NTNU being the top choice of future teachers, it’s of utmost importance to recruit distinguished professors that can pass on the knowledge to the next generation. A Center of Astronomy and Gravitation is about to established under the College of Science
Times Higher Education has announced the latest World University Rankings 2020/2021 in early September and National Taiwan Normal University is ranked 606th in the world, 46 places higher than last year. A closer look at the various indicators reveals that NTNU's score for International Outlook remains top 1 in Taiwan. The score of our Research results rose dramatically, which proves that the measures taken for improving the quality of paper and internationalization are effective ones.
Chair professor and outstanding alumnus of NTNU, Prof. Shih Shu Mei was appointed the inaugural Edward W. Said Professor of Comparative Literature at UCLA in mid-July. Prof. Shih is tremendously important in the development of Taiwan studies in UCLA. A graduate from the English Department, she initiated the collaboration and mutual exchange opportunities between UCLA and NTNU. What’s more, the annual event of Taiwan studies was also held in UCLA. Prof. Shih said that Taiwan studies has been decentralized for many years, it’s her honor to be given the title and hopes to fight for more attention academically.
As we embark on a new semester, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all faculty, staff, and students back to campus, whether you are returning from a summer break, or just beginning your first term.
As 3nm process manufacturing kicked-off, the development is not as smooth as expected. Associate Professor Lan Yann Wen and Postdoctoral researcher Chun I. Lu from the Department of Physics at National Taiwan Normal University participated in the Taiwan-German cross-border research team formed by the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (NSRRC). They have studied the "Cobalt/Molybdenum Disulfide Heterostructure" and found that through heterostructure "orbital hybridization", "spontaneous magnetic anisotropy" may be produced. If it is used in electronic components in the future, the development of semiconductor and optoelectronic industries may reach a breakthrough.
