OIA introduction

The OIA staff believe that "internationalization" means more than the number of foreign students or collaborative projects. We consider it our mandate to create a learning and research environment with a global vision. The expansion of internationalized education, research and collaboration and their higher visibility on the campus are our present objectives as OIA assists our faculty and students in their quest for internationalization and excellence.The Office of International Affairs at National Taipei University of Technology was established on August 1, 2010, to enhance the internationalization of the university through the recruitment of more foreign students and the promotion of more exchange and collaboration with foreign partners. Integrating the International Student Section from the Office of Academic Affairs and the International Cooperation Section from the Research and Development Office, OIA strives to better serve the growing needs of Taipei Tech as it pursues the goals of internationalization.
