The National Taiwan University of Science and Technology was founded on August1, 1974, as the National Taiwan Institute of Technology (NTIT). It was the first higher education institution of its kind within our nation's technical and vocational education system. By extending this system to the highest level, this new school was intended to meet the need created by our rapid economic and industrial development for highly trained bachelor's degree-level engineers and managers. In 1979 and 1982, NTIT added master's and doctoral programs, respectively.

Directions to Taiwan Tech:
By the Taipei Joint Bus System
By Express Bus (via freeway or expressway)
By the MRT
Getting from the Airport to Taiwan Tech:
1.The most direct and least expensive transportation is by one of the airport buses run by the Taiwan Bus Corp. After you exit the immigration and customs area, look for signs that say Airport Bus
機場巴士 These signs will bring you to the bus stop area of the terminal, where you can buy tickets for the bus. Buy a ticket for either the Kuokuang Line
國光號 or the Chunghsin Line 中興號 , which have the fewest stops between the airport and Taipei.
2.There are compartments under the bus which will be open for you to put your luggage in before you get on the bus. Don’t forget to get your luggage when you get off the bus!
3.Stay on the bus until the last stop, which will be near the Taipei Railway Station (台北車站) or the Sungshan Domestic Airport (松山機場) inside Taipei. (It really is inside the city!) When you get off the bus, the driver should open the compartment to let you take out your luggage. If he doesn’t, show the driver the following words: 行李 Luggage
4.Once you have gotten off the bus and have picked up your luggage, look for a taxi. Show the driver the address of our school: 國立台灣科技大學 基隆路四段43號 National Taiwan University of Science and Technology 43 Keelung Road, Section 4
This should get you safely to the main gate of the university.
Currency: It is a good idea to exchange some currency (about US$100 worth) for local NT dollars at the airport. This way you will have local currency to pay for your transportation to Taiwan Tech and other expenses during your first few days on campus.
