The goal of the department is to cultivate technological and research talents in advanced electrical engineering disciplines. This mission is necessitated by the rapid development of the global electrical and information high-tech industry. This department is a dynamic science and technology establishment with immense R & D potential, and has recruited some of the most talented faculty staffs from outstanding universities around the world. Under the guidance of these excellent faculty, the students may acquire the trade of teaching and research skills hand-in-hand. The department actively participates in the research projects sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology, Institute for Information Industry, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, National Chung-Shan Institute of Science & Technology, and collaborated in many joint projects with many private industrial firms. On top of that we are also the organizer or co-organizer of many international and national academic conferences. Our alumni are involved in a wide range of career activities in semi-government utility industries such as Taipower Company and Chung-Hua Telecom, in education, academic research units and government agencies as well as in some of the major private high-tech firms engaging in the R&D in communications, computer networks, semiconductors and computer peripherals. The work performance of our alumni are well received and praised by their peers.
