NCKU started out as the Tainan Technical College, established in 1931 by the Japanese colonial government. When Japanese rule in Taiwan ended, the school was renamed the Taiwan Provincial College of Engineering and comprised six departments. As its curriculum expanded and the government of the Republic of China moved to Taiwan, the school was transformed into the Provincial Cheng Kung University, after the Chinese military leader known for defeating Dutch outposts in Taiwan. In 1971, the school gained recognition as a national university and assumed its current name.
Today, NCKU has 11 campuses in the greater Tainan area. In 2011, the university also opened the Y.S. Sun Green Building Research Center, Taiwan's first zero-carbon building and the first green educational center in the world.
NCKU has also been recognized as a leading research university in Taiwan. The university has worked with the Taiwanese government on several projects, playing a vital role in Taiwan's transition to an industrialized economy in the 1960s and 1970s. The university has also consistently received funding from Taiwan's Ministry of Education for its academic performance and research potential. In addition to these achievements, NCKU is the only Taiwanese member of the Worldwide Universities Network.
NCKU is also home to several university-level research centers. These research centers specialize in a diverse range of fields, including intelligent manufacturing, energy technology and strategy, medical device innovation, green energy materials, and wound repair and regeneration.
