Taiwan Association of Engineering and Technology Innovation
The Taiwan Association of Engineering and Technology Innovation (TAETI) was founded in 2011 in
Taiwan at its first meeting. At present, the location of the Association is in Yunlin County.
The Taiwan Association of Engineering and Technology Innovation (TAETI) operates for the purposes
of promoting professional engineering and technology innovation, improving related academic research,
and upgrading standards of current engineering and technology. Facing rapidly changing engineering and
technology needs and priorities, the TAETI works hard to maintain its strengths, while pursuing further
opportunities to help members. Today, TAETI has nearly 60 members, including the higher education
institutions and engineering and technology organization.
