介紹

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. Distinguished Professor Chi-Ming Hsu of the Department of Safety, Health, and Environmental Engineering, National Yunlin University of Science and Technology (hereinafter referred to as YunTech), was elected as a fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers in 2016. Professor Chi-Ming Hsu won the Outstanding Research Award of the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2018. At YunTech, over 91% of the teaching staff has hands-on experience, and more than 70% engage in industry-university cooperation. Consequently, YunTech takes the lead in the achievements of the industry-and-university cooperation in Taiwan. According to the 2019 University Impact Rankings announced by Times Higher Education, the ranking of its total score fell between No. 101 and No. 200 worldwide.

 

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”. For the bachelor’s degree program of the academic year 2018-2019 at YunTech, the freshmen registration rate and the dropout reduction rate were ranked in the top 5% in Taiwan. In terms of the stability rate of schooling published by the Ministry of Education, YunTech has ranked second in Taiwan, right after the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. In addition, the College of Management of YunTech has been re-accredited for its performance in the past five years by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Therefore, YunTech is the first university of science and technology that has passed AACSB’s re-accreditation in Taiwan, surpassing Taiwan University of Science and Technology in this respect.
