A new era: the Co-op Program

Students are more aspiring than ever, and more alumni are reaching out to recruit HKUST talent. The Co-op program was launched to meet these growing needs. In 2020, a Co-op program in partnership with the School of Humanities and Social Science (SHSS) was launched for undergraduate students. It is the first credit-bearing program at HKUST that offers exclusive pre-employment training hosted by seasoned alumni professionals; one-on-one mock interviews conducted by alumni in senior management positions; 6-month paid internship opportunities with our partner employers; and guidance from alumni mentors in the fields that Co-op students are interested in.

Year 4, BSc Global China Studies

The Co-op Program has sharpened my skills in internship hunting. Students have an alumnus assigned to them as mentor. I’m delighted that I am given the opportunity to intern at Lidl Asia!
