Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program
Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, or UROP in short, is one of HKUST’s signature programs designed to provide a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to engage in academic research and help them develop a broad an insightful perspective of their areas of interest. It was first launched in 2005 and was offered every summer for students to immerse themselves in various tailor-made research projects.

Over the years, UROP has been well received by both students and faculty, and enrolment has increased year after year. To further develop UROP into a flagship program of HKUST and to leverage on the program’s success in the past years, starting from fall 2010, a new course series was introduced, and would be offered in all semesters (fall, spring and summer), for students to participate in rigorous research projects that spans across the academic year.
