Chihlee University of Technology (CLUT; Chinese: 致理科技大學), is a privately owned, for-profit institution of higher learning in northern Taiwan. The main campus is in Banqiao District, New Taipei City. The campus lies within walking distance of the Xinpu station of the Taipei's metro rail line.
The Chihlee Institute (pronounced Jrr-Lee) serves over 10,000 full-time students. The Chinese word in the school's name describes a personal quality valued by ancient scholars. The word may be rendered in English as dedication.
The school was founded in 1965 in Banqiao as the Chihlee College of Business, a trade school offering associate's degrees in fields related to commerce. The CLCB comprised four departments: International Trade, Business Administration, Accounting and Statistics, and Banking and Insurance. A Department of Secretarial Science was added three years later. The school was also known in English as the Chihlee Institute of Commerce.
In 2000 the school was upgraded by Taiwan's Ministry of Education to a full baccalaureate degree-granting institution. The curriculum and range of majors expanded and the school was renamed Chihlee Institute of Technology.
In 2015 the school was officially upgraded by Taiwan's Ministry of Education to a university.
Today the Chihlee Institute offers two- and four-year programs leading to the bachelor's degree. The school continues to offer five-year associate degree programs; these programs combine the upper levels of high school with the lower levels of college instruction.
