Taiwan Education Center, Thailand
National Pingtung University of Science and Technology (NPUST) ’s academic ties in Thailand have been flourishing for decades. Common interests and common attitudes towards research and academic development have kept exchanges healthy – and active. By 1998, NPUST had already forged sister-school relationships with two of Thailand’s top institutes of learning. At present, the number stands at 38.
When the Taiwan Ministry of Education asked NPUST to host the Taiwan Education Center (TEC) in Thailand, it was honored. To get the new enterprise going, NPUST called on one of its closest friends in the country, Kasetsart University, who agreed to give the TEC a home on their beautiful campus in Bangkok – it was a privilege. From this central command center, NPUST worked to set up branches in a few other locations to give more Thai students the chance to benefit from the valuable resources it offers. Maejo University in Chiang Mai, and Rajamangala University of Technology Isan in Nakhon Ratchasima graciously accepted the offer.
Now, partnering with 4 of NPUST’s sister-schools, the Taiwan Education Center in Thailand is facilitating interaction between academic and research institutions in Taiwan and Thailand, providing Thai students with language learning resources, creating opportunities for exchange, and promoting projects beneficial to development in both countries.
