TIGP-Molecular Science and Technology Program (MST)

Important description
About TIGP-Molecular Science and Technology Program (MST)

The purpose of this program is to deepen the pool of available researchers in contemporary multidisciplinary fields important to the future economic and social development of Taiwan. The program has enhanced both innovation and academic research standards in all related fields.

The MST program encourages students? independent research capabilities by promoting problem-solving skills and individual self-confidence through building self-reliance. In this program, faculty members take turns mentoring first-year students until they formally join a research group and undertake their thesis study. Students should begin their theses programs within the first two semesters after admission into the graduate program. Students are asked to complete a series of requisite courses before embarking on their research. A team-teaching system forms the core of the MST program, whereby faculty members teach according to their areas of expertise. Students are expected to undertake both required and elective courses. All courses are delivered in English.

Fellowship and Stipend

TIGP provides fellowship support of NT$34,000 (about over US$1000) per month for all graduate students during the first year of their enrollment. The support will be extended for another two years upon evidence of satisfactory progress towards the degree. In subsequent years, the financial support will be provided by the student?s thesis advisor. The amount of the support will be at the discretion of the advisor.
