Taipei, Nov. 29 (CNA) National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) on Thursday signed a partnership deal with the U.S.-based IEEE Communications Society to run the society's wireless communication engineering technologies (WCET) certificate examinations and training programs in Taiwan.
With the signing of the agreement, Taiwan became the second country to ink a partnership deal with the society's certification system following Japan, said Cheng Ray-guang, a professor in NTUST's Department of Electronic Engineering.
The university hopes through the certified training program and certificate process to cultivate international-level engineering professionals as the WCET certification covers a wide range of knowledge in the wireless communication industry, Cheng said.
An applicant must hold a bachelor's degree or above and have at least three years related working experience, Cheng said.
People who pass the four-hour exam are required to attend training courses, seminars and publish papers after receiving a certificate, which is valid for five years.
The exams will be held periodically throughout spring and fall next year on the Taipei campus, with the first tests taking place between April 7 and May 4.
People wishing to take the exams are required to register before March 22.
