The educational mission of this faculty is to train engineers who can develop and utilize the products of engineering to create a better environment for both human society and the natural world. To achieve this, students are provided with deep specialized knowledge as well as a broad-based general education that permit them to make autonomous, practical contributions to society.
This department nurtures engineers and researchers who support "manufacturing". Mechanical engineering is the backbone of engineering, and covers a broad scope including environment/energy, automobile/aircraft, simulation, new materials, welfare/ medicine and robots. Students acquire the ability to apply physical and mathematical knowledge on mechanically-related phenomena to improving performance, developing new functions and so forth.
This department equips students with the core academic skills required to engage with new technologies in electrical, electronics and information engineering on an ongoing basis. Students develop the integrative capacity to apply the latest technologies to innovative production that combines different fields in various ways, including electrical/electronic technologies, electrical/information technologies, and electronic/information technologies.
This department fosters human resources who can tackle contemporary social issues such as energy, the environment, and medical care. Divided into the three fields of Materials and Nanoscience, Vital Functions, and Environment and Energy, the curriculum covers the broad range of chemistry from life processes to artificial materials. Research fields include environmental catalysts, pharmaceuticals, and fuel cells.
This department offers educational and research programs that aim to create information systems that connect people with society and industry. Students are trained to acquire a broad base of knowledge, from basic science to sociology and culture, and exposed to the leading edge of engineering technologies so that they can become engineers and researchers with the mathematical and developmental capacity necessary to develop information systems based on information and communication technology.
Students of this department are trained to be managing engineers capable of designing, operating, and formulating improvements for work models extending from process design through logistics to service delivery. The curriculum is built on traditional fields such as quality, cost, and production management, and ergonomics, with the addition of contemporary subjects such as automation, environmental management, computer-aided design, and Taguchi Methods. The curriculum also has several distinctive features that help cultivate students’ practical abilities. These include the emphasis on laboratory and field work using an extensive range of apparatus, the inclusion of English for Engineering, Chinese for Engineering, and field study of foreign languages as specialized subjects in preparation for globalization, and the use of ERP systems (made by SAP), which are indispensable for the running of modern-day corporations.
Students in this department acquire the architectural technologies that create ideal relationships between people, space, and the environment. They graduate as specialists in a wide range of architectural fields, including conceptual design, structural design, building service design, construction, and management. The department consists of the following three courses: Architectural Environment Course, which focuses on the science and engineering aspects of the built environment and building services; Architectural Structure Course, which focuses on structural theories, construction method, and disaster prevention; and Architectural Design Course, which focuses on history, architectural and urban design.
Science and technology have been developing together with increasing integration and fusion. It is becoming increasingly difficult to build a required product or system based on expertise in one field alone. Society needs a new generation of experts in coordinated engineering—namely, "engineering generalists" capable of addressing the growing complexity and diversity of lifestyle and social demands, combining various technologies in an effective manner, and formulating real-life solutions. The Coordinated Engineering Program is designed to foster this new generation.
