To promote ‘Three Locals’, together establish the platform of industry-academia cooperation as well as cultivate local students with participation of local companies, Chienkuo Technology University Acting President Dr. Chiang, Ching-Shan has been actively visiting principals of general high schools and vocational high schools to give an explanation that the central area, including Taichung, Changhua and Nantou is the technological passageway of precise machinery industry in Taiwan which has many technological factories located. Being a main part of technological passageway, CTU builds strong bond with companies. Therefore, Acting President Chiang sincerely invited all general and vocational high schools to support the prospective project for young adults-‘Local Youth, Local Schooling and Local employment’ to create a triple winning situation.
Acting President Dr. Chiang has been on a visit to several principals, subject heads and teachers of high school institutions in the central part of Taiwan since he took over his duty. With his deep recognition of industrial development in the adjacent area, he stated that the central region ranging from Dadu piedmont area of Taichung to Changhua is the noted technological hallway of precision machinery in Taiwan. Furthermore, Changhua Coastal Industrial Park and Changxing Industrial Area has been developed, and Erling Area in Central Taiwan Science Park has begun to attract business investments which received enthusiastic echos. Offshore wind industry in Changhua area has completed recruitment process, and several employment positions will be urgently needed, job opportunities will be bumped up everywhere. On the other hand, Chairman Wu, Lien-Hsing had been served on the educational objective of assisting industry and cultivating business-preferred talents since he built CTU fifty years ago. Now, alumni spread all over small and medium-sized enterprises. In order to conform to the trend of industrial development, CTU has been actively promoting the structural scheme of - “Local Youth, Local Schooling and Local employment”, holding industry-academia cooperation as its main shaft.
According to Acting President Dr. Chiang, to face the forthcoming of ‘Industry 4.0’, ‘Manufacture 4.0’ and ‘AI era’, all CTU faculty adhere to Chairman Wu's admonishment of the idea of ‘Health, Green, Automation and Intellectualization’ and stick to their positions as well as shine CTU's school features. CTU signed industry-academia cooperation MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with the biggest European offshore wind manufactory- Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners to build the first apprenticeship program of maintenance and operation of offshore wind industry in our country. The practice can not only lead CTU's educational quality to be internationalized in the purpose of achieving the school's developmental features- local schooling, connection with local industries and employment right after graduation, but also turn a new page for vocational education in our country.
