Opening Minds • Shaping the Future

Since our beginnings in 1937, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has evolved alongside economic and social development in Hong Kong and the world. We have done more than change with the times. We have nurtured many bright minds who have contributed to the advancement of society. We are also a platform where practical, yet world-changing, ideas are conceived and brought to life.

Through our relentless pursuit of excellence, we pioneer new ways of delivering higher learning. Our innovative model combines professional knowledge with service-learning and real-world experience. Our global connections open the minds and broaden the perspectives of our future generations. And our culture of blazing new trails drives us to challenge boundaries and uncover knowledge that benefits mankind.

The results speak for themselves. Over the decades, our graduates have become movers and shakers in different fields. We conduct thousands of research – ranging from improving daily life to opening up new horizons in space. We are committed to finding cures and fighting poverty, shaping fashion trends and making the world greener. And most importantly, we will never stop inspiring the people who will shape tomorrow.

This is why at PolyU, we proudly say that our promise has always been and will always be “Opening Minds • Shaping the Future”.
