Basic Info

National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) is one of Taiwan’s best universities in recognized globally for world class research and teaching. NCTU has been awarded Prize of Excellence in the Evaluation of Campus Internationalization by the Ministry of Education of R.O.C. (Taiwan) in 2014. NCTU is the first University received this Prize in Taiwan.
NCTU had become the forerunner of science and technology in Taiwan and laid a firm foundation for the Hsinchu Science Park, the “Silicon Valley” of Taiwan. NCTU has made significant contributions to both academia sciences and industrial technologies. A consequence of this has been the huge contribution the University has made to the economic development and consequent prosperity of Taiwan. An example of this is the prominent positions many of NCTU’s alumni hold in high-tech companies, as for example, Dr Stan Shih, the founder of the Acer Group, the largest manufacturer of notebook computers in the world, and Dr F. C. Tseng, vice-chairman of TSMC, the largest semi-conduction manufacturer in the world.
At NCTU, we provide international students with an excellent learning and research environment. NCTU boasts one of the most picturesque campuses in Taiwan, with delightful gardens with marvelous sculptures and artworks by prominent Taiwanese artists. English-taught courses are offered in all eleven colleges, while Chinese language courses are available for international students free of charge. Numerous scholarships are available for outstanding admittees. International students may also spend a semester or year abroad in our partner universities around the world.
