We pursue impactful research that benefits the world. With leading scholars and through our advanced research facilities, we aim to make more effective and efficient technological advances in the following strategic areas.

Your gift will support the ongoing development of this research, which aims to reveal and share new knowledge for the benefit of all mankind.

Our Strategic Areas



Our life sciences and healthcare technologies span areas such as drug research and development, drug delivery, rehabilitation and biomedical engineering, platforms and medical devices, biomedical science and diagnostics and optometry, and include various other specialist innovations.


Numerous projects have been developed in the area of public safety, including the Food Safety Consortium, a structural health monitoring system for bridges, high-rise buildings and towers and the Fibre Bragg Grating Sensor (FBG) system for monitoring the structural health and safety of High-Speed Rail networks.

Sustainable Development

As concerns grow about the current quality of life in urban areas, we aim to develop innovative solutions for sustainable high-density cities by taking advantage of both the “living laboratory” that is Hong Kong, and the multidisciplinary expertise of PolyU.

Aviation and Aeronautics

PolyU has supported space exploration by developing sophisticated tools and devices for various national and international space missions. We have a broad range of expertise from earth-bound transport to space exploration, and our technologies are developed for real-life applications.


As urban traffic continues to increase, we address transport challenges from both micro and macro perspectives. Developments in transport surveillance, structures, vehicle and route patterns, and their interactions with the environment help to ensure the efficiency and safety of travel, every step of the way.
