FEATURE: Teacher seeks to engineer student inventors

By Chen Yi-ching and Jake Chung  /  Staff reporter, with staff writer

Due to retire in two years, Lai hopes to produce more talented personnel for the field of mechanical engineering by training students early on in vocational high schools.

“If there were no inventors, the human race would not be where it is right now — the camera, the book in which you write, the pen in my hands, these are all inventions that solve problems that society has encountered,” Lai said.

As the living embodiment of the phrase “Joy in creation” (造物最樂) that hangs in the hall of the department’s research building, Lai derives joy from creating, whether what he is producing is a mechanical invention or talented graduates.
