcase our internationalization initiatives, our creative programs and courses, our students’ exciting life in and out of the campus, their marvelous achievements and contributions to the community, the numerous opportunities we provide and most important of all, the infinite possibilities ahead of them. You will be amazed at the remarkable creativity and brilliance of our students.
