Directed by Dr. Ma Ter-ming of Dept. of Aerospace Engineering, Chen Pei-chung, third year graduate student, and Lin Yuan-chung, an alumnus of the department, participated the “2009 Taiwan Robot Aircraft Design Competition,” and won the second place in “Out of Sight UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Design Competition.” Dr. Ma encourages more students to join the competition and use their imagination to utilize and practice what they have learned in school.

This competition events, which took place in Likang Village of Pingtung County, were sponsored by Aeronautical Society of ROC, National Science Council, Pingtung County, and National Cheng Kung University.
