NPUST 2018 International Student Chinese New Year Gala
2018-02-14 Coming from 48 countries throughout the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe and Oceania, NPUST is currently home to 760 foreign students. And with Chinese New Year just around the corner, the university wanted to give their students from abroad a chance to get in the mood for the holiday and experience the festive atmosphere that makes Chinese New Year so special. On February 12th, nearly 90 international and Overseas Chinese students, who are spending winter break on campus, joined in on the fun. The students represented 27 countries, including Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, India, Nepal, Belize, Swaziland, and Mongolia. Chinese New Year decorations adorned the A-Rong Seafood Restaurant in Donggang, Pingtung where the students gathered for the “reunion dinner” – enjoying the meal traditionally held on Chinese New Year’s Eve a few days in advance. Festive music set the mood while the students enjoyed their dinner with good company. The Office of International Affairs also arranged a delightful show, gave out prizes, and introduced students to the customs and taboos surrounding the holiday. NPUST President Chang-Hsien Tai and the Overseas Community Affairs Council representative Song Shou-zhong were also on the scene and joined in on the fun. The university faculty and administrators wished the international students blessings in the coming “Year of the Dog” – hoping that all would go well for them in 2018. The students were overjoyed and expressed their gratitude for the warmth that was extended to them by the university while they are away from their homes and families during the holiday season.
Southern Region and South Island Ethnic Group Cultural Exchange
2017-12-19 On December 8th, 2017 under the direction of the Ministry of Education and Council of Indigenous Peoples, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology (NPUST) and Tajen University (TU) teamed up to host the Southern Region and South Island Ethnic Group Cultural Exchange.The activity, organized by the Indigenous Students Resources Centers of each university, was held on the NPUST campus. The goal was to strengthen the English abilities of indigenous college and university students, cultivate their international exchange skills, broaden their international frames of reference and simultaneously expose them to knowledge on research topics of indigenous peoples from other countries. Indigenous students and students from the Indonesian Student Association took part in the experiential cultural exchange, which incorporated traditional music, dancing and costume. The activity was broken up into morning and afternoon sessions. Starting things off, NPUST’s Indigenous Students Resources Center director, Dr. I-Chun Chiang, and TU Dean of Student affairs, Dr. Mao-Chun Chiu, hosted the opening ceremony which featured a traditional Indonesian anglung musical performance accompanied by the Cublak Cublak Suweng song dance. In the afternoon, Indigenous Pop singer and Wind Music “Gold Melody Award” winner, Tai Siao-Chun, was invited to share her life story through music. Later, the NPUST Department of Recreational Sport & Health Promotion “Outdoor Adventure Team” led the teachers and students on an exhilarating high-level rope course which got everyone engaged, with lots of cheering and excitement. The activities gave the indigenous students an opportunity to interact with peers from different countries and gain an understanding of different cultures. It also helped them to practice using a foreign language and open up their international fields of view. The students felt that it was “truly a meaningful and joyous activity”.
Retired NPUST Teacher and Alumnus Recognized for Lifetime Achievement
2017-12-19 Presented with the “Agricultural Machinery Lifetime Achievement Award”, retired NPUST teacher and alumnus of the school, Dr. Pao-Chuan Chen, has received the highest distinction within the domain of agricultural machinery for his contributions and achievements. On December 15th a press conference was held at NPUST to share Dr. Chen’s story. Dr. Chen lived a remarkable life. In addition to teaching junior high, vocational school and university level classes over the years, he also represented Taiwan overseas as an agriculture equipment and mechanical engineering expert. Accumulating over eight years abroad, Dr. Chen’s work found him in such places as El Salvador, Saudi Arabia, Gambia, and Swaziland. He is also responsible for the development of a variety of agriculture equipment, including garlic and onion harvesters, a Longan peeler and a corn shucker. Always learning, Dr. Chen completed a PhD at 73. As a youth, Dr. Chen received his elementary school education in Gaoshu, Pingtung. He later enrolled in the Pingtung Institute of Agriculture (currently, NPUST) studying entry level and advanced level agronomy. Dr. Chen then entered Chung-Hsing University where he received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in agriculture machinery. With many years of accomplishment behind him, Chen returned to Chung-Hsing and completed a PhD in Bio-Industrial Mechatronics Engineering and was also awarded an honorary PhD in Engineering. While serving at NPUST, Dr. Chen was a diligent professor, maintaining a selfless attitude and putting others before himself. His research resulted in the development in numerous pieces of agriculture processing equipment and he trained many farmers and military personnel on the use of agricultural machinery – making contributions both at home and abroad. On receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, Dr. Chen expressed his gratitude to the former president of the Pingtung Institute of Agriculture, Dr. Meng-sian Guo, and retired Chung-Hsing professor, Tse-Ya Chen, for their tutoring, as well as his principal at Chongcheng Junior high, Wang Chun-Lian, for recommending that he study at Pingtung Institute of Agriculture (currently, NPUST). He expressed thanks to all his professors and teachers at university and the former presidents of NPUST for their conscientiousness. He was also grateful for the assistance he received from colleagues in the industry and the support he got from his wife, who sold her gold jewelry to help pay for his tuition and get him to where he is today.
