AWS Backs HSUHK’s Efforts to Build Hong Kong’s Cloud Innovation School

Amazon Web Services (AWS) will support the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK) in its efforts to establish a Cloud Innovation School (CIS).

Touted to be the first of its kind in Hong Kong, the CIS aims to foster the development of the startup community and prepare technology talents for the job market.

The school will focus on four areas; Cloud Computing Training and Education, Cloud Course Development, Academic Research, and Employment and Entrepreneurship Development.

It will provide HSUHK students with comprehensive and practical training in cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics, using AWS’s cloud courses and resources, as well as its own cross-disciplinary financial technology expertise.

“By establishing the first ‘Cloud Innovation School’ in Hong Kong, our students will be able to utilize AWS’s cloud technology and educational resources and learn to work with world-leading cloud technology.


With our small-class teaching model and excellent faculty members, we strongly believe that the Cloud Innovation School will greatly enhance the effectiveness of our teaching, further equip our students for the future, and prepare them to embrace more opportunities.”

said Professor Simon S M Ho, President of HSUHK.
