Welcome to the online gateway to The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Over the past eight decades, PolyU has developed from a technical institution into one of the top universities in Asia. Evolving to meet the needs of an environment characterized by changes and complexity, the University has cemented its role as a key player not only in the higher education sector but in society as a whole.
Our education and research promise of “Opening Minds • Shaping the Future” steers us towards our vision of advancing and transferring knowledge, and providing the best holistic education for the benefit of Hong Kong, the nation and the world.
We take pride in offering a wide range of quality programmes which nurture graduates who are critical thinkers, effective communicators, innovative problem solvers and socially responsible global citizens. PolyU is the first university in Hong Kong to include Service-Learning as a mandatory and credit-bearing subject for all undergraduate students. Service-Learning connects professional education with societal needs, and gives our students the opportunity to use their knowledge to improve others’ quality of life.
We also embrace an innovative, interdisciplinary and forward-thinking research culture that supports our academics in conducting research that is closely tied to the needs of our community and the wider world.
Apart from being a close partner of business and industry, PolyU has strong regional and global connections. We are weaving a growing global network which further facilitates our education, research and knowledge transfer endeavours. We have strengthened our establishments in Mainland China, and have achieved significant progress in internationalization.
As you surf our website, I hope you will learn more about our University and discover how we accord top priority to students’ all-round development while doing our best also to contribute to the development of the local and international community.
I look forward to meeting and greeting you on our campus. In the meantime, have a very enjoyable virtual visit.
