The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
What Uni in the USA says...
HKUST is secreted away in the rural (as far as anything can be rural in Hong Kong) village of Po Lam, so don't expect quite the ultra-urban skyscraper image you may have of other HK unis. Walking around the campus, the dominant impression is one of hard work. Students can be seen quietly reading a book in the McCafe, or jotting down some presumably brilliant scientific insight in the university canteen (often so studious that it resembles a library with food outlets).
