Research and Development/研究發展

Center for Advanced Information Systems and Electronics Research

Information Systems and Electronic technology are key areas for high-tech development in the 21st century. National Central University, National Chiao Tung University, Tsinghua University and National Yangming University are bringing together research and development in the field of energy, with many science and engineering professors of differing backgrounds cooperating in careful evaluation and discussions. The four schools combined to form the Center for Advanced Information Systems and Electronics Research (CAISER), which first began formal operation in 2004. The four schools will integrate their research manpower and equipment resources and actively promote interdisciplinary cooperation to take their academic research and R&D capabilities to an international level.



The center will be set up central laboratory and regional laboratories, research for the following four key topics:

(1) Photovoltaic Systems
(2) System-on-Chip Design Technology
(3) Networking and Communications
(4) Knowledge Engineering and Digital Content

In addition, in order to expand the vision and scope in their research, the center works with outstanding foreign universities and academic research institutions to promote international academic research projects, planning and developing key areas of research and talent; establishing teaching courses and training programs; implementing transfers of technology; and enhancing industrial competitiveness as part of a high-tech industry-university cooperation plan. This approach has led to great advances in theory and technology as well as education and research.

2. Research Project Contents
Organize interdisciplinary research teams and set key topics for research projects in key areas:
This program has instituted a central laboratory and several regional laboratories including a central laboratory at National Chiao Tung University, and regional laboratories at National Central University, National Tsinghua University and National Yangming University.

3. Promotion of international academic cooperation programs to expand vision and scope
The program actively seeks opportunities for cooperation with internationally renowned academic institutions, including research projects, exchanges of scholars and students, and sharing of information and resources.

4. UST works with a number of respected academic and research institutions in Taiwan including Academia Sinica, the Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (SRRC), the National Nano Device Laboratory (NDL), the National Center for Theoretical Sciences (CTS), the National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC), and the Precision Instrument Development Center (PIDC).

5. Areas of cooperation include division of labor among domestic academic units in utilizing manpower and equipment resources, basic research, applied research and technology development.

6. The plan also entails teaching courses and training programs as part of basic education. This integration of the four universities; teaching resources covers more than 300 related fields and includes both cutting-edge information systems and electronic technology course training and research guidance.
Promotion of the high-tech industry-university cooperation program also involves frequent technology transfers: The geographical closeness of the four schools to ITRI and the Hsinchu Science Park makes it easier to work with high-tech manufacturers in promoting industry-university cooperation plans and guide the direction of technological R&D.

3.International Academic Cooperation Plan

Each of the four schools in UST maintains an Office of International Affairs to set up and coordinate cooperative with many well-known foreign schools and research units. These offices plus state-of-the-art information systems and electronic technology make international cooperation more stable and strong. Cooperative partners include the National Research Council of Canada, the National Science Council of the US and other well-known academic and research institutions such as the University of California at Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, UCLA, the University of Florida, Sophia University of Spain, Chalmers University of Technology of Sweden and other well-known universities, all involved in exchanges, research projects, academic lectures, short courses and other areas of cooperation with UST.

4.Research Results

UST boasts strong research teams in the area of state-of-the-art information systems and electronic technology, with published papers in IEEE and other distinguished journals and an impressive collection of international honors and awards. Under a large-scale integrated and long-term sustainability plan developed by the Ministry of Education, the four schools of UST have implemented programs in the fields of electronics, telecommunications, Internet, microelectronics, and optical information systems. These include the “Trillion Dollar Era in Optoelectronics Technology"," the "Forward-looking Telecom Technology Development Plan," the "Next Generation in Information and Communication Network Cutting-edge Technology and Applications", the "Next Generation Intelligent Transportation Systems”, and “R&D in Organic LEDs and State-of-the-art Materials and Component". They have also set up and implemented a number of programs under the National Science Council including system-on-chip development as part of the National Science and Technology and National Telecommunications Science and Technology programs, and they actively participate in academic technology programs under the Ministry of Economic Affairs. Other plans for the future include integrated projects such as the Excellence Project, a national program developed to enhance the R&D potential of state-of-the-art research projects.
