A message from the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology

The National Taiwan University of Science and Technology was founded on August 1, 1974, as the National Taiwan Institute of Technology (NTIT). It was the first higher education institution of its kind within our nation's technology education system. On August 1, 1997, NTIT was upgraded to university status and changed its name to the “National Taiwan University of Science and Technology,” also known as “Taiwan Tech.” At that time, the school reorganized itself into the five colleges of engineering, electrical and computer engineering, management, design, and liberal arts and social sciences.

Taiwan Tech has five campuses: the main Taipei campus and branch campuses at Tu-Cheng, Keelung, Gong-Guan and Chupei, with a combined total area of 29.44 hectares. The main campus, situated in a district of Taipei with convenient transportation and beautiful surroundings, covers an area of about 10 hectares.

Our vision is to build Taiwan Tech into an international applied research university producing high-tech and management personnel with the ability to compete on a global level, thus supporting the future growth of our nation and society.

Our overall goals are to employ multifaceted excellence, innovative expertise, technology integration, and holistic education on the platforms of intelligent green building technology and creative design, while recruiting internationally-renowned professors to help us achieve cutting-edge breakthroughs in all aspects of our teaching and research.

This will inspire the development of the entire university, neighbouring academic and research institutions, and local industry in the upgrading of our national ability to compete on a global stage.
