Red Bird MPhil (RBM) Program is HKUST(GZ)’s key vehicle for practising and promoting the interdisciplinary “Hub Concept” in cultivating talented young people. Based on the notion of student-centredness, students, academic supervisors from hubs/thrusts, industry advisors and project mentors work together to complete group projects and teaching tasks. Students develop quickly in this total immersion in knowledge and skill.

  • Empower students to gain interdisciplinary knowledge, practicing team spirit and project management skills through project development process.
  • Breakthrough the traditional classroom, modularized courses are embedded into projects to ensure students get the best out of them.
  • Individual projects have a clearly defined research content to ensure student who has completed the projects successfully are able to meet the MPhil academic requirements of HKUST.
