Introduction

National Yunlin University of Science and Technology (YunTech) was founded in 1991. Yuntech is constituted of 5 colleges, namely College of Engineering, College of Management, College of Design, College of Humanities and Applied Science, and College of Future. Through joint effort, the School currently offers 22 Departments, 26 Master Programs, and 13 Doctoral Programs. Nearly 10,000 students have chosen to pursue their education here. More than half of our teachers and instructors have acquired Doctoral qualifications from prestigious universities in Europe, United States, and Japan. In particular, Dr. Jung-Chuan Chou (Department of Electronic Engineering) is named Honorary Fellow of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine, Dr. Mei-Hsin Wang (Graduate School of Material Science) is named Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry UK, and Dr. Chi-Min Shu (Department and Graduate School of Safety Health and Environmental Engineering) was chosen as Fellow of American Institute of Chemical Engineers in 2016. Over 81% of our teachers have acquired practical experiences. As more than 70% of our teachers have devoted time and effort into industry-academy cooperation, the School has become a leading paradigm in industry-academy cooperation nationwide.

 

Innovative Education System

In terms of teaching, YunTech is focused on fostering and nurturing interdisciplinary talents. For this reason, YunTech has developed interdisciplinary industrial curriculum modules with the collective efforts from inter-departmental colleges, the PBL Center and College of Future. From the beginning of their freshman year, our students participate in the Freshman Project to study industrial knowledge and professional skills on campus. Their knowledge and skills mature progressively throughout the years. Moreover, the School is also committed to the development of PBL (problem-based learning) curriculum. PBL curriculum is designed to integrate with practical topics in each department. Talents are nurtured and trained through importing actual industrial and communal issues and the design of practical courses. YunTech endeavors to build an innovative atypical education system and promote College of Future. Through the design of maker space, course recruitment platform, self-directed learning, micro credits, deepen student learning course, X+1 course, and singularity module course, along with the support of a four-fold counselling team, we intend to provide assistance to students in developing IEP (Individualized Education Program) learning plans, gradually establish student-coordinated self-made IEP curriculum, and encourage them to expand their horizons globally. With these endeavors, we sincerely hope to establish YunTech as a new teaching system that “focuses on student learning, aims for adaptive development, uses educational innovation as a strategy, and adopts the society and industry as fields of learning”.


School Features and Competition Awards

“The needs of any student should not be ignored, and the university of science and technology should be connected to the industry.” Yuntech endeavors to achieve such mission through integrating the innovative system of our College of Future and the innovative energy of the Yuntech Industrial Technology Research Institute. The School aims to build a talent-nurturing educational environment and a mechanism to link research and development outcome with new business ventures. We intend to resolve domestic, industrial, social and global issues through the use of educational and R&D resources. We will continue to strive forward with innovation and transformation as our main strategy in order to achieve our goal as becoming a “pragmatic and practical paragon of all universities of science and technology”.
