Introduction

Lastest release date: Nov 01, 2016

With the advent of the new era, the developmental trend is toward international trade freedom, regional economic integration, and overall technological competition. To conform to such a trend and add to competitive power, all countries in the world devote their efforts to promoting the knowledge economy and establishing knowledge creativeness. Taiwan is also at this critical point of upward movement.



As a medical professional and scholar, Dr. Chang-hai Tsai, our founder, believes that education is the basis of a country’s future and by establishing this university, Dr. Tsai hopes that he may contribute more to his homeland. Therefore, he and the other founder, Mr. Tseng-lien Lin, as well as all the other trustees, endowed funds to found an internationalized higher education institute which possesses vision, uniqueness, and excellence. Their goal is to cultivate professionals in the fields of Health Science, Computer Science, Management, and Arts and Sciences. These professionals will expand the horizon of our national development.



In 1998, the trustees started to search for a suitable location for the university. After much research and surveys, they decided on the site in Wufeng, Taichung county. Wufeng is where the provincial council used to hold its meetings. It is on a convenient location, with beautiful scenery, and rich in cultural atmosphere, which are ideal for schools. In August of 1999, the board of trustees acquired the lands released by Taiwan Sugar Corporation to build the university. In October of 1999, the preparatory office of Taichung Healthcare and Management University officially begin operations. In March of 2001, the Ministry of Education approved the university’s legal status. After four years hard work and efforts, Taichung Healthcare and Management University has been renamed as Asia University since August

There are four on-campus dormitories, and each room in the dormitory is equipped with four beds, a bathroom, a toilet, central air-conditioning, and Internet access. Coin-operated washing machines, dryers, hot/cold water machines and other amenities are also available in each dormitory. Moreover, vending machines containing snacks and beverages are located throughout the campus and in dormitory lobbies. In addition, the third dormitory provides treadmills for students to exercise. The gymnasium and stadium are also nearby in which more exercise facilities are available.
