Purpose of Establishment

    Globalization has made international exchanges more frequent and turned traveling jobs into the norm in many industries, including the information, high-tech, and financial industries. Many global enterprises based in Europe, the US, and Japan have established facilities, branches, and subsidiaries in Taiwan. Thus, there is a growing demand for international talent. Some of our students have also chosen to continue their studies abroad to pursue master’s or doctoral degrees. To keep up with this trend of increased international interactions, fostering language proficiency is of the utmost importance.     

    In recent years, globalization is one of the hottest topics in various sectors of Taiwan. For many businesses, the first hurdle to overcome in globalization is language. To ensure that elites can integrate into the global community, many large corporations, even domestic ones, include English proficiency as a job requirement. In order to stand out from the competition, English proficiency is the key to securing a job.      

    Given the interconnectivity of modern technologies and networks, international education has become a growing trend for the new generation. In this respect, after taking into account the circumstances of domestic and overseas industries, as well as the needs of students for pursuing international studies and careers, the Department of Applied Mathematics officially established the EMI Program in the 2022 academic year in order to stay ahead in the cultivation of exceptional international elites and to foster students who can integrate into the global community. By boosting students’ competitiveness in further studies and career development, we can open the door to more opportunities for our graduates.

Program Curriculum

    The EMI Program comprises of an international faculty and carries out instruction for all required courses and some elective courses entirely in English.
