The Department of Resources Engineering at National Cheng-Kung University was established to address the demand for the exploitation, utilization, reclamation, management and treatment of various resources. The Department is the only institution in Taiwan offering advanced education in resources engineering, including minerals, energy, soil and water resources. The breadth of training that the Department affords resource engineers permits entry into many exciting new fields of endeavor.
The Department of Resources Engineering was renamed in 1992 from the Department of Mineral and Petroleum Engineering. The former department was developed in 1974 from the Division of Mining and Geological Engineering in the Department of Mining and Metallurgical Engineering, which was the successor to the Department of Electrochemistry, founded in 1947. The Department offers a four-year program leading to a B.S. degree. Advanced study may then be pursued, if desired, to achieve an M.S. or Ph. D. degree. The Department offers an integrated system for advanced education and research in resources engineering. For students who are interested in resources engineering, the National Cheng-Kung University Department of Resources Engineering is the best choice.
