Tainan University of Technology is founded on the principles of humanity and art, with a focus on home economics, and excels in the fields of hospitality and leisure. In response to the flourishing trend of the world tourism industry and the government's tourism development policies, the university established a four-year undergraduate program in 2008, a two-year undergraduate program in 2009, and a high school vocational program in 2011. As one of the few hotel management professional departments in the central, southern areas, the department provides the tourism industry with professional human resources and lays the foundation for the emerging creativity of the tourism industry. Graduates are awarded a bachelor's degree in management, and the department was renamed as the Department of Hotel Management in 2014.
During their studies, students in this department not only take courses in the hospitality industry and develop excellent service attitudes and professional skills, but also receive long-term exposure to the artistic and cultural atmosphere of the campus and the traditional school spirit, cultivating distinctive cultural qualities that set them apart from students at other universities. These qualities are precisely what hotel staff need to possess. The department places particular emphasis on cultivating students' learning attitudes and English communication skills. By changing their appearance, inner qualities, and personality, the department aims to cultivate industry leaders with a passion for service and professional skills, and provide a bridge to the workplace for students, ultimately achieving the goal of graduating and finding employment.
The Department of Hotel Management aims to cultivate students' "professional skills in the workplace," "self-learning abilities," "communication and learning abilities," and "practical skills."
