On September 27, 2016, OIT and Tatung University (TTU) in Taiwan signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop cooperation in teaching, research and student exchange between two universities.
TTU is a teaching- and research-oriented private university located in Taipei, Taiwan, and well recognized for its engineering and management programs. It is interesting that TTU’s background of establishment is similar to OIT’s. Aware that having a well-educated and talented work force is crucial to the long-term success of a business, Mr. Shan-Chih Lin, founder of Tatung Company, donated 80% of his personal assets to an association to establish Tatung Institute of Technology which is now known as Tatung University.
With this MOU, we are expecting various types of exchange between two universities starting from a student exchange program being planned by OIT Department of Biomedical Engineering.
