National Taiwan University of Science and Technology Admission for Fall 2021

The National Taiwan University of Science and Technology was founded on August 1, 1974, as the National Taiwan Institute of Technology (NTIT). It was the first higher education institution of its kind within our nation’s technical and vocational education system. By extending this system to the highest level, this new school was intended to meet the need created by our rapid economic and industrial development for highly trained bachelor’s degree-level engineers and managers. In 1979 and 1982, NTIT added master’s and doctoral programs, respectively. On August 1, 1997, NTIT was upgraded to university status and changed its name to the  “National Taiwan University of Science and Technology,” also known as “Taiwan Tech.” At that time, the school reorganized itself into five colleges. After thirty years of growth and evolution, currently, Taiwan Tech is comprised of six colleges, including engineering, electrical and computer engineering, management, design, liberal arts & social sciences, and applied science. Taiwan Tech has five campuses: the main Taipei campus and branch campuses at Tu-Cheng, Keelung, Gong-Guan, and Chupei, with a combined total area of 29.44 hectares. The main campus, situated in a district of Taipei with convenient transportation and beautiful surroundings, covers an area of about 10 hectares. Current enrollment includes 5,605 undergraduates and 4,902 graduate students with 415 full-time faculties. Our vision is to build Taiwan Tech into an international applied research university producing high-tech and management personnel with the ability to compete on a global level, thus supporting the future growth of our nation and society. Our overall goals are to employ multifaceted excellence, innovative expertise, technology integration, and holistic education on the platforms of intelligent green building technology and creative design while recruiting internationally-renowned professors to help us achieve cutting-edge breakthroughs in all aspects of our teaching and research. This will inspire the development of the entire university, neighboring academic and research institutions, and local industry in the upgrading of our national ability to compete on a global stage.

1. NTUST Scholarship

Graduate students from abroad apply for admission to our English-taught programs for master’s and doctoral degrees as full-time students may apply for one year’s scholarship; continuation of the scholarship depends on the student’s academic and research performance. The type of NTUST scholarship will be determined by the department based on the applicant’s qualifications. For scholarship recipients, tuition and fees are waived for each year of the scholarship. Applicants could apply for this scholarship through the admission application system. For further information, please refer to the following website:

** For the NTUST scholarship recipient, both those receiving a full monthly stipend and those with a partial monthly stipend, the department or thesis advisor must provide NTD2,000 of the monthly stipend to master’s students and NTD3,000 of the monthly stipend to doctoral students, with the remaining portion of the stipend provided by the university. This regulation will be applied beginning from the second year of master’s and doctoral degree students, continuing into the third year of doctoral degree students; some of the departments may put this policy into practice starting from the first year. For example: a master’s degree student with a full monthly stipend will receive NTD2, 000 from the department and NTD10, 000 from the university.
