2017 NCKU International Summer School (updated)

2017 NCKU International Summer School


2017 NCKU International Summer School is scheduled from July 20th to August 4th. This year, our program features Circular Economy (CE) as the theme of core course, and also the Chinese language and cultural classes, as they have always been of great interest to foreign students worldwide. CE courses demonstrate a clever and systematic use of technology on business and daily life can actually benefit the people and the environment at the same time. A thread of interdisciplinary classes will be provided in English intensively in a two-week period. Two credits will be awarded to students who fulfill the course requirement successfully. Through this program, we invite students to visit NCKU to learn more about the educational environment, people, and culture around Taiwan!
