The College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) includes four departments: Department of Electronics Engineering, Department of Photonics, Department of Electrical Engineering, and Department of Computer Science. All these four departments offer bachelor, master and Ph. D programs, and the Institute of Electro-Optical Engineering offers master and Ph. D programs. In addition, Nano Facility Center (NFC), Brain Research Center (BRC), Center for Nano Science and Technology, Center for Science Technology and Society (STS), Computer Vision Research Center, and Taiwan Information Security Center at NCTU (TWISC@NCTU) are in this college to promote advanced researches in the related areas.
Since the education and research programs started in1958, this college has been making very important contributions to high-technology industries in Taiwan. In order to meet the needs of advanced education and to create a life-long learning environment for engineers and scientists in the related areas, a committee was organized from the whole college in early 1998 to plan and design this degree program, and this program began in 1999. This program is designed for those who have full-time jobs. At the present stage, the program only offers master degrees. But in the near future, the complete program for Ph. D degrees will also be offered.
2. Subprograms and Faculty
The Degree Program of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science includes four subprograms: (1) Degree Programs of Electronics and Electro-Optical Engineering, (2) Degree Programs of Electrical and Control Engineering, (3) Degree Programs of Communication Engineering, and (4) Degree Programs of Computer Science. The Department of Electronics Engineering and the Institute of Electro-Optical Engineering, the Department of Electrical and Control Engineering, the Department of Communication Engineering, and the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering and the Department of Computer and Information Science are in charge of these four subprograms, respectively. The whole college has 182 faculty members to support this program. The details about faculty are described in each individual department and institute.
3. Laboratories and Facilities
National Chiao Tung University has excellent laboratories and facilities, especially in EECS areas. The students in this program can fully utilize all these laboratories and facilities.
4. Research Areas
The research areas are the same as those in the whole college including five departments and one graduate institute. The details are described in the departments and institutes of the college.
