In 1919, NTCUST’s predecessor, Taichung Public School of Commerce in Taiwan, was founded during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan.
In 1921, the School was renamed to Taichung State School of Commerce.
In 1945, the School was again renamed to Taiwan Provincial Taichung Vocational High School of Commerce after the end of the Japanese occupation.
In 1949, the School incorporated Taiwan Provincial Taichung Cram School which became the Affiliated Vocational Cram School of Commerce.
In 1963, the School was renamed to Taiwan Provincial Taichung Junior College of Commerce.
In 1982, the School was promoted to a higher level and hence renamed to National Taichung Junior College of Commerce.
In 1999, the School became National Taichung Institute of Technology (NTIT), and its master’s program began recruiting students in 2003.
On December 1, 2011, with the approval of The Executive Yuan, NTIT merged with the National Taichung Nursing College and assumed the name of the National Taichung University of Science and Technology (NTCUST)
