HKUST is a very special university, having achieved wide recognition as a focused elite research university with strong global reputation in education and research. We are proud to be leading this remarkable institution into the next phase of development through the implementation of the University Strategic Plan since 2016, now extended to the year 2022.

Advancing from the substantial platform of accomplishment established by the University’s preceding road maps, the HKUST Strategic Plan highlights fresh areas of focus to harness and optimize the changing times, and specific objectives to steer actions. It is the result of wide engagement over two years with members of the University and local community, including valuable contributions from the Council and Court.
