About this Guide:

Each student enrolled in a specific program is subject to the requirements of the department and the University. All postgraduate students must adhere to the curriculum of the year of entry throughout their program of study.
Students should ensure that they understand the curriculum requirements of their program and plan ahead to complete their program within the permitted duration of study. In case of deviations from School/departmental/program requirements, approval must be obtained from the Dean or the Dean’s designee. Deviations from University requirements must be approved by the HKUST Fok Ying Tung Graduate School.
Departments should, as far as possible, deliver the curriculum advertised unless due to special circumstances, changes to the original curriculum are necessary or advantageous.
Detailed curriculum requirements for students admitted in different academic years are published in the Postgraduate Program Catalog.
