I have a question about obtaining techie work and hope some of you in the field can shed some light. My daughter, who only speaks English is in a computer engineering program at home. She wants to do a summer term here. I suspect she will not get to first base without being able to speak Chinese. Does anyone know if this is correct? Also, do companies hire students for short (3 month) periods so they can gain work experience in the field? She read somewhere in the Oriented website that it is possible to come over on a visitor’s visa and work as a “consultant”. Anyone know anything about that?
Her current capabilities are:
Basic circuit troubleshooting and analysis
– also Laplace and Fourier analysis
Network Administration – hardware and software
Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLD)
Very High-Spped Integrated Circuits (VHSIC)
VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL)
C programming/assembly programming
BJT and FET transistors, Op-amps
She’s been running her own server at home for a couple of years and has built a number of websites for herself and others.
Finally, how do women “fare” in the technical field in Taiwan? I imagine it is very male dominated.
Thanks in advance for any information you may be able to provide.
