The College of Planning and Design, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), emerged in August 2003 from the College of Engineering, and included the Department of Architecture, Department of Urban Planning, Department of Industrial Design and Institute of Creative Industries Design. In this globalized world, we realize that creating a niche of our own is the key to success. Creative thinking and innovation, well beyond simply labour, provide added value in a knowledge economy and information society. As an incubator of creativity, our College bears the responsibility to capture society’s demands, from both local and global perspectives. Practically speaking, we pursue a better application of innovation by bringing together technology, cultures and real life knowledge to improve quality of living. To offer a sustainable academia for studying and learning quality of living environment is the primary goal of the College of Planning and Design. The key strategy for achieving our goal is to promote a multi-disciplinary academic environment by integrating teaching, research and practice, collaborating with domestic and international colleges, and working with public and private sectors including governments, communities, non-profit organizations and entrepreneurs.
