The aim of AIM-HI is research and development of key technologies for the next generation of intelligent precision manufacturing systems. Beyond the direct applications to precision machining, the technologies developed are also expected to find viable applications in other systems, including intelligent robots and vehicles and eco-friendly fabrication processes in the semiconductor and flat panel display industries−the two major industries in Taiwan.


To ensure the quality of advanced research and to raise the visibility of the Institute from a nationally known entity to an internationally recognized Institute, we have formed an International Advisory Board and an Industrial Advisory Board, both comprising of distinguished scholars, scientists and industrial representatives, all recognized at the international level for their achievement in engineering and related fields. The primary mission of both advisory boards is to provide AIM-HI team with counsel and guidance on all aspects of our project, including strategy, operational policies, research, teaching, internationalization, and industrial applications. By fostering relationship with scholars/scientists/industrial representatives from various institutions, companies and manufacturing centers around the globe, the International Advisory Board and Industrial Advisory Board not only helps sustain the growth and development of the Institute, but also boost the potential for international and industry-academia collaborations.
