The development background of the department

In the 1960s and 1970s when Taiwan's industry began to take off, when it comes to landscape architecture, it is still a very unfamiliar term to most people. However, with the increase of income, more and more people began to care about their quality of life, so the landscape architecture profession has gradually attracted the attention of the public. The Department of Landscape Architecture of our school was established in 1981 under such an atmosphere. It aims to cultivate students with both humanistic and ecological care, as well as substantive planning and design capabilities, so as to improve the environment and ecology and create high-quality landscapes. , in order to meet the requirements of the Chinese people in terms of quality of life and the needs of the development of the leisure industry.

The first department chair of this department is a well-known scholar in China—Ms. Ma Yigong, a former supervisory committee member. The lack of resources in the initial stage is really a blue thread! However, under the leadership of the previous department chairs and the redoubled efforts and enthusiasm of the teachers, the graduates of the past years have now taken the lead in the landscape industry and academia. Every year, the Gold Award sponsored by the Public Works Committee of the Executive Yuan is often seen in us. The outstanding works of alumni have won awards, and the outstanding performance of alumni in various fields is the driving force behind our continuous improvement!
