To nurture leaders and professionals with international outlook, diversity value, and cross-cultural communication competence
Founded in 2014, the mission of International School of Technology and Management (ISTM) is to nurture professionals with international mobility. The school is dedicated to establishing 2+2 programs in joint collaboration with renowned universities worldwide. Students will be awarded 2 separate degrees upon successful completion of requirements from each institution.
In the first 2 years, students studying at 2+2 undergraduate programs will be based in FCU to complete the common core courses and other required/elective general courses within the curriculum of their chosen programs. For the 3rd and 4th year of their studies, students will take the required/elective core courses required by applicable partner institution.
ISTM collaborates with world's top tier universities in offering undergraduate 2+2 programs, and all of our programs are for highly-employable fields and in keeping with global trend. Furthermore, our partner institutions are located in world-class living enviorment and enjoy a plethora of culture, employment opportunity and friendliness towards international students.
With all English-taught courses and additional language proficiency support classes in place (Chinese language courses are offered for international students), the first 2 years of study in ISTM will assist our students to adapt to studying at our partner institutions. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with culture and customs of the Greater China economic area.
Such international academic cooperation entails not only curriculum standardization, but also mutual agreement between ISTM and the partner institution on the admission criteria as well as requirements for course credits, language proficiency and graduation. The effort of rigorous bilateral discussion is only to ensure that our program framework is tailored to facilitate seamless transition from FCU to partner institutions.
ISTM currently offer the following undergraduate 2+2 programs:FCU-Purdue Undergraduate 2+2 Program in Electrical Engineering & Computer Engineering
FCU-RMIT Undergraduate 2+2 Program in Business and Innovation
FCU-SJSU Undergraduate 2+2 Program in Business Analytics
SJSU Undergraduate 2+2 Program in Engineering (Electrical Engineering)
FCU-SFSU Undergraduate 2+2 Program in Computer Science
AACSB International Accreditation
AACSB International accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in management education. It is widely regarded as the highest level of accreditation for business schools, as only 25% of U.S. business schools achieve AACSB International accreditation.
FCU is accredited by the AACSB since 2014. Only 11 of Taiwan's colleges and universities are accredited by AACSB International.
To achieve and retain AACSB International accreditation, a business school must satisfy a wide range of rigorous quality standards, ensuring that the school:
- Manages resources to achieve a vibrant and relevant mission
- Advances business and management knowledge through faculty scholarship
- Provides high-caliber teaching of quality and current curricula
- Cultivates meaningful interaction between students and a qualified faculty
- Produces graduates who have achieved specified learning goals
IEET accreditation is a non-government, peer-review process with a student-outcomes based orientation. The purpose of which is to determine if a degree-granting program meets certain standards of quality. IEET has signed international agreements with well-respected international bodies (Washington Accord, Seoul Accord and Sydney Accord) responsible for accrediting engineering degree programs and also MOUs with ABET and JABEE to ensure its standards and obtain international recognition.
Feng Chia University's many degree programs are accredited by IEET including College of Engineering, College of Science and College of Information and Electrical Engineering.
