National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) was originally founded in Shanghai in 1896 under the name of Nanyang College, and it shares the same origin as the Jiaotong Universities in mainland China. In 1958, NCTU was re-established in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The University has been the forerunner of science and technology. Subsequently, it has laid a firm foundation for the Hsinchu Science Park (HSP), the “Silicon Valley” of Taiwan.
NCTU is situated at the core of Taiwan’s high-tech industry, i.e., Hsinchu Science Park, making it an optimal hub of technological practices and academic exchanges for NCTU students. Moreover, NCTU has a distinguished alumni network, and nearly two-thirds of the CEOs and general managers in the Park are NCTU alumni.
