Center of Academia and Industry Collaboration

The Center of Academia-Industry Collaboration comprises the Industry-University Business Development Division, Value-Added Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Division, and Industry-University Administrative Services Division. It was established to procure industry-academia cooperation, strengthen commercialization of patented products, and enhance the efficiency of administrative support.


The center employs professional managers to assist STUST in pursuit of various aims, including interdisciplinary integration and value-added technology, patent commercialization, entrepreneurship incubation counseling, technology transfer and academia-industry cooperation. The center aims to act as a bridge between STUST and industries, improve our interaction with industries, upgrade our service capacity, and further develop  our investment and management operations in a variety of industries and businesses.

The Center of Academia-Industry Collaboration is working together with the Innovation Incubation of STUST in promoting school-run enterprises and in the development of new business ventures. Meanwhile, following the operation models of internationally renowned institutions involving academia-industry (e.g. ISIS Innovation of the University of Oxford, NUS Enterprise of the University of Singapore), the center will organize a venture capital system based on the surplus of school operation and the donations of alumni, board directors, and  industrial owners. It will lay a solid foundation for the sustainable development of STUST.

Project management Division

Base on its advantages and background conditions, STUST has established a mechanism to integrate its personnel training with research and development of its academia-industry cooperation. In response to the needs of industries and related resource, STUST has developed a special project with three sub-projects: "personnel training," "academia-industry research," and "system adjustment," which will enhance the effectiveness of personal training program for industry-university cooperation and the value-adding plan for intellectual property. We are actively promoting the sub-projects in order to realize the core value of technical and vocational education—pragmatic and useful.


STUST has positioned itself as the best partner for academia-industry cooperation, striving for excellence in both teaching and academia-industry cooperation and to fulfill the responsibilities of its role as a technical and vocational education paradigm of universities of science and technology. We aim at diverse development of our own personnel training and technological research, keeping a long-term cooperation with related industries in training specialists, developing patented products, and promoting value-adding human resources and intellectual property. In addition, we are committed to practical education, industry-university cooperation, personnel training, and higher employment of its graduates, with the purpose of accentuating the significance and uniqueness of higher vocational education as a link between specialized training and industrial development. We expect to be a leader in the future development of the technical and vocational school system, offering a guideline for universities of science and technology in making pragmatism as the core value of their student training and cooperation with industries. As a leader, we expect to keep pace with the best universities worldwide and help improve the quality and competitiveness of higher vocational education in Taiwan.
