About National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology

National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology is the largest technological university in Taiwan. It was founded in 2018 when National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences, National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology, and National Kaohsiung Marine University merged together.

The university is located in Kaohsiung, the largest city in southern Taiwan. The university has five campuses located across Kaohsiung: First Campus, Jiangong Campus, Nanzih Campus, Cijin Campus, and Yanchao Campus.

The university has developed three strengths from its former universities: strong connections with industries, innovation and entrepreneurship, and ocean technology. These remain an important aspect of the university’s teaching and research.

Academically the university is organised into nine colleges: electrical engineering and computer science, engineering, finance and banking, foreign languages, humanities and social sciences, hydrosphere science, management, marine commerce, and maritime. There is also the Business Intelligence School. Each college offers a range of both undergraduate and graduate degree programmes.

A number of international students study at the university every year. The university offers short term Chinese language training for all international students every semester.

In 2018 the university was awarded eight U-Start Innovation and Entrepreneurship Projects from the Youth Development Administration. In the same year the Ministry of Education provided the university with funding to participate in two projects: the Higher Education Sprout Project and the University Social Responsibility Project.

Founded in the 17th century, the city of Kaohsiung has become the economic and political centre of southern Taiwan. It is also home to several key industries such as shipbuilding, freight transport, manufacturing, oil refining and steel making.
