學校簡介 About Us

National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology (NKUST) was established on February 1, 2018, by the merger of three universities: National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences, National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology, and National Kaohsiung Marine University, becoming the largest technological university in Taiwan.

As a technology university, NKUST has incorporated the strengths of the three former universities -- strong connections with industries, innovation and entrepreneurship, and ocean technology – into the new university and realized synergies through integrating complementary resources and functions.

As the result of the merger, NKUST not only incorporates the strengths of the three universities—strong connections with industries, innovation and entrepreneurship, and ocean technologies—into the new university, but it also has great advantages in the aspects of vast campuses, strong human resources, complementary resources, and diverse cultural assets, which makes a lively and vigorous academic community and learning environment for students.

With the merger, the university hopes to integrate all the resources and to cultivate more excellent technological professionals, and lead the business and industry development in southern Taiwan.

Features

Making strong connections with industries, NKUST continues to forge ahead in establishing long-term collaborations with regional industries in engineering fields such as precision machinery, civil engineering, chemical and materials engineering, mold engineering, electrical engineering, and electronics engineering. To meet the demands of global trends, the university actively upholds education in four revolutionary domains, including creativity, innovation, creation, and entrepreneurship and offers many academic and practical courses such as Smart Commerce and other cross-disciplinary courses. The university put a strong emphasis

on cultivating students’ creativity, practical skills, cross-disciplinary abilities, and employment competitiveness. In addition, the university has the most comprehensive ocean science and technology related departments, thus providing a solid foundation for research and development for quality ocean technology academia-industry collaboration. With a strong focus in ocean technology, NKUST is the only technological university in Taiwan that fosters talents and professionals in ocean industries.
