T.I.P. and Taiwan’s CYCU partner for 2nd Int’l Workshop on Advanced Technology

The Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) hosted Taiwan’s Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) for the 2nd International Workshop On Advanced Technology last January 15, 2019 at the T.I.P. Quezon City Campus. Supported by the Taiwan Ministry of Education, the joint symposium saw both schools sharing their research and insights regarding various computer, electrical, and electronics engineering topics.

A total of 12 graduate students made up the CYCU delegation, led by CYCU professor Guan-Chyun Hsieh and CYCU Electrical Engineering program chair Cheng-Yuan Chang. T.I.P. meanwhile was represented by its researchers, faculty members, and graduate students from both T.I.P. Quezon City and T.I.P. Manila. The whole-day workshop saw the discussion of six faculty research projects as well as 11 graduate student projects, covering a wide array of subjects including acoustics, electronic power supplies, health technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.

“I hope this is just the start. I really hope that we have more chances to collaborate with T.I.P,” said Chang on the two school’s partnership.

T.I.P. President Dr. Elizabeth Quirino-Lahoz likewise hoped that the workshop will serve as a stepping stone towards a deeper relationship between T.I.P. and CYCU. “Today’s activity is another realization of the academic cooperation between T.I.P. and CYCU. This is a very good opportunity for graduate students and faculty members of both schools to hone their research capabilities. I look forward to more fora and exchanges like this. There’s really so much to learn from other countries, and likewise, we Filipinos also have so much to bring to the table in terms of new knowledge and knowledge applications,” Dr. Quirino-Lahoz remarked.

The partnership between the Technological Institute of the Philippines and Chung Yuan Christian University started in 2009 through a memorandum of understanding between the two schools to jointly promote education and academic exchanges. Specifically, the partnership aims to spur cooperation in joint-research activities; exchange of academic materials and academic publications; exchange of faculty members for research, lectures, and discussions; and exchange of graduate and undergraduate students for study and research.
