Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, together with Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co., Ltd. jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding to support research and development (R&D) for engineering innovation through 5G, AI and Cloud. This collaboration aims to support the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, on its R&D for engineering innovation. This will also help drive Thailand forward to full-scale digital transformation.
Prof. Dr. Supot Teachavorasinskun, Dean, Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, stated, “It is an honor to join forces with Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co., Ltd. This MOU for academic cooperation is an important milestone in conducting joint research action with a global leading company in 5G, Cloud and AI solutions. Through Faculty of Engineering’s large body of knowledge accumulated over decades of experience, Huawei’s technology will empower our knowledge base and result in greater benefits in education, research and further development of various innovations, especially on robot and automation system as well as the development of Virtual Reality (VR) educational content. This partnership will lead us towards the exchange and enhancement of technological knowledge in response to digital transformation. It will also enable robots invented by our faculty members and students in our robotics laboratory to be more intelligent and to be automatically operated with AI and 5G technology. These locally developed robots will be of high innovation value for multiple practical purposes, which can address key local and global issues for accelerated digital transformation. Lastly, this academic cooperation will also ready our students and researchers for future innovation.”
Mr. Max Ma, Deputy Managing Director, Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co., Ltd, added, “We are deeply honored to be a part of this significant collaboration. Huawei is delighted to offer tools, technology and training, and work together with the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, to leverage 5G, Cloud, and AI to help support R&D for the faculty’s innovation, while bringing technology to drive Thailand’s innovative capability through education, which is an important foundation for the country’s development.”
The Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn university, has been conducting R&D programs on robotic system and automatic control system that contributes to industrial workforces and medical robots, and in particular, on robots used in the recovery process of patients suffering from strokes. Additionally, the development program will also include Virtual Reality (VR) that is anticipated to help online classes to build an immersive study-friendly experience for learners. This five-year period MOU will utilize the integrated technology of 5G, Cloud, and AI from Huawei to strengthen the potential and efficiency on remote control system and processor of such engineering inventions. Results from the program will also be analyzed for further adaptation in the development across other fields. Furthermore, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Thailand has been continuously cooperating with the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, in hosting seminars with world-class technological and solutions experts to share their experience and expertise exclusively with faculty, students and researchers, in expanding the academic potential of using fully efficient technology.