Department of Fashion Puts on Fourth Annual Graduation Collection Show
2017-12-12 On December 11th the Department of Fashion Design and Management held a live show at the Yugang Library and Convention Center to present its 2017 Academic Year collection to the public. Article exhibits were also set up for viewing at the Yugang Library and the Yunshu Hall, on campus, from December 11th to 17th and the 10th floor of the Shinkong Mitsukoshi department store in Kaohsiung from December 21st to 24th. The 200 pieces modeled in the live show were an interpretation of contemporary social issues and illnesses of modern civilization. Among these included a protest against the use of real leather and fur from innocent animals for fashion purposes; a warning of the snare of dangerous lovers, with layered metallic looking fabrics representative of traps that are set; and a reminder of the a complications of social progress, with three-dimensional cutting techniques used to depict the effect of retinal distortion. There were also over 150 items displayed in the static collection, including dyed bags, metallic accessories, and traditional cheongsams reflecting rich Chinese flavor. President Chang Hsien Tai stated that “this current exhibit is extremely diverse, with works that incorporate issues promoted by the university, including environmental conservation and sustainable development, in designs that are very creative.” He also emphasized that “the university is home to a diverse concentration of departments; and if students get involved in inter-disciplinary studies and learn to incorporate AI and big data analysis, they will be able to forge new pathways for their future careers.” The executive director of the Tainan Business, Culture and Arts Foundation (台南企業文化藝術基金會) Ye Zhong-li said that in the past, “it was said that people are like their clothing – expressing their own style with what they wear. However, currently there are too many choices. Also, more money is now being allocated towards technology and less is being spent on clothing, so we encourage students to get into interdisciplinary studies, getting their finger on the pulse of the world. Students shouldn’t wait for an opportunity to start working hard; instead, they should recognize that by working hard, opportunities will be created – so we encourage students to be diligent in their studies.”
Forum on Biological Control and Plant Medicine
2017-12-01 The Department of Plant Medicine offers courses which emphasize knowledge related to plant disease, pests, weeds and pesticides as it works to transform its students into plant medicine professionals. And along with the world-wide trend to reduce reliance on chemical pesticides, faculty and students in the department are actively working to develop “biological control” resources useful for staving off harm from pests and disease. In an effort to promote the proliferation of related knowledge, the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine (BAPGIQ) and NPUST have jointly sponsored the Forum on Biological Control and Plant Medicine. Invitations were extended to the director of the bureau, Huang Te-Chang; Chiang Mai University professor of Entomology and Plant Pathology, Dr. McGovern; and Qingdao Agricultural University Plant Medicine College dean, Liu Tongxian to share their research. The forum also invited scholars and experts from around the Taiwan to present on various topics. NPUST Vice President Chung-Ruey Yen pointed out that “the Department of Plant Medicine, which has been operating for 40 years, was the first department of plant medicine to be established in the country and has trained vast numbers of experts in the prevention and treatment of plant disease and pests. NPUST, has ranked number one in Taiwan on the GreenMetric University Ranking for three consecutive years and operates according to principles of sustainability – and in the future, many of the campus facilities, including the Organic Farm and Smart Farm, will need to rely on the expertise of plant medicine professionals to contribute to interdisciplinary integration efforts and help NPUST’s green campus to see continuous improvement”. Bureau Director Huang stated that “lately, biological control and plant medicine have become very popular areas of study; and in recent years, the Council of Agriculture has been promoting a 50% reduction in pesticide usage. This is closely connected with the need to develop and promote biological control technology and microbial pesticides. The plant medicine techniques currently being promoted will not only ensure employment for plant medicine experts, but are also very important milestones for the protection of the environment. Today’s forum is very significant and we hope that agriculturalists will be able to see great benefit as a result of it.” The forum also invited Ms. Kao Pei-lin, a plant medicine doctor interning with the Kaohsiung City Government, to give a presentation. Ms. Kao stated that “clinical diagnosis depends on the accumulation of much experience. And there is a gap between farmers’ use of pesticides and their knowledge related to diagnosis and biological control. Taking the first steps into this field can be very challenging; however, thankfully, I have received consultation and advice from many professionals. Currently, successful diagnosis and treatment is being done on many farms, and farmers