When two public institutions National Dong Hwa University and National Hualien University of Education in Hualien county, Taiwan merged, it brought about a synergy of integration creating one of the most prestigious university in Hualien county, eastern Taiwan with a wide range of disciplines including sciences, engineering, design, environment, law, arts, social sciences, education science, marine science, and music housed within Shoufeng and Meilun campuses, the National Dong Hwa University 國立東華大學, founded in 1994.
The campuses are situated on flat lands with lakes giving off an idyllic vibe to offer students a scenic and soothing place to facilitate an ideal learning environment. A breakthrough occurred when both National Dong Hwa University and National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium (NMMBA) seek to utilize resources in a more efficient manner with the establishment of School of marine science. With the collaboration of expertise of both facilities, in depth marine biology research can be achieved within a shorter time frame which is vital for students at PhD level.
