The collaboration is led by Dr. Wei-Cheng Wang, the Dean of the Department of Mathematics at NTHU. His research focuses on calculus, numerical analysis, and hydromechanics. Through these courses, the academic committee helps mathematics and finance-majored students develop 4 core abilities: 1) advance mathematical knowledge 2) discover, analyze and solve problems 3) apply mathematical concepts in other subjects 4) use mathematics for logical reasoning.
RiskVal’s CEO Jordan Hu is a National Tsing Hua University alumnus, having earned a degree in applied math from the university in 1984. Inspired by the summer courses at the NTHU, Jordan pursued his Master's degree in computer science at New Jersey Institute of Technology and launched his career in finance. In Mr. Hu's own words: “If it was not for the summer courses and rigorous quantitative training at NTHU, I would not dare to have the epiphany of combining computer science with mathematics. Further, landing a career in the fixed income trading company. Therefore, I would like to contribute my knowledge and my experience to inspire the young generation in NTHU.”
NTHU and RiskVal are looking forward to many years of fruitful collaboration and envision developing new educational projects throughout the life of the alliance.
