About us

In 1998, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology established the nation’s first full English teaching program, the Department of Tropical Agriculture and International Cooperation (DTAIC). DTAIC together with the Chinese Language Center were merged to launch the International College in February 2011, which is a first among science and technology universities in Taiwan. We cooperate actively with the International Cooperation and Development Foundation (TaiwanICDF), the Council of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Education in promoting agriculture sciences and training talents for tropical areas. Our programs are pioneering in Taiwan, and are recognized both national and internationally from their inception. To date, we have trained over three hundred Bachelor, Master, and PhD students from over forty countries in Asia, Oceania, Africa and the Americas.
