The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has a proud and illustrious history dating back to 1937. Formerly known as the Hong Kong Polytechnic, we assumed full university status in 1994. We are strategically located in Hung Hom, in the heart of Kowloon and our campus continues to grow with extensive development and rapid expansion in the last 10 years.
We offer a wide range of academic programmes which directly meet industrial, commercial and community needs of the city and the region. In addition to meeting Hong Kong's manpower requirements, we also make significant contributions towards the territory's success and enhance strong partnerships by providing an expanding range of consultancy, professional training and applied research services to the public and private sectors.
Our mission is to provide high quality education of an applied nature to meet the changing requirements of the world, and preparing students for the challenges they will meet in their future careers. We offer a wide range of academic programmes, many of which are among the best in Asia, and indeed the world. In addition to equipping our students with professional competency, we also encourage the development of independent thinking, good communication skills and the nurturing of a global outlook in all our students.
Over the years, we have groomed more than 310,000 graduates, many of whom have become leaders in their professional fields, contributing their knowledge and expertise to the building and development of Hong Kong's thriving economy. We look forward to welcoming you to the PolyU community and hope it will be an empowering experience for you which will further enhance your potentials for the future.
