Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering

The Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering offers BS, MS, and PhD programs. The major fields of study involve solid mechanics and material science, design and manufacturing, thermo-fluid and energy engineering, mechatronics and automation control, and nano/micro systems.

The department is involved with developing industrial and technological innovations. Mechatronics, automation engineering, precision measuring and machining, and micro-electromechanical systems are also studied because these areas integrate electronic, electrical, information, computer, optoelectronic, and control technologies.

To enhance the depth and breadth of learning, the department collaborates with other related departments and offers non-degree cross-departmental programs, such as the Nano/Micro Technology Program, Mechatronics and Control Program, and the Ocean Energy Technology Program, which enable students to cultivate technology integration skills and cross-field expertise. The offered curriculum, in addition to the basic theories and concepts of the mechanical and electromechanical fields, is supplemented by various experimental courses and the study of specific topics. The graduate programs encompass related scientific and technical disciplines. Graduate students may also choose their own topics of interest to study.

In 2007, to increase the quality of education and to promote student employment competitiveness, the department obtained educational accreditation by the Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan (IEET) in engineering and technology for a term of 6 years. Further efforts will be devoted to obtaining a second term of IEET accreditation to enhance the academic reputation of the institute.
