History

     In an effort to cultivate business and technical professionals to accommodate our country’s industrial development, Mr. Chun-yaun Cheng, Mr. Chin-Ko Kung and Mr. Ching-sheng Li established this school in 1965, choosing the well-known Cheng-Ching lake as our campus location. The school name “Cheng-Shiu” was chosen from the classic Chinese philosophy The Great Learning as: Cheng-Hsin (righteouness), Shiu-Sen (fortitude), Chi-Chia (family value), Chi-Kuo (governs) and Ping Tian Hsia (prosperity). “Unto perfection”is out school motto.

     Our school was set out as “Cheng-Shiu Junior College of technology” in 1956. It was then reorganized with the approval of the Ministry of Education, and was renamed as “Cheng-Shiu Institute of Technology & Commerce” in 1980. In 1999, the school was promoted to be “Cheng Shiu Institute of Technology” and was further upgraded to “Cheng-Shiu University” in 2003.

     We currently offer Day-Time Programs (Graduate Institute; Two-year technical college for graduates from junior college; Four-year technical college for graduates from vocational senior high school; Five-year junior college for graduates from junior high school; Two-year junior college for graduates from vocational senior high school), Continue-Education Programs (Two-year technical college for graduates from junior college; Four-year technical college for graduates from vocational senior high school; Two-year junior college for graduates from vocational senior high school), and the weekend Programs in the affiliated Institute of Continuing Education (Two-year technical college and junior college). We have successively founded undergraduate programs namely in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Architecture, International Trade, Business Management, Early Childhood Care and Education, Information Management, Applied Foreign Languages, Sports, Health and Leisure, Finance, and Graduate Institutes of Mechatronic Engineering and Electronic Engineering, including the most important disciplines in the field of business, technology and liberal arts.

     Being up-graded to a university, we will spare no efforts to pursue outstanding achievements and innovations with a brand new atmosphere and a grand setup. It’s not only an honor to us, but also it’s our responsibility to contribute our best to our country. We look forward to forge further ahead, and are determined to lead Cheng-Shiu University into a magnificent future.
