About Feng Chia University

Feng Chia University (FCU) was founded in 1961 in the city of Taichung on the west coast of Taiwan. Originally called the Feng Chia College of Engineering and Business, university status was granted in 1980. Since then FCU has grown in terms of student numbers and in scope to become one of the most successful universities in Taiwan.

The university currently boasts eight schools and colleges teaching a diverse range of business and engineering programmes and offering undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral degree programs. FCU is currently expanding its English language taught programs, especially in international business qualifications.

The main FCU campus is a spacious network of leafy quads and plazas surrounded by academic buildings in the heart of the Xitun district near central Taichung.

FCU prides itself on the quality of its published research papers especially in the fields of engineering, materials science and computer science. The university is one of the world leaders on bio-hydrogen fuel research.

Polling of executives from Taiwan’s top 1,000 businesses has consistently placed FCU among the top ten universities in Taiwan in terms of the quality of its graduates over the last eight years. The university has also consistently won government grants on the strength of its teaching and research.

The university also has close ties to industry and commerce offering professional internship opportunities through its graduate scheme as well as fostering industry partnerships and running its own incubator to help students turn their ideas into viable businesses.

Among many annual sporting events FCUs tug of war competition is a time-honoured tradition with a 40-year history that embodies the spirit of teamwork and competition and serves as a bond between students, faculty and alumni.
