Achievements of CGU 1. The Ministry of Education launched the “Top University Project” in 2005 to support top-performing domestic universities to develop into international educational and research powerhouses. Under this project, the Ministry of Education sponsors 12 scholarly excellent universities with 50 billion dollars over 5 years. Chang Gung University is the only private university that was selected in both the 1st stage and the 2nd stage of this project. 2. Chang Gung University was ranked 402nd in the 2011 Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities. Its ranking has been rising steadily in the world’s top-performing university report and has made its 4th appearance in the top 500 chart. Closely following National Taiwan University, National Cheng Kung University, National Jiao Tong University, National Tsing Hua University, CGU is still the only private university in Taiwan which has ever made it into the top 500 chart. 3. Chang Gung University stands out remarkably well in every year’s university evaluation held by the Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan (HEEACT).

Our school was established in April 1987 as the Chang Gung Medical College, and at that time had a mission of training outstanding medical personnel. To meet the needs of the country's economic development, we later added departments and graduate schools of engineering and management, enabling us to broaden our instructional resources and turn out talented workers in medicine, engineering, and management. Our engineering and management have accepted students since 1993, at which time the Ministry of Education permitted us to change our name to “Chang Gung College of Medicine and Technology.” After adding more departments in the subsequent years, the Ministry of Education formally approved our upgrading and name change to “Chang Gung University” in July 1997.

The University currently consists of the College of Medicine, College of Engineering, and College of Management; under which are the undergraduate programs that include Departments of Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Nursing, Medical Biotechnology and Laboratory Science, Medical Imaging and Radiological Science, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Respiratory Care, Biomedical Sciences, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical and Materials Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Information Engineering, Health Care Management, Business Administration, Industrial Design and Information Management.
The graduate institutes include Nursing Sciences (Master), Biomedical Sciences (Master/Ph.D.), Clinical Medical Sciences (Master/Ph.D.), Traditional Chinese Medicine (Master), Medical Biotechnology (Master), Rehabilitation Science (Master), Clinical Behavioral Science (Master), Dental and Craniofacial Science (Master), Early Intervention (Master), Electrical Engineering (M.S., Ph.D.), Mechanical Engineering (Master/Ph.D.), Chemical and Materials Engineering (Master/Ph.D.), Electronic Engineering (Master/Ph.D.), Computer Science and Information Engineering (Master), Electro-Optical Engineering (Master), Biochemical and Biomedical Engineering (Master), Medical Mechatronics Science (Master), Health Care Management (Master), Information Management (Master), Business Administration (Master/Ph.D.), and Industrial Design (Master). The University currently has approximately 581 full-time and 666 adjunct faculty members and has more than 7,200 students enrolled.

We have been striving for excellence in both instruction and research areas since the establishment of our institution. While we have been continuously hiring outstanding scholars and experts to join our faculty community, our faculty members have played active roles in national-level research projects sponsored by the National Science Council, National Institute of Health, and other organizations. And in order to educate and shape our students to be “diligent, perseverant, frugal, and trustworthy” and well-versed in both theory and practice, we have instituted an extracurricular practicum system and been working closely with Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, the Formosa Plastics Group, and other institutions to conduct work-study programs.

The developmental goal of our university is to turn from a teaching-oriented university to research-oriented one. We will continue to improve the quality of the teaching staff, equipments, and instruction, as well as to let students to have more opportunities of engaging in humanity studies. In taking advantage of Formosa Plastics Group's abundant manufacturing and medical service resources, Chang Gung University aims to be a first-rate internationally renowned university that prepares high standard professional talents in the fields of medical science, high technology, and knowledge management.
