1. To meet the requirements of our country's economic development:
Facing the competing high-technology development of advanced countries, the traditional manufacturers in our country are under great pressure. Our industries will lose their international markets if we continue to engage in piracy and labor intensified industry. To survive in the international market, we must develop industries that technologically intensive, will be of, high additional value, and possess orientations toward design. The aims of our center are to cut the barriers between academic conceptual and the industrial practicalities, to nurture excellent and suitable design talents for the industry, to help in successful industry transformation, to upgrade the industry and, in long terms, to boost our country's economic development.
2. To integrate the resources and technologies of all departments to develop technical research:
The developing of design technology to upgrade the basis of design standards. This college includes expertise in a variety of fields from the College of Design, to the College of Engineering, as well as to the College of Management. This center combines these expertises to develop and research design techniques. It also provides their results to industry to help industry upgrade itself and to increase their products' additional value by offering technological assistance or counseling.
3. To upgrade the regional standards of cultural design:
In the middle and southern part of Taiwan, the design atmosphere and design related education facilities are severely lacking. In the Yunlin and Chiayi areas where the National Yunlin University of Science and Technology is located, the resources relating to design culture are particularly lacking. This center will supplement this shortage. We can increase the resources in Yunlin and Chiayi's design services and also upgrade the design level of the whole area. In addition, we can extend our resources to the whole island to increase our national design culture, to push the industry towards design-oriented methods, to upgrade our industry, to speed up our nation's image, and to develop our industry.