are gradually becoming willing to try using beneficial microorganisms or natural enemies to pests as a means to prevent and control damage from pests. Work to promote the practices is still needed; however, currently, I already feel a very big sense of accomplishment.” In order to keep in-line with the trend to reduce the use of chemical pesticides, the department is aggressively developing “biological control” resources to prevent pest damage. One excellent example of this is Professor Tsui-Ying Chang’s use of the Anastatus sp. to control the spread of the invasive lychee bug. To promote this type of research, this year the Center for Microbial Preparation Research was established at the Department of Plant Medicine. In 2017, NPUST also signed memorandum of strategic alliance with Bayer Taiwan under which the pair will work to develop eco-friendly strategies to prevent crop damage from pests and reduce the problem of pesticide residues. The cooperative relationship will also create internship opportunities for students so that they can get on-job experience as they work towards becoming professional plant medical doctors. The department hopes that the current forum will lead to improved and broader application of biological control techniques helping to improve the environment and the health of consumers.
SRI Probiotics Friendly-Farming Method Allows Soil to Breathe: Waiting for Rich Harvest
2017-12-01 Director of the NPUST Department of Civil Engineering, Professor Yu-Min Wang, oversees the Water Conservation Lab responsible for a 10 year research initiative focused on improved crop cultivation methods. The Project has received funding from the Council of Agriculture, the Pingtung Irrigation Association and the SRI Society of Conservation Agriculture (CA-SRI) and involves masters and PhD students from Nepal, Swaziland, Burkina Faso, Papua New Guinea and Taiwan and faculty members from the Department of Biological Science and Technology and the Department of Plant Industry. The decade-long initiative has resulted in a new eco-friendly farming technique, monikered the “more-three, less-four method” (三多四少農法), which comes down to more sun-drying, more plowing, more organic matter; fewer seedlings, fewer pesticides, less water and less fertilizer. Producing rich and high quality crops, the method not only conserves water, but also helps make the stocks more resilient to wind damage. NPUST President Chang-Hsien Tai pointed out that “the industry-government- academia rice-paddy water conservation team is expanding the employment of the technique in the Taitung area and conducting SRI probiotic cultivation experiments. Already, they have successfully produced quality rice crops using their new approach. Their work is very practical, not only are they greatly reducing water use, but are also providing students with an opportunity to take part in cross-discipline internships. We hope that in the future the technique will be adopted internationally so that many more farmers will be able to benefit from it”. Professor Yu-Min Wang also shared some comments, stating that “in addition to using probiotics to strengthen the toughness of rice, we have uniquely developed UAV infrared imaging chlorophyll estimation capabilities to improve the efficiency of farm management. The UAVs are equipped with cameras with 4 infrared lenses for shooting at different distances and have 12 different vegetation indexes installed to calculate the levels of chlorophyll and effectively monitor crop growth for better field management. Not only does this reduce the human effort needed for crop cultivation, but when paired with an intelligent irrigation management system, it can reduce work on that end too.” The Water Conservation Lab has spent nearly 10 years working out conservational watering techniques and their data has shown that, in Pingtung’s climate, the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) can allow for up to a 55% reduction in water use. The experiment results have already been published in the international journal, Water. The “more-three, less four” technique was first carried out on a one hectare plot of land at the The House of Plants - Fragrant Herbs Organic Field (植物之家香藥草有機田區) in Jiuru, Pingtung. During the trial period, even though they encountered several typhoons, the crop quality was excellent and results were fruitful. In recent years, Taiwan has experienced several water shortages, and when considering that 70% of the water supply is used for agriculture (much of that going to rice cultivation), this friendly farming technique couldn’t have come at a better time. The technique replaces commonly used 8-10 stock transplanting method with a 3-5 stock one. When it’s time to irrigate, probiotics are added to the water to improve chances microbial activation in the soil. Then the patty is left to sun-dry at intervals of 2 to 3 days, each time, before flooding the field with 3 cm of water again. As a result, the rice stocks gradually adapt to the dry, hard ground and their roots increase in length, digging deep into the soil. Also, due to the fermenting effect and activity of the microorganisms, the soil becomes more porous and is able to breathe better –contributing to the growth and quality of the crops. Thus, this “more-three, less-four” method allows for a natural, water saving method that can produce excellent rice crops.
