Introduction of University

National Pingtung University of Science and Technology (NPUST) was founded in 1924 under the name of "Kaohsiung State Pingtung Extension School of Agriculture." Subsequently in 1928, this school was expanded and renamed as "Kaohsiung State Pingtung Agricultural School". After Taiwan was liberated from Japanese colonial rule in August 1945, this school again changed her name to "Taiwan Provincial Pingtung Agricultural Vocational School of Agriculture" in November of that year. This school was then upgraded to "Taiwan Provincial Institute of Agriculture" in 1954, enabling a subsequent integration of this Institute with the Pingtung Agricultural Vocational High school in 1963. After this integration, the Institute went through a series of upgrades and name changes, including "Taiwan Provincial Pingtung Institute of Agriculture" in 1964, "National Pingtung Institute of Agriculture" in July 1981, "National Pingtung Polytechnic Institute" in July 1991, and then the "National Pingtung University of Science and Technology" in August 1997. Currently NPUST has a total of 27 departments and 10 graduate institutes offering 28 Master's degrees and 7 Doctoral programs. These departments and graduate institutes are distributed among four colleges: agriculture, engineering, management, and humanities and social sciences.

 NPUST's undergraduate school currently offers baccalaureate degrees to graduates of a four-year program and a two-year program. The four-year program admits students graduating from vocational high schools or their equivalents, while the two-year program admits students graduating from vocational institutes and their equivalents. NPUST has also established a night school to admit students with at least one year's work experience.

 NPUST's graduate school offers master and doctoral degrees in more than thirty disciplines that cover the Colleges of Agriculture, Engineering, Management, as well as Humanities and Social Science. A candidate to a master's degree requires a bachelor's degree in a related field; whereas, the doctoral degree is offered to researchers and professionals with a master's degree from any university. Graduate programs at NPUST also provide opportunity of part-time study during weekends for those with at least one-year work experience while holding current job active.

 Moving towards specialized research university, NPUST actively pursues her academic excellence to become one of the key academic bastions in the Asia-Pacific Region. In addition to offering lectures in Chinese, NPUST also offers 106 credit hours of courses in English. In positioning herself to become one of the world's leading academic institutions, NPUST established linkage with more than 30 world renowned universities through various academic exchanges, distance education, exchanges of faculty and students, sharing of resources, and jointly conducting research.

The three main educational goals of NPUST are elaborated as follows:

Spiritualization – Through education, nurturing and warm caring, NPUST's students are positively influenced to develop a healthy and complete personality. NPUST's students are educated to become not only a competent professional but also a worthy member of the society with strong social responsibilities and a civilized person with fine intellectual and aesthetic tastes.

Professionalization – Constantly aware of the needs of labor markets, NPUST trains students to possess solid abilities to work, to learn and to create or invent to meet the demands of labor markets. Students are encouraged to pursue careers in scientific or technological research and development or in business management so as to enhance the promotion of industries in the nation.

Internationalization – In keeping with the trend of internationalization, NPUST's students are cultivated to acquire intellectual and aesthetic qualities enabling them to establish a strong foothold in the global community. The quality to be acquired includes improving international language ability, enhancing knowledge of international society, and understanding the development of international politics and economics. The final goal is to enable students to become more competitive internationally.

Introduction of College of International Studies

All the courses in College of International Studies were taught in English, and it initiated the new era of internationalize teaching in NPUST.

Department of Agriculture and Intl. Organization (DTAIC) and Chinese Language Center are two teaching organizations which have been established for many years. DTAIC has cooperated with Taiwan ICDF and Council of Agriculture in researching the related agriculture and organism in tropical are, and positively cultivated the agricultural skilled talent of friend country since 1998. Furthermore, it has cultivated 172 graduates in degree of bachelor, master and doctor from 38 countries; there are 54 Bachelors, 39 Masters and 31 Doctors from tropical area in Asian Pacific (Thailand, Vietnam, Mongolia and Malaysia), Africa (Gambia and Malawi) and America (Salvador, Belize, Nicaragua and Dominican). Masters and Doctors can choose to major in the Research Institute of Plant Industry, Forestry, Aquaculture, Animal Science, Plant Medicine, Wood Science and Design, Food Science, Agribusiness Management, and Veterinary Medicine according to their interests or researching fields. This is also the feature of DTAIC, as well as the precedent of cultivating internationalize foreign Masters and Doctors in Taiwan, and the recognition obtained from domestic and foreign countries. On the other hand, Chinese Language Center has also been adopted the investigation of offshore recruitment from the Educational Ministry recently, and is further going to recruit students and develop the Chinese Language teaching courses for foreign students simultaneously.

In the future, College of International Studies will has organized new Food International Master Degree of courses, Solar Phonics International Master Degree of courses, Soil and hydraulic International Master Degree of courses, Multiple Culture and Education Master Degree of courses and Agricultural Business International Master Degree of courses.
