The four universities jointly offered general education courses and in 2009 began promoting ‘Cultural Studies’ and ‘Technology and Society,’ two courses integrating teaching and research in humanities and social sciences. In 2008 ‘Sociological Imagination’, ‘Network Information Behavior’ and ‘Medicine, Health and Life’ were introduced. The four universities now have liberal roving courses, which began with Yang-ming University’s offering of ‘Medicine, Health and Life. In 2010 five liberal studies were added with ‘Brain and Learning’, ‘Introduction to Advertising’, ‘US Politics’, ‘Marketing Management’ and ‘Culture and Music: Listening to Romeo and Juliet’ as lecture courses and distance learning. In 2011 UST promoted ‘Beyond the Future: Technology and Social Classic Lecture Series’ as a remote learning class, with teachers from each school individually participating in the discussions. ‘Water Resources: Technology and Life Politics’ was also introduced, followed in turn by classes on the themes of ‘Energy and Sustainability,’ ‘Disputes,’ and ‘Health’.

2.Building OCW (Open Courseware)

Open CourseWare (OCW) originated in 2001 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). OCW was developed to share resources in school education, and to give something back to the community that supports the school. In 2005 MIT launched the OpenCourseWare Consortium (OCWC), an organization which now encompasses 135 schools in 29 countries. OCW is offered for off-campus students and self-learners at any time and anywhere for free, providing Search Without Borders and free access to view or download course materials, for self-learning and improvement. Taiwan's efforts in OCW began at National Chiao Tung University with the formal establishment of the Taiwan OpenCourseWare Consortium (TOCWC) on December 24, 2008. TOCWC serves to tear down the walls surrounding knowledge and fences around universities so that all who want to learn have an equal opportunity through freedom of access to these valuable stores of knowledge. TOCWC has built 124 OCW courses including , about 100 audio-video courses, attracting more than 2.5 million site visits in 2010 and more than 3 million visits in 2011. This covers at least 240,000 users, including more than 40,000 users from overseas regions. TOCWC also participated in the global OCW Alliance achievements conference held in Cambridge, UK, on April 16, 2012. with one highlight being the awarding of the Landmark site Award to National Chiao Tung University.

The Master’s and undergraduate programs offer joint testing and admission so that candidates for the four universities need only to fill out one application and take one written examination for admission to any of the four schools. In 2012 the graduate school for science and engineering received 3,010 applications registration (403 were admitted), up from the 2,439 applications (with 177 admitted) received in 2011.

5.Establishment of an Inter-institution International Degree Program

The Interdisciplinary English International Program was created to attract the best international students and to lend domestic students a greater international perspective.
