National Sun Yat Sen University


In 1923, just two years before his untimely demise, the Founding Father of the Republic of China (ROC), Dr. Sun Yat-sen, established two universities, one civil and one military. The civil university was Kwangtung University (renamed Chungshan University in 1926), and the military university was Whampoa Military Academy.  


There are six colleges: Liberal Arts, Science, Engineering, Management, Marine Sciences, and Social Sciences, and one general education center. Equal emphasis is placed on the teaching and research of humanities as well as science and engineering. Since 2006 NSYSU has been granted by the Ministry of Education through the “Aim for the Top University Plan” to improve teaching and research.
