National Cheng Kung University was originally established under Japanese government in January 1931 as the Tainan Technical College. After the Japanese handover of Taiwan, the school was renamed to Taiwan Provincial Tainan Junior College of Technology in March 1946, and then to Taiwan Provincial College of Engineering in October the same year.

When the government of the Republic of China moved to Taiwan in 1949, it was one of the three existing colleges in Taiwan. As the number of colleges expanded, it was upgraded to a provincial university in 1956 as Taiwan Provincial Cheng Kung University, named after Koxinga, a Chinese military leader who drove the Dutch East India Company from Taiwan and founded the Kingdom of Tungning. In 1971, the university became a national university and was renamed to National Cheng Kung University.

Former Minister for Education Wu Jin served as the first president of the new National Cheng Kung University.[8]


NCKU has 11 campuses: An-Nan, Cheng-Kung, Cheng-Xin, Ching-Yeh, Dong Ning, Dou-Liou, Kuang-Fu, Kuei-Jen, Li-Hsing, Sheng-Li and Tzu-Chiang.

Sun Green Building Research Center was inaugurated.[9] It is the world's first green educational center as well as Taiwan's first zero carbon building.[10] The 4,800 m2 (52,000 sq ft)-facility cost NT$30 million (US$4.41 million) to construct, far below the original NT$180 million budget.[9] Natural ventilation, limited power usage, reduced window size, and energy efficient lighting all contribute to the building's carbon neutrality.[9]
