Welcome Message

Welcome to City University of Hong Kong!

It is a great honour for us to host QS WorldClass 2019, and we hope your visit to CityU is as valuable as it is enjoyable.

This event is very exciting for us because the theme is so close to our hearts.

“One Health” has played a defining role for our faculty and students in recent years.

This key concept has been one of the driving forces behind the creation of our Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences (JCC).

JCC is a highly successful collaboration with the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, a world-leader in veterinary medicine and a strong supporter of One Health.

Across campus, CityU is working hard to ensure that the One Health concept is not just a buzzword for our times but will evolve into a genuine driver for change.

In addition to spearheading the promotion of One Health in Hong Kong and the region, CityU is championing the development of data science. It has set up the first stand-alone school in the region for this discipline. The expertise that the school nurtures will meet the demand for data science professionals in industry and throughout society.

Both data science and One Health bear the same characteristics. They both have implications for other disciplines, including the social, natural and physical sciences, as well as business and IT.

Hence, your participation with us at CityU for QS WorldClass 2019 will strengthen our joint commitment and solve to define, expand and promote the core principles of One Health so that everyone will benefit.

So, please enjoy your stay with us, and let’s look forward together to what promises to be a scintillating QS WorldClass 2019.
