The campus is conveniently located, neighboring several national research institutes and Hsinchu Science Park, the silicon valley of Taiwan. The close location strengthens the collaboration between the academia and the electronics industry. In China, miniature models of ships that feature steering oars have been dated to the Zhou Dynasty (c. 1050 BC – 256 BC). Stern mounted rudders started to appear on Chinese ship models starting in the 1st century AD. However, the Chinese continued to use the steering oar long after they invented the rudder, since the steering oar still had limited practical use for inland rapid-river travel. One of oldest known depiction of a stern-mounted rudder in China can be seen on a 2 ft. long tomb pottery model of a junk (Junk (ship)) dating from the 1st century AD, during the Han Dynasty (202 BC-220 AD). Needham, Volume 4, Part 3, 649-650. Fairbank, 192. It was discovered in Guangzhou in an archaeological excavation carried out by the Guangdong Provincial Museum and Academia Sinica of Taiwan in 1958. Within decades, several other Han Dynasty ship models featuring rudders were found in archaeological excavations. Deng, Gang. (1997).

He also became the first Academic Scholar of the Humanity Division (人文組院士) of the Academia Sinica and a representative in the National People's Delegate Conferences (國民大會). He moved to Taiwan and was the teacher of Chiang Ching-kuo. He died in Taipei at the age of 88. He has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (中国科学院, People's Republic of China), the Academia Sinica (中央研究院, Republic of China (Taiwan)), the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Royal Society, etc. and was awarded an honorary doctorate by Princeton University (1958), Moscow State University (1992), Chinese University of Hong Kong (1997), etc. field Physics work_institutions Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica University of California at Berkeley Smith College Princeton University Columbia University alma_mater National Central University, China Zhejiang University University of California at Berkeley '''Yuan Tseh Lee''' ( birth death August 15, 398 Academia Sinica Chinese-Western Calendar Converter .

Collaboration attracted the participation of 43 universities, as well as numerous research centers and scholars nationwide, yielding the 12 volume Hanyu Da Cidian or "Comprehensive Dictionary of Chinese Words" in 1993.


education world

Education - World University Rankings is '''107''' in the world. Engineering and Science are the best in Taiwan. There are now 7 colleges, 17 departments and 22 independent graduate institutes in the university. Many Taiwanese business and academic elites received their education in NTHU. The university also produced 12 academicians of the Academia Sinica and one Nobel prize laureate, Lee Yuan-tseh (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1986),

