Lastest release date: Oct 19, 2016

TransWorld University (TWU) is located in beautiful Yunlin County in west-central Taiwan. It is near Sun Moon Lake and Alishan Mountain, two popular destinations in Taiwan. TransWorld University‘s motto is “Cherish honesty, Practice integrity” and is built on the four pillars of Wisdom, Innovation, Cooperation, and Competition.



Wisdom: Knowledge that produces social values of innovation.

Innovation: Change that creates a new dimension of performance.

Cooperation: Encouraging teamwork across the colleges and departments.

Competition: Enhancing the competitiveness of TWU as a whole.



The University was officially founded in 1992 as Transworld Junior College of Commerce, a commerce-based junior college. It was officially upgraded to a four-year institute in 2000 and changed its name to Transworld Institute of Technology. On August 1, 2010, Transworld Institute of Technology is approved by the Ministry of Education as TransWorld University. In 2011, TransWorld University is honored with NT$60 million in “Teaching Excellence Awards” from Taiwan's Ministry of Education (MOE). In 2013, TransWorld University is granted NT$45 million from MOE for the 2nd consecutive time. TWU has grown rapidly in its short history from a total of 750 students and 7 academic departments during its first semester to about 6,000 students and 15 departments and 5 graduate institutes today.



Students at TransWorld University study in one of the school’s 4 colleges or 5 graduate programs. TWU currently offers associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in the College of Management, the College of Design, the College of Hospitality & Tourism, and the College of Health Sciences, the Graduate Institutes of Environmental Resources Management, Strategic Management of Small & Medium Enterprise, Biotechnology, Visual Communication Design, and Public Affairs Management (Executive MBA Program). The University is always working on developing into a diversified institution.



TransWorld University is based on a lovely campus, Chia-Tong, closer to Douliu City, the largest city in the county. The campus was built after learning from famous universities in England, Japan, and the United States. The innovative campus was constructed incorporating some sculptural artistic design to enhance and reflect the university’s uniqueness. Chia-Tong Campus has proudly been acclaimed a unique campus among the universities of technology in Taiwan.
