As the result of the merger, NKUST not only incorporates the strengths of the three universities—strong connections with industries, innovation and entrepreneurship, and ocean technologies—into the new university, but it also has great advantages in the aspects of vast campuses, strong human resources, complementary resources, and diverse cultural assets, which makes a lively and vigorous academic community and learning environment for students.