counterpart, which is exclusively composed of institutes in the natural sciences, Taiwan's Academia Sinica covers three major academic divisions: * Mathematics and physical sciences (Physical Sciences) * Life sciences (Life Sciences) * Humanities and social sciences (Social Sciences) The academy was envisioned as an organization that would oversee and coordinate scientific, social science, and humanistic research in all of the Republic of China's state-sponsored research institutes and universities. Unlike other government-sponsored research institutes which are responsible to relevant Executive Yuan ministries, Academia Sinica, as the nation's premier research institution, is directly responsible to the President of the Republic of China. Thus Academia Sinica enjoys autonomy in formulating its own research objectives. In addition to academic research on various subjects in the sciences and humanities, Academia Sinica's major tasks also include providing guidelines, channels of coordination, and incentives with a view to raising academic standards in the country. At the time of Academia Sinica's founding there were already a number of other, smaller institutes in several Chinese cities. Academia Sinica incorporated a number of these into its organization, and rapidly built nine institutes: meteorology, astronomy, physics, chemistry, geology, engineering, psychology, history and philology, and sociology, most of which were located in the new capital city of Nanjing. Research institutions Academia Sinica has 24 research institutes and seven research centers. border "0" cellpadding "5" width "75%" ----- valign "top" width "25%" width "25%" width "25%" ----- valign "top" Division of Mathematics and Physical Sciences *Institute of Mathematics *Institute of Physics *Institute of Chemistry *Institute of Earth Sciences *Institute of Information Science *Institute of Statistical Science *Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences *Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics *Research Center for Applied Science *Research Center for Environmental Changes *Research Center for Information Technology Innovation valign "top" Division of Life Sciences *Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology *Institute of Cellular and Organismic Biology *Institute of Biological Chemistry *Institute of Molecular Biology *Institute of Biomedical Sciences *Agricultural Biotechnology Research Center *Genomics Research Center *Biodiversity Research Center valign "top" Division of Humanities and Social Sciences *Institute of History and Philology *Institute of Ethnology *Institute of Modern History *Institute of Economics *Institute of European and American Studies *Institute of Chinese Literature and Philosophy *Institute of Taiwan History *Institute of Sociology *Institute of Linguistics *Institute of Political Science *Institutum Iurisprudentiae *Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences All institutes and research centers have tenure-tracked research fellows (Research fellow), the equivalent to a tenure-track professor at a western university, who form research groups and carry out their studies with the support of intramural funds as well as external grants. In addition, students from other countries are frequently hosted as summer interns (Internship). Graduate and other education programs In general Academia Sinica is a non-teaching institution, but it has very close collaboration with the top research universities in Taiwan, such as National Chiao Tung University, National Taiwan University, National Tsing Hua University, and National Yang-Ming University. Many research fellows from Academia Sinica have a second appointment or joint professorship at these universities. In addition, Academia Sinica established a joint Ph.D. program in biological science with Taiwan's National Defense University. Through these mechanisms, the faculty at the Academia Sinica give lecture courses and supervise graduate students. Since 2004, Academia Sinica set up the Taiwan International Graduate Program (TIGP), Taiwan International Graduate Program, Academia Sinica, Taiwan. open to local and international students for Ph.D. programs. All courses at TIGP are conducted in English (English language). Students can choose their advisor (Academic advisor) among a faculty selected for the program out of outstanding researchers and professors appointed at Academia Sinica or at one of the partner universities (or both). Currently, admittance to the programme guarantees a monthly stipend of 32,000 NTD (New Taiwan Dollar), roughly $ (USD)1,000 or €715 (Euro). Applications can normally be sent starting in December and the submission deadline is usually set on March 31, for enrolment in September of the same year. Lectures start around the middle of September and end around the middle of June, with slight variations mostly depending on the partner university academic calendar. The TIGP offers Ph.D. programs only in selected disciplines agreed upon by Academia Sinica and its national research universities partners. The program offers doctoral degrees in highly interdisciplinary areas in the physical sciences, applied sciences, engineering, biological and agricultural sciences, health and medical sciences, humanities and social sciences.

According to this theory, China's warlordism needs to be unified by KMT military force in the first phase. After unification, the KMT would rule as a one-party dictatorship and educate the Chinese people about democracy so as to prepare the conditions for democracy. And when the conditions for democracy is ripe, the KMT would start the final phase

to progress towards a constitutional democracy. By 1930s, the Nationalists, having completed the first phase of military nominal unification and taken over the power, started the second phase, and promulgated a provisional constitution for the political tutelage period and began the period of so-called "tutelage".

Academia Sinica

The '''Academia Sinica''' ( , literally "Central Research Academy"; "Chinese Academy" in Latin), headquartered in the Nangang District (Nangang District (Taipei)) of Taipei, is the national academy of Taiwan. It supports research activities in a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from mathematical and physical sciences, to life sciences, and to humanities and social sciences.

Academia Sinica has made great progress in recent years, according to Taiwanese scholar Chang Jui-te. An increasing number of research papers written by its faculty members, which numbered 1,150 in 2001, are appearing in international journals. Some journals published by Academia Sinica itself, such as ''Zoological Studies'' and ''Statistica Sinica'', have received international recognition. Academia Sinica plays a major role in the field of Chinese studies. For example, the archaeological findings by researchers at the Institute of History and Philology have, in combination with written documents, led to a rewriting of ancient Chinese history, pushing back the span of Chinese history by many centuries.
