Since 1960, the beginning of the semiconductor evolution in Taiwan, National Chiao Tung University has been soliciting experts at home and abroad to committed to furthering the research, development, and education in this field. Far-Eastern Electronics and the National Telecommunications Training Center was first established at National Chiao Tung University with the support from United Nations Special Foundation. This center then gradually developed into the present Nano Facility Center (NFC). With scholars' wholehearted devotion, they have helped not only elevate the high technology in this field, but also produce highly-trained professionals. It is no wonder that so many of the prominent executives in semiconductor industry are Chiao Tung alumni.
The main objective of this center is to educate hi-tech professionals for whom there is a great demanded both in academic and industrial fields. This will consequently promote academic research in electronics and further the development of the IC industry. Furthermore, other prior research has been conduced in communications, displays, power devices, micro optics, and micro electromechanical systems, packaging and testing. In the future, the NFC will cooperate with the NDL to continue developing submicron technology to support more advanced research, training, education, and services.
