Hong Jia-wei and Zeng Xiao-qing, first-year students from the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, finished second at the 2017 National Health-Information Creativity Competition.
 
With over 160 competitors, Hong and Zeng distinguished themselves with their silver medal entry, which cleverly integrated chopsticks with a temperature sensor that not only automatically identifies food temperature, but also sends out necessary alerts. They developed the product to prevent young children and the elderly from burning themselves with hot food.
 
The success of Hong and Zeng can be be attributed to the outstanding abilities that they have learned at FCU, particularly in the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, which has actively integrated the CDIO educational framework—that is, conceive, design, implement, and operate—into its curriculum. CDIO is an outcome-oriented system of education that emphasizes innovative courses. At the same time, the department offers flexible suplementary resources, such as micro-credit courses organized by the Center for General Education, to ensure students gain the skills and knowledge required to develop expertise in product development and design.
