It also demonstrates that our efforts in providing quality education over the years are deservedly recognized. With the new management team fully in place, we are getting ready to turn a new chapter for PolyU. We will make the best use of the opportunities made available by the upcoming four-year undergraduate programme and further the development of our application-oriented research in order to cope with the society’s need for talents and knowledge, as well as enhance PolyU’s status in the world higher education stage.”
