To integrate the research and development resources within the school and construct a platform for communication with other universities, our school began preparing to establish a research and development office in early 2006. After multiple coordination efforts by various departments within the school, it was submitted for discussion and review at various levels of meetings within the school and was incorporated into the school's organizational regulations with some articles amended. On December 27th, 2006, it was officially approved at the first school council meeting of the 95th academic year. On January 25th, 2007, it was officially approved by the Ministry of Education with the letter number TAI-GAO (II) 0960000758. On February 1st, 2007, it was officially launched.
Initially, the Research and Development Office had four units, including the Comprehensive Planning Unit, Academic Development Unit, Promotion Service Unit, and Entrepreneurship Incubation Center. On August 1st, 2011, due to the establishment of the International Affairs Office within the school, the Research and Development Office was reorganized, and now has three units, including the Comprehensive Planning Unit, Academic and Promotion Service Unit, and Entrepreneurship Incubation Center. On February 1st, 2023, the Research and Development Office was renamed to the Division of Integrated Administration, Center of Industry-Academic Collaboration and Continuing Education, and Entrepreneurship Incubation Center in response to business differentiation.
The Division of Integrated Administration is responsible for various tasks, such as handling subsidy programs from the Ministry of Education and other government agencies, project reviews from the National Science Council, performance evaluations of non-organizational regulations at the school level, academic research rewards, R&D results management, and comprehensive tasks of the Research and Development Office.
The Center of Industry-Academic Collaboration and Continuing Education is responsible for tasks such as commissioned projects from the government and other non-profit organizations, industry-academia cooperation projects, employment operations for promoting education and project personnel, and more.
The Entrepreneurship Incubation Center is responsible for tasks such as cultivating entrepreneurial teams among teachers and students and providing a platform for businesses to establish themselves.
