NCKU is a world-renowned university with extensive research resources supported by the College of Engineering, the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, the College of Medicine, and the Medical Center. The integrated environment provides a center for cultivating specialists of biomedical engineering in southern Taiwan. The establishment of the Medical Device Innovation Center, one of the four research centers on campus funded by the Taiwan Ministry of Education, was approved in 2011. Medical devices have become one of the featured developments  at NCKU.

The Institute of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) was founded in 1988. The BME aims to develop multidisciplinary programs that integrate biomechanics, medical electronics, biomedical materials, bioinformatics, and rehabilitation technology. In 2011, a major milestone was achieved with the establishment of the undergraduate program. The expansion enables the BME to offer a more comprehensive curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels for students.
