Time-domain astronomy is an important branch in modern astrophysics, as many celestial objects exhibit variability in time. In the up-coming decade there will be a number of time-domain surveys that will produce huge volume of data available to the astronomical community. In this paper we summarize the participation of National Central University (NCU) in the research of time-domain astronomy. We focus on two projects, the TAOS project and the Pan-STARRS project, at which the NCU has involved heavily in recent years. We also present the follow-up programs for these two main projects - the optical follow-up observations of TAOS variables and the Lulin 2-Meter Telescope and 4-Color Imager aimed to follow-up the Pan-STARRS targets.
