Surrounded by limpid sea water and deep blue sky, the beautiful campus helps students to relax from their busy assignments. We are offered plenty of opportunities here to train critical mindsets, expand international horizons, improve technical skills and build social networks. My peers are always here to help out when I face difficulties. We grow for better together. Come join HKUST and find your own sunshine and tomorrow!

His company, INNOWAT Limited, was set up last year to help wastewater treatment plants produce sulfated polysaccharides (a valuable and widely used industrial feedstock) so they can generate profit and reduce pollution at the same time. "Creating economic profit to compensate for operational costs during wastewater treatment is promising and important, especially for developing countries.

Supported by a Fulbright Junior Research Award, I spent a fruitful year in the U.S. and Switzerland. My project was to explore the nature and the evolution of the earth's atmosphere, and how it affects our lives. It was a great experience that broadened my academic and personal horizons.


HKUST is an ideal place for research work. It has excellent facilities as well as world-class research professionals. The beautiful campus makes the school life very enjoyable. And thanks for the HK PhD Fellowship Scheme, it has largely reduced my financial pressures to pursue my PhD studies in Hong Kong. It gives me great flexibility to choose my research topic. Also, it provides me with unique opportunities to network with outstanding people at HKUST and other universities through the events organized by the University and the Research Grants Council.