New Center for Community Forestry to Promote Satoyama Economies
2017-12-01 On November 18th an opening ceremony was held for the newly created “Center for Community Forestry”, which is stationed at the NPUST Department of Forestry building. The center will work to promote the sustainable use of Taiwan’s rich natural & cultural resources, community development, revitalization of village economies, and adoption of “Sound Material-Cycle Society” concepts. The underlying strategy is based on the Japanese “Satoyama” (里山) practices of “managing forests through local agricultural communities”. The center came about through the cooperative efforts of the Forestry Bureau and NPUST. Through talent cultivation and cross discipline integration, hopes are to officially initiate an era of “Community Forestry 2.0” and help Taiwan’s mountainous villages move towards a future of stable development. The center will serve both as green-economy talent bank for the mountainous areas, and a base for education & training, knowledge exchange and international cooperation. An online platform has also been set up to collect and share knowledge, technology and resources. Representatives of NPUST, the Forestry Bureau, the Wutai Government and the Rukai Tribe Council were joined by related experts in the field at the opening ceremony. In remarks made by Vice President Chung-Ruey Yen, reference was given to President Chang-Hsien Tai’s emphasis on ecological conservation and the four main axes of development he established for the university when beginning his presidency; namely, technology based agriculture, ecology industry, platinum society and blue economy. Vice-President Yen went on further to explain how the university’s six colleges are working to integrate industry supply chains and linking with community industries to optimize industry-government-academia cooperation. Forestry Bureau Director Hwa-Ching Lin explained that the bureau initiated the “Local Ecology Conservation Green-Network Project” in 2018 in an effort to create conservation areas extending from Taiwan’s central mountain areas, across the foothills and plains, right down to the coastlines – giving expression to the natural essence of the surrounding communities and tribes. The bureau also established a “Satoyama Roots Economy” knowledge information system (KIS) to provide information and matchmaking services to communities across Taiwan. Since 2002 the Forestry Bureau has been promoting community forestry practices and cooperating with different tribes to put over 2300 projects into effect. In 2008, the bureau began cooperating with NPUST’s Professor Mei-Hui Chen to develop ecological tourism with indigenous tribes in Pingtung and helping with the efforts to rebuild after the devastating Morakot Typhoon ravaged the area. Nakamura Nobuyuki, a Satoyama expert from Japan, was also given a special invitation to be present during the opening ceremony. Nakamura, who is also on the preparatory committee for the Taiwan-Japan Satoyama Exchange Council, expressed his appreciation for the way universities, governmental agencies and local communities in Taiwan were cooperating closely with one another in a manner that he has not seen elsewhere. In an effort to add even greater depth to the Satoyama orientated objectives, NPUST has also applied for membership to the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI), which is sanctioned by the government of Japan and the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS). NPUST is hoping to become the 10th organization in Taiwan be inducted into the partnership, thus allowing the university to glean more information and experience from other organizations conducting related research and give faculty members a new opportunity to represent Taiwan internationally and share the results of their long term research activities in rural areas.
