Delta Electronics Foundation launches a radio website to commemorate Principal Chung Laung

Text by: Delta Electronics Foundation

The world was shocked with remorse when National Tsing Hua University's former Principal Chung Laung Liu suddenly passed away at the end of last year. Mr. Bruce Cheng, Founder of Delta and Chairman of Delta Electronics Foundation, has known Principal Liu as a good friend of thirty years. Knowing that Principal Liu was committed to promoting general science education through radio broadcast, Mr. Cheng commissioned a radio station to produce "Talks with Principal Liu" (https://www.chunglaungliu.com), where anyone with Internet access can listen to over 800 episodes of brilliant radio shows that Principal Liu recorded for the past fifteen years. The contents of these shows range from literature and arts, general science, digital society, and daily life. The shows are also available on various Podcast platforms, so that Principal Liu can continue to impact us on air.

Not only was Principal Liu an internationally renowned pioneer in information science around the world who contributed toward computer-aided design (CAD) and discrete mathematics, but he was also a famed educator in the Chinese-speaking areas. Having studied at National Cheng Kung University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Liu taught at the University of Illinois before being recruited to teach at NTHU. He was also a Fellow at the Academia Sinica. Besides educating the youth on campus, he also became a radio show host on FM97.5, where he shared his well-read and enriched life experiences with his dedicated audience members on air in each week.

Mr. Bruce Cheng, Founder of Delta and Chairman of Delta Electronics Foundation, commented that Principal Liu was more than just an award-winning scholar, he was also a wise man who never stopped learning. In December 2015, Principal Liu had attended multiple events with Delta's delegate team during the famous Paris Agreement, where the world anticipated much-needed change. It was also during this time when Liu had expressed his high hopes for Delta via poet Du Fu's poem, roughly translated to mean "We can only build resilient and sturdy houses by providing shelter to disadvantaged students around the world". We hope to touch even more people via Principal Liu's wisdom and humor, as well as his down-to-earth and well-read manners via the latest digital broadcasting technology.
