National Central University (NCU) is an university with long-standing traditions in Taiwan. Founded in Nanjing in 1915, NCU was the leading academic center in the Southeast China; the phrase “North the Peking University; South the Central University” at that time revealed the significance of NCU. NCU was later re-established in Taiwan in 1962 and started the development on the basis of Geophysics. After our endeavor over 50 years, NCU has expanded its school size and had great achievements both in academic and research development. NCU is now one of the leading universities in Taiwan.

Located in Zhongli, NCU covers an area of 62 hectares. We have approximately 12,000 students, and there are 8 colleges, 26 departments, 19 graduate institutes, 6 university-level research centers and one united research center, the Office of Teaching Centers (OTC), and the affiliated Zhongli Senior High School. NCU is truly a comprehensive university of rich scientific and humanistic facilities.

In addition to constantly making breakthroughs in academic fields, NCU puts emphasis on holistic education, providing students with a platform for self-learning and the realization of their creativity. We also conduct industry-university collaboration and interaction to enable students to engage themselves in autonomous learning, to equip them with professional skills, and to help them develop multiple interests during their study at NCU.

NCU is a campus of tranquility with numerous pine trees scattering over the place. On the wave of global green economy, NCU builds an environment-friendly green campus based on our solid foundations of sustainable development. Meanwhile, the first Kunqu Museum in Taiwan will be open to the public in 2017. The museum symbolizes the abundant resources in humanities and also builds a bridge between the humanities and sciences for the faculty and students.

“Sincerity in knowledge; simplicity in life” is the motto of NCU, and it is the spirit that we expect all our students to keep in mind for a lifetime. In addition to achieving outstanding performances in their professions, students should be able to think reflexively, fit into the society maturely and considerately, and keep the down-to-earth attitude of NCU. We aim to lead our faculty and students to create a learning environment with both strong humanistic concerns and academic research on this beautiful and culturally-rich campus, to provide students with global vision and diverse learning experiences, and to become one of the world’s top universities with unique characteristics.
