With the spirit of “Knowing the new brings us far. Advocate the truth and persevere,” NCTU is committed to academic research, talent cultivation, and social service. We also actively promote international academic exchange to come into contact with worldwide higher education. Through all-round arrangements, we have in turn developed diverse fields of study, such as natural science, engineering, management science and humanities, progressing toward a top elaborate comprehensive university in the world.
Though well-known for its scientific and engineering expertise, NCTU insists on the idea of liberal education and has been enhancing our general education. We diversify the courses in order to build up students’ knowledge and wisdom, cultivate in them a character of independence and maturity, and an attitude of lifelong learning.
Open Course Ware (OCW) begins with the basic taught courses which we are most proud of. These include physics, chemistry, calculus, and so forth. It sets our premium expertise and teaching for a broader use. In the future, OCW will further cover someextended courses. It has not only opened a door to self-learning for students at each level, but offered a rare opportunity for those who simply wish to enjoy the beauty of basic science.
