In the past few years, the high-tech industries, such as semiconductor, electronic, information, communication, photonic, biomedical and energy technology, have grown up vigorously in Taiwan. They will become the core competitive advantages of our country in the twenty-first century. The requirements of lighter, thinner, shorter, and smaller products have induced rigorous demands for high precision of devices and manufacturing equipment and have also promoted a revolution in manufacturing technologies. The trend is towards ultra precision, integration, speed, smartness, digitalization, and miniaturization. In view of the advanced manufacture technologies, Huafan University has established the Advanced Manufacturing Research Center (AMRC) in 2006 to promote research activities in these areas of studies and to equip our graduates with competitive edges and high-tech professionalism.

Our mission is to provide a cooperative platform between Huafan University and industrial circles. The executive strategy is to establish a high standard research environment and culture to encourage researchers in each institute and department to be involved in our projects. The objectives of the center are:
 Academic research;
 Cooperation between academy and industry;
 Education spread;
 Industrial service.

Development and Research Foci
To meet the urgent core manufacturing technology requirements of industries, the developmental direction and research foci of the initial stage focus on the applications of the industries of 3C, semiconductor, and energy. Considering the constitute diversities, we will integrate manufacturing technologies, system equipments, design and material analysis, and information system, as shown in Figure 1. The development directions and research foci are intended to be integrated, applicable, sustainable, and extendable.
