History

In the late 1980s the Hong Kong Government anticipated a strong demand for university graduates to fuel an economy increasingly based on services. Chung Sze Yuen and the Governor of Hong Kong, Edward Youde, conceived the idea of another university in Hong Kong. Envisioning the establishment of an internationally competitive university, planning for the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology began in 1986. Construction began at the former British garrison Kohima Camp in Tai Po Tsai on the Clear Water Bay Peninsula. Originally scheduled to finish in 1994 [ [http://www.ust.hk/eng/about/fh_history.htm The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology ] ] , the death of Edward Youde in 1986 led to increased effort and allowed for UST to open its doors early - in 1991.

The project was heavily criticized for surpassing the budget originally set forth by the Hong Kong Government and Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club. However, under the fund raising efforts of its Vice-Chancellor at the time, Woo Chia-wei, the first students enrolled in October 1991. By 1992, accommodation as well as athletic facilities were expanded to support about 7,000 students. Several more expansion projects such as the construction of the HKUST Enterprise Centre have since been completed and current efforts include the expansion of housing facilities scheduled for completion for 2009.

Campus

The university campus ( [http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&time=&date=&ttype=&q=sai+kung,+hong+kong&ie=UTF8&ll=22.335568,114.26543&spn=0.011829,0.01869&t=h&z=16&iwloc=addr&om=0 layout] ) occupies a convert|60|ha|km2|lk=on site which is divided into a several sections: the Academic Building, S.H. Ho Sports Hall, student halls, outdoor sports facilities, the University Centre, apartments, staff quarters and the President's Lodge. Being constructed along the slope of the surrounding hills, beautiful Port Shelter is clearly visible from virtually every building on campus. Arranged in cascades, the buildings are connected by walkways and several balconies thus offer a spectacular view of the South China Sea.

The Academic Building

The Academic Building contains all lecture theatres, classrooms, laboratories and administrative offices. There are 10 lecture theaters (A-H, J-K) as well as a multitude of classrooms and labs. They are designed to accommodate classes of up to 450 students and all offer the latest audiovisual equipment. Access to UST's wireless network is available throughout most of the Academic Building as well as the surrounding areas. Information Technology Services Center ( [http://www.ust.hk/itsc/ ITSC] ) operates and maintains a multitude of modern computer laboratories and computational facilities. IT services are extensive and access to services provided by ITSC, including printing resources and UNIX time-sharing facilities, is easy, reliable and universally available.

The University Library

[http://library.ust.hk/ The HKUST Library] , part of the Hong Kong Academic Library Link ( [http://hkall.hku.hk/ HKALL] ), occupies a central location of the campus. Connected to the Academic Building, it is accessible directly from the Hong Kong Jockey Club Atrium. It spans five floors with over 10,550 sqm [ [http://library.ust.hk/info/library.html Introduction to the HKUST Lee Shau Kee Library ] ] of floor space, providing 1,950 [http://library.ust.hk/info/library.html>] seats as well as extensive computing facilities. With several collections, wireless access throughout as well as copying and reference services, the library represents an integral part of UST's campus structure and overall academic setup. It offers a wide array of information resources, both local and remote. In addition to over 650,000 print volumes and a large collection of media resources, it provides access to more than 25,000 electronic and print journals, a large number of e-books, databases, and other digital information resources. [ [http://library.ust.hk/info/library.html Introduction to the HKUST Lee Shau Kee Library ] ]

tudent Housing

On-campus housing is available for undergraduate as well as postgraduate students. However, there are insufficient places available for the entire student population. While international as well as exchange students are generally guaranteed on-campus housing, spaces are appropriated on a competitive basis to the remainder of mostly local applicants.

With housing fees being very low relative to off-campus accommodation, students live in one of several halls. Generally, a room is shared between two or three students. While sinks are present in newer rooms, showers as well as toilets are shared. Similarly, students have access to one or more common rooms per floor. These include a television, water boiler, microwave, telephone as well as a fridge. Common rooms face the bay, include a balcony and are often used for study as well as group discussions. Wireless access is present in many common rooms although wall sockets for wired access to the campus network are universally installed throughout all student halls. In addition to the student halls, there are four university apartment towers (A-D). Housing arrangements in the apartment towers vary. In general, however, an apartment of four rooms, including a small kitchen and common area is shared by four occupants. Apartment housing is extremely scarce and is several times more expensive than standard shared accommodation.

Health Services

Located on LG1, next to the Sports Hall entrance, the Health Center consists of a Medical Clinic, a Student Dental Clinic as well as a Staff Dental Clinic. The Medical Clinic provides free out-patient service to full-time students. Specialist services in Allergy, Dermatology, ENT, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Pulmonology, Surgery and Physiotherapy are also available subject to a charge.

ports and Recreational Facilities

Sports and recreational facilities are extensive and free of charge for students and staff. Facilities include an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a stadium, an indoor sport hall, mini soccer pitch, basketball courts, volleyball courts, tennis courts, a fully equipped fitness centre including table-tennis and squash courts. Some sports facilities such as squash or tennis courts can be booked online up to seven days in advance.

Additionally, the school offers a wide variety of sports skill classes, clubs and other recreational programmes open to students and staff. Facilities as well as equipment are new and well-maintained. Equipment can often be borrowed and staff on site is plentiful, friendly and approachable.

Other Facilities

Several restaurants are located on campus. Canteen-style facilities are provided on LG1, LG5 and LG7. Cheap Chinese and western-style food is available here as well as at the Seafront Cafe, located on the ground floor of New Hall.

International Programs Unit

HKUST's academic and research programs, with universities worldwide, creates an international environment for faculty, students and staff.

Exchange Programs

School of Business
*Internationalization is an integral element of the undergraduate experience. The importance of allowing students to learn global perspectives first-hand by immersing themselves in another culture is highly recognized. To support this objective is the Business School's long established exchange program. The School has the most extensive student exchange network in Asia, with close to 100 partner schools worldwide. Its partners consist of highly-renowned universities in America, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Continuing negotiations for new exchanges agreements mean a constantly widening choice of options for students.

*Around 2,000 students have been chosen for academic exchanges since the program's inception in 1995. Every year close to 400 undergraduates, that is over half of the School's BBA/BSc student population, spend a semester at renowned Business Schools overseas. To allow for greater global exposure, some students can be selected for two semester exchanges at separate universities in two different continents.

*With such a large exchange program, HKUST Business School provides an environment for both outgoing and incoming students to broaden their horizons.

School of EngineeringThe School of Engineering provides exchange programs with many top US universities and a few other universities in Europe such as University of Illinois, Cornell, Rice University, Georgia Inst. of Technology, UC Berkeley, Tulane University, etc. The program is usually one-year long allowing the participants to fully experience the local culture and lifestyle. The school also provide exchange programs in mainland China which is more popular among local Hong Kong students while full time mainland China based students accounts more for the participants in oversea exchange-out program.

School of ScienceIn school of science, the exchange program is organized by Science for Success.

Enrichment Program

*Enrichment activities provided by business school offer students valuable opportunity to broaden eye horizon, and acquire a wider range of knowledge other than concentrating a specific discipline.
