|Dear Friends of NTHU globally:|
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO WATCH A SHORT VIDEO ENTITLED “INDIAN STUDENTS RECRUITMENT PROGRAM, NATIONAL TSING HUA UNIVERSITY.”
For the past decade, National Tsing Hua University without fanfare initiated an interaction with India.
It began with a few graduate students enrolling in the University, mostly in the chemistry department. In ten years, that interaction has blossomed. Today, NTHU has close relationship with ten top Indian universities, a dual-PhD program with one of India’s best, IIT Madras, having many young Indian students interning in the summer on campus (and did extraordinarily well, I might add,) having over 150 Indian graduate students and postdocs pursuing degrees and research in all disciplines on campus (which is ¼ of all Indians pursuing education opportunities in Taiwan,) organized the largest DIWALI festival celebration in this part of the world and last but not least, establishing FOUR Taiwan education centers throughout India.
As far as recruiting Indian students to study as undergrads and grads in NTHU, our effort to date can at best be termed as ad hoc. Today, NTHU’s administration feels that with all the above exciting developments as underpinnings, the time has arrived for us to begin a comprehensive strategic effort in recruiting the best of the best from India to seek education opportunities in NTHU. For us, we consider this is a solemn responsibility NTHU has to shoulder as one of the most outstanding research universities in Asia today!
One of our first efforts is to produce a video specifically targeting Indian students, both grads and undergrads. In this video we hope that we have provided for the viewer a comprehensive portrayal of the intellectual ambiance of NTHU. We also want to manifest the employment opportunities in Hsinchu, the city which NTHU is at and is unquestionably the most successful science and technology city in this part of Asia.
