Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU)

Educational Institution

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) is a public research university located in Hung Hom, Hong Kong. The University is one of the eight government-funded degree-granting tertiary institutions in Hong Kong. Founded in 1937 as the first Government Trade School, it is the first institution to provide technical education in Hong Kong. In 1994, the Legislative Council of Hong Kong passed a bill which granted the former Hong Kong Polytechnic official university status.

Since our beginnings in 1937, 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.

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.
