Welcome to our home in cyberspace, the online gateway between CityU and the global community. Here you will find everything you need to know about our University, from the professional education we pursue and our commitment to research to details about our programmes, people and campus facilities. We have tried hard to make the information provided on these pages highly informative, easy to read and navigate around as well as visually stimulating and interactive.
A year on from our 25th anniversary, we are now embarking on a major five-year development plan. During this past quarter of a century we have grown from relatively humble beginnings to become a high-ranking world university with a talented team of international and local scholars and an energetic campus community. We are now ready to consolidate this success to advance society and establish ourselves as a leading university in the Asia-Pacific region through our Strategic Plan 2010-2015, our road map to excellence.
This Strategic Plan forms the basis of our preparations for a groundbreaking change to the structure and direction of tertiary education in Hong Kong: the shift from a three- to a four-year undergraduate programme. In 2012, when this new four-year programme starts, we will welcome a larger body of students than ever before and introduce a range of exciting new courses to fulfill our dedication to a broad-based, transdisciplinary education for young people in Hong Kong, the region and overseas.
These are exciting times as we embark on this new era in higher education in Hong Kong and we very much hope you will join us. We welcome you all as students, colleagues, alumni, supporters and members of the general public.
President and University Distinguished Professor
