New Partnership with HKUST
A new cooperative partnership has been established with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).
President Sunggi Baik visited HKUST on April 7, 2011, to sign agreements for university-wide cooperation and a joint Ph.D. degree program with the HKUST School of Engineering.
In accordance to the student exchange clauses of the cooperation agreement, POSTECH undergraduate students have HKUST added to their choice of study abroad institutions starting Spring Semester 2012.
Candidates of the POSTECH-HKUST joint Ph.D. program will have co-advisors at both POSTECH and HKUST, and spend at least two years in residence at each university.
HKUST is a public university established in 1991. It was ranked 41st by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2010.
