Feng Chia University (FCU; Chinese: 逢甲大學; pinyin: Féngjiǎ Dàxué) is a private university in Xitun District, Taichung, Taiwan. It was named after Chiu Feng-Chia (丘逢甲 - Qiū Féngjiǎ), one of the leaders of the military resistance against the Japanese invasion of Taiwan in 1895.

History[edit]

In 1961, a university was established in central Taiwan, called Feng Chia College of Engineering and Business, to commemorate Mr. Feng-Chia Chiu (Qiu Fengjia).

In 1961 the college was formally established near the Da-Tun Mountain in northern Taichung City, and two years later moved to the present site Xitun in western Taichung.

In 1980 it gained university status.
