A Brief Introduction

The General Education Center makes an NTUT

education a holistic one by providing courses in

humanism , social sciences , and natural sciences ,

which are further divided into six subcategories of

literature and arts , history and civilization ,

philosophy and virtue , democracy and law,

economics and management , and natural sciences

and logic , Students are required to complete at

least one course in all six subcategories and one

community service session to prepare them to be

professionals with a genuine concern for human

society and for the natural world . The Center also

eeks to build up students' Chinese abilities and

their connection with Chinese culture through

courses in Chinese classics . For international

students , however , the training focus is shifted to

general Chinese communication abilities .

 

   

 

 

The Center also frequently hosts extracurricular

activities such as student concerts , cultural exhibitions

, and seminars on films that seek to bring the

perspective of the humanities and cultural studies to

our technology-based University . Another important

role of the Center is to be the history keeper of the

University . Faculty members of the Center have been

engaged in research into the University's 100 years of

history through publications , personal diaries ,

photographs , and interviews with alumni . A book on

the history of the University has also been published by

the Center in celebration ofthe Unersity's centennial

milestone .
