Electronic Documents Verification

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology issues some official documents in electronic format which are verifiable.  The Blockcerts technology is adopted in registering and verifying the electronic documents issued.  The content of the official documents is saved in an electronic file in JSON format which can be verified and viewed at the University official website: https://registry.ust.hk/verify.  At the moment, the process can only be conducted using a desktop/laptop computer.

Students/Graduates receiving the file in JSON format may save and transfer it to other parties at their discretion.  An electronic document from HKUST is authentic and verifiable in JSON format only.  Electronic documents in any other format (such as PDF/HTML) could be viewed directly at the University official website during the verification process.


At present, the University issues the following documents in electronic format:
