A great university is a place where like-minded minds meet and generate energy through innovation and discovery.
It is a gathering of intelligent, talented individuals where issues of deep human consequence and preparations for future professional and societal contributions are addressed.
CityU encourages all our faculty members to engage in both teaching and problem-resolving oriented research to fulfill the role of transmitting, imparting, and explicating knowledge, as well as investigating, creating, innovating and transferring knowledge.
Research and Teaching integration
Teaching means the communication and exchange of ideas, which in turn provides a source of inspiration for research. Teaching and research enrich and complement each other. Teachers should present their research achievements to foster the communication of ideas. This process will help us further benchmark our programmes against international standards and phase out those that are outdated.
We encourage students to discover, invent and innovate to surpass the knowledge of their predecessors. By doing so, students become the central players in the processes of knowledge transmission, innovation, application and transfer.
We offer students the opportunity to take risks, explore the unknown and make an original discovery. Our aim is to infuse campus with a spirit of discovery, innovation, creative thinking and entrepreneurship as a response to the changing economic and technological landscape and as we develop into a world-class university.
