In order to train students to develop the ability of visual communication design and independent creativity, our department's strategy is to use visual message design in accordance with the development of culture and creativity to emphasize both theory and practice. With three curriculum modes, which include: (1) Graphic design (visual imaging and advertising design [2D]); (2) Three-dimensional design (package and display design [3D]); and (3) Digital multimedia design (web age and 3D image design [4D]), we look forward to training students into complete design experts. Our students' work over the years has often earned both national and international awards, including fourteen pieces which were selected in the Young Designers' Exhibition of 2008. Both of our visual communication design department and that of She-Te University were simultaneously awarded the top prize. The 26TH Berlin International Short Film Festival of competition has accepted our students’ animation “Aholic”, the only creation from Taiwan to win an honor in 2010. Posters have been selected for the 22nd International Poster Biennale in Warsaw, Poland in 2010, and the 9th International Poster Triennial in Toyama, Japan in 2009. A 3-D model “Christmas Feast in Taichung” won a gold medal in the design competition for eco-friendly Christmas trees in the Taichung business area from the Taichung government in 2010.
