Professor Chin-Huai Young

I am a Distinguished Professor of Department of Civil and Construction Engineering of National Taiwan University of Science and Technology.  I have been teaching and carrying out research in National Taiwan University of Science & Technology (NTUST) since February 1990 as an Associate Professor, Full Professor and then Distinguished Professor.


My Post-Doctoral research was at Department of Material Science & Metallurgy in University of Cambridge from August 1992 to July 1993.  I was a visiting scholar at Engineering Dynamics, Industrial Research Limited, Crown Research Institute, New Zealand, from June to December 1999 developing a new shaped memory alloy during this period.


I led a team called “Heat Insulation Solar Glass, HISG” in NTUST since 2007 to develop the technology for Energy Efficiency Buildings. The HISG can possess higher solar power generation and higher heat insulation function at the same time to get best energy efficiency for a building due to being able to produce renewable energy and save energy consumption simultaneously. HISG is already patented in Taiwan, China and Japan, with patents pending in USA, EU and UAE.  I have been interviewed twice on Discovery Channel and broadcast many times. There were already several HISG applications on buildings from 2009 all over the world.


I was a visiting scholar at Department of Architecture in Tokyo University Japan from June to September 2013 and from January 2014 to December 2015 I was a Marie Curie Fellow of University of Nottingham in UK to work on an EU project entitled “Development of Heat Insulation Solar Glass for Low Carbon Buildings, DHISGLCB”.
