The center will seek government (such as the Ministry of Education for the new Southbound policy), legal and corporate funds and resources with the following plan.

  • 1. Establish and organize resources:
  • We will leverage the contacts and venues of the National Taiwan University Alumni or overseas divisions in Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand to actively participate in international organizations in Southeast Asia and join forces with the top engineering colleges in Asia Pacific for advanced educational exchanges and communications, i.e. Asia-Oceania Top University League on Engineering, AOTULE), Bandung Institute of Technology (Indonesia), Indian Institute of Technology Madras (India), University of Malaya (Malaysia), Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), and Hanoi University of Science and Technology (Vietnam) and so on. The related internet links and websites are listed as follows:
    1. Asia-Oceania Top University League on Engineering, AOTULE
    2. The Association of Southeast Asian Institute of Higher Learning, ASAIHL
    3. Presidents‘ Forum of Southeast and South Asia and Taiwan Universities (abbr. SATU Presidents’ Forum)
  • 2. Outstanding international student recruitment strategies:
  • (1) Assist the International School of Life Sciences to recruit excellent students from high schools or universities in Southeast Asia to enroll in our school, and offer special winter camps or summer internships. We plan to leverage the local NTU alumni association and overseas students from Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and other countries to recruit outstanding high school students to enroll at our university.
    (2) Strategies for recruiting undergraduate students to enroll in our graduate institute include:
    1. Offer attractive programs (including scholarships, research projects with specific features or joint career development programs with Taiwan businesses.): We will design suitable programs for key cooperative schools. The department will also establish a connection between the two departments or schools to assist students with study applications as well as appoint suitable candidates for guidance in scholarship program for students and the recruitment of degree seeking students. Also, we can leverage the resources of the NTU alumni association and Taiwan business organizations to assist their career development after graduation.
    2. Assist the departments and schools to collaborate with the key institutes on research projects such as joint laboratory experiment projects, co-mentoring programs for graduate student projects, joint double degree programs to foster graduate cooperation programs, Taiwan business joint development programs for graduate students, joint international meetings and workshops, and so on; for example, the joint graduate students program from the collaborations between the Department of Civil Engineering and Vietnam Civil Engineering university now has more than 80 master students graduated with the support of business enterprises.
    3. Our legal entities or business joint programs for cultivating outstanding international students, i.e. the joint programs for cultivating outstanding international students with the Industrial Technology Research Institute.
    4. Attract teachers and their teams from the key schools in Southeast Asia to pursue research programs or training of our school through internship opportunities. We can have long term joint research projects and co-mentoring of graduate cooperation programs for joint publication and cooperation between industry and academia, setting up joint laboratories, and conducting joint international seminars. The NTU teams and students are also encouraged to visit Southeast Asia for similar exchange programs at the same time. We will facilitate the international leagues and the joint dual-degree for different majors to encourage more activities on research communications. Meanwhile, we will encourage NTU students to travel to Southeast Asia for joint double-degree programs to cultivate graduate students through, visiting research, internships in Taiwanese companies, entrepreneurship, winter/ summer camps or volunteer services; for example, NTU and the College of Engineering and University of Science and Technology of Hanoi in Vietnam currently have more than 20 teachers or students in the program for exchange activities or internships.
  • 3. Facilitate the long term academic exchange and cooperation:
  • (1) Taiwan business joint development programs for graduate students: Assist in the establishment of joint degree-seeking students programs with Taiwan businesses by connecting high schools, Taiwanese companies in Southeast Asia and our school, funded by Taiwan businesses there. Taking graduate students for instance, the first year of program courses will be designed by the high schools in Southeast Asia and NTU, then the students will attend the classes in NTU in the second year and complete their internships in those companies later on.
    (2) Form special class or summer school for the senior managers; expand the existing Southeast Asian programs to become special classes or summer school for senior managers. For example, expanding the Southeast Asian talent cultivation programs to become the summer schools through credits, 2016 International Consortium on Geo-disaster Reduction etc.
    (3) Teachers and their teaching teams from the key institutes in Southeast Asia to study or join in the training programs here through internships
    1. Form the joint research and development center: Facilitate the participation in the international alliances to promote communication among students.
    2. NTU university students are encouraged to visit Southeast Asia for activities such as: (1) Taiwan business joint development programs for graduate students and visiting research; (2) internships in Taiwanese companies: i.e. short or middle term internships/ exchange projects in Southeast Asia with support from departments, our local companies or Taiwan businesses in Southeast Asia; (3) entrepreneurs: i.e. short or middle term internships/ exchange projects in Southeast Asia with support from departments, our local companies or Taiwan businesses in Southeast Asia; (4) winter/ summer camps: winter/ summer camps with support from departments and the Office of International Affairs, Southeast Asian schools and international organizations; (5) volunteer services: volunteer programs run by the Office of Student Affairs and international organizations in Southeast Asia.
