In line with the HKUST Quality Assurance Framework, the School of Science follows a set of quality assurance mechanism, initiated either from the School or University level, for periodic review and quality enhancement of its educational programs. This gives our science students an all-rounded education that enriches the development of their appreciation on science, ethical practice, global outlook, critical thinking and skills that are essential for lifelong learning.
