NTUIC will be a “global integration platform” and “coordinator” at NTU, dedicating to the creation of a globalized learning environment for every department.
NTUIC will gradually roll out English-taught master programs in areas including global agriculture technology and genomic science, disaster prevention and damage reduction, and smart medicine and digital healthcare on the concepts of humanity, transnational mutual aid, and achievement of excellence.
The programs will open up NTU’s campus to students worldwide. NTUIC can thus dedicate Taiwan’s outstanding R&D as well as academic capabilities to the world. At the same time, the programs aim to retain talents in Taiwan by integrating NTU’s world-renowned academic strengths. One example of the programs is the Master Program in Global Agriculture Technology and Genomic Science, which will start accepting applications from international students in 2019.
With the integration of NTU’s academic strengths, NTUIC not only shoulders the responsibility to promote interdisciplinary R&D and teaching but also plays an important role in marketing Taiwan and NTU to the world.
