Vice President Lin Zhijun delivered a speech at the opening ceremony. He noted that M.U.S.T. has been taking as its mission to nurture intellectual growth, develop high-quality education and extraordinary research, and contribute forces to Macao’s economic development and societal progress. With the support from the Central People’s Government and the Macao S.A.R. Government, through the hard work of generations of MUSTers, the University has become the largest-scale comprehensive university in Macao. Earlier on September 11th, the United Kingdom’s Times Higher Education published the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020, where Macau University of Science and Technology (M.U.S.T.) made to the list for the first time and was ranked among the top 251-300. This not only marked that the University has officially joined the rank of the Top 300 world universities, but also demonstrated the substantial progress made by Macao in the higher education sector over the past 20 years since it returned to the motherland.
This year, M.U.S.T. will be generating about 2,000 undergraduates and 1,300 postgraduates to graduate from the University and join the work force and make their contributions for society. The University hopes that the students seize opportunities, and stay proactive to participate in various events to train their professional skills and improve their overall competitiveness and employability, and therefore help them to make thorough preparations for expanding their careers, fulfilling their dreams and servicing the community.
