The program will empower the student with background and skills required to successfully initiate innovative products or services. The degree is centered around the project – each student, working independently or in a team, will conceptualize and develop a product/service idea during their study period.
Along the way, they can enroll in technical courses to build in-depth knowledge about the product domain, helping them to discriminate their ideas and build a market edge. In parallel, they will learn foundations for design, entrepreneurship, leadership, and business via a rich selection of courses.
Project supervisors can be selected from among any faculty in HKUST. Students will be equipped with practical details of launching a startup in the Hong Kong and/or The Pearl River Delta (PRD) area via a startup workshop.
Successful graduates are expected to make a positive impact towards the development of better society and the world.
