In 2023, the College of Communication at National Chengchi University (NCCU) established the XR Center, dedicated to advancing research, development, and education in interactive and immersive technology. The XR Center oversees the functioning of the “XR Hub NCCU,” facilitates the awarding of degrees and research scholarships focused on digital and interactive technology, and designs collaborative courses that involves both academia and industry.


College of Communication and Meta announced the collaboration with the launch of XR Hub NCCU on May 12th, 2023. The hub is Meta’s first XR-related collaboration project with a university in Taiwan, which is of landmark significance for industry-academia cooperation. With the donation of Meta, XR Hub NCCU is equipped with 20 Meta Quest 2 VR headsets to provide a full range of immersive experiences, including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR). The hub’s launch aims to provide a sophisticated infrastructure for XR technology-related research and course development in the College of Communication at NCCU.


The College of Communication also partners with Meta to establish research scholarships to promote relevant studies in the metaverse, artificial intelligence, and social media. As a result, the College of Communication has become the only institution in Taiwan to offer scholarships sponsored by Meta. The scholarship encompasses two specific categories: degree scholarship and research scholarship.


Furthermore, as part of the collaboration, the College of Communication and Meta will join forces to offer courses on emerging interactive technologies and digital content communication. Leveraging Meta’s expertise, these courses will feature both in-house lecturers and field experts. They will cover diverse topics related to the latest interactive technology trends, applications, regulations, and design.
