National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT; Chinese: 國立臺北科技大學), a top-ranked public university in Taiwan, is located in the Daan District of Taipei City, Taiwan. The university is headed by Dr. Leehter Yao, who serves as the president. NTUT is ranked 551-600 globally in 2015 and 124th in Asia in 2015 by QS World University Rankings.[2][3] NTUT is also ranked in the areas of Computer Science and Information Systems and Engineering - Electrical and Electronic. [4] NTUT is ranked in the Top 10% in industry income in 2016 in the world.[5] NTUT is ranked 151-200 in the world by 2016 QS Graduate Employability Ranking.[6]


The university traces its origins to the establishment of the School of Industrial Instruction (工業講習所) in 1912. This institution underwent several name changes and reorganizations during the Japanese colonial period in Taiwan. By the time the (Nationalist) Republic of China central government was about to settle from the Chinese mainland to Taiwan (as an outcome of the civil war against the Communist regime), this technical institution was renamed Provincial Taipei Institute of Technology (臺灣省立臺北工業專科學校) in 1948, and served as a junior vocational technical college. In 1981, it was renamed National Taipei Institute of Technology (國立臺北工業專科學校), and in the 1990s upgraded its junior college status to that of a university, resulting in the final name change to National Taipei University of Technology (國立臺北科技大學) in 1997. The university currently has 451 full-time faculty members.
