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 4,953 undergraduates and 4,259 graduate students with 336 full-time faculty.
NTUST now has six colleges in different areas, including College of Engineering, College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, College of Management, College of Design, College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and Honors College. 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. We also have graduate schools in engineering, automation and control, materials science and technology, electro-optical engineering, management, finance, design, and technical and vocational education.
