For many students, one major plus of the MBA programme at HKUST is the chance to match theory with practice.
Scientific modelling is the process of generating abstract, conceptual, graphical or mathematical models. Science offers a growing collection of methods, techniques and theory about all kinds of specialized scientific modelling. A scientific model can provide a way to read elements easily which have been broken down to a simpler form.
Modelling is an essential and inseparable part of all scientific activity, and many scientific disciplines have their own ideas about specific types of modelling. There is an increasing attention for scientific modelling in fields such as of philosophy of science, systems theory, and knowledge visualization.
