The service industry is the major trend of economic development in the 21st century. Our university considering international and societal development establishes the following principles:
One Aim ---striving for a first class university
Two Roads---developing service industry; researching and developing high technologies.
Therefore, Minghsin University of Science and Technology established the first College of Service Industry in the nation in 2001 by including four departments and one institute: Department of Hotel Management, Department of Child Development and Education, Department of Leisure Management, Department of Senior Citizen Service Management and Institute of Service Industries and Management. This college has provided trainings to abundant high quality workers in the region of Tao-Yan, Hsin-Chu and Miao-Li despite of limited resources, whereas special features of each department are valued through planned programs to provide essential professional knowledge and management skills for those who are able to contribute to the service industry. Furthermore, in order to fully utilize the resources in the college, this college encourages integrated research across departments and establishes the “Center for Teacher Education” and “Senior Daycare Center” to connect the regional-based specialties and to participate in local economic growth.
