Goals & Strategies

Goals:
1.
Green internationalized academic development and talent cultivation
    NTTU aims to form an international green university-cum-GKE industrial innovation center to assist local industries toward the development and transformation of GKE industries. Furthermore, NTTU aims to establish successful models of smart, healthy urban and rural areas and new agricultural and circular economies through integrating interdisciplinary learning paths and driving teaching innovations, research development, and talent cultivation based in wisdom, health, sustainability, and aesthetics through collaborations with local industries.
2.
Green internationalized academic innovation and professional services
    Intelligent innovation, energy conservation, and a balanced ecosystem of the college campus can fully support NTTU’s teaching and autonomous learning culture; simultaneously, its service-oriented campus management demonstrates its professional, warm, harmonious, and efficient administrative culture. NTTU hopes its campus culture will be rooted in its faculty, staff, and students and have a positive influence on all visitors to the university.
Strategies
1.
Talent cultivation
1-1
Reinforcing interdisciplinary learning and curriculum teaching
    Academic departments are dedicated to the development of courses and programs related to wisdom, health, sustainability, and aesthetics, integrating interdisciplinary learning paths to introduce core occupational capacities and employment paths. These courses and programs also combine the active engagement and investment of local GKE industries in teaching, research, promotion, talent cultivation, and international exchanges.

Enhancing professional skills and learning outcomes
    NTTU will establish a rewards system to form a connected community that enables faculty and students to participate in international green university activities and a campus culture founded on wisdom, health, sustainability, and aesthetics. This rewards system—combined with integrated courses and student groups to conduct guided tours of demonstration sites, GKE industry tours, community tours, and international exchanges—will encourage commitment to specialized creations and achievements and establish learning outcomes. NTTU expects its entire faculty, staff, and student body to have a profound understanding of the international green university initiative and to embrace the principles of wisdom, health, sustainability, and aesthetics in their campus lives.

Intelligent campus
    On the premise that campus buildings comply with the Ecology, Energy Saving, Waste Reduction, and Health (EEWH) standards and continual progress is made toward intelligent, green buildings, NTTU will build pilot venues that integrate intelligent, green buildings with intelligent campus application interfaces to create an innovative campus that drives autonomous learning, health, and sustainability. These efforts will gradually shape a learning, work, and living environment that is intelligent, healthy, sustainable, aesthetic, safe, diverse, and international, while encouraging NTTU faculty and students to engage in teachings, research, and projects related to intelligent green campuses. Additionally, NTTU will develop an intelligent decision system for academic affairs to reinforce its management efficacy as an international green university and establish a long-term tracking and improvement system to assist administrative and academic departments in implementing campus management measures and demonstrating service quality.
