This project is initiated in response to the call for key research initiatives of the Department of International Cooperation and Science Education (course code: SSS04) for  revolutionary changes, innovative teaching, learning strategies, creative assessment, accreditation, and certification of technical education and industrial-oriented courses (focus code: 401). Rapid advancements of the Internet of Things (IoT) have made it possible to transform automation systems in the manufacturing sector into smart manufacturing. Smart manufacturing starts from the basic work environment. Machinery, equipment, production processes, and even materials can be linked to the IoT with the help of sensors, achieving real-time data collection while allowing data to be uploaded to cloud for further analysis, exchange, and communication. Smart manufacturing not only improves production capacities and lower production costs, it is also capable of satisfying consumer demands for product diversification. These demands, however, have led to a shortage of technical professionals for smart manufacturing in various industries. In addition to training programs in conventional production technologies, other key issues for cultivating a new generation of technical professionals in the manufacturing sector include practical and technical skill training in smart conversions and measures and improving student ability to transfer acquired knowledge and techniques into the research and development of smart production techniques and capacities. Research objectives of this project are to promote the development of student abilities for computational thinking skills. Project activities include: developing learning materials for computational thinking skills；and establishment of performance indicators for computational thinking skills, development of CPS learning strategies, and validate the performance of learning methods for computational thinking skills. This project generated 2 SSCI journal papers, 3 conference paper, trained 4 master's and PhD students. All prescribed targets in actual practice, research, publications, and professional development have been achieved through the outcomes of this project.
