School introduction

     The predecessor of National Pingtung University of Science and Technology (NPUST) was founded under the name of Kaohsiung District Pingtung Extension School of Agriculture in Japanese Taisho Year 10 (1924) during the period of Japanese colonial rule in Taiwan. In 1997, the institute along with National Taiwan Institute of Technology and National Yunlin Institute of Technology took the lead in being reformed as universities of science and technology. At each stage of the development of Taiwan’s technical and vocational education system, NPUST always occupied the top position.

     National Pingtung University of Science and Technology offers an excellent opportunity for students to study a wide range of subjects with well developed departments and graduate institutes in four academic colleges including Agriculture, Engineering, Management, and Humanities and Social Sciences. In order to integrate theory with hands-on learning opportunities, NPUST has well equipped teaching and practice facilities, a library comprising over 300,000 volumes of books, access to various electronic databases and audio-video facilities, and optical fiber and wireless internet network connectivity to every corner on campus. The university also houses the NationalBotanical Garden , the Center for Wildlife Conservation and Management, the Art and Culture Industry Innovation and IncubationCenter , various exhibition farms, specimen collection centers, and a large, well equipped gymnasium. NPUST is an excellent place that provides a comprehensive teaching-learning community for our faculty and students.

     Like other universities, on Office of Student Affairs offers services to every student at NPUST in the following sections: Life Guidance Section, Extracurricular Activities on Section, Sanitation & Health Care Section, and Student Counseling Section. Although our routine services are quite similar to other universities’, we make every effort to make them unique and effective.

     NPUST is a science and technology institution with a long history of more than 80 years. With the aim of fulfilling the mission of professional education, the Office of Research and Development (ORD) of the university is not only promoting basic research on campus, but also encouraging our faculty to be involved in industry-academia collaboration. In order to carry out a variety of services for industry-academia collaboration, we have set up a number of specialized research centers at the university level or college level on campus, and established various technological service centers in academic departments or graduate institutes.

     NPUST has been collaborating with the International Cooperation and Development Fund (ICDF) since 1998 to provide full scholarships and English programs to foreign students from countries that have a diplomatic relationship with Taiwan . NPUST also grants baccalaureate, master and doctoral degrees to foreign students who receive scholarship from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education, and the National Science Council. To further enhance the internationalization of NPUST, the university also offers full scholarships to foreign students from countries that do not have a diplomatic relationship with Taiwan . Up through 2009, NPUST has recruited more than 200 foreign students. At the beginning, the source of international students was from Africa and Central and South America , and has since extended to Oceania and Europe . After graduation, many students have good performance in research and administration, and help to promote our diplomatic relationship with foreign countries.
