The Graduate School of Advanced Technology (GSAT) at National Taiwan University (NTU) was established in accordance with the "Industry-University Cooperation and Talent Cultivation and Innovation in Key Fields Act," which was passed by the Legislative Yuan. The primary objective is to support the advancement of key industries in the country, secure a core position in the global supply chain, and become a crucial hub for next-generation technologies.
NTU founded GSAT to align with the country's long-term talent cultivation policy, address concerns regarding talent shortages in Taiwan industries, and enhance technological prowess in critical areas, such as semiconductors. To achieve these goals, NTU GSAT operates differently from current NTU colleges and departments, involving the renewal of various laws and regulations and allowing for flexible operation in matters such as organization, personnel, procurement, finance/expenditure, and property management.
The key objectives of GSAT are:
- Establish a public-private co-education, co-creation, and co-prosperity mechanism between academia and industry.
- Foster close collaboration between academic institutions and industries, ensuring that academic research and industrial technology development progress hand-in-hand.
- Cultivate high-quality talents capable of leading academic research and innovation, thereby driving industrial development.
