Alumni Survey I

The purpose of the study was to find out HKUST alumni’s perceptions of how undergraduate programs at HKUST have helped to prepare graduates for their careers and contributed to their personal growth, and to provide additional feedback on the development of the four-year degree. The research questions were formulated as follows:

  1. What general competencies are believed to be important for career success? 
  2. What undergraduate (UG) experiences contribute to career success?
  3. What relationship exists between the career development of graduates and their UG experience?
  4. What do the alumni believe should be implemented for the new 4-year curriculum?

A random sample of 5000 alumni graduating from 1994 to 2007 were invited to participate in the survey.  Responses from over 2000 alumni were received.
