Lee, Lung-Sheng
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Symposium on Technology for Sustainability (ISTS) (4th, Taipei, Taiwan, Nov 19-21, 2014)
The mission of national colleges of technology (NCT's) in Japan and the universities of technology (UT's) in Taiwan is to pragmatically prepare quality engineers and technologists. In recent years, the partnership among NCT's and UT's is extended and expanded. This paper introduces the pragmatic and successful partnership between National United University (NUU), Miaoli, Taiwan and Kisarazu National College of Technology (KNCT), Chiba, Japan. The six key success factors are pointed out as follows: (1) Strong support from NUU's and KNCT's stakeholders, (2) Both NUU and KNCT focus on preparing quality engineers and technologists, (3) A shared focus is identified, (4) Good timing is selected for students' exchanges, (5) Multiple activities are arranged for students, and (6) Students are active partnership agents. Based on the past experiences, a checklist for pragmatic exchanges and cooperation to prepare quality engineers and technologists is suggested. It not only examines the current exchanges and cooperation but can also guide the future exchanges and cooperation.
