Unique, preeminent and foresight are three basic concepts inherent in the foundation of National Chung Cheng University to pursuit for the highest standard of academic excellence in high education. For the last 28 years, from the beginning with only five graduate institutes, Chinese Literature, Applied Mathematics, Social Welfare, Computer Sciences and Information Engineering, and International Economics, and with less than 50 graduate students, University has experienced unprecedented growth and transformation, as it accelerates its ambition to be an energetic comprehensive research and teaching national university, offering 29 bachelor, 45 master, and 29 doctorate degree programs to more than 12,000 students, along with its offering cores: humanities, sciences, social sciences, engineering, management, law, and education.
Besides owning the most advanced hardware and software equipments, we are the first university in Taiwan through the collaboration with the renowned international academic institutions to offer the internet courses internationally. By means of promoting internationalization, and of being the first university in Taiwan to operate the regional campus in the Southern Taiwan Science Park to build up the co-op relationship with high-tech manufactures, CCU achieves the links between academic researches and industrial developments. In addition to the cultivation of high-tech talents, our university aggressively creates the learning environment of human art, and possesses 787,500 more books and as well varieties of literature exhibitions, concerts and performances. The first Campus Residency Project of internationally renowned Cloud Gate at our university represents our emphasis and efforts in cultural life. Moreover, we, cooperating with the local community, present the seasonal activities of “Pineapple cultural festival” held each May, and the annual "Zijing Film Festival" held in each March, becoming two of our unique campus events. By the virtue of sharing resources with the local community, University has forged the highlights of local industrial cultures and fully retained the university legacy-aggressive, creative, moral, humane. In pursuit of truth and discovery of new invention in academic research, Chung Cheng has cultivated the rich humane temperament to contribute itself to the country and the society.
The founding history of the university is, though, not long, Chung Cheng has staffs and degree programs of finest quality, well-planned campus, stylish architecture and campus sights, and also maintains the spirit of pursuing of eminence, aggressiveness, and creation. With these, Chung Cheng has already emerged in Taiwan as one of the renowned comprehensive research universities, where two former faculties had been appointed as the ministers of education in the past 28 years. To prospect the future, we will aggressively enhance much better teach and research environment, and as well facilitate a close attachment to the objectives of international research and student mobility to strengthen the international perspectives and competitiveness for students to make Chung Cheng internationally renowned.
