National Chung Hsing University (NCHU; Chinese: 國立中興大學)[6] is a research-led comprehensive university in South District, Taichung, Taiwan.[citation needed]

Currently, NCHU is among the four universities of Taiwan's Public Ivy - the Taiwan Comprehensive University System.


The university was originally founded as Advanced Academy of Agronomy and Forestry in Taihoku Prefecture in 1919. In 1928, the academy became a department affiliated to Taihoku Imperial University. In 1943, the department became an independent entity again and moved to Taichū Prefecture. After the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China in 1945, the school was reorganized and became Taiwan Provincial Taichung Agricultural Junior College. In 1946, it was upgraded to Taiwan Provincial College of Agriculture. In 1961, it merged with the newly established College of Science and Engineering and College of Law and Business and became Taiwan Provincial Chung Hsing University. In 1971, it became a national university and was named National Chung Hsing University.[7]


The Taichung Campus contains the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the College of Science, the College of Engineering, the College of Life Sciences, the College of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Social Sciences and Management, and the Extension Division for Inservice and Continuing Education. It is located in the south of Taichung City with an area of approximately 53 hectares. The university owns four experimental forests located in New Taipei City, Nantou County, Taichung City, and Tainan City, respectively. It also owns two experimental farms located at Wufeng and Wuri Districts in Taichung City.


NCHU has 9 colleges: Agriculture and Natural Resources, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Engineering, Law and Politics, Liberal Arts, Life Sciences, Management, Science, and Veterinary Medicine.[8]
