Electronic Engineering Department Held Taiwan Electronics Design Contest 2021
Release Date 12 April 2021
Taiwan Electronics Design Contest has been held by the Electronic Engineering Department for 17 consecutive years. It was held along with a webinar this year. Although the COVID-19 pandemic prompted all the events to be held online as it was last year, the contest still attracted university and high school students across the nation.
The contest was divided into three categories: electronic application, information communication technology (ICT), and big data and mobile application. Each category has high school student participants and undergraduate participants.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the panel of judges evaluated and assessed all works online and chose the top five winners for each group category. A total of thirty award-winning teams developed works covering ideas related to storage application, smart agriculture and fisheries, transportation and logistics, smart home application, and industry application.
With the outbreak of COVID-19 last year, automated systems and applications have drawn great attention from the public. During this contest, many teams presented their creative idea and design, combing with their strong IT skills to develop applicable works.
NKUST released the final winners at the end of March and invited all winning teams to participate in the in-site award ceremony on April 10th.
“Electronic Engineering Department has been holding the Taiwan Electronics Design Contest for years, which has been offering high school and university students across the nation an opportunity to present their best innovative works. This year, we add a new webinar along with the contest to invite scholars to exchange thoughts with these young talents,” says President Yang.
The webinar consists of e-poster presentations and two keynote speeches - distinguished Professor Lee, Tsair-Fwu majoring in Electronic Engineering, and Professor Chou, Fu-I majoring in Electrical Engineering. The contestants would be able to browse all accepted posters via the e-poster gallery during and after the contest.
“...the high number of participants in this contest shows a strong potentiality in Taiwan's electronics and ICT industries...reflects the efforts and resources that NKUST Electronic Engineering Department has been investing in training our students with knowledge and skills to create solutions”
Overall, the high number of participants in this contest shows a strong potentiality in Taiwan's electronics and ICT industries. Moreover, it reflects the efforts and resources that NKUST Electronic Engineering Department has been investing in training our students with knowledge and skills to create solutions, said President Yang.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked on the industries and economies of many countries. But, in stark contrast, Taiwan has witnessed an exponential growth in the electronics and ICT industries, which indicated their importance.”
