Since its establishment in 1984, City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has provided high quality education to the Hong Kong community and meet the needs of our knowledge-based society. It has achieved phenomenal growth from a small institution, housed in temporary premises, to a major University with an international reputation for teaching and scholarship, enrolling students in programmes at levels ranging up through post-doctoral research. CityU offers professional education that prepares its students for the challenges and exciting opportunities opening up in Hong Kong, the Asia-Pacific region and throughout the world in veterinary medicine, business, science and engineering, liberal arts and social sciences, energy and environment, creative media and law. With our world-class teachers, well-developed educational programmes and wide-ranging learning experiences, we prepare our students to become well-rounded young professionals with confidence and competence. We advocate a student-centred learning educational philosophy, emphasizing the achievement of learning outcomes as the real measure of student success. CityU links professional education with applied research. Our research enterprise serves many objectives, including nurturing promising new areas; applying research results to support economic and social development; and informing teaching by scholarship that is conducted at the cutting edge of disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and professional fields. We strive to nurture postgraduate research training by broadening students’ academic exposure and through knowledge transfer activities. We have established University Research Institutes, State Key Laboratories, Research Centres, and Applied Strategic Development Centres to foster interdisciplinary research. We also collaborate closely with industry, producing direct benefits for society in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland. CityU has become an international University with links to many high-quality institutions on the mainland and overseas. The University has embraced the philosophy of a broad student mix. We encourage student and staff interactions to create a multi-cultural environment on campus, to enhance students’ exposure to other cultures, and to stimulate out-of-the-box thinking. Through the exchange of faculty and students with mainland and overseas institutions, we form cultural bridges throughout the world and our students develop global perspectives. CityU offers state-of-the-art learning, teaching and research facilities in a high-technology environment to create an ambiance that encourages intellectual curiosity, social interaction, self expression and mutual support.
