To respond to the globalization trend and to boost further international cooperation, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Taiwan started expanding the domain of relationships with overseas universities since many years ago, viewing Southeast Asia as one of the key areas that NCKU would like to have strategic development with. For the purpose of deeper relationship and better communication with partner universities in Southeast Asia, NCKU established 3 NCKU Overseas Hubs with University of Malaya, Malaysia in September, 2017, with University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in November, 2017, with Mahidol University, Thailand in November, 2019.

As the base of connection between Taiwan and Southeast Asia region, the NCKU Overseas Hubs keep intensifying and developing 4 main strategic pillars, including “Joint Research Projects”, “International Education”, “Academia-Industry Cooperation” and “Young Talent Cultivation”. Through combining NCKU’s key policies and the local industrial trends to execute the yearly plan with the main axis, we expect to achieve win-win by integrating all resources with our partners.
