NYCU was founded on the idea that, in a great university, people work across the disciplines to solve real-world problems. At our university, putting this idea into practice requires integrating Chiao Tung’s strengths in information and communications technology with Yang Ming’s strengths in biomedical research. It also requires contributing to fields located at the intersection of these research areas, for example, digital medicine and bioinformatics. And it requires training our students in such a way that the next generation will not be as constrained by disciplinary boundaries as the previous one.

At NYCU, we are striving to be a great university that transcends disciplinary divides to solve the increasingly complex problems that the world faces. We will continue to be guided by the idea that we can achieve something much greater together than we can individually. After all, that was the idea that led to the creation of our university in the first place.
