About Us

Welcome to the Department of Agronomy in National Taiwan University!

The antecedent of this department was the Crop Science Lecture and the Plant Breeding Lecture of Taihoku (Taipei) Imperial University, founded by Japanese in 1928. Following the retrocession of Taiwan to Republic of China in 1946, these two Lectures were reorganized and renamed as the Department of Agronomy at National Taiwan University. This Department was one of the oldest departments in the College of Agriculture and in the University. Since then, the Department of Agronomy has solved problems, broken new ground and ignited inspiration for local agriculture. The Biometry Lab and the Seed Technology Lab were established within the Department in 1946 and 1957, respectively. From that time on, the Department has gradually expanded and M.S. and Ph.D. programs were formally started in 1956 and 1967, respectively.

The goal of this Department is to offer students broad knowledge based on which a solid career in Crop Science can be built. The undergraduate program offers students career possibilities in various fields of Crop Science. The graduate program, leading to the degrees of master of science (M.S.) or doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.), aims to provide training for students who plan to build a career in teaching and/or research.

With an aim to promote basic and applied researches in crop science, effort has been focused on recruiting faculty members with strong background in modern agriculture, as well as bioscience. Faculty members offer courses and conduct research according to one of the three divisions they belong to: “Genetics and Molecular Breeding”, “Crop Physiology”, and “Biometry”. Faculty members keep enriching their teaching with the input of up-to-date knowledge and constantly bring in new ideas in their research to solve diverse problems in agriculture, supported by a regular improvement of common facilities. The Ministry of Science and Technology and the Council of Agriculture are the main funding agencies supporting faculty members’ research projects.
