Course content

The opportunities for entrepreneurship are vast in the current global environment. Technical innovations are making great impacts to people’s lives and contributing successes to different economies. In this unique program, students are provided the opportunities to experience the entrepreneurship journey through coursework, internship, and the creation of a marketable product/offering and the business plan that goes with it.

The TLE program offers students with interdisciplinary experiences and opens up career prospects to technology management and entrepreneurship.

This MPhil program seeks to develop students' entrepreneurial spirit so they can initiate innovation within companies or start their own business using hi-tech technologies. It aims to play a catalytic role in developing an innovative educational culture and entrepreneurship ecosystems on the University campus and to accelerate knowledge transfer to impact society.

Students are required to undertake coursework including TLE and technology core courses, attend TLE seminars, participate in business competitions, and undergo industrial internship for a minimum of two months.

Students must also successfully complete and defend a thesis that demonstrates their research capabilities for product development and understanding of the commercial aspects on how to make the product successful in the marketplace.

Research Foci
The Technology Leadership and Entrepreneurship (TLE) program specifically addresses the development of technical innovation, leadership skills and capabilities for entrepreneurship.

For their research, students can select the development of a product based on their own idea or work on one of the current ideas from a professor within the university. Either case, students are matched with a leading research professor who can help them to develop their research skills and make the idea into a marketable product.

During the program, students can also develop partnerships with other students on campus to develop their product and start up their own company.

HKUST provides strong infrastructural support to foster leading-edge research and innovations. The institutes and research centers at the university create an interdisciplinary environment, helping to generate fresh ideas and enabling these ideas to be tested and realized.

The school also has centers to support our students on entrepreneurship know how, intellectual properties protection, and technology transfer.

Some facilities that are of particular interest include Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility, CLP Power Wind/Wave Tunnel Facility, Nanoelectronics Fabrication Facility, Advanced Engineering Materials Facility, Design and Manufacturing Services Facilities, Social Media Lab, Entrepreneurship Center, and the Technology Transfer Center.
