  Tsing Hua University Celebrates Delta Hall Groundbreaking
 
  Tsing Hua University and Delta Electronics construct a green classroom building  
   
Taipei, October 31, 2008 – National Tsing Hua University conducted a groundbreaking ceremony today for its new green classroom building, Delta Hall. The ceremony was jointly carried out by Bruce Cheng, the chairman of Delta Electronics, Inc., and Mr. Wen Tsuen Chen, president of Tsing Hua University. Founder and Chairman of Delta Electronics Bruce Cheng contributed the funding for the construction of Delta Hall, which was supplemented with government funding. The school named the new building Delta Hall as a gesture of gratitude to Delta Electronics.

Delta Hall is a nine story, steel-reinforced concrete building with two basement floors. The area of the site measures 2,853 square meters (863 pings). The building's total floor size measures 29,185 square meters (8,828 pings). Completion and utilization of the new building is estimated for September 2010. In line with Delta's mission "to provide innovative, clean and efficient energy solutions for a better tomorrow," the building aims for an economical structural design while maintaining strict budget control. The structure's modular design conforms to the terrain, displaces a minimum volume of earth and achieves a large space with an independent basement. Environmental aspects of the design include favorable ventilation, sunlight collection and shade. The Architecture and Building Research Institute, Ministry of the Interior, has awarded the building a candidate green building license based on fulfilling six criteria: 1. Greenery; 2. Soil Water Content; 3. Daily Energy Saving; 4. Indoor Environment; 5. Water Resource; 6. Sewage and Garbage Improvement, and achieving future energy-savings. Delta Hall will provide classrooms for the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Department of Material Science and Engineering, and Institute of NanoEngineering and Microsystems. The building's exterior will match the red color scheme of Tsing Hua's campus buildings, and its primary use will be for the Arts and Sciences.

President Chen pointed out that Delta Electronics is universally recognized for its outstanding contributions to the technology industry as well as society. On October 16th 2008, Delta Electronics was named the Most Admired Company in the Electronics Industry for the seventh year in a row by CommonWealth Magazine. In addition, Bruce Cheng was again chosen as the Most Admired Executive. What is rare is that Delta Electronics is a model of business success while making continuous and dedicated efforts in the areas of environmental protection and education. Delta serves as a classic example of a socially responsible enterprise. President Chen also expressed his gratitude for Delta's long-term support to Tsing Hua, including the Sun Yuan-suan Chair of Technology, research awards for new staff, industry and academic cooperation, and the cultivation of technology management talent. President Chen said the quality of cooperation between Delta and Tsing Hua will produce new and outstanding talent for Taiwan.

Mr. Cheng said he was delighted to contribute to academic development, which stimulates industrial progress, and he affirmed Tsing Hua's concepts for education. Mr. Cheng said he established the "Sun Yuan-suan Chair of Technology" in 2001 out of respect for Mr. Sun Yuan-suan and to encourage talent for the country by assisting academic institutions with hardware and software. He hoped that it would live up to the expectations of Mr. Sun and be worthy of the devotion and sacrifice of Mr. K. T. Lee.

The day of the groundbreaking included a briefing by the architect and a groundbreaking ceremony. The honored guests were also treated to enthusiastic performances by the student orchestra, cheerleaders, and student dancers, which contributed to a cheerful and lively atmosphere.
