Bangkok, Thailand, Apr 30, 2022- Delta Thailand hosted 10 automation engineering student Thai teams from top universities in Thailand to join a kickoff event for the 8th Delta International Smart & Green Manufacturing Contest, also known as the Delta Cup.
At the kickoff ceremony at Delta Thailand’s head office, Mr. Alan Chou, Delta Industrial Automation SEA Senior Director, welcomed the Thai participants to this year’s contest and presented certificates to three Thai teams who won the Delta Cup competition last year. The 2021 winning teams presented their projects and shared their experiences with this year’s participants.
In 2022, the Delta Cup theme is “Seeking Low-carbon Manufacturing Talents” and offers three tracks: “Energy-saving Machine”, “Green Manufacturing” and “Green Living”. Delta Electronics Group organizes the annual competition to help local students develop innovative automation, smart manufacturing solutions and green technology applications.
Every year, Delta Thailand sponsors Delta Cup teams from Thailand, India and Vietnam to bring their original automation projects to compete against elite student teams from Taiwan, China and Europe in China. Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, last year’s Delta Cup was held virtually for the first time.
The Delta Cup aims to inspire young local talents to develop practical automation applications and leverage the latest technology to improve their design, programming, and debugging skills. Contest projects integrate theory with practice to add value to industry and impact society.
Since 2016, Delta Thailand sponsored prize-winning teams from Thailand’s Chulalongkorn University, Kasetsart University, King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) and King Mongkut’s University of Technology campuses in North Bangkok (KMUTNB) and in Thonburi (KMUTT).
Delta offers training and sponsorship to Thai teams in the Delta Automation Academy, Delta Automation Labs and Delta Cup as part of its commitment to develop society and accelerate smart manufacturing development aligned with the Thailand 4.0 policy.
