Visit Taiwan for Development of Aeronautical Engineering and Aviation Curriculum

Prof. Li Cheng (Chair Professor and Head) and Dr. ZQ Su (Associate Professor) were invited to attend “Taiwan Innovative Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle (UAV) Design Competition and Forum” organized by the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Taiwan from 8 to 11 March, 2012.

This year, the “Taiwan Innovative Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle (UAV) Design Competition and Forum” attracted more than 80 teams of undergraduate students from Universities across South Asia countries to participate in the competition. Contesting teams were required to exhibit and demonstrate UAVs, most of which were designed, manufactured and manoeuvred by the students studying aeronautical engineering or mechanical engineering.

The Department has established a close connection with the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering at NCKU. Furthermore, invaluable views and experience have been collected during the visit which will be very conducive to the Department’s development of the new Aeronautical Engineering and Aviation curriculum in PolyU.
