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.

commitment to the quality in education and outstanding achievements, on August 1,
