Establishing Educational Institutes That Facilitate Diverse and Adaptive Learning

Asia Eastern University of Science and Technology / Yu Chang Technical and Commercial Vocational Senior High School / Yuan Ze University


FENC values diverse and adaptive learning, encouraging students to apply what they have learned to achieve self-fulfillment. Over the years, the Company has established the Oriental Institute of Technology, Yu Chang Technical and Commercial Vocational Senior High School and Yuan Ze University, providing students with options in terms of the right educational environment based on career development to bridge the gap between what students learn at schools and the skills required at the workplace. Since 2012, the affiliates of FEG expanded the practical training program for students. As of today, 979 students have participated in the industry-academia internship program and entered the companies after graduation. Such programs have created a win-win for students, corporations and society. (Please refer to Recruitment and Retention.)

Asia Eastern University of Science and Technology, formerly known as Oriental Institute of Technology, delivered a remarkable performance at Seoul International Invention Fair, winning four gold, two silver and eight bronze awards as well as two special prizes, one from Saudi Arabia and one from Malaysia. Among the winning projects, a gold award and special prize from Saudi Arabia were presented to “Biosensing Drug Storage Device” for incorporating a humanized design to send medication reminders to patients and stabilize patient conditions. “Rehabilitation Device and Methodology for Cognitive Degeneration” won the silver award and special prize from Malaysia for the design of a multi-player game that encourages social interaction and increases a sense of well-being among the elderly. The students and faculty of Asia Eastern University of Science and Technology focus on the research of advanced studies such as cloud computing, big data and AI. Their collaboration have sparked inventions that embody their incredible research and innovative abilities.
 

New Program for New Age, Cultivating Resilient Talents at Asia Eastern University of Science and Technology

 

The world is changing at an incredible pace, and Yu Chang Vocational High School (YCVS) has positioned itself as an incubator of talents with critical skills that will drive global development. The school focuses on adaptive development; cross-industry learning; digital technology; initiative and innovation; humanistic aesthetics; international specialization, and aims to cultivate professional and technical talents with the capabilities to implement, compete and influence while meeting future challenges with sustainable mindsets and global mobility. In 2024, YCVS established the Department of Distribution Management, hoping to integrate the manpower and resources with the retail and distribution establishments under Far Eastern Group. The aim is to promote the industry-academia program and help students gain insight and real-world experience in the distribution industry through school education, special projects, career visits and internships. YCVS invites industry experts to share their field experience to strengthen technical capabilities for the young talents, helping them hone skills essential for employability and industry development for them to flourish into the pillars of corporations.
 

Multi-Faceted Competitiveness for Students at Yu Chang Vocational High School

 

To incubate global talents, Far Eastern Group and Yuan Ze University (YZU) established the Industrial Academy and International Academy in 2022. The training programs and special projects at Industrial Academy are tailored to provide corporate solutions. With both corporate and academic members on the faculty team, the program reduces the skills gap, matching the right employer with the right student, and the right talent with the right corporation.
 

Corporate Academy by YZU and FENC

 

FENC collaborated with YZU on the university social responsibility (USR) program. Staff from the R&D unit gave presentations on the development of FENC’s recycling technology and innovative low-carbon products. The students learned about the actual products in the product showroom, which deepened their impressions of the products and design concept. A total of 266 students participated in the program.

YZU has been providing significant support to corporations to address the challenges posed by carbon emissions. The post-baccalaureate program for Carbon Zero Sustainable Development, a new degree program from the university, provides one-on-one coaching on subjects such as the carbon exchange and carbon neutrality. The College of Management and Office of Research and Department also co-founded the Low Carbon and Smart Counseling Team to help corporations conduct GHG inventory. The team incorporates smart diagnosis to provide recommendations in terms of strategizing for carbon reduction. In September 2023, the program obtained certification from the Industrial Development Bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs as a counseling team, which led to industry-academia partnerships commissioned by multiple corporations.

Shining International Spotlight Onto Taiwan With International Competitions

Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament


To build a solid foundation in science education among young students, Y. Z. Hsu Science and Technology Memorial Foundation started the Y. Z. Hsu Competition-Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament in 2009 with the Department of Physics, National Taiwan Normal University. The competition is open to high school student teams around the nation. Students who perform well during the competition will be recruited to the national team, which will train with professors from National Taiwan Normal University and compete in the International Young Physicists’ Tournament (IYPT).

The twelve questions for contestants of the Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament are selected from the 17 questions published by IYPT. The tournament attracts students from top high schools each year. They conduct experiments or simulations based on each question; report and debate over their findings with other contestants during the tournament. The 15th Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament (TYPT) was held in 2023. More than 50 schools have participated over the years, including Taipei Municipal Chien Kuo High School, Taipei First Girls High School and Affiliated Senior High School of National Taiwan Normal University. A total of 2,112 students have competed in the tournament and awarded NT$14.67 million in prizes. Since 2010, Y. Z. Hsu Science and Technology Memorial Foundation has been sponsoring food, accommodation and transportation for the IYPT national team members. The students were exceptional, winning 1 gold, 6 silver and 6 bronze medals.

The influence of the Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament (TYPT) is far-reaching. The tournament prompted the establishment of physicist’s clubs in Taipei Municipal Jianguo High School and Kaohsiung Municipal Kaohsiung Senior High School. The questions given during the tournament are also taught during the physics courses at the National Taiwan Normal University, Taipei American School, National Changhua Girl’s Senior High School and Mingdao High School. Starting in 2014, the National Taiwan Normal University has been offering speculative physics, which discusses questions from the International Young Physicists' Tournament (IYPT) during a current year. The instructors guide students to navigate through the thought process of inference, speculation and research. Many science programs in Taiwan also started referencing the physics materials referenced during IYPT, such as the national competition for innovative science teaching aids; physics tournaments for high schools and colleges; national competitions for high school physics inquiry and practice; national and regional science fairs.

The K-12 Education Administration of Ministry of Education recognizes that TYPT as well as the International Young Physicists’ Tournament (IYPT) national team training and competition plan improves science competency among high school students, expands their world view and boost their competitiveness. Since 2023, the K-12 Education Administration has assumed the role of project advisor, encouraging the students and faculty members winning IYPT medals with certificates of recognition. The official recognition from K-12 Education Administration is beneficial in terms of cultivating talents in scientific research for the long term. It also attracts more top-performing students to compete, accumulating the momentum for scientific and technological innovation for the society.
