Established in 1989, Yuan Ze University may be young by traditional standards, yet it has been recognized as a model for newly emerging universities within the shortest period. As the first and the only university to win the National Quality Award in 2003, Yuan Ze received an award from the Ministry of Education for the Teaching Excellence Project in 2005. Successively, it has been designated by the MOE as one of the top 12 universities in Taiwan, receiving an award for the “Aim for the Top University and Elite Research Center Development Project” since 2005. Granted with the highest honor in teaching, research and administration, Yuan Ze has become a marvel of higher education, in Taiwan.
Currently, Yuan Ze has five colleges including the Colleges of Engineering, Informatics, Management, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Electrical and Communications Engineering. There are over 9,000 students with a 2:1 ratio between undergraduate and graduate students on campus. Aimed at housing key research centers in Taiwan, our Fuel Cell Center and Communications Research Centers have integrated all resources and recruited talents in all engineering-related departments at Yuan Ze through support from the Top Universities Project. With the success of these two centers, Yuan Ze also places a heavy focus on the promotion of overall teaching and research capacity. The College of Management has established the first EMBA program in Taiwan and all the courses in the Graduate School of Management are conducted in English to further connect our students to the international marketplace. The College of Informatics is the first college in Taiwan to adopt information as the core of its teaching and research. It emphasizes practical experience with the integration between technology and social studies. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is working closely with our College of General Studies to promote teaching and research in humanities, general education, and ethics.
The main theme of the University’s development strategy emphasizes differentiation and internationalization. Through differentiation in curriculum design and research, we will create our distinguishing characteristics and brand; while in recruiting outstanding foreign faculty and potential international students with the provision of favorable packages and scholarships/fellowships. The International Language and Culture Center offers Mandarin and cultural programs for international students; hosts various cultural activities; and promotes cultural exchange on campus.
As the youngest and most energetic university of Taiwan’s Top universities, we will continue to fully utilize our competitive advantages of “innovation,” “quality,” and “flexibility.” We provide a challenging environment for students to enjoy learning, develop their potentials and surpass themselves; for faculty to devote themselves to inspiring and mentoring their students and the pursuit of truth and academic excellence; and for staff to promote the quality of service and fulfill personal growth.
