Brief introduction

  1. To meet with the needs of economic development, and of national cultural policies, we aim to cultivate professional designers with outstanding skills as our goal.
  2. Through the training programs, students will be equipped with professional skills as to understand the market trend, new technology, design aesthetic, academic research, creative thinking and capability, etc.
  3. We offer interdisciplinary programs by using art and design resources to develop cultural creative designs, to enhance features of Taiwan, and to promote the quality of designs, etc.
  4. We try our effort to promote international design culture exchange as well as international competitiveness.

Feature development

Our department is the first professional design department established in Taiwan, which inherits from the features of traditional and prospective visions of visual communication design.
