|A Message from the President|
Chaoyang University of Technology was founded in 1994 through the generosity of Dr. Tien-sheng Yang, president of the Ever Fortune Group, a major R.O.C. conglomerate, in memory of his parents, and in return for the support he received throughout the years from the people and communities of central Taiwan. In 1988 he chose a site in Taichung County's Wufeng Township, and after six years of preparation, on April 14, 1994, it received permission from the Ministry of Education to begin accepting students as "Chaoyang Institute of Technology." The school takes its name from a passage in the Chinese classical work "The Book of Changes," a phrase which captures the school's vigorous growth and its students' active commitment to learning.
In its first year, Chaoyang had eight departments and over 900 students. Due to its commitment to quality in education and outstanding achievements, on August 1, 1997, Chaoyang was designated by the Ministry of Education as a University of Technology, the highest level in the R.O.C.'s polytechnic educational system. This designation, coming only three years after Chaoyang opened its doors, set a record in the R.O.C. 's educational history, which remains unbroken. In addition to its new designation, Chaoyang has continued to expand, and today boasts four colleges, nine graduate schools, and nineteen departments, as well as its Evening Division, General Education Center, Center for Teacher Education, Continuing Education Center, Office of Research and Development, The Business Incubation Center, and affiliated kindergarten. Faculty and staff now number 556 and student enrollment is 13,402.
Diligence, Betterment, Practice
Diligence: earnest study in pursuit of the truth
Betterment: self-cultivation to add strength of character
Practice: self-discipline in service to the public welfare
Chaoyang's insignia is blue and white. These colors symbolize the serenity and detachment essential to the pursuit of knowledge and learning.
The insignia itself uses four square T-shapes, standing for technology, and four beams of light directed inward, each ending at a bolt-like block at the center. The outer border is octagonal, representing the eight trigrams of the I-ching. The beams of light are concentrated around a central sun, which symbolizes youth in pursuit of knowledge. The four T shapes represents the school's commitment to excellence in instruction, excellence in resources, vocational programs, and improvement of commerce and industry. The four bolt shapes represent the faculty's dedication to instruction, research, and mentorship of students.
