On July 8, NVIDIA hosted the annual GPU Technology Workshop in Taiwan and attracted over 600 government officials and industry and academic leaders. During the workshop, NVIDIA announced that the company will collaborate with Taipei Tech to establish the Embedded GPU (graphics processing unit) Joint Lab (NVIDIA-Taipei Tech Joint Lab), and donated a Jetson TK1 development kit to Taipei Tech. In addition to preparing students to become experts in GPU technology, this project is also committed to develop embedded GPU technology in other fields and provide solutions for business partners using this technology, such as applying parallel computing technology to automobiles, robotics, and other large mobile devices. Taipei Tech alumni are successful leaders in Taiwan's IT industry. NVIDIA and Taipei Tech plan to leverage expertise and resources to play a significant role in the robotic supply chain.
Since its establishment in 1912, Taipei Tech (National Taipei University of Technology) has long placed equal emphasis on academic research and hands-on practice. In recent years, with close and solid industry-university collaborations, Taipei Tech has dedicated a considerable amount of effort in nurturing great minds with innovative ideas in the field of applied medical technology. The initiation of the Doctorate of Medicine and of Philosophy (MD-PhD) is a case in point.
Professor Hai-Han Lu of Electro-Optical Engineering and his research team at Taipei Tech (National Taipei University of Technology) spent 2 years developing an ultra-high speed visible light wireless network that is 1,000 times faster than 4G. With this new technology, downloading a full length film will take less than a second.
The average age in Taiwan is rapidly rising. The good news is that Taipei Tech students are making contributions in creating better lives for the elderly. Two groups of students from Taipei Tech won the Red Dot Design Award this year. One is the "Unbent" trolley, which also won the Red Dot "Best of the Best" prize, and the other is the "Easy Button."
The Department of Civil Engineering in Taipei Tech has had a 100-year history since Taipei Tech was established in 1912. In 1997, the Civil Engineering Department of Taipei Tech became the first university department in Taiwan to establish a graduate program in civil and disaster prevention engineering – the Graduate Institute of Civil and Disaster Prevention. “Our greatest turning point”, said Department Chair of Civil Engineering, Professor Shong-Loong Chen (陳水龍), “is when our university became a research university.” In 2012, the Department of Civil Engineering was ranked 117 worldwide by the QS World University Rankings by subject.
"Help Taiwan’s car industry come up with the next step!" said Professor K. David Huang (黃國修), Department of Vehicle Engineering Chair at Taipei Tech. Originally a part of the Mechanical Engineering Department, the Department of Vehicle Engineering was set up as an independent department in 1997. Esteemed faculty members provide interdisciplinary education, with emphasis on hands on experience to prepare students for a career in research or the job market. Following the megatrend of the car industry of producing intelligent, clean, and safe vehicles, the department shifted its focus from repair and maintenance to research on the frontiers of vehicle engineering.
Losing a tooth is nothing to smile about. If it is one of the central or lateral teeth, the tooth leaves a large gaping hole for everyone to see. Now with the most cutting edge research development in dental implants, even if you fall prey to tooth decay, gum disease, or just had a nasty fight, there is nothing preventing you from smiling in front of the camera for your next Facebook profile picture.
The greatest gift that anyone can have is imagination. With that imagination, one can dream up all sorts of different things. However, being able to possess a model of one’s design isn’t as easy as it sounds. With all the materials available in the world, constructing a prototype is a daunting and tedious task, which can sometimes lead to unsatisfactory results. In the past three decades, an easier and more efficient way has been discovered: 3D printing. Very soon, if one can come up with a design, one can produce a model of it.
With the support of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taipei Tech is sanctioned to import 200 electric motorcars—the two-seater Tazzari Zero from Italy—and will offer rental services starting in June. The rental services not only provide an exciting opportunity for citizens to experience green technology on wheels, it also allows Taipei Tech to collect data that will be used in future government green policy.
As the numbers on the electronic tag lit up, there was a hush of disbelief and then a wave of excitement broke out among the students in the laboratory located at the highest floor of the Molecular Science and Engineering Building in Taipei Tech. The team of students in the solar cell education program had just successfully powered an electronic tag using solar cell technology. They did it with indoor light, however, not sunlight.
