School of Design, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

PolyU has been an important hub of design education and research for Hong Kong since 1964.  Providing design education from undergraduate to postgraduate levels, the School is poised to play a leading role in nurturing new generations of designers and driving design innovation in the region.  PolyU Design is ranked as one of the top design schools in the world by BusinessWeek.


To further drive the development of Hong Kong as a design hub in Asia, and provide additional space to facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration, a new complex named “Innovation Tower” will be built on campus. The Innovation Tower will be the first permanent architectural work in Hong Kong of Ms Zaha Hadid, one of the most influential figures in the world of modern architecture.


PolyU Design’s specialisms include advertising, environment and interior design, product design, communication, interaction and digital media.  Programs are offered at higher diploma, bachelor, master, and PhD levels. Its Master of Design (Design Strategies) program was rated by the BusinessWeek among the world’s best “design thinking programs”.


Famous designers who graduated from PolyU Design include Raman Hui (Animation), Freeman Lau (Branding, Art), Vivienne Tam (Fashion), Anthony Lo, (Automotive), Yip Kam-tim (Film), Dennis Chan (Jewelry), among others.
