World University Rankings 2014-15
The National Taiwan University of Science and Technology was established on August 1, 1974, as the first higher education institution of its kind within our nation’s technical and vocational education system. By extending this system to the highest level, this new school was intended to meet the need created by our rapid economic and industrial development for highly trained engineers and managers.
The main campus, located in Taipei at 43 Keelung Rd., Sec. 4, covers an area of about 10 hectares, while the whole campuses cover up to 44.5 hectares. Current enrollment includes 5,253 undergraduates and 4,628 graduate students with 533 full-time faculty. On attaining university status in 1997, the school reorganized itself into the following five colleges: engineering, electrical and computer engineering, management, design, and liberal arts and social sciences.
Our departments include mechanical engineering, polymer engineering, construction engineering, chemical engineering, electronic engineering, electrical engineering, computer science and information engineering, industrial management, business administration, information management, architecture, industrial and commercial design,and applied foreign languages.
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. To date, a total of 68,889 students have graduated from the university’s undergraduate and graduate programs and are employed all over Taiwan. Among these graduates, the overwhelming majority have devoted themselves to the various aspects of our nation’s economic development, to which many of our alumni are making important contributions. Because our graduates combine a solid theoretical foundation, abundant practical experience, and a professional attitude to their work, they are much in demand with both public and private enterprises.
