National Taiwan University of Science and Technology was established on August 1, 1974, under the name National Taiwan Institute of Technology (NTIT). The National Taiwan University of Science and Technology was the first polytechnic institution in Taiwan’s education system, specializing in technical and vocational education. This institution aimed to produce effective students for the rapid economic and industrial development needs of Taiwan. It also focused on providing excellent training and education concerning engineering and management fields for the undergraduate level. Later on, in 1979 and 1982, NTIT expanded its curriculum and implemented teaching programs at the master’s and doctoral levels accordingly.
On August 1, 1997, NTIT was elevated to university status and changed its name to “National Taiwan University of Science and Technology,” commonly known as “Taiwan Tech.”
Taiwan Tech contains 5 campuses. The main campus is located in Taipei, and other branches are located in Tu-Cheng, Keelung, Gong-Guan and Chupei. The main campus, situated in the beautiful environment of Taipei, has convenient transport links and covers approximately 10 hectares. Currently, there are 5,605 undergraduate students, 4,902 graduate students, and 415 full-time faculty members.
The vision is to develop Taiwan Tech into a globally recognized applied research university that produces highly skilled personnel in the field of advanced technology and capable management, enabling them to compete on the global stage. This will contribute to the growth of the nation and society in the future.
The overall goals of Taiwan Tech are to excel in multiple domains, expertise in innovation, technology integration, and holistic education on the platform of green intelligent buildings and creative design.
Taiwan Tech also strives to recruit international professors who can contribute to both teaching and research. These factors serve as inspiration for the overall development of the university, fostering close collaboration between educational and research institutions as well as local industries. This collaboration aims to enhance Taiwan’s national competitiveness on the global stage, both in terms of educational and research excellence and in elevating the capabilities of local industries.
