Introduction

   National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT) is one of the first few colleges funded in Taiwan nearly 100 years ago. The NTUT’s Electrical Engineering program, one of the first kind established in Taiwan, was formed in 1912.
   Today, the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) is home to four departments, 100 faculty members, and more than 2,700 students. About one quarter of all NTUT students are enrolled in this College.
   The four academic departments under this college are Departments of Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Information Engineering, and Electro-Optical Engineering. Each of them offers Ph.D., Master of Science (MS), and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees.
   We emphasize quality in teaching and research. All our undergraduate and graduate programs will soon be accredited by the Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan (IEET), recognized by the Washington Accord. The s e programs provide students knowledge of fundamental principles and innovative technologies through a rigorous curriculum of theory and applications.
   The graduate program has over 140 Ph.D. students and about 700 Master students in total. EECS is a broad and expanding field. We have strong research and industrial programs. The faculty members are actively developing technologies ranging from devices to systems, from software to hardware, and from algorithms to implementation.
   In addition, we have a very strong tie to the industry. NTUT is one of the leading technical universities in Taiwan. A number of the school alumni become entrepreneurs in Taiwan information technology and electric-related engineering industry. This, loyal alumni, is an important and unique factor supporting the success and growth of this institute.

College Objectives

  • To provide students with a sound and solid knowledge in the professional disciplines of electrical engineering and computer science, along with the required supporting knowledge of mathematics, science, and liberal education.

  • To equip students with the skills needed in designing experimental projects, solving problems, and organizing and presenting information effectively.

  • To train our students to be future leaders in academia, government, and industry with a deep awareness of ethical responsibilities to our profession and to society.

  • To emphasize multidisciplinary and international activities in both teaching and research.

  • To maintain a friendly, supportive and diverse environment so as to help our students, faculty and staff to achieve their best.

Academic Programs

   The degree programs offered are mainly the 4-year Bachelor of Science (BS), Master of Science (MS), and Doctoral programs. The applicant must apply for one of following four majors (departments): Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering (Graduate Institute of Computer and Communication Engineering), Electro-Optical engineering, and Computer Science and Information Engineering.
   There are specific Master’s Programs for On-the-Job Students. The applicants must meet the working experience and other requirements imposed on these programs. The Electrical Engineering and Electronic Engineering Departments also offer Two-Year Continuing Education Programs. In addition, there is an Undergraduate Honors Program affiliated to the EECS College. The students enrolled in this program can select any of the four departments as their majors for graduation. A specific Gambian Information Technology Elite Program is designed for training the undergraduates from the Republic of Gambia.

International Program

  • NTUT has been actively recruiting international students in recent years. Currently the international student population is over 160. Chinese language and Taiwanese culture courses are offered with contents specifically tailored to the overseas students. The University provides dormitory rooms to every foreign student and scholarships are generally available for academically qualified students.
  • Courses in the Gambian IT Program are Englishlectured. Most departments accept international students and offer professional courses in English when requested. The CSIE Department graduate student program is one of them.

History

1911 The Industrial School of the Japanese Viceroy's Office was established at the current address of National Taipei University of Technology. That is one of the oldest industrial schools in Taiwan.
1945 Taiwan was liberated from the Japanese Occupation, and State Taipei School of Industry was renamed Provincial Taipei Vocational School of Industry.
1948 Provincial Taipei Industrial Vocational School was upgraded to be Provincial Taipei Institute of Technology, offering five-year electrical engineering program.
1953 A three-year program was established, admitting senior high school graduates to study electrical engineering.
1961 A two-year program was established, admitting vocational school graduates to study electrical engineering.
1994 NTUT was upgraded to be National Taipei Institute of Technology with 4- and 2-year programs. The two-year program admitted junior college graduates while the four-year program admitted graduates from senior high school and vocational school. The departments awards bachelor degree to graduates.
1996 the Institute of Mechatronic Engineering was found by the join efforts of the Department of Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering department.
1997 National Taipei Institute of Technology was renamed National Taipei University of Technology.
1998 The 5-year program ceased to recruit student.
1999 College of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering was established.
2006 College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was established. 4 Departments and 4 Graduate Institutes are transferred from College of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering to the new College, and Dr. H. M. Hang was assigned as the first Dean.

Present

  • NTUT has an excellent reputation on her education quality. According to a survey conducted annually among major corporations in Taiwan, in each of the past ten years, NTUT has stood out from more than 160 universities in Taiwan and was ranked second to ninth of the best universities cultivating first-rated talents.

  • To achieve the goal of integrating theoretical knowledge and practical applications, every undergraduate student in this College is required to do a Senior Project and every graduate student has to do a Master or Doctoral thesis.

  • The R&D activities of this College focus on theory and on practice as well. The research expenditures of the College were over NT$80 million in 2006 and 2007 and increase at the rate of about 15% annually.

  • The Sunshine-Fund Foundation in the university supports paper publications, international conferences, and outstanding research works.

  • College Distinguished Teaching Award and College Distinguished Research Award granted annually are aiming at promoting outstanding teaching and research.
