The promotion of academic exchanges at CYCU can be dated back to 1970s. When the University was still named as Chung Yuan Christian College of Science and Engineering (CYCC), Missionary-Teacher Program was launched by the ex-president Han wei in 1973.
The Committee for Research and Development of CYCU was founded in August, 1973. The Office of Research and Development is established in 1995, based on the mission of “coordinating and integrating resources for research and planning the university’s long-term future development”. In Dec, 2016, due to the restriction of the administrative units, the office extended to four divisions, namely, University Planning & Development Division, Research Services Division, Competitiveness Development Center and i Campus Center. The office also established the Tai-Chang Equipment Center.
To implement the school mission of "To exert students' potential to the full is success," the Office of Career Development is responsible for implementing relevant policies of the Industrial College. We are dedicated to knowledge-action Integration and career services. With the industrial resources, we strive to prepare students to be workforce ready by providing practical programs including Interdisciplinary Programs, Employment Programs, internship and Career Services. In addition, strong relationships with industries are also built, and external resources are provided from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, and the Ministry of Labor.
The Office of Student Affairs, with the spirit of ‘dedicating itself sincerely, acting with goodwill, and seeking perfection,’ engages in student affairs in every aspect. Pursuing the aim of achieving spiritual growth as an earnest and grateful doer, the Office is devoted to making students love both themselves and others, hold a firm belief in justice, develop a cosmopolitan outlook, demonstrate activeness and self-discipline, and maintain the university’s good tradition: ‘Trust and Act.’ The Office of Student Affairs consists of the following divisions:
