The university is also ranked No 8 in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and among the top 1 per cent in Essential Sciences Indicators (ESI) rankings in both disciplines.

According to Rector Yonghua Song, since its establishment in 1989, the FST has been dedicated to producing outstanding professionals for the science and technology sector in Macao. The faculty’s effort in teaching and research is reflected in UM’s rising international rankings in the field. Song encouraged FST faculty members and students to align their personal and institutional development with the development of UM and Macao, to support the Macao SAR government’s effort to create a smart city, and to promote the advancement of science and technology in Macao and China. Xu Chengzhong, dean of the FST, says that the faculty will continue to keep up with the pace of change and improve its undergraduate, master’s and PhD programmes, in order to nurture high-calibre professionals with a global mindset.

During the event, the FST presented honorary certificates to its alumni and current students for their outstanding achievements. The recipients include Prof Mak Pui In from the FST, advisor for the Secretariat for Transport and Public Works Wong Man Kit, Sou Kun Tou from MECOM Power and Construction Limited, and FST student Huber Hu.
