More than 3 million Euros were invested into an educational demo factory with sophisticated machinery and equipment that was provided by local and international companies.
Faculty from the School of Management and several other Taiwan Tech colleges engage in cross-disciplinary teaching and research projects to prepare our students for careers in smart manufacturing. The centre also offers domestic industries the facilities and resources that are necessary to develop technologies and cultivate technological talent. By offering industrial training courses in industry-university collaborative projects, the centre helps to alleviate the shortage of Industry 4.0 manpower and to enhance the strategic competitiveness of those enterprises.
