Brief History of the University

Brief History of the University

        Chaoyang University of Technology was founded in 1994 through the generosity of Dr. Tien- sheng Yang, the President of the Ever Fortune Group, a major conglomerate in the R.O.C., 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 Wufeng Township of Taichung County, and after six years of preparation, on April 14, 1994, the school 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," 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 the 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 polytechnic educational system in the R.O.C. This designation, coming only three years after Chaoyang opened its doors, set a record in the educational history of Taiwan, which remains unbroken.

        In addition to its new designation, Chaoyang has continued to expand, and today boasts 5 colleges, 5 doctoral programs, 19 master's programs, and 22 departments, as well as General Education Center, Office of Research and Development, and preschool at CYUT.

        The faculty and staff now number about 600 in all and the student enrollment is about 17,000.
