The University

National Pingtung University of Science and Technology (NPUST) was founded in 1924 under the name of "Kaohsiung State Pingtung Extension School of Agriculture." Subsequently in 1928, this school was expanded and renamed as "Kaohsiung State Pingtung Agricultural School". After Taiwan was liberated from Japanese colonial rule in August 1945, this school again changed her name to "Taiwan Provincial Pingtung Agricultural Vocational School of Agriculture" in November of that year. This school was then upgraded to "Taiwan Provincial Institute of Agriculture" in 1954, enabling a subsequent integration of this Institute with the Pingtung Agricultural Vocational High school in 1963. After this integration, the Institute went through a series of upgrades and name changes, including "Taiwan Provincial Pingtung Institute of Agriculture" in 1964, "National Pingtung Institute of Agriculture" in July 1981, "National Pingtung Polytechnic Institute" in July 1991, and then the "National Pingtung University of Science and Technology" in August 1997. Currently NPUST has a total of 27 departments and 32 graduate institutes offering Master's degrees and 8 Doctoral programs. These departments and graduate institutes are distributed among four colleges: agriculture, engineering, management, and humanities and social sciences.
