Overview: Departments(12) Researchers(272) Publications(7651) Projects(8118)
The mission of the College of Engineering is to provide an environment where education and research can complement and enhance one another. We strive to provide the highest quality of education by constantly improving course curricula, cultivating both fundamentals and specializations, promoting ethics and social responsibility, as well as enhancing international vision and leadership, to produce outstanding engineers and researchers who can tackle the demands of national infrastructure and technology advancement.
In research, we are dedicated to developing engineering-related fields, emphasizing both basic and applied research, and strengthening collaboration with industry to enhance both quantity and quality of research, in order for each of the College's academic fields to meet world-class standards as well as domestic leadership.
The research highlights of the College of Engineering include: Research and development in solar energy materials (Dep. Chemical Engineering and Dep. Mat. Sci. and Eng.), Innovative 2-D atomic materials (Dep. Mat. Sci. and Eng.), Innovative Experimental Techniques and Scientific Computational Methods for Geotechnical and Structural Engineering (Dep. Civil Engineering), The basic technology of transportation system electrification (Dep. Mechanical Engineering), Green Production Technology for the Future Chemical Engineering (Dep. Chemical Engineering), Wind Energy (Dep. Eng. Sci. & Ocean Eng.), Integrated Research on Key Technologies of Submarine (Dep. Eng. Sci. & Ocean Eng.), Molecular Modeling for the Development of New Materials with Novel Electrical, Optical and Biocompatible Properties (Dep. Mat. Sci. and Eng.), Synthesis of Nanoparticles and Novel Structures for Electro-Optical Applications (Dep. Mat. Sci. and Eng.), Monitoring, Control and Evaluation of Environmental Hormone (Inst. Environmental Eng.), Smart Sensor System for Future Life Applications (Inst. Applied Mechanics), Non-invasive Diagnostic Techniques for Cancers and Diabetic Foot Microcirculation (Inst. Applied Mechanics), Stem cells and regenerative medicine (Inst. Biomedical Eng.), Biomaterials in Artificial Organs and Drug Delivery System (Inst. Biomedical Eng.), Advanced Optoelectronic Polymers and Nanotechnology (Inst. Polymer Sci. and Eng.). In addition, we go hand in hand with the project of strengthening the basic technological development in the area of industries set by Executive Yuan and promote the electric urban transport system technology to develop electric vehicles.

The College of Engineering was established in 1945 with four departments. Through the great efforts of our faculty members and students, the college currently comprises five departments, six graduate institutes and two doctoral degree programs, with more than 5000 people. Our alumni have played an important role in the government, academic institutions and industry, contributing significantly to the society.
We aim to become one of the world’s top engineering colleges. With this in mind, in the aspect of teaching, we cultivate students with strong professional engineering knowledge, international vision and humanitarianism. We have implemented e-learning, the design-thinking-practice technique, and innovative teaching programs to develop the learning interest and potential of the students for solving challenging problems. In the aspect of research, we are dedicated to developing important engineering related fields and focusing on solving the challenges of the world, such as energy, sustainability, natural resources, health care and artificial intelligence. Through interdisciplinary collaboration, international team work and industrial collaboration, we have enhanced both quantity and quality of our research. For example, we have outstanding achievement in the fields of autonomous robots, intelligent driving system, renewable energy materials and components, water purification membranes, PM2.5 and carbon capture, earthquake engineering, 3D printing technology, biomaterials and drug delivery system. In recent years, the college has been ranked in the top 50 across all engineering related subjects, which reflects the leading position of our college in global academia.
Through funding for “the Top University” program from the Ministry of Education, our college has made a significant achievements in internationalization. Our graduate institutes of Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Applied Mechanics all provide a comprehensive English-taught master degree program, and around 150 international degree students are enrolled in the college. We also collaborate with top universities in Europe, the US and Japan to offer exchange student programs, dual degrees and double degrees, and each year we send and receive a total of 200 exchange students. In the near future, we plan to participate in two leagues – AOTULE (the Asia-Oceania Top University League on Engineering) and ADF (Asian Deans’ Forum). Based on collaboration with the member universities, we plan to strengthen dual/double degree programs, cooperative research projects, international conferences and co-operated research centers with strategic partner schools. We also encourage our faculty members and students to join significant academic organizations and competitions to enhancing the international visibility and academic status of the college.
We believe that our cultivated students can meet both the current need and the potential challenge from the rapid change of the world, making an important contribution to the society and the world.
