The HKUST Academic Achievement Medal was established
in 1994 to commend our undergraduate students for their outstanding
academic achievements. This is the highest academic honor bestowed
by the University on undergraduates upon graduation.
The Medal is presented annually at the University Congregation.
At least one medal will be awarded in each graduation year. To be
qualified as a Medal recipient, the student must satisfy all of
the following criteria:
||Be graduating from a bachelor's degree
||Have no record of course failures during his/her
study at HKUST; and
Have achieved a final cumulative grade average (CGA) of at least 3.9. The final CGA should include at least 60 HKUST credits (for three-year programs) in the calculation.
As the selection criteria are fairly rigorous; only
about the top 1% of the graduates will be awarded the Medal each
* Note: Prior to 2010-11, the medal recipients had to achieve a final CGA of at least 10.75 under the 12-point grading system.
