College of Engineering


Persistent and precise striving for excellence

Introduction

Introduction


Ever since the founding of the Chung Yuan Christian Science and Engineering College in 1955, two engineering departments, Chemical Engineering and Civil Engineering, were established. And the engineering programs have been the largest component in University teaching as well as in research. In 1980, the Chung Yuan Christian SE College became a University and College of Engineering grew up to have nine departments until August 2005 and four departments spun off to be College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EE&CS). Now, the College of Engineering comprises five departments including Department of Chemical Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Biomedical Engineering and Department of Bioenvironmental Engineering. Except for the newly established (on August 1, 2004) Bioenvironmental Engineering Department, the others have graduate programs in both master`s degree and a Ph.D. degree. Department of Chemical Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, and Department of Biomedical Engineering also have the evening executive master`s programs available for those who are working in the industry. In addition, COE is the first college in Taiwan to have its departments and graduate schools undergone engineering education accreditation by the Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan (IEET), and received accreditation certificate. More recently, all five departments have initiated DIGS program for foreign students and multi-channels in international exchange, short communication as well as summer camp learning, etc..

Key Features

College of Engineering has established the following research centers with solid, balanced, professional preparation in practice as well as in theory. These R/D centers include Membrane Technology, Environmental Technology,Hazard Mitigation and Rescue Technology,Mechatronic Equipments,Mold and Molding Technology,Nano Bioengineering,Biomedical Micro-device Technology support Execution Operation Center for Industry-Academia Cooperation, founded in incubating high-technology enterprises to expand cooperation as well as service between industries and academia. Along with the establishments of these centers, the balanced development in theory and applied research is achieved and the quality of academic research is thus improved in all five departments of COE through consulting and cooperation to upgrade the industries’ maturity, which leads the departments to outstanding academic reputation as well as to recruit prominent researchers. Additionally, two R/D centers have consecutively obtained the Academic Industrial Economic Contribution Reward of Ministry of Economic Affairs while Membrane Technology R/D center extraordinarily receives it’s profound honor and has been known worldwide under The Fifty Billion Project in Five Years of Ministry Of Education.

FutureProspects

Educated under "reverence to God, love for country, respect for work and fellowmen, and advocating simplicity" and among the educational philosophy "We respect the dignity of nature and of humanity, and we seek to promote harmony between the Creator, oneself, all other human beings", COE is thus encouraged to continue the cultivation of such outstanding pragmatic engineering talents to undergraduates and graduates and enrich them with the courses design through professional curriculums, General Education, hands-on practice experience and life attentive culture. Afterwards, by the International Engineering Education Accreditation process, COE accomplishes its goal in training students with international vision and competency, professionalism, career- esteem, people-friendly working attitude as well as life-concern sympathy into modern engineer.
