Over 160 programmes, some internationally recognised, making The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) distinctive from other institutions in the region. We are the sole provider of some unique programmes in Hong Kong in the following areas: design, engineering in air transport, aviation and transportation systems, environment and sustainable development, geomatics, mental health nursing, occupational therapy, optometry, physiotherapy and radiography. PolyU is the only university in Hong Kong that incorporates Work-Integrated Education and Service-Learning as mandatory components within the undergraduate curriculum, encouraging students to apply their knowledge in practice to address societal needs and improve the lives of the needy. The University has a solid presence in the Chinese mainland, with six regional centres established to offer subjects, internship and Service-Learning opportunities for students in collaboration with mainland universities and corporations. Students of PolyU will be exposed to countless learning opportunities both inside and outside classroom, allowing them to specialise in their interests and follow their dreams.
