This university was founded by Dr. Chen Tien-Chi in 1966 under the name - Chungtai Junior College. After almost thirty-nine years, on July 1, 1998, approval was granted to upgrade to a Medical Technology College. Later, on August 1, 2005, the college was upgraded to the University of Science and Technology. Over the years Chung Tai has grown, not only as a provider of technical expertise but as a sphere of humane and life-affirming academic study.
The university system is made up of a school of graduate studies, four-year and two-year colleges, and a five-year senior college program.
