Admission Talks Provide Useful Information

The first admission talk will be held at 10 am in the Sir Run Run Shaw Hall, CUHK focusing on the latest admission arrangement this year.

AI and Data Science and Policy Studies Programmes

Artificial Intelligent (AI) technology has been integrating with different industries and even our daily lives. Take medical application as an example, AI can be used to detect early stage cancer and improve the accuracy of computer-assisted surgery. Self-service stores and smart homes are also AI-based services. Moreover, world population ageing will boost the demand for AI talent. The new AI programme is the first of its kind in Hong Kong and is offered by the Faculty of Engineering at CUHK, which is one of the world’s recognised AI research institutions. The programme is designed to meet today’s tremendous need of well-trained talents in AI and related specialisations.

Data science is the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity. Big data serves as the basis and evidence for solving complex social problems. In response to this societal need and to develop people with the professional knowledge of both data analytics and policy studies, the Faculty of Social Science at CUHK will launch an undergraduate programme in Data Science and Policy Studies. Students should join the exchange programme to take related subjects offered by the overseas partnering institutions that are leaders in the field of data science and policy studies.

New Five-year Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) Degree Programme

There is high demand for professional early childhood educators as a result of the implementation of the 15-year free education policy in Hong Kong. In response to the latest development and the needs of early childhood education, the Faculty of Education of CUHK will launch a full-time Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) Degree Programme in the 2019-20 academic year. Through this Programme, the Faculty aims to develop high quality kindergarten teachers and early childhood educators in Hong Kong.
