Office of Research and Development
The Office of Research and Development (ORD) has been established as a bridge or platform among the university, government, organizations, and enterprises for strengthening the collaboration and resource sharing. The ORD consists of the main office and three centers including (1)Center of Institutional Research and Development Center(CIRD), (2)Manpower Promotion Center (MPC), (3) Technology Transfer Center (TTC), and (4)Service-center of Project Affairs (ScPA). Brief introduction of these centers are described as below.
The Center of Institutional Research and Development (CIRD) intends to assist University decision makers in advancing the University’s mission and improving institutional effectiveness through providing accurate and meaningful information and analysis. The tasks include survey analysis, program evaluation, student learning outcome assessment, analysis about faculty research capacity, reporting for Higher Education Sprout Project, etc.
The Manpower Promotion Center (MPC) is to facilitate interactions between the NTUST and enterprises and also to promote NTUST research achievements to industry. Moreover, the IACC is obligated to synchronize NTUST research capability with industrial trends for reducing the lead time of development and therefore, to improve research capacity of industry effectively.
The Technology Transfer Center (TTC) is to promote the research achievement developed by the faculty and students to the industries and, through the continuous interaction with the industries, to enhance the nation's competitiveness and technology development. The TTC has three major functions including (a) providing services to the faculty and students regarding various intellectual property protection and promotion issues, (b) managing the University's various intellectual properties such as know-hows, patents, copyrights, trademarks, and finally (c) bridging the University and the industries by acting as a single contact window and platform.
The Service-center of Project Affairs (ScPA) serves as the window and the management unit for the faculty of the university to conduct research projects and industrial-academic cooperation projects. Our services include assistances in applying for and executing the research projects of the government, the industrial-academic cooperation projects of the public and private sectors, and the international collaborative projects. With the passion to serve faculty and the mission to promote industry upgrading, the GAC devotes itself in promoting the research and innovation capabilities of the faculty, matching the needs of industrial technology, as well as conducting the related administrative support and services. In addition, the GAC is actively seeking all possible domestic and foreign academic research and industrial cooperation opportunities and promoting major subject-oriented cluster plans. In conjunction with the related technical professionals, we shall present the highlights of industrial-academic cooperation outcomes with focused R&D incentives.
Instrumentation Center at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology was established in 2002. The Center was supported by Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and NTUST. The center is responsible for the maintenance and operation of the delicate and expensive facilities, and provides training courses, which cannot be affordable by individual laboratory and faculties. With the Center, the instrument resources can be managed efficiently. There are eleven instruments in center include X-Ray, EM and a few others. The services are provided to all universities, research institutes, and industrial sectors.
