National Taiwan University of Science and Technology

The National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan Tech), under the outstanding leadership of successive presidents, has been recognized by all sectors of society for its academic and practical achievements in such areas as cooperation with industry, promotion of entrepreneurship, and technology licensing. We are focusing our efforts on structuring a campus that nurtures creativity, with a vision of building a world-class university through international outreach and applied research.



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 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 bachelor’s degree-level engineers and managers. In 1979 and 1982, NTIT added master’s and doctoral programs, respectively.


Through 38 years of growth and evolution, Taiwan Tech has been recognized for its academic and practical achievements in such areas as cooperation with industry, promotion of entrepreneurship and technology licensing.

Taiwan Tech envisions itself as an international applied research university. The research achievements of Taiwan Tech's faculty and students have great commercial potential, and Taiwan Tech has derived considerable income from its intellectual property rights, technology transfers, and licensing fees, placing Taiwan Tech in the first rank of Taiwan's universitites for its reserach capabilities.

Student services

Taiwan is still seen by many countries as a prime source of students seeking an international education, but while thirty years ago this resulted in a "brain drain" of Taiwan's young talent to other countries, the "drain" has now changed to an "exchange" with faculty and students traveling in both directions for research, degree programs, and "international experience". Facilitating this exchange has involved Taiwan's educational institutions in many changes to remove unnecessary obstacles and provide necessary support.

Library services

Opened in March 1975, the Library has an unbroken history of offering services for academic research and teaching resources. The Library, with 5,627 square meters of floor space and about 630 seats in its reading facilities, encompasses three sections: Acquisition & Cataloguing, Periodicals & Circulation and System Information. 

ICT services

The ComputerCenter has provided computer resources to faculty, stuff, and students for education and research since 1976. We hope to give a network environment with good services and rich information.

There are four computer classrooms for educational training, multimedia teaching, internet application, and computer aided programming lectures.

Medical services

Student clubs

There are also several associations of local students who are interested in interacting with and helping our international students on campus. These associations are eager to help newly arrived international students settle into their new life at NTUST and deal with all the procedures involved in establishing one’s student status, as well as helping the international student associations with the arrangements for their various activities. This interaction is the real “heart” of NTUST’s internationalization. 

Student Reviews

Dreams come true.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It has been a privileged to study in this school. Having given a chance to live and study abroad under the school's scholarship was a dream come true. Learning was fun as the teachers and students are open to diverse ideas. Taiwan (Taipei, specifically) is a beautiful country with one of the most friendliest locals I know. It's safe, convenient, and clean.
