To equip our undergraduates with a global perspective, which is something that no one can do away with in the 21st Century, the School of Engineering provides a realm of exchange opportunities for its students. Currently, the School has established exchange network with more than 100 institutions around the world that span across 28 countries/regions.
These programs enable students to study abroad and then return to their home institution to obtain their degree. Credits are fully transferrable so that students can make academic progress at the same pace as they remain in Hong Kong. Tuition is paid to one's home institution, and that for the host institution is waived.
Engineering students at HKUST have the choice of doing regular term exchange or summer-term exchange in one of the School's top-notch partner institutions. The international exposure, which complements the undergraduate education, greatly enhances students’ cultural experience, boosts personal development, and helps provide a competitive advantage in future career development.
