  • This proposal aims to introduce more foreign talent to Taiwan’s high-tech industry

National Taiwan University (NTU) has recently released a project to set up an international semiconductor program.

According to the deal, the university would hire 25 students initially from all over the word. After the two-year pilot period, the four-year bachelor’s degree program would be open to 50 foreign students a year.

This program has been proposed under the Act for National Key Fields Industry-University Cooperation and Skilled Personnel Training. This proposal aims to introduce more foreign talent to Taiwan’s high-tech industry.

Students who graduate — a requirement of which is to pass a Mandarin proficiency test equivalent to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages B1 level — can continue their studies at other research institutes established under the act or at semiconductor-related graduate schools, NTU said.

While the program is expected to incorporate “academic capacity” from the College of Engineering, the College of Science, the College of Bioresources and Agriculture, and the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, students from those colleges can be assured that the program would not take resources away from them, NTU officials said.

NTU President Chen Wen-chang has addressed concerns raised during the recent school affairs meeting. He mentioned that these concerns will be thoroughly discussed during the upcoming meeting, and a formal application for the proposed program will be submitted to the Ministry of Education.

Taiwan is a major player in the semiconductor industry, contributing to 90% of the world’s most advanced semiconductors. The success of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC), the world’s largest contract chipmaker, is highly sought after by other nations, especially in light of global supply chain challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and geopolitical tensions.

During the same meeting, the university approved the establishment of a college of international political economy, despite some initial reservations from student and faculty representatives who had voted to postpone the plans in October due to concerns about funding.
