The National Taipei University, National Taipei University of Science and Technology and Taipei Medical University are all well-known institutions of higher learning with a fine tradition in Northern Taiwan. They are all based on the capital “Taipei” and have the advantage of convenient transportation. The three schools have their own characteristics and have outstanding performance in their respective fields. However, compared with the top international schools, the three schools are limited by scale. In the face of fierce international competition in the future, in addition to actively strengthening the integration of various fields in the school, it is necessary to establish a joint university system to combine the teaching research of the three schools. Energy, integrate resources to expand scale, complement each other, improve the quality and academic standards of the three schools, and achieve the goal of a world-class university. On May 19, 2009, President Qiu Wenda of Taipei Medical University, President Li Zutian of Taipei University of Science and Technology, and President Hou Chongwen of Taipei University jointly decided to form the “Taipei Union University System”. After the intensive consultations between the three schools, the study plan and system organization and operation methods were approved by the school conferences and submitted to the Ministry of Education for approval on February 14, 2011. National Taiwan Ocean University is an internationally renowned institution with marine professional characteristics. It joined the Taipei Union University System in 2014.
In conjunction with the platform of the University of Taipei’s system to strengthen cooperation, the Vietnam Regional Economic, Trade and Industry Resource Center Cross-School Committee was established to develop cooperation opportunities for industry, education, culture and education in the coastal areas of Vietnam. After the establishment of the center, the center will be used as a platform to closely integrate the resources of industry and education between Taiwan and Vietnam, effectively connecting Taiwan and Vietnam, promoting exchanges between the two peoples and enhancing the friendship between the two peoples.
