a. This college has a strong team of an excellent teaching staff, including both technical teachers and theoretical teachers with rich experiences within the industry. Basic practice courses are executed with the double-teachersystem (theoretical teacher plus technical teacher) to teach classes, thus the school has acquired outstanding achievements in teaching. Furthermore, each major in the college department also stipulates a practice system on and off campus with compulsory scores; the former is banquet practice on-campus, and the latter is off-campus practice (mainly five star restaurants within the country) for one year for senior students.
c. This college makes every endeavor towards internalization. Each department regularly undertakes teaching lectures given by internationally renowned chefs as guest teachers or who undertake demonstrative masters in a cooking symposium.
Since its foundation, our university has started from the concept of human concerns and has highlighted to the importance of cultivating students’ healthy thinking, morality, knowledge and expertise. The promotion of liberal education in our university is an extension of that spirit. In addition to building a humane and elegant learning environment, we also strengthen themes relating to “learning from service, life artistry, cultural quality and liberal lecture” into courses and activity plans for the purpose of realizing an all-inclusive education that achieves the unity of knowledge and practice. Relevant plans are described as follows:
b. Life artistry：Hospitality cooking combines the spiritual connotations of both the arts and life artistry. In addition to cultivating students’ professional qualities, our university also strengthens artistry and creative design into courses and activities and puts a complete set of knowledge and expertise of techniques, cultural art and a sense of beauty and creativity, as well as design, into hospitality cooking education.
c. Cultural qualities：Taiwan’s culinary culture industry research institute, established in 2008, is the first postgraduate research institute in our university, featuring “industry cultivation and culture industrialization” of culinary studies in order to deepen the humane qualities of the cooking college through cultural culinary research.
d. Liberal lecture：Famous scholars at home and abroad are invited to hold lectures and have conversations with both teachers and students. Excellent alumni within the hospitality industry are invited to share their concepts and experiences in the hospitality cooking industry. Through encouragement of and learning from master-level lecturers, students can strengthen their abilities in life and learning.
a. The Hospitality innovation R&D postgraduate program, approved in 2010, places emphasis on innovation of cooking skills, technology and science and research and development, in the hope of assisting in the construction of a scientific knowledge system of cooking in the country.
