The years from now to 2020 will serve as an important bridge to prepare HKUST for the University’s longer-term development in the next 25 years and beyond, locally, regionally and internationally.

We aspire to break through boundaries and generate new fields in line with new times, as well as advance our calling as a pioneering science and technology institution, leader in business and management education and research, and influential contributor in humanities and social science.

We will be a hub for the world’s greatest minds; a front-runner and significant partner as a science and technology university in the Pearl River Delta and nationally; and a transformational and life-long catalyst for socially responsible innovators, entrepreneurs, leaders and community pace-setters, with commitment to their local environment and the global vision and confidence to tackle the immense challenges and changes that await society at large in the decades ahead.

Supported and sustained by their enriching HKUST experience and 1-HKUST spirit, our students, graduates, faculty and staff will always be ready to step up and reach higher to inspire and activate the future.
