The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has positioned itself as an international university which emphasizes on both teaching and research.
Over the years, HKUST has been making strides progressively in education, research, knowledge transfer, and community services.
Leveraging on the academic leadership in higher education and impending development of China’s innovation-driven Greater Bay Area (GBA), HKUST welcomes the opportunity to establish a new campus in Guangzhou (GZ), Mainland China.
The Ministry of Education of People’s Republic of China officially approved the preparatory status of HKUST (GZ) in September 2019.
Preparatory work on areas such as academic planning, institutional structure, and campus development for HKUST (GZ) is underway.
Located in Qingsheng, Nansha in Guangzhou, HKUST (GZ) covers 1.13 square kilometers. The first phase of construction of the GZ campus is expected to be completed in 2022.
At steady state, the number of undergraduate and postgraduate students will reach a total of 10,000.
The intended areas of focus in the GZ Campus will be thematic and cross-disciplinary in nature, synergistic with HKUST without overlapping academic degrees or structures.
