 Introduction of Yuan Ze University

18.jpg

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 for its teaching and research. It emphasizes on 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.

Giving top priority to students in the areas of teaching and counseling, Yuan Ze emphasizes education in both creativity and ethics. Moreover, we are active in the nation’s pioneering “Classics 50 Reading Project,” “YeSir Mentorship Program” and promote all types of activities that will enrich students’ extracurricular studies. Founded by the Far Eastern Group, we have established close relationships with all of its subsidiaries to form an industrial and academic alliance. The internship plan for both domestic and international students can be fully realized through such a network. Based on the unique niche Yuan Ze has created, we provide added value to students and faculty members and expect ourselves to be the benchmark university in industry-academia collaboration.

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.

Where to Go?

R.jpgDaxi Tea.jpgBade Cypress.jpg
Republic of ChocolateDaxi Tea FactoryBade Bald Cypress Forest 
The outward appearance of the building looks like a bar of top-notched handcraft chocolate cut in half with the fillings flowing out. You can find interesting facts about chocolate in the education section, creative chocolate dishes in the gourmet section, chocolate products in the market section, and even have some hands-on experience in the DIY section.  The exterior of the factory was based on India's Darjeeling Tea Factory but with a touch of both Taiwanese and Japanese in its interior layout. Take a visit to the factory to get to know the process of tea-making, drink a cup of freshly brewed tea, and chillax in the golden oldies atmosphere. 

The 3-hectare forest consisting of green cypresses slowly turns into different shades of red starting from late fall. During mid-summer, the lush green bald cypress forest is accompanied by a pond of blooming lotuses. Come and take a walk in the cypress forest. Immerse in a forest bath. You will surely feel restored and rejuvenated at the end of the day.
