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.
The Taipei Tech research and development team, led by Vice President Prof. Sea-Fue Wang, announced a new kind of green and sustainable fuel cell. Following closely behind the US, Australia and Japan, Taipei Tech has also successfully developed a much more efficient and green fuel cell for household use.
Environmental protection is one of the major issues confronting the world today. After using up much of earth's natural resources and wreaking much damage on the environment, humans are seeing the impacts of our actions and are doing something about it. Taipei Tech's Institute of Environmental Engineering and Management (IEEM) is training engineers and environmental management specialists to help solve the ever increasing number of environmental problems, meet the needs of our industries, while increasing our living standards and Taiwan's international competitiveness. Originally a part of the Department of Civil Engineering, the IEEM branched out and was established as an independent institute in 2000. To assist our government in carrying out its environmental policies, the institute was formally named as the Institute of Environmental Engineering and Management in 2006 and established its PhD program in 2012.
Tzu-Chen Hung was one of the first scholars in Taiwan to research on waste heat recovery. Years ago when the issue of energy shortage and energy crisis still wasn’t widely known to most people, professor Hung had already started addressing it.
2012 marked the 30th anniversary of the discovery of Quasicrystals. Taipei Tech celebrated it by holding the International Quasicrystals Conference and invited scholars from all over the world, including the 2011 Nobel Laureate Prof. Dan Shechtman, the father of the Quasicrystals field.
National Taipei University of Technology (Taipei Tech) is the number one university of “Paradigm Technological Universities,” which was recently announced by the Ministry of Education, R.O.C. on March 21, 2012.
A research team led by Prof. Yi-Jun Jen of the Department of Electro-optical Engineering published their study in Nature Communications (Volume: 2, 21 June 2011). The paper also raised the institution ranking of Taipei Tech to corrected count 0.86 /article 1. The rankings are based on the number of papers that were published as Articles, Letters and Brief Communications, or Reviews from institutions in Taiwan that were published within the last 12 months in Nature and Nature monthly research journals.
