On November 26, 2014, eight international visitors from Suranaree University of Technology(SUT), Thailand, paid a visit to Taiwan Tech. Previously, Dr. Wichit Srisa-an, the Board Chairman of SUT, had attended the graduation ceremony of Taiwan Tech in June earlier this year, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate. Over the long-term, a friendly relationship has been built between the two institutions. The first stop of this most recent delegation of visitors from Suranaree was the International Building(IB), Conference Room 204, where the President of Taiwan Tech, Ching-Jong Liao, received the guests in person. Vice-president Duu-Jong Lee, Dean of the College of Design – Professor Wei-Hwa Chiang, and Associate Dean of the College of Engineering – Professor Yee-Wen Yen also joined the meeting. Both parties then proceeded to sign a partnership agreement, laying a cornerstone for future academic cooperation. Their next stop was the Taiwan Building Technology Center (TBTC), where Wei-Hwa Chiang, CEO of the TBTC, personally presented an overview of the facility, including explanations of everything from the detachable aluminum plates on the outside wall to the well thought-out design of the inner air-conditioning system, all of which deeply impressed the visitors.
Lastly, our guests were invited to a banquet hosted by Taiwan Tech in the Su Hang Restaurant. Both hosts and guests enjoyed themselves thoroughly. This visit allowed both parties to take a deeper look into the higher education of Taiwan and to elaborate on the details of future cooperation, leading the visit to a highly productive conclusion. Hopes are high for further opportunities to interact and develop a closer relationship.
