“NKUST is well-known for cultivating researching and engineering talents for industries, and it has an enormous alumni network domestically and internationally,” says NKUST President Yang. As many enterprises realize that the cost putting into nurturing talents is growing, they are increasingly partnering with universities that help foster student talents.
Through cooperation, the company gets a head start on hiring for hard-to-fill highly-skilled roles. In fact, NKUST offers a wide range of programs specifically designed for industries based in Taiwan or Southeast Asian countries. Whether it is connecting the businesses to the talent pool or the government's New Southbound Policy, there are creative and custom strategies that NKUST can offer. Our goal is to quickly connect the businesses’ needs with the resources at NKUST.
