Introduction

 
The Department of Crafts and Design was originally the Department of Industrial Art of the National Taiwan Academy of Arts. However the name and concept of the department has continually changed to keep pace with the development of industry and the increasing need for design talent. Over the years, our department has been the Product Section and Decoration Section, the Crafts and Design Section, the Applied Arts Section, and the Crafts Section and Design Section. In 2001, when our school was reorganized from a college into a university, our department became a member of the College of Design along with the Department of Visual Communication Design and the Department of Multimedia and Animation Arts.
