At the first joint round table at the National Chin-Yi University of Technology (NCUT) in Taichung, Representatives of the two university associations discussed how the cooperation between the German HAWtech university association and the Taiwanese TAItech university association can be strengthened and consolidated.

One important topic was the increased exchange of students and teachers. In the future, students from both alliances will have the opportunity to study or practice, attend summer schools or get to know partner institutions on study trips. Teachers should also be able to network in research and teaching and educate themselves at the partner universities.

During the 6-day trip, the representatives of the 6 German HAWtech universities visited all 6 TAItech universities:

  • National Taipei University of Technology,
  • National Taiwan University of Science and Technology,
  • National Chinyi University,
  • National Yunlin University of Technology,
  • National Formosa University and the
  • National Kaohsiung University of Technology.

The programme also included visits to research institutes, technology centres, industry 4.0 centres and idea factories on the partner universities' campuses.

"The Taiwanese partners as well as the German HAWtech universities are very strong in the engineering sciences. Here we want to bundle our know-how in teaching and research and promote exchange in the future," says Professor Roland Stenzel, Rector of the HTW Dresden and current speaker of the HAWtech network.

The cooperation between the two alliances, which exists since 2017, was confirmed with a new contract. The next round table will take place in Germany next year.
