Location Information

Hong Kong, China - Lying at the heart of Asia and the southern tip of China, Hong Kong is not only one of the world's major business and financial centers, but also a unique place where ancient Chinese traditions are interwoven with modern science and technologies. With 150 years of British colonial influence, this territory, which has been within the Chinese empire since more than 2000 years ago, is full of such diversities and richness in heritage that few other places in the world can rival in. Stepping beyond its doorsteps are the many fascinating cities of the Chinese Mainland including Macau, which are easily accessible from Hong Kong via its well-developed transportation network. 

Opened in 1991 and publicly funded, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) us a technological university dedicated to the advancement of learning and scholarship. Despite its short history, HKUST has gained worldwide recognition for its academic excellence, and is placed on the 40th position among the world's top universities. In the area of Engineering and Technology in particular, HKUST always ranks among the world top 50 and No. 1 in Hong Kong.
