Let's GO Tech to Pursue Sustainability and Happiness
Lee, Lung-Sheng
Online Submission, Paper presented at Kisarazu National College of Technology (Kisarazu Kosen) (Japan, Apr 26, 2012)
Technology refers to making or doing things to extend human capability to meet our needs or wants. Both technology and engineering are closely related. The majority of faculty and students in both Kisarazu National College of Technology (Kisarazu Kosen or KNCT) and National United University (NUU) are in the field of engineering. Based upon a literature review and this author's understandings, this paper first introduces the STEM education promoted in the United States and argues the vital role of Technology and Engineering (T&E), then introduces the GO Tech promoted at NUU. GO Tech stands for both "Green Technology" and "Orange Technology." This author mainly argues that the students in both Japan and Taiwan need STEM education and should value the "T and E" in STEM, and states that "GO Tech" means "We should cherish the opportunity to learn 'T and E' and value both green and orange technologies." This author also wishes that more cooperation between Kisarazu Kosen and NUU is promoted to obtain positive synergies to help students' learning and pursue human sustainability and happiness.