Pingtung Bus “Reserved Buses” On Campus
2017-11-27 On November 23rd, the Directorate General of Highways and the Pingtung County Government accompanied Pingtung Bus and NPUST at the opening ceremony for the “Demand Response Transportation System” (DRTS). This will be the first time nationwide for DRTS services to be offered within university campus grounds and will include Taiwan’s first-ever APP reservation and “late bird reservation” services. NPUST President Chang-Hsien Tai pointed out that “NPUST is situated on a 300 hectare campus and many of the students are living in off-campus dorms. For the most part, students get around on scooters and at peak times traffic can be busy, to say the least. In order to improve on-campus safety and convenience of movement, effective alternatives to scooters need to be offered. The DRTS system can provide students with a safe and convenient commuting option; and in the future, hopes are to integrate more of the smart technology developed by the university to improve all aspects of daily life, including eating, clothing, living and commuting — and also to help farmers in more remote areas with the transporting of their produce. We are also grateful to the Pingtung County government for providing financial support; not only with respect to the mass transit systems, but also with the re-engineering of Keda Road. The financial support from the government will translate into safer commuting for students.” Pingtung County Governor, Men-An Pan, said that “with its vast space, NPUST is the most qualified university to offer on-campus bus services. We are grateful for the support provided by the Directorate General of Highways, for approving the opening of many new routes so that students and faculty will be able to enjoy this type of convenient service”. DRTS has been broadly implemented in rural areas around the country as a result of the recent promotion of the system by the Directorate General of Highways. The DGH also recognized the feasibility of employing the system at university campuses and thus invited Pingtung Bus and NPUST to team up to get the project rolling, and to serve as the first example of on-campus DRTS services in the country. Currently the DRTS services all follow a model that requires reservations to be made one day in advance; however, taking “student life” into consideration, Pingtung Bus has worked to improve the system, offering the first ever DRTS “late bird” services, so that students can make reservations according to a post-arrival threshold or according to specific bus number, allowing for maximum occupancy and more efficient services. Additionally, with the APP functions, students can make reservations 24 hours a day. The director of Pingtung Bus, Zi-yi Kuo, noted that Pingtung Bus already has a shuttle service to and from NPUST, however, with the traditional type of service it may be hard to accommodate for students’ situations. In order to get the mass transit more in touch with students’ needs, Pingtung Bus not only will start a brand new service, but has purchase a 9-seater bus to access the small and narrow student dorm roads, so that we can reach deeper into the student’s territory and increase the number of users. The current route includes 12 stops on and off campus. In order to accommodate for the new services, the Pingtung County government is funding the creation of four additional stops, mainly to provide locations for students living off campus and make it more convenient for the students to take the shuttle to and from school. Beginning operations on November 23rd, the new services are already receiving rave reviews from students, and with support from both the Pingtung County government and NPUST, free fare and a one person occupancy requirement are expected to help get students into the habit of using the new means of commuting. In the future, plans are to conduct periodic reviews and increase the number of stops on campus and in the surrounding area. The goal is to link the DRTS services to the routes running between NPUST and the Pingtung train station and Kaohsiung HSR station to provide a more comfortable and convenient way for students to commute. Zi-Yi Kuo also said that providing safe and convenient services for students, faculty and colleagues was the original intent and mission of Pingtung Bus. “We hope that this first case of cooperation between a bus company and university will serve as an example for others to follow, resulting in more on-campus DRTS services and working towards the goal of providing safe and environmentally-friendly transportation nationwide.”
