The objective of education at the MDIC is to promote not only to lead the industrial economy associated with medical device development in Taiwan, but also to cultivate high potential talents for innovating medical equipment. To further strengthen and enhance incubation in gaining knowledge of the medical device innovation a certificate program of system in medical device which integrate with teaching, research and industry- academy was proceeded by integrating the current Center’s task forces with various members across countries, colleges and departments of various campuses as well as the Innovation Center for Medical Devices and Technology of the University at NCKU Hospital. The program is specifically designed for junior and senior undergraduate students to focus on five main study areas such as engineering biology, biomechanics, biomaterials, biomedical electronics and biomedical systems. To complete the program, at least one course in each area of study is required, and up to a total of six courses is necessary to fulfill the certificate program requirements.
Since becoming the first universtiy promoting the STB biodesign program in 2012, MDIC-NCKU has cultivated almost 500 researchers from interdisciplinary fields. Even better, MDIC-NCKU was certified by Stanford University, and became an official one of the two qualified instituions in Taiwan.
