Ministry of Education Representative Visits NPUST Exhibit

On May 25th, Director General Yu-Huei Yang of the Department of Technological and Vocational Education (MOE) visited the NPUST campus to tour the Feature Exhibition Center and witness some of the developments the university has been making in research and design. NPUST President Chang-Hsien Tai accompanied Director General Yang during her visit and introduced her to the items on display at the center.

The exhibition included the graduation works of the second class of an advanced learning program offered for working professionals by the Department of Fashion Design and Management. Impressed by the collection, the MOE representative found the works to be both creative and practical in their designs.

Another eye-catching exhibit shared the research of Department of Plant Industry Professor, Dr. Chung-Ruey Yen, who has been invested in the development of new tropical fruit varieties. The director was attracted by two fruits in particular: the baccaurea and wampee; each of which she enjoyed a sample of. The unique taste and texture of the fruits on display were clear evidence of the university’s extraordinary progress in agricultural development. These fruits, which go to export, help spread Taiwan’s reputation abroad and improve the agriculture economy within the country.

In the area of aquaculture, one exhibit showcased the florescent fish developed by Associate Professor Shao-Yang Hu of the Department of Biological Science and Technology along with clown fish and seahorse research carried out by Department of Aquaculture Professor Ying-Nan Chen. The vibrant aquarium presented the university’s outstanding work in the aquatic world and also demonstrated its professional integration of gene engineering and biotechnology. 

Another exhibit with highly practical application was of the remote monitoring devices developed for agricultural facilities by Associate Professor Pomin Lee and Assistant Professor Wei-Chen Chen of the Department of Biomechatronics. Their work, which integrates mechanical design and smart-device application, did an excellent job of hitting the main chord of the university’s agricultural technology oriented research.

Director General Yang affirmed the main trajectories of NPUST’s development; namely, ‘technological agriculture’, ‘eco-industries’’, blue economies’, and ‘platinum society’. She also anticipates seeing even more impressive outcomes in the future as a result of the research currently taking place at the university. The approach taken by NPUST is contributing to the creation of a learning environment that is increasingly advantageous to the students’ acquisition of skills and which will help maximize their job competitiveness when they seek employment in the future.
