Organisation profile

The Department traced its root back to 1931. The original institution, Department of Applied Chemistry of Tainan Technical College, was founded by the Japanese authority. After the Restoration of Taiwan, it was reorganized and officially renamed as Department of Chemical Engineering in 1947. ChE has offered the Bachelor of Science degree since its establishment. Graduate studies including Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees were initiated in 1964 and 1970, respectively. Faculty There are currently 38 faculty members in our department, including 29 professors, 3 associate professors, 5 assistant professors and 1 lecturer. (2017 Otc.) Research Our faculty members are active in various research areas. The vigorous research program is reflected by its outstanding outcomes. Each year, the faculty members publish more than one hundred research papers in renowned journals. They also obtain many patents and offer technology transfer to local industries. The major research topics in the department can be roughly categorized into four fields:Optoelectronic materials and nanotechnology, Polymer materials and engineering, Energy technology and process system engineering, and Biotechnology and biochemical engineering.
