Li-Yuan Chen is focusing on completing the research of wireless control motors and is more interested in in-depth study in areas related to aircraft such as heat flow and automatic control. The faculty in Engineering College pointed out that Li-Yuan Chen was exempted from applying for student loans because he successively received several scholarships such as the Freshman and Presidential Award during his college years, and this scholarship will be used as a tuition for his future master's and doctoral studies.

The College of Engineering of CCU pointed out that the professors of the Department of Mechanical Engineering have had close relationship with local enterprises such as Far East Machinery company, Factory Automation Technology company, FEMCO Steel Technology and other local enterprises for many years. In addition to several industry-academy cooperation projects, they also visit those local enterprises to help solve the machine operation problems, and implement the university social responsibility (USR).
