Strengths and Performance

      Our institution is blessed with a beautiful natural location by the shores of Cheng Ching Lake on the outskirts of metropolitan Kaohsiung. Close enough to the city’s bustling and prosperous commercial center to enable close cooperation among industry, government, and academia, and to allow students to maintain a firm grasp on the pulse of society, yet still removed from the crowds and distractions of the big city, it is an ideal place for cultivating fine citizens and preparing them for careers after graduation. The University is currently comprised of 19 academic departments, 2 bachelor programs and 12 graduate institutes, organized under the College of Engineering, College of Management, and the College of Life and Creativity, in an arrangement designed to promote the cultivation of well-rounded individuals equally adept in science and the humanities. In recent years we have gone to considerable expenditure to build a library, academic buildings, and state-of-the-art classrooms. The impressive array of buildings and comprehensive, cutting edge facilities offer students a complete learning environment. In recent years we have compiled an outstanding record of performance, garnering the top ratings in 13 categories of Ministry of Education evaluations of commercial and administrative specialty institutions in 1998 and 1999. Against even stricter standards in a subsequent 2002 evaluation by the Ministry of Education, Cheng Shiu once again rated highest in 12 categories, the most of any one institution, and in school inspection and recommendation evaluations conducted for the 1998-2001academic years by the Ministry of Education, we received Outstanding ratings all four years in a row.
