Program Description:


Why study in Hong Kong?
Hong Kong is not only an ultra-modern city full of skyscrapers, but also a place where it is possible to experience ancient tradition in a blend of Eastern and Western culture. It is the gateway into Mainland China, offering numerous travel opportunities. Because English is commonly used in the city, it is a convenient destination for international students, while also offering the opportunity to learn Cantonese and Mandarin. HKUST is a leading academic force, ranking within the world’s top 30 engineering schools, and it attracts students from other top engineering schools from all over the world.
