I had the honor to be elected as the fourteenth president of Taipei Tech and inaugurated on February 1, 2018. As the second president who took office as an alumnus, I consider the great responsibility behind this role to be a new challenge. I have more than twenty-year teaching experience and over fifteen-year administrative experience at Taipei Tech. With the goal of building Taipei Tech an internationally renowned university in mind, I will devote myself to carrying and passing down the exceptional legacy of Provincial Taipei Institute of Technology, the predecessor of Taipei Tech and leading Taipei Tech to reach its summit again.
The three core missions of a university are education, research, and social contribution. To implement Taipei Tech to become a leading international university of technology, I will direct all efforts on the following six dimensions:
- Smart green campus
- Diverse and creative learning environment
- Holistic education
- Practice-oriented industry-academia research
- Education and research-oriented international communication
- United and friendly administration teams
The integral part of our university is our students. We will integrate the forces of administration, teaching and research to prepare our students to develop the ability of implementation and communication. We are also committed to get our students equipped with professional knowledge, language and problem-solving ability, and cultivate them with desired attributes necessary for competitiveness to uphold their leading position in today's globalized world.
Founded in 1912, Taipei Tech's long-standing history already exceeds one hundred years. In the past century, our alumni have made outstanding contributions to each stage of Taiwan’s economic development. In response to international talent needs, Taipei Tech will continue advancing vocational education and boosting cooperation among academia, industry, and government. We also find balance between humanitarian and technological innovation as well as theory and practice in our learning environment to reinforce Taipei Tech as a "practical research university".
President, National Taipei University of Technology
