Internet of Things (IoT) is among the pillars in the “Internet Plus” action plan in China, presented in the Chinese Government’s work report in 2015. The Internet of Things Thrust Area under the Information Hub at HKUST(GZ) is established to grow HKUST’s strength in wireless communications and networking, and contribute to the nation’s drive to become a world leader in IoT. The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programme in the Internet of Things is offered as an integral part of the endeavour to become a world-renowned IoT research centre with the mission to advance applied research in IoT as well as fundamental research relevant to the application areas.
The PhD Programme aims to train students in conducting original research in IoT and to cultivate independent, interdisciplinary, and innovative thinking that is essential for a successful career in IoT-related industry and/or academia. A PhD graduate is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in the chosen discipline and the ability to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial scientific contribution to the discipline.
