We go further, faster when we go together

At NCKU, we bring together students from around the world and help them develop the pragmatic problem-solving skills necessary to use their expertise on the global stage. We aim to develop a multicultural international environment on campus, and ultimately be able to build a strong international network dedicated to solving global issues.

Ways of Collaborating

Consider us your colleagues in Taiwan. We work with University and Institutional Partners in Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia in a wide variety of ways, from university-wide agreements and co-delivery of degrees to course specific student and staff exchanges. We are always looking to expand our network and welcome your interests. 

Our working culture is pragmatic, open and absolutely committed to research and learning opportunities of the highest integrity and with the greatest potential to affect significant positive change. 

Collaborating with NCKU

Co-delivery of degrees

Purdue University

The NCKU-Purdue partnership has been established since 1950 with USAID initiatives for economic development and technology enhancement in Taiwan. Purdue supported NCKU with infrastructure, laboratories, and faculty capability development. Purdue University is a valuable partner and one of the important reasons that NCKU has achieved its status as a top-tier university.
