Date: 2024/06/26

On June 25, CECI Engineering Consultants, Inc., Taiwan, and Cheng Shiu University (CSU) signed a joint Industry-Academia Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen collaboration in areas such as student internships, organization of teaching and practical experience exchange events, and information sharing. The signing ceremony was attended by CECI Chairman Dr. Shih Yi-Fang, Senior Consultant to the Chairman Mr. Lee Jeng-Gun, CECI President Mr. Liaw Shyne-Ruey, Vice Presidents Mr. Huang Ping-Hsun, Dr. Andrew Wang, Mr. Wu Wen-Lung, and other high-ranking officers. On CSU’s side, they were warmly received by the institution’s President Dr. Kung Jui-Chang and key members of the university’s leadership team.

CECI Chairman Dr. Shih Yi-fang remarked that the MOU represents a significant milestone in the cooperation between the two organizations. He praised CSU for being selected for the 15th time as Taiwan’s outstanding institution in the field of industry-academic cooperation by the Chinese Institute of Engineers. Dr. Shih emphasized CSU’s exemplary efforts in aligning its talent cultivation practices with industry needs, producing specialists who not only possess highly competitive workplace skills but also exhibit a strong enthusiasm for professional development.

CSU President Dr. Kung acknowledged the numerous contributions CECI has made to Taiwan’s infrastructure over the past decades, facilitating the country’s rapid economic development and currently playing a crucial role in its pivot towards sustainability. He highlighted CSU’s continuous and long-standing focus on engineering and architecture-related fields, which have produced a significant number of outstanding engineers over its 59-year history. “We hope that our cooperation will better prepare students for the future workplace and enrich our teaching practices,” noted Dr. Kung.

CECI is proud to have numerous CSU alumni among its ranks, many of whom hold important positions within the company. Following the signing of the MOU, both parties engaged in discussions on new construction methods and engineering techniques, such as the latest optical measurement technology for tunnel safety mobile inspection systems.

The government of Taiwan places great importance on the infrastructure development of the island’s southern region, as demonstrated by large-scale projects like the National Highway No. 7, the Kaohsiung-Pingtung Expressway, the Kaohsiung MRT Yellow Line, the MRT Hsiaogang-Linyuan Line, and others. CECI has been actively participating in these projects and is keen to integrate CSU talent into this crucial work.
