I. Origin
To promote city culture tourisms and educational promotion
exchanges, a team led by the mayor has visited the Indian Institute of
Technology (Delhi) on March 31, 2017 to conduct exchanges and reach an
academic cooperation and student exchange consensus. The Department of
Education, Taipei City Government has invited the central authorities,
Taipei Computer Association (TCA), the relevant offices of the Taipei City
Government, and six northern universities to explore the industry
cooperation, internship media and other personnel recruitments plans for
Taiwan. The project initially uses the TCA as the internship employment
platform. Six universities: University of Taipei, National Taiwan University,
National Tsing Hua University, National Chiao Tung University, National
Taiwan University of Science and Technology, and National Taipei
University of Technology have jointly participated for their departments to
conduct enrollment and use the TCA platform to provide work and study
opportunities and job-matches. The government shall provide full tuition
and accommodation subsidies for these students and help with their
visa-related matters. The project is set to start in Feb. 2018.

learn different languages and cultures; and inspire the local students to take
on in-depth experiences, entrepreneurship, and expand the market and
economic strength of Taiwan to the Southeast and Southern Asia.
