National Tsing Hua University (NTHU)
National Tsing Hua University was established in Beijing in 1911 as Tsing Hua Academy. In 1956, National Tsing Hua University was re-established at its present location in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
Since its relocation, NTHU has developed into a comprehensive research university offering a full range of degree programs in science, technology, engineering, humanities, social sciences, and management. NTHU consistently ranks as one of the premier universities in East Asia, and is widely recognized as a leading incubator for future leaders.
Our outstanding alumni highlight the success of NTHU students, including Nobel Physics laureates Dr. Cheng-Ning Yang and Dr. Tsung-Dao Lee, Nobel Chemistry laureate Dr. Yuan-Tseh Lee, and Wolf Prize winner in mathematics Dr. Shiing-Shen Chern.
NTHU has seven colleges, 17 departments and 18 independent graduate institutes: the College of Science, Engineering, Nuclear Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Life Science, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and the College of Technology Management.
The Commission for General Education supervises the university’s general education curricula. NTHU emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach. In addition to upholding basic standards, undergraduate curricula are designed to maximize flexibility as well as integration. NTHU surpasses curricula norms, transcending collegiate and departmental boundaries.
