Introduction of University
National Pingtung University of Science and Technology (NPUST) was founded in 1924
under the name of "Kaohsiung State Pingtung Extension School of Agriculture."
Subsequently in 1928, this school was expanded and renamed as "Kaohsiung State Pingtung
Agricultural School". After Taiwan was liberated from Japanese colonial rule in August 1945,
this school again changed her name to "Taiwan Provincial Pingtung Agricultural Vocational
School of Agriculture" in November of that year. This school was then upgraded to "Taiwan
Provincial Institute of Agriculture" in 1954, enabling a subsequent integration of this Institute
with the Pingtung Agricultural Vocational High school in 1963. After this integration, the
Institute went through a series of upgrades and name changes, including "Taiwan Provincial
Pingtung Institute of Agriculture" in 1964, "National Pingtung Institute of Agriculture" in
July 1981, "National Pingtung Polytechnic Institute" in July 1991, and then the "National
Pingtung University of Science and Technology" in August 1997. Currently NPUST has a
total of 27 departments and 10 graduate institutes offering 28 Master's degrees and 7 Doctoral
programs. These departments and graduate institutes are distributed among four colleges:
agriculture, engineering, management, and humanities and social sciences.
NPUST's undergraduate school currently offers baccalaureate degrees to graduates of
a four-year program and a two-year program. The four-year program admits students
graduating from vocational high schools or their equivalents, while the two-year program
admits students graduating from vocational institutes and their equivalents. NPUST has also
established a night school to admit students with at least one year's work experience.
NPUST's graduate school offers master and doctoral degrees in more than thirty
disciplines that cover the Colleges of Agriculture, Engineering, Management, as well as
Humanities and Social Science. A candidate to a master's degree requires a bachelor's degree
in a related field; whereas, the doctoral degree is offered to researchers and professionals with
a master's degree from any university. Graduate programs at NPUST also provide opportunity
of part-time study during weekends for those with at least one-year work experience while
holding current job active.
Moving towards specialized research university, NPUST actively pursues her
academic excellence to become one of the key academic bastions in the Asia-Pacific Region.
In addition to offering lectures in Chinese, NPUST also offers 106 credit hours of courses in
English. In positioning herself to become one of the world's leading academic institutions,
NPUST established linkage with more than 30 world renowned universities through various
academic exchanges, distance education, exchanges of faculty and students, sharing of
resources, and jointly conducting research.
-1-
The three main educational goals of NPUST are elaborated as follows:
Spiritualization – Through education, nurturing and warm caring, NPUST's students are
positively influenced to develop a healthy and complete personality. NPUST's students are
educated to become not only a competent professional but also a worthy member of the
society with strong social responsibilities and a civilized person with fine intellectual and
aesthetic tastes.
Professionalization – Constantly aware of the needs of labor markets, NPUST trains
students to possess solid abilities to work, to learn and to create or invent to meet the demands
of labor markets. Students are encouraged to pursue careers in scientific or technological
research and development or in business management so as to enhance the promotion of
industries in the nation.
Internationalization – In keeping with the trend of internationalization, NPUST's students
are cultivated to acquire intellectual and aesthetic qualities enabling them to establish a strong
foothold in the global community. The quality to be acquired includes improving international
language ability, enhancing knowledge of international society, and understanding the
development of international politics and economics. The final goal is to enable students to
become more competitive internationally.
