Project Types

Top-down method
  • Project type A (Committee recommended project)
  • Interested students apply to topics suggested by academic advisors, to find their academic advisors accordingly

  • Project type C (Industry-academia cooperation project)
  • Projects involving local enterprises. Local enterprises apply with research topics related to their technological bottlenecks, to which professors/researchers working in relevant fields apply to provide guidance. Interested students apply to participate in the respective research topics and groups are formed accordingly

Bottom-up method
  • Project type B (Student proposed project)
  • Students develop their own topics and form groups, then find suitable academic advisors/researchers
