Pursue Excellence, Success follows

  CYUT is situated in the Wu-Fong District in Central Taiwan, full of incredibly natural beauty with ubiquitous elegance and grace. Irrigated by historical and cultural soil, CYUT provides students with an environment combined with higher education cradle and well-equipped campus. Compared to famous universities with more than one hundred years, CYUT is a relatively new 22-year-old university with outstanding ambitions to develop academic and technological talents, achievements, and resources. We are now emerging as a major academic powerhouse in Taiwan. Our university title, Chaoyang, meaning facing the rising sun, creates a self-image of aggressive studies, large-scale development, perfect rules and value systems. Because of incessant digging, CYUT has been trying to create various kinds of miracles in the face of international cultural impacts in the global village.
  Globalization is an inevitable phenomenon for us to re-consider the possibilities of individualism, free wills of labor ideology, and choices of personal life-style. In the era of Internet, the development of higher education in different countries deserve our scrupulous consideration of oceans of problems, such as how to promote and upgrade universities, how to create mutual communication among multi-cultural movements on the campus, how to incorporate professional cross-cultural outputs, and how to keep abreast of international tendency. After 22 years of endeavors, CYUT has grown up and has navigated toward a closer connection and link with internationalization.
  Due to sharp decline of birth rate, Taiwan is now facing serious social and educational crises. In the 12 years to come, the number of college students dwindles. Thus, we have to take advantage of all possible facilities and resources to make both ends meet and then to create the biggest possible profits for the lasting survival of our university. By means of internationalization, we can cooperate with and guide other institutions of higher education in other countries to cultivate, to educate, to develop, and to employ students with talents. In the near future, we have to accelerate our pace to offer more educational opportunities to students from south-eastern Asia. Like the past five years, we have tried our best to recruit, to guide and to train students from Mainland China. Both strategies are of great importance. Besides, we still have to expand our Thousand-Student-Overseas-Learning-Plan as a way to make our students understand foreign cultures both economically and financially. The more our students can have a better understanding of overseas economy and life-style, the more progress our students will make to let our society a better one. Namely, the life force in Taiwan is closely intertwined with the supply and demand of international commodity.
  About course arrangement, CYUT has performed teaching quality guarantee system for many years and has become the paradigm among universities in both Taiwan and Mainland China. About students' life guidance, every class instructor is supposed to help students solve various kinds of problems they encounter. Both elite and handicapped students can also receive extra care from their instructors. The mutual interaction among instructors and students can intensify harmony on the campus. Our internship system helps students build a seamless connection between campus life and career employment. Our motto is that the moment students graduate, they can be employed; the moment they are employed, they are well-equipped. Some students even participate in academic-industrial projects with their teachers to learn, to research, and to develop, and to achieve many results and outcomes.
  In order to make administrative affairs efficient, we strengthen our teaching as well as R&D and stay up-to-date with many universities in highly industrialized countries because of our terrific campus culture and teamwork skills. Now CYUT is ranked among top world 1,000 by Webometrics Ranking of World Universities and we intend to make our dreams come true: by 2021, CYUT will be ranked Top-500 University in Asia by Times Higher Education World University Rankings; by 2026 Top-300 University in Asia; by 2030 Top-1,000 University in the World; by 2050 Top-100 New University in the world. 
  In TIMES Higher Education Asia Universities Summit 2016, Thomas F. Rosenbaum, President of California Institute of Technology, viewed 「Vision, Focus, Perspective」 as the motto of Caltech. In other words, it means seeing far away, paying attention to depth, and digging into everything. This cornerstone of administrative affairs is also appropriate to CYUT. In order to stabilize the rapid development of CYUT and to anchor our campus value, it is very important to perpetuate our sustainable administration, to play the dual role of inherited tradition and innovation, to amplify administrative development, and to expand the influence of teaching and scientific research. We have to shoulder this heavy duty and responsibility. Members of administrative team, faculty, students, and those enthusiastic educators for the development of CYUT—together, let's work hard and create our future so as to pursue excellence and then success follows.
