Doctoral Program in the College of Planning & Design
The Institute of Creative Industry Design at National Cheng Kung University is a part of the College of Planning and Design. ICID has its roots in Industrial Design but has evolved into a combination of industrial planning and enterprise innovations, with a focus on design applications and strategy management in business terms. ICID will economize and industrialize creative productions via modern technology design management (services and policies) and cultural development products.
In order to develop creative industry and cultivate vast research talent, ICID recruits students from multiple backgrounds and specializations of study. There are three supervisor groups to meet students' needs. The groups are Group A (Brand & Marketing Planning), Group B (Media & Interaction Design), and Group C (Industry & Service Innovation). All classes in the institute are lectured in English in order to present Taiwan's special culture to the world and it is our hope that these students with diverse backgrounds will bring new energy into Taiwan's creative cultural industry.
