Organisation profile

The Electrical Engineering department was founded in 1931 under the name of Tainan Technical College Electrical Division. After several minor organizational changes, the department was finally renamed as the Department of Electrical Engineering of National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, in 1956. The teaching curriculum was originally limited to undergraduate courses. However, in later years, the curriculum was expanded to include Master and Ph.D. programs, together with continuing-education classes for individuals in full-time employment. The department now comprises two institutes, namely the Microelectronics Institute and the Computer and Communication Engineering Institute. Taiwan is recognized as one of the world leaders in the high-tech electrical, electronic and information engineering fields. Consequently, the department is committed to building long-term R&D relationships with industry and academia, both in Taiwan and abroad, in order to support continued development in the field. To reach this goal, the teaching and research activities of the department are divided into eight main areas, namely Microelectronics, Electronic-Materials, Control, Electrical Power, VLSI/ CAD, Instrument Systems and Chips, Computer Science and Information Systems, Communication and Network, and Nano. The various groups are equipped with the very latest teaching and research facilities and offer students of all levels a flexible and diverse curriculum guaranteed to meet the particular needs of every student. In the eighty years since its founding, the department has built an enviable reputations as a center of excellent for teaching and research in the electrical engineering field. With a history of outstanding achievement in the academic and industrial sectors, and a strategy of continuous investment in cutting-edge research in the electrical, electronic and information engineering fields, the Department of Electrical Engineering of Nation Cheng Kung University is committed to becoming the institution of choice for leading academics, researchers and students not only from Taiwan, but also from all over the world.
