Driven by their intense passion for science, a group of youngsters once sat in the Nuclear Physics Laboratory at NTU Building No. 2 with their noses deep in research as they tried to unravel the mysteries of the universe. Even at a time plagued by resource scarcity, these researchers did not stop from carrying out cutting-edge nuclear experiments and making history by performing the first nuclear collision experiment in Asia. The story of how these researchers produced stellar results during such trying times is reflected in the exhibitions at the NTU Heritage Hall of Physics.

The NTU Archives has been home to records of the University’s academic developments since 1945, chronicling the endeavors and achievements of our students and faculty members. During its relocation to the Shuiyuan Campus in August 2007, the NTU Archives welcomed a new exhibition room, and has since witnessed efforts to save official documents from a lifetime on the shelf. Here, you can see archives being transformed into historical memorabilia. By integrating professional preservation techniques with digital information technology in a bid to steer away from traditional archiving, the NTU Archives further allows for a multi-faceted understanding of the University’s history.

Agriculture can be understood in many ways – it is, at its core, an industry that drives human living because it brings food to the table. Yet it also plays a role in environmental conservation, and boasts a trove of cultural treasures waiting to be discovered. The NTU Agricultural Exhibition Hall was established to bring attention to domestic agricultural developments. It has since become the best place for students and faculty members to gain deeper insight into the present conditions of the agriculture industry in Taiwan, and to learn about future developments awaiting the local agricultural scene. There is no doubt that this will promote further advancements in the industry and benefit us all.
