NCKU was a major participant in the much-lauded first Taiwan Economic Miracle decades ago, and now, as the newest wave of industrial transformation approaches, NCKU still plays a central role in areas ranging from alternative energy and the quantum sciences to smart medicine and cultural and heritage conservation.
NCKU aspires to be the pride of Taiwan and an inspiration to Tainan, an institution that makes major contributions to society thanks to its pragmatic academic climate, solid research strengths, international-caliber learning environment, innovative interdisciplinary studies and research, and highly effective industry-academia collaborations.
NCKU students, educators, and alumni each clearly demonstrate their value within the global community. Through technological inventions and a knowledge-based culture founded upon ethical conduct, care for the disadvantaged, and contributing to the betterment of society, NCKU people are actively working for the common future of humanity.
NCKU strives to make an impact by contributing to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We utilize SDG keyword mapping as a basis for developing SDG tools by conducting in-depth analysis of the quantitative data coming out of the research being done at various colleges in relation to the impact on resource abundance and applicability of SDG practices.
