Universities in Hsinchu
Nanyang College, founded by Hsuan-Wai Sheng in 1896, was the former manifestation of present day NCTU. It was one of the new-style institutions of higher learning in Asia. After the National Government moved to Taiwan, the school was relocated in Hsinchu City in 1958 under the recommendation and support of the American alumni and the leadership of the former University President Hung-Hsun Ling.
NTHU has established a glorious tradition of persistently pursuing knowledge, meticulously nurturing youth and strongly devoting to enrich our society in particular and humanity in general. To these ends, we developed comprehensive academic programs ranging from arts, economics, literature, and politics to various disciplines in natural sciences and engineering.
