A nearly NT$110 million grant from the Ministry of Education for Lunghwa’s excellent schooling performance and steady development of school affairs

Jun 27 2023

The Ministry of Education recently announced the results of the 2023 annual rewards and subsidies for developing private technical colleges and universities. Lunghwa University of Science and Technology was granted more than NT$109.09 million this year due to its steady growth in school affairs, a substantial increase of nearly NT$12 million from last year. In the past year, three NT$100 million Lunghwa projects were successively granted by the Ministry of Education, including a NT$100 million subsidy to build a “base for electronic structure design of high-speed transmission interface and talent and technology training,” over NT$147.95 million support from within the framework of the Higher Education Sprout Project in 2023, and an overall fund in 2023 totaling more than NT$109.09 million. The scale of the university endowment fund ranks among the top three among universities of Science and Technology in Taiwan. This demonstrates the high regard in which education authorities hold Lunghwa’s excellent school performance.

Professor Tzu-Hsiang Ko, president of Lunghwa University of Science and Technology, said that the Ministry of Education allocates overall development subsidies to private technical colleges and universities every year to assist in overall school development with distinct characteristics and comprehensively improve the quality of education and competitiveness. In addition to rigorously reviewing the application proposals of each school, the amount of funding for each school is determined by numerous quantitative indicators, such as the number of teachers and students and the allocation of student funding by the school. Despite the challenges posed by a declining birth rate and a decreasing number of test applicants, the total number of students at Lunghwa University of Science and Technology has continued to increase in recent years. In 2022, the total amount of teacher incentive bonuses issued, exceeding NT$25 million, reached a new high, and the amount of industry-university cooperation also exceeded NT$330 million. These achievements underscore Lunghwa’s excellent school performance.

President Ko pointed out, “Many high-quality universities with distinctive features are attractive to students because there are relatively more employment opportunities in the future.” Leveraging the Higher Education Sprout Project funds, the overall development subsidy funds, and its own funds, Lunghwa continues to invest in optimizing teacher qualifications, equipment, and the campus environment, with a focus on building a multi-smart practice field platform, strengthening cross-domain technology integration, and cultivating talent as key development features.

President Ko emphasized that Lunghwa University of Science and Technology insists on providing distinctive education. Lunghwa took the lead in launching the “Order-based Career Program” in 2011. With modular course design, students’ university courses in the final year are transformed into first-year enterprise training. Additionally, being located at the junction of New Taipei City and Taoyuan, surrounded by more than ten industrial districts, and offering practical courses, Lunghwa provides numerous internship opportunities. Consequently, its graduates are generally favored by enterprises. This year, Lunghwa University of Science and Technology secured first place among private universities of science and technology in Taiwan in the “2023 Enterprises’ Favorite College Students” survey conducted by Global Views Monthly and Cheers.

In addition to developing distinctive features and forging close ties to the industry, Lunghwa University of Science and Technology also employs digital technologies such as AI, cloud computing, Lunghwa software cloud, and virtual learning platforms to foster teaching innovation. The university is committed to creating a smart campus and borderless classrooms, allowing students to learn anytime and anywhere. The goal is to promote an “innovative” learning style—classrooms everywhere, learning everywhere, and an “innovative” learning approach—applying technology and services such as smart manufacturing, AI, IoT, cloud computing, big data, XR (AR/VR/MR) to enhance students’ knowledge and skills across various fields, making them the most capable professionals in the future workplace.
