The total number of students at NCKU is about 22,000 and the number of graduate students is 10,000 registered. Approximately 1,400 of lecturers and professors instruct the students in school. The central government designates NCKU as the most important university to aim at internationalization with National Taiwan University.

NCKU has been a pioneering university in engineering and science from the foundation. One of the biggest features is to adopt close collaborations with industry for promoting fundamental researches. NCKU recently has received glowing reviews in medicine and biology as well, and they have conducted enthusiastic research activities in both fields.

NIMS and NCKU had collaborated with each other in specific themes and individual level researches until now; however, the closer and stronger collaboration and relationship between the two institutions than ever are highly expected in interactive researches by this CCA.
