Taking the lead!


Located along the southwest coast of Taiwan in Tainan City, Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology (STUST) is a competitive international university dedicated to providing students a well-rounded education in both the humanities and technology. Founded in 1969, STUST has quickly moved from a junior college of technology to a full-fledged university with an emphasis on both teaching and research. STUST is composed of 4 colleges: The College of Engineering, The College of Business, The College of Digital Design, and The College of Humanities and Social Sciences with 24 departments, 32 master programs, and 4 doctoral programs. We currently have more than 18,622 (the 6th largest in Taiwan) enrolled students, of which 800 are international students coming from 38 different countries. Our faculty of 576 strives to establish a strong global mindset and independent thinking in each of our students. The campus area is about 16.5 hectares.

STUST provides a comfortable living environment for international students; each dorm room is moderately furnished with a shower, bed, wardrobe, bookshelf, desk, and telephone. Students have to prepare bedding, pillows, blankets, bed sheets, and a mattress (all of which can easily be obtained at a local hypermarket). Phones are for inbound calls only, outbound calls cannot be made from dorm phones. Pay phones are available in the lobby of the dorm. Dorm reservations are automatically made for international students. Residence halls have laundry facilities and TV room located on 13th floor. You can rent a refrigerator to keep in the room and a kitchenette is available at the end of the 4th floor in Dorm 6.

In addition to these facilities, there are well-built facilities for sports, including tennis courts, volleyball courts, basketball courts and a track and field. Furthermore, a great number of trees and flowers have been planted on campus. The soothing green lawn, foliage, and shade beautifully contrast with all of STUST's red brick buildings. Almost year round you can find students either studying or grabbing a bite to eat outside in one of the many gardens or outdoor recreational areas.
