Striving continuously with perseverance for over forty years, the University has earned the reputation of becoming one of the most promising comprehensive universities in Taiwan. Currently it takes around 20,000 graduate and undergraduate students yearly in its seven Colleges (Engineering, Business, Sciences, Construction and Development, Information and Electrical Engineering, Humanities, Social Sciences and Finance). Its graduates of more than 150,000, working for governmental agencies and private enterprises, have contributed enormously to the overall economy-miracle of Taiwan.
In the contemporary era of high technology and knowledge-based economy, the acquiring and applying of knowledge should be specialized, diversified, and multi-functional. The University therefore has directed its construction toward renovating campus environment and facilities to cater for an e-learning era. The newly renovated digitalized Main Library adds to the traditional book-storing place with an active e-learning workshop. The new spirit of vitality is also seen in the establishment of many new innovative institutions, such as the Geographical Information System Research Center, the Construction Research Center, the Business Incubation Center, the Office of Technology Licensing, the E-Commerce Research Center, and the Nano-Technology Research Center.
