NCU Corporate Expo: The Number of Exhibitors Reached an All-time High
After the Covid-19 pandemic, the NCU Corporate Expo was grandly held on March 26, 2023. 136 enterprises joined the expo and almost 7,000 job vacancies were open for application. In addition, the scale of this talent recruitment fair was the largest compared to the fairs held each year in the past. This year, the whole expo included six cross-discipline themes: humanities and social sciences, business and management, science and engineering, inter-disciplines, environmental, social, and governance (ESG), and foreign talent. It was also the first time that “classroom recruitment” was held; students could visit different classrooms to know more about each company and outline their career blueprints.
Double Recognition from National Innovation Award and Excelsior Award: Research Team at Dept. of Electrical Engineering Advanced the Technology for Caring for the Disadvantaged

Hsieh Hsuan at the Dept. of CSIE, National Figure Skater, Develops an Action Analysis System for Figure Skating
Hsieh Hsuan and Wu Ping-Hung, senior students at the Department of Computer Science & Information Engineering (CSIE) in NCU, under the supervision of Professor Chou Li-Der, developed the “Figure Skating Action Analysis System,” which was the very first software for automated analysis of figure skating jumps in Taiwan. The system also won the silver prize for smart machinery in the 2022 National Intercollegiate Contest for Smart Innovation and Cross-domain Integration. This automated motion analysis software can greatly assist figure skaters in reviewing and adjusting their jump performances.
NCU Student Tsai Jr-Chiun, Taiwan's Pride in the Asian Try Zero-G 2022 Project
The Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF) initiated the Asian Beneficial Collaboration in many aspects. “Asian Try Zero-G 2022” is one of the collaborative projects through which the APRSAF invited young people to propose some simple space experiments. “The Water Vortex in a Zero-Gravity Condition,”proposed by NCU student Tsai Jr-Chiun, passed the domestic preliminary selection by the Taiwan Space Agency (TASA). The proposal was further sent to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) for international final selection. Tsai’s experimental theme stood out and was elected as the representative of Taiwan.
