Three college boys used to dream about building an electric car. Since their dormitory days at NCKU, the trio have come a long way. They were persistent in the pursuit of their dream and managed to draw 30 like-minded classmates into joining their team “NCKU Formula Students” in the Formula SAE competition that was held in Shizuoka, Japan in September 2019. After the competition, the team returned to Taiwan and joined forces with NCKU’s department of mechanical engineering student-formed racing team “NCKUME Racing” to form the “NCKU Formula Racing” team, which currently has 55 members strong. The newly formed team will endeavor to reach new heights in the 2020 competition.
Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare genetic condition that causes skin diseases and ulcerations. Those who have this condition are bound to a life of perpetual open wounds and endless amounts of gauze. NCKU has been a long-time investor in the research and development of the condition and its treatments. In order to bring more awareness to the condition, NCKU held a benefit concert in January 2020. Even international professional tennis player Hsieh Su-wei , who normally does not engage in celebrity endorsement activities, shot a charity commercial as a way to support the cause. NCKU hopes that through these efforts more people can come to learn about those suffering from epidermolysis bullosa.
