NATIONAL TAICHUNG UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Holistic Education Committee
Introduction
  • Key Features
    The cornerstones of holistic education are the four major objectives that the university hopes to accomplish: broad vision, smart service, diverse learning, and modern campus. Holistic education is introduced to help the students develop a broad vision through interdisciplinary learning and inspire them to care for people, society, and the environment. Smart services and a diversified interactive learning environment ensure they have a robust mind and body to take action. The Holistic Education Committee includes three academic units, namely the General Education Center, the Language Center, and the Office of Physical Education. The variety of programs and activities contribute to the formation of capabilities in students required for cross-disciplinary and international endeavors and lifetime sports. The hope is that students become modern citizens, able to express themselves in foreign languages, and get into the good habit of exercising.
