Student Activities

School of Food and Biological Engineering holds the idea of “Strict Administration and Great Kindness Based on the Demands of Students”. Extracurricular activities, such as Undergraduate Innovation and Business Startup Training, “Coconut Cup Innovative Manipulation”, Participations in Laboratorial Research etc., are carried out all year long. The qualities of graduated students keep increasing with 95% employment ratio and 25% graduate entrance exam participation ratio. Daring to be the first and being innovative and creative, our students have received high reputation from society.

To further promote the education quality, “Administration Policies of Teachers for Student Employment Instruction” and “Administration Instructions for Undergraduate Advisor” have been proposed and put into practice since 2014.
