Taiwan-Paraguay Polytechnic University Offers Preparatory Courses to Build a Flagship University for Central and South America in 15 Years
 
 
Asuncion, Aug. 14, CAN
 
 
Taiwan and Paraguay have jointly established Taiwan-Paraguay Polytechnic University (Universidad Politechnica Taiwan-Paraguay, UPTP), and Taiwan Tech will help provide instructors. President of Taiwan Tech Liao Ching-Jong said that in perhaps 10 or at most 15 years, this university could become the best university of science and technology in Central and South America.
 
 
Taiwan and Paraguay signed a letter of intent to establish UPTP in December 2017. Taiwan will guide the development of UPTP, which will specialize in cultivating engineering and technological talent in Paraguay. The university will offer degrees in civil and construction engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering and information engineering. 
 
 
Paraguay is responsible for providing the budget funding and constructing the campus buildings. Taiwan Tech will help provide instructors, design curricula and develop overall blueprints for the university, as well as investing in laboratory equipment. So far preparatory courses are being offered, and the university is scheduled to formally open in March next year.
 
 
President Tsai Ing-Wen attended the opening ceremony for the preparatory courses in math and English at UPTP as her first stop in Paraguay today, testifying to the achievements in educational cooperation between Taiwan and Paraguay. She hopes that one day UPTP will become one of the most outstanding young universities like Taiwan Tech, cultivating engineers that can contribute to the development of Paraguay.
 
 
Taiwan Tech President Liao Ching-Jong pointed out in an interview that “We are certain that in perhaps 10 or a maximum of 15 years, UPTP could become the best university of science and technology in Central and South America.” He said that so far the degrees will be based on a four-year system. After four years, students will have the chance to pursue a Master’s or Ph.D. at Taiwan Tech or other universities of science and technology in Taiwan for advanced research.
 
 
Professor Shiou Fang-Jung of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Taiwan Tech mentioned that the 400 students in the preparatory courses were selected from among 4000 applicants, and the lowest passing GPA was 4.91 out of a full score of 5. He said the university is honored to be able to teach some of the best students in the world. However, the pressure is also great. The school will do its best and make every effort to bring great credit to Taiwan and carry on people-to-people diplomacy.
 
 
Assistant Professor Teng Fu-Chen of the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering noticed that the front rows in the classroom were the first to be taken by the students, showing their enthusiasm for learning.
