This university is the home to over 11,211 students, who study in 6 different disciplines offered by the six different colleges from the university. These colleges are:

  • College of Engineering,
  • College of Design and Arts,
  • College of Management,
  • College of Foreign Languages and
  • College of Biotechnology and Bio-resources.
  • College of Tourism and Hospitality.

Furthermore, College of Nursing and Health Science will be fully established in 2014. DYU has been awarded with Teaching Excellence Project from Taiwan Ministry of Education in the last few years indicating overall high teaching quality, excellent management and the great potential of DYU.

Although the university focuses heavily on academics, being one of the prestigious private universities in Taiwan, Dayeh university also focuses on sporting activities. Dayeh has been the host to many important sporting events which includes: 29th University and College Games, the 1st University and College College Club Expo, University President Conference, Hundred Industry Partnership-Strategy Alliances Fair, Ceremony for Industry-Academic Partnership Establishment, just to name a few.
In addition, DYU has also been awarded with Teaching Excellence Project from Ministry of Education in consecutive years, which indicates the high teaching standard overall,
excellent management and the great potential of DYU.

DYU performs well in academic research perspective in recent years. According to the statistics of frequency on ESI papers in Taiwan, papers from the College of Engineering are
quoted as many times as top 1% of the world. WOS statistics on papers also indicate the great research potential in the areas of Mechanics, Agriculture, Materials, Biology and
Immunology at DYU. The ranking of DYU has been improved to one of the world top 6% universities according to Webometrics from Span in January 2011. Students at DYU also
exhibit excellent performance in award receiving from major international competitions including winners of German RedDot Design Competition, Nurnberg International
Exhibition of Inventions in Germany, Moscow Achimedes International Exhibition of Inventions in Russia, International Exhibition of Inventions in Italy, International Competition
of Micro Institutions in Japan, and Seoul Female Film Festival in Korea. The research and professional expertise at DYU have, therefore, been well recognized worldwide through
these excellent performances.

In addition to providing reinforced fundamental instructions on general education and professional sciences, DYU cultivates its students with four distinctive features of being
willing to learn, to do, to give and to take responsibility through learning from apprenticeship, DYU 4 Willing Colleges, club activities and service-learning courses. In addition,
to reinforce students’ professional competence and competitiveness in job search, DYU specially set up dural-instructor courses that combine professionals in the field and DYU
