  • In 1965, the two-year night-school program was set up to offer training in the field of Chemical, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic, and Mold & Die Engineering, as well as Industrial Engineering & Management.

  • In 1972, the Institute initiated a two-year daytime program for senior high school (vocational) graduates. It was offered in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical, Mold & Die Engineering as well as Industrial Engineering & Management Departments.

  • In October 1979, the Supplementary School affiliated with the Institute was founded. It offered two-year programs for young professionals. The course took three years to complete and was held on Saturday nights and Sundays in the field of engineering.

  • In October 1991, Dr. Kuang-Chih Huang was appointed the Head of the Institute. He strengthened the faculty and enhanced the quality of teaching and of research.
