Organization profile

Organisation profile

The original purpose of founding the Department was to incubate talented researchers in the field of material science, including material design, manufacturing and research. The history of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering could be traced back to the former Department of Electrochemistry followed by the Department of Mining & Metallurgy, the Department of Metallurgy & Materials Engineering, and the Department of Materials Engineering. It was then renamed and settled as the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in 1992. In the academic year of 2012, our Department was integrated with the School of Nanotechnology and Micro-System Engineering in the College of Engineering to expand our faculty members and research areas. Over the years, owing to the hard work of faculty members and the students, our researches and accomplishments have always been in the top tier in material science field in Taiwan. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering has good learning environment and comprehensive faculty members. Our research fields include advanced materials, metal materials, ceramic materials, polymer materials, composite materials, optoelectronic and electronic materials, biomedical materials, energy materials, magnetic materials, high-temperature superconducting materials, surface treatment technologies, advanced characterization technologies, and computer-aid material science.
