MCU Mission

Upholding the mission of “One key concept expressed three ways”, Ming Chuan University prides itself on providing an educational setting which attends to all students with parental care, support, and guidance. As a comprehensive institution of higher education, Ming Chuan University strives for excellence in teaching and learning through theory-based, application-oriented education to prepare learners with professionalism, team spirit and broad worldviews for internationalization.

Theory-based and application-oriented education

Our educational principle insists on theory-based, application-oriented education, which coordinates professional courses, utility courses (four years of English courses and three years of information technology courses) and general education to make sure all our graduates benefit from theory-based, application-oriented education. We implement holistic education to nurture students’ characters through seminars, graduation thesis, graduation project design, strict discipline, and diligent teaching. Our graduates compete well with their peers for both further education and employment rate.

Excellent competitive ability

Ming Chuan University has 11 schools: Management, Communication, Law, Design, Applied Language, Information Technology, Tourism, Social Sciences, Health Technology, Finacial Technology, and International College. In step with the quick developments of globalization and knowledge-based economy, our Schools not only hire faculty members with doctorate degrees, but also orient their teaching and research with the university’s interdisciplinary integration, continuous development, competitiveness, and societal demand. To achieve this goal, each graduate school and department must promote their own professional features and competitive edge, promote the quality of teaching, research and service, and enhance students’ competence through faculty member evaluation and regular teaching evaluation scoring.

Complete e-learning environment

In this 21st-century information technology age, students must nurture the ability to search for, analyzing, processing and integrating information. Due to the applications of network technology in the learning environment, the relevant technology is maturing. The outcome of teaching through the global information network is excellent and will be a key development for the university.

To encourage multi-faced teaching and learning, our university has established a complete e-learning environment. The expansion into Network University allows students to study without the limits of space and time. Students can repeat the teaching material online to promote their learning outcomes. Network teaching allows students to learn without requiring time- and space-constrained interaction between the faculty members and students, which is a huge challenge of the traditional teaching mode.

In support of networking and high-tech teaching, we have equipped all classrooms on both campuses to be e-classrooms. We will continue to develop more online courses for students to promote the quality of teaching, research, service, and students’ competitiveness.

Educational Philosophies

Ming Chuan University was established upon Founder Pao’s educational philosophies, including:

  1. Attending to all students with parental care, support, and guidance
  2. Strict Discipline and Diligent Teaching
  3. Encouraging keen effort in teaching
  4. Matching instruction in theory with experience in application
  5. Stressing both the humanities and technology

The university aims at the realization of practical education, encouraging students to incorporate practice and theory so they can enter the workforce immediately after graduation. In light of increasing globalization and global Chinese fever, the university strives to prepare students to face global competition through the integration of education theories in this Chinese institution and partner overseas universities. In addition to learning from successful education experience, Ming Chuan seeks to better nurture its students under the educational philosophy: the localization of global knowledge and the inculcation of local knowledge into the world.

To achieve the ultimate goal of developing into an outstanding international university, the university will make every effort to carry forward its quality education and commit itself to international excellence in teaching and research.

Educational Goals

Internationalization

In response to the growing needs for academic advancement, the university has made great improvements in facilitating resource sharing and its talent management system. Recent achievements include e-classroom services and e-portfolio system for students and faculty members.
