CityUHK is delighted to announce that the Ministry of Education has officially approved the establishment of CityUHK (Dongguan) on 16 April. This significant milestone marks a new chapter in higher education cooperation within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and further solidifies CityUHK’s leading position in innovative education and talent development.

In early 2020, the Dongguan Municipal People’s Government, CityUHK, and Dongguan University of Technology signed an agreement to jointly establish CityUHK (Dongguan). CityUHK (Dongguan) is nestled in the Songshan Lake Science City, surrounded by a plethora of large scientific facilities, Guangdong Provincial Laboratories, leading technology companies, and other high-end innovative resources.

The establishment of CityUHK (Dongguan) will inject fresh vitality into the construction of a high-level international talent hub in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, elevate the standard of higher education development in Dongguan, and contribute to the leading strategy of the comprehensive national science centre in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

CityUHK (Dongguan) will concentrate on fields such as computer science, artificial intelligence and data science, high-end electronic communications, biomedical engineering, intelligent manufacturing, advanced materials, new energy, civil and architectural engineering, and digital economy, with the ambition of becoming a world-class institution in research, education, and innovation.

CityUHK (Dongguan) will initially offer four undergraduate programmes in computer science and technology, intelligent manufacturing engineering, materials science and engineering, and energy and power engineering, along with ten master’s programmes in computer science, electronic information engineering, materials engineering and nanotechnology, mechanical engineering, energy and environment, business information systems, civil and architectural engineering, engineering management, biomedical engineering, and data science. The academic year is set to commence in September this year.

The CityUHK (Dongguan) campus is located in Songshan Lake Science City. The first phase of the campus construction began in early 2022 and was inaugurated earlier this year. The first phase of the campus includes administrative buildings, academic buildings, student dormitories, international exchange centres, comprehensive buildings, and other living facilities. The second phase of the campus construction is projected to be completed by 2026.

The Convocation counts on fellow alumni’s continuous support to build an even stronger network. Please watch out for more Convocation events via its website and Facebook!
