The past two months have marked a special time in CECI’s cooperation with National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) with not one, but two separate group visits arranged for the students by CECI’s Chairman Dr. Shih Yi-Fang and NTUST’s Civil and Construction Engineering Department faculty members, particularly Professor Yang I-Tung and Associate Professor Hsieh Yo-Ming.
The visits have allowed local and international students to get a glimpse of the professional life in Taiwan’s leading engineering consultant, as well as personally experience how new technologies – particularly Building Information Modelling (BIM), Virtual Reality (VR), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), remote sensing using satellite technologies and others – are applied in practice in engineering projects.
The first group consisted of about 40 students and faculty members and visited CECI in December 2020, while the second one was much larger – over 80 students and faculty members – visited CECI the following month. During both visits, the students were given a comprehensive overview of CECI’s operations and achievements, with special welcome remarks made by Chairman Dr. Shih Yi-Fang and President Dr. Lee Shun-Min – both NTUST’s alumni. The students had also an opportunity to talk with CECI’s senior engineers, who were happy to share their experience, provide insights and guidance to let the young people fully realize their future potential as engineers.
NTUST visits underscore CECI’s strong commitment to community engagement and talent cultivation, both locally and internationally, as many of those participating in the visits are international students coming from all corners of the world to study at NTUST. “The visits are a wonderful opportunity not only to share knowledge and experience”, said Dr. Shih Yi-Fang, “but also to contribute to the future international cooperation in the engineering field”.