NPUST Embraces the Art of Handcrafted Violins
2017-11-27 Professor Way Long of the NPUST Department of Wood Science and Design has organized “College Violin” workshop to teach students the art of making handcrafted violins. Professor Long will focus the skills and knowledge of the department onto a new aim of creating violins that embody the kind of quality that is seen in the Italian Cremona Violins, and hopefully turn the school into a center for violin making in Taiwan. President Chang-Hsien Tai pointed out that the Department of Wood Science and Design uses different types of Taiwan’s locally produced woods — woods from tree plantations and even driftwood— to produce the violins; thus creating an optimal circular economic scenario while joining precision craftsmanship with music in another example of the university’s effort to promote professionalism and culture. Professor Way Long explained that there are three main differences between the “College Violin” and the Cremona Violin; the first is that every violin is made by students using traditional, purely hand-made methods. The second is that, rather than using expensive imported woods, every violin makes use of locally cultivated woods, with food material and plants used for surface treatment. The third is that in addition to making the violin, every student needs to learn how to play—to express the beauty that gives life to the wood. The “College Violin” handcrafted instruments make use of Taiwan Zelkova wood (back plate), Luanta Fir (front plate) and employs exquisite crafting techniques. Violins have always been regarded as elite instruments, and the crafting processes are full of legend and secret – which even put the department’s faculty to the test. Thus, wood design professor Way Long is coordinating with the renowned violin maker, Huang Sheng-yen, who will bring his professional craftsmanship to the campus, to harmonize his art with the woodworking skills of the department. Under their direction, students will select the wood, laminate the parts, and apply the surface treatment –independently carrying out every step of the processes, so that they can experience the art of making the instrument an then play its first notes for themselves. The mold creation, materials preparation, violin assembly, surface treatment, and coating are all done by hand. The materials used for surface treatment are all natural, food-based or plant based materials – yellow stains made from tangerines, gold stains made from amber, and reds coming from wine or Royal Poinciana. And once the handmade violin is assembled, its sound is tested in a moment that is likened to an infant taking her first steps. Adjustments are then made to correct the sound, as each of the different materials and types of treatments will result in a different type of sound quality, as unique as a person’s voiceprint. Huang Sheng-yan, who has been playing violin since his youth and who holds a master’s degree from Japan’s Senzoku Gakuen College of Music, studied under the tutelage of Tokyo Symphony Orchestra chair, Tsuneo Iso. As a youth, his father gave him a 60 thousand dollar violin to play and the technical skills to maintain it. This kindled a desire within him to play and to make the instrument. He thus cultivated his violin making skills and has instructed violin making around the world. Under his guidance, the students in the woodworking department at NPUST will be able to develop their craftsmanship in a completely new direction .
“NPUST Feature Exhibition Center” Offers Chance to Witness University’s “Paradigmatic” Research Results
2017-11-23 Building on a foundation of agricultural technology, NPUST, the only “Paradigm University” in the Kaohsiung and Pingtung Area, has successfully diversified into a variety of different fields which are continuously being reunited through dedicated inter-disciplinary initiatives. And so, in order to properly display the results of some of NPUST’s diverse research teams, special plans were drawn up to build the “NPUST Feature Exhibition Center” and the “Faculty and Student Featured Works Gallery” on the west side of the NPUST campus.

On November 22, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place during which NPUST’s President, Chang-Hsien Tai, made some remarks. President Tai pointed out that “in addition to agricultural technology focuses, the research of faculty and students at NPUST covers cultural innovations which follow a practical approach and can be directly applied in the business sector. The results that have come about from the hard work of faculty and students are the most precious asset of the university; and now, the exhibition center and gallery will offer a new platform for students and faculty members to exhibit their works and increase the visibility of their research results. At the same time, it gives members of all sectors of the community a chance to get a better understanding of the innovative developments in technology and the educational achievements of students at the school, while strengthening the link between academics and industry and providing a standard for the Asian region and even the world.”

The Feature Exhibition Center has a floor space of over 720m2 (7,828ft2), and in addition to introducing the transformation that the university has undergone over the years, it highlights research which has been conducted in line with the university’s main axis points of development; namely, agricultural technology, eco-industry, blue economy and platinum societies. Currently on display, visitors can see such items as the remote control UAV crop duster, electric car, permeable pavement, green energy greenhouse hydroponic system, fermentation technology food products, and works by the Department of Wood Science and Design and Department of Fashion. The center also intends to collect research results from each of the university’s colleges and create an information center which will provide local and foreign visitors, alumni and parents with an in-depth understanding of the university’s orientation, and bridge the gap between the school and the general public. It will also serve as a facility for educational activities, training and community service promotion.

The first collections on display at the Faculty and Student Featured Works Gallery include works by the Department of Fashion Design and Management and the Department of Wood Science and Design. The fashion exhibits explore abstract artistic concepts that are integrated with fundamental aesthetic principles, combining different materials, lines and colors into a creative thematic collection. The 20 plus woodworking creations on display were the result of a special woodworking class that was set up according to a theme of “LOHAS creations and value adding design”. The students used extra-curricular time to diligently hone their carpentry skills and creative technique while producing works that emphasize synthesis, sustainability and the essence of cultural cultivation.

The exhibition center offers a clear picture of the exceptional development that has taken place at NPUST since the school was first established 93 years ago, and will continue to update its displays as the university makes new progress in its research and sees new breakthroughs in its technological development.
