Organisation profile

Founded in 1931, the College of Engineering (COE) of National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) has been the cornerstone of NCKU for almost 90 years. The COE has as its mission the development of world-class professional engineers with profound theoretical knowledge, innovative technical skills, outstanding confidence and acumen, and a broad international perspective. Over the years, the COE has nurtured numerous talented engineers, who have gone on to make tremendous contributions in their chosen fields. The COE has gained an enviable reputation among its peer institutions for its excellence in research and teaching, and is regarded as one of the leading engineering colleges in the world. The COE consists of twelve academic departments, two independent institutes, one Engineering Management Graduate Program, six International Degree Programs (International Bachelor Degree Program on Energy, International Master Degree Program on Energy, International Doctoral Degree Program on Energy Engineering, International Curriculum for Advanced Materials Program (iCAMP), International Master Program of Natural Hazards Mitigation and Management, and Master of International Institute of Medical Device Innovation (MDI)), and one Center for Innovative Engineering Education (CIEE).The 320-member faculty of the COE comprises engineers and scholars, all of whom are widely recognized in their fields. The COE additionally employs 150 highly-qualified adjunct faculty members. The total student enrollment, including both undergraduate and graduate students, is around 7,000, of which around 870 are presently international students, while 300 are exchange students. COE alumni are renowned for their outstanding professional skills and work attitude, and have long garnered critical acclaim from academia and industry alike. The COE is dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence and outstanding research advancements. The engineering and materials science programs are consistently ranked among the top 1% of the world’s universities. Moreover, the U.S. News & World Report in 2017 ranked NCKU 43th on their "Best Global Universities for Engineering" list. The COE is internationally recognized as an elite engineering school and is one of the top public institutions in Taiwan.With its equal emphasis on theory and practice, and commitment toward synchronization between localization and globalization, the COE provides a rich and innovative environment for engineering education and the nurturing of interdisciplinary research talents. The excellence of the academic programs offered by the COE has been formally recognized by the Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan (IEET). Furthermore, the COE is renowned for its efforts in promoting industry-academic cooperation, advancing industry research, creating industry value, facilitating the national development of innovative industry, forcifying international collaboration, expanding global movement, implementing local requirements, and enhancing indigenous valuation. The COE is unswerving in its role as a world-class college with a commitment toward cultivating engineers capable of making outstanding contributions on both the national and the international stage.
