National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University is a national university founded in 1975 (National Yang Ming University and National Chiao Tung University merged in 2021). As one of the leading universities in Taiwan, ranked 501-600 in the THE World University Rankings, this comprehensive university with an emphasis on science and technology as well as strengths in medicine and management, encompasses approximately 20,000 students and 22 departments.

Both the School of Informatics and NYCU College of Computer Science encompass a wide range of research areas from basic to applied, with a particular focus on artificial intelligence technologies and their applications. It was on that basis that faculty interchange between the NYCU College of Computer Science and School of Informatics began in 2016, and KUT students have also been sent to NYCU on temporary assignments.

Now, in order to further promote collaborative research and student exchange, they have signed an interdepartmental exchange agreement.

On August 8th, the KUT professors visited the NYCU College of Computer Science and held a signing ceremony after conducting a dialogue with Dean Jyh-Cheng Chen, Associate Dean Tien-Fu Chen, Associate Dean I-Chen Wu, and Engineering Department Chair Jiun-Long Huang on the strengths of the two universities, international exchange programs, and collaborative research and faculty exchange in the fields of information science and technology.

After that, they exchanged ideas on temporary student transfers through overseas research support programs for master's students, mutual acceptance of graduate students for research internships and the like, invitation of faculty as special speakers in KUT graduate school lectures, future student exchanges, and more. While touring the cutting-edge NYCU computer science labs, they had a fruitful dialogue regarding future promotion of collaborative research and visits between the two universities.

With this exchange agreement, the two universities have deepened their future ties and confirmed that they are building a cooperative framework for the further promotion of education and research as well as the exchange of human capital.
