Introduction of University

National Taiwan Ocean University (NTOU) was established in 1953 as Provincial Taiwan Maritime Technology. During the period, 1953 to 1964 the college was supported by the Taiwan Provincial Government of the Republic of China (ROC). In 1979, we became a national institution, and were renamed as the National Taiwan College of Marine Science and Technology. A decade later, 1989, the college became a full-fledged university. At present, NTOU has six colleges-Maritime Science and Management, Life Sciences, Ocean Science and Resource, Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as well as Humanities and Social Sciences. These Colleges house a total of 28 undergraduate departments and graduate institutes. As we look at the progress over the last 58 years, the University has undergone great growth and change and has been now recognized as one of the nations most important centers of learning and scholarship, especially in the marine sciences and maritime studies. Responding to the changing needs of society and the widening interests of our students, we are developing into a comprehensive university with a unique maritime focus. We aim to be an internationally known institution of higher education. Toward this end, our social sciences and liberal arts programs are developing as a core part of education at NTOU. The University is rapidly moving toward providing a positive learning environment and culture for intellectual and personal growth, with ocean interests as our unique characteristic.
