History of FEU
Far East University, formerly Far East Junior College of Technology, was established in 1968. For almost forty years, it has overcome all possible difficulties and has developed firmly and steadily. In August, 1999, before the dawn of the new millennium, the school was promoted and officially renamed Far East College as Mr. Nai-Chang Wang was the President. To comply with the promotion and to help students develop wholesome character the former humanities and social science courses have been largely improved.

Then in August, 2006, the school was promoted and renamed Far East University.
