Taiwan Tech and Kyushu Institute of Technology jointly organize an international practical seminar on electrical engineering and computer science to foster international connections for students.

From December 25th to 26th, the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Taiwan Tech hosted the second "International Practical Applications Seminar on Electrical Engineering and Computer Science". The event collaborated with the Kyushu Institute of Technology in Japan for the first time, taking place in Fukuoka, Japan. The conference brought together over 20 experts in electrical engineering and computer science from Taiwan and Japan to explore the future directions and innovative applications of electronic information engineering. This event served as an important platform for domestic and international faculty and students to exchange ideas, contributing to the enhancement of students' international perspectives and competitiveness in the global job market.

The " International Practical Applications Seminar on Electrical Engineering and Computer Science" featured a special keynote address by Professor Nakao Akihiro from the University of Tokyo, who is leading the development of 5G/6G networks in Japan. Professor Nakao discussed the current status of 5G/6G forward-looking technologies and their key applications in Japan. Additionally, this year, the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science held a themed poster competition, with a total of 17 groups of students signed up for the competition. After an internal review, 11 teams comprising a total of 16 students were selected to present their projects in English during the seminar. The topics included AI music therapy chatbots, shooting posture assistance systems, natural disaster detection, and deforestation monitoring systems, among others.

Dean Jiann-Liang Chen of the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science expressed that in an era of rapid development in information and communication technology, the exchange between industry, academia, and research is crucial. He also looks forward to participants fully utilizing this opportunity to share insights, propose innovative solutions, and contribute to driving positive changes in the field of electrical and information engineering.

Taiwan Tech actively promotes a bilingual learning program for college and university students. Through bilingual teaching courses, the goal is to gradually cultivate international talents. The College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science has selected certain courses for bilingual instruction, such as image processing, electrical engineering monographs, introduction to the electrical and information industry, computer networks, and mobile communications. By enhancing language proficiency and combining it with the strong practical skills of technical and vocational students, Taiwan aims to showcase the pragmatic development of technical and vocational talents and demonstrate excellence in academic research and social impact on the global stage.

In addition, the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Taiwan Tech arranged a special visit to the Kyushu Institute of Technology and its microsatellite laboratory. This allowed students to gain in-depth insights into the advancements and future directions of satellite communications in Japan, facilitating interdisciplinary academic exchanges. Participating students noted that in Taiwan, there are limited opportunities to engage in research related to space or satellites. The visit provided them with a unique experience and exposed them to Japan's emphasis on cultivating fundamental capabilities and extending interests. The entire journey was described as fascinating, and the students expressed that they learned a great deal of knowledge. This seminar not only strengthened the collaboration between Taiwan Tech and Kyushu Institute of Technology but also broadened the students' international perspectives.
