About National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology (NKUST)

National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology (NKUST) was established in 2018 by the merger of National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences, National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology, and National Kaohsiung University of Ocean Science and Technology. This merger makes NKUST the largest university of science and technology in Taiwan, with over 28,000 students on five campuses.

As the result of the merger, NKUST incorporates the distinct strengths—strong connections with industries, innovation and entrepreneurship, and oceanic technologies—of the three universities into the new university. The vast campuses, abundant human resources, and diverse cultural assets also make NKUST a vigorous academic community for students and faculty members. 

With the educational philosophy of "creating values together with people-oriented ideology," NKUST aims to become the think tank of Kaohsiung and the base for Taiwan's South-bound development. With these ambitions, NKUST will become an international university and an educational model in Taiwan.
