Academic and Industry Collaboration

Beginning in 2010, factory shortages inspired ZIG SHENG to begin semester and year-long academic industry collaboration initiatives with several vocational schools and technical universities, including Daojiang High School of Commerce, Hsuan Chuang University, St. John's University, and Wu Feng University, across various academic disciplines where students could apply to participate in flagship courses at our factories. Almost 20% of students returned to ZIG SHENG upon graduation or completion of military service and some now serve as entry level team managers.

Beginning in 2017, ZIG SHENG sought to cultivate mid-level management by expanding our year-long and semester academic industry collaboration to include: National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, National Chin-Yi University of Technology, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology, National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology (affiliated senior high school), Kun Shan University, Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology, and Tunghai University; across academic disciplines such as chemical materials, fibers, electric engineering, electronics, and mechanical engineering.
