Briefing on Management of National Yang-Ming Chiao Tung University by the candidates to be the First President of the merged University was held in the NYMU Performance Hall

 

National Yang-Ming University and National Chiao Tung University will combine to form “National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University” on 1st February. A briefing on Management of National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University by the candidates to be the First President of the merged University was held on December 14th. There were three candidates, consisting of Professor Lin of NCTU Department of Computer Science, NCTU University System of Taiwan Vice President Lin, and Graduate Institute of Biomedical Informatics Taipei Medical University Professor Li. They spoke about their ideas for school management, their visions for the combined school, and accepted questions from teachers, students and alumni.

 

Professor Lin proposed a complete blueprint for building a “Happy, Healthy and Great University”

 

Professor Lin proposed a complete blueprint for building a “Happy, Healthy and Great University,” consisting of three major aspects related to international academic excellence, creative exploration of the joint campus and a smart aesthetic infrastructure. His hope was to integrate the spirits of the two schools by attaching importance to the humanities, the natural sciences and basic medicine. He also wished to create new structures, including M-BioICT and silicon conductor 2.0, in the area of Science-Based Engineering; this would involve striving for research funds to develop world-class research centers and for organizing many forums. His goal in education would be to cultivate students with integrity and honesty, and to encourage students to pay attention to school affairs in order to help them develop leadership skills. He indicated there are two major challenges facing the newly joined University and that these are a dispersed campus and the effects of COVID-19. Professor Lin remarked that he would establish a campus-wide information and communication system and assign a chief information officer to coordinate the telecommunication information system. In that way the school will be able to offer complete research and development support to its students and staff, while at the same time building a smart campus.

 

 Vice Chancellor Lin of the University System of Taiwan remarked that he hopes National Yang-Ming Chiao Tung University will become a place where all the best and most talented people wish to come

 

Vice Chancellor Lin of the University System of Taiwan remarked that he hopes National Yang-Ming Chiao Tung University will become a place where all the best and most talented people wish to come. It should become a dynamic world in the post-COVID-19 era, with many great opportunities lying ahead. He hopes to invite to YMCT a range of talents from home and abroad that have great insight to new trends, and who are able to grasp opportunities for creating a great future. In the past, NYMU and NCTU have striven to develop each in their own fields, but now it is important to integrate these past efforts and find complementary fields during the foundation of this joint school. Therefore, “inheritance and cultivation” of the fields already established and “fusion and innovation” to create new fields would be important core values of the joint school. The progress needs to be gradual, flexible, open, and tolerant.

 

Professor Li proposed three concepts and placed emphasis on interdisciplinary learning and developing international competitiveness

 

Professor Li proposed three concepts for NYMCTU. First, the joint school incorporating NYMU and NCTU should combine medical care, technology and humanities in order to create short term, medium term and long term blueprints with the goal of becoming one of the world's top 100 universities that are able to attract excellent international scholars and students. Second, NYMCTU should cultivate cross-domain talent and strive to establish a post-bachelor level Department of Medicine by strengthens the development of cross-domain doctoral degrees in biology, medicine and engineering. This would help bridging into continuous education, as well as developing cross-domain research and cultivating students who are people-oriented, innovative and show entrepreneurship. After graduation, students should have the ability to think independently and be able to serve industry. Li expressed his hope to increase the size of the University by recruiting 100-200 cross-disciplinary teachers together with 1000 international/doctoral students over five years. Third, he wanted NYMCTU to promote early medical care by combining Taiwan’s advantages in the medical and electronic industries; this would involve developing digital medical interventions, deepening translation capabilities, expanding the concepts needed for future hospitals, and developing a translation ecosystem with the two physical campuses as the core. With these concepts, his hope was to achieve the education goal of, “the best doctors are able to cure patients when they are healthy, while mediocre doctors cure patients when they are already sick.”
