Our Discovery-enriched Curriculum equips graduates with a creative mind-set, a global perspective and a high-level of multicultural sensitivity to respond to the challenges of working and living in the fast-changing world of the 21st century.

CityU is strongly committed to extending the frontiers of knowledge and applying its cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art facilities to contribute to solutions to critical real-world problems for human betterment. The University’s 2015-2020 Strategic Plan has identified One Health, Digital Society and Smart City as three overarching themes to integrate our research capabilities and programme strengths to respond to the societal and global challenges of our highly interconnected world.

CityU’s academic goals also emphasize promoting the preservation of traditional cultural heritage. The University has been championing the groundbreaking use of creative media and engineering technology to give new expression to cultural heritage and historical paintings. Our innovative projects demonstrate how ancient history and modern technology converge at CityU to offer new perspectives on traditional art, enhance student reflections and appreciation of history and culture, and provide myriad opportunities for discovery and creativity.
