Opportunities for exchange have just expanded with the signing of an agreement with Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) in Taiwan.

CYCU has 16,000 students in seven college and schools. The Times Higher Education rankings of universities in Asia lists it among the top 100 schools, based on teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.
