工學院Point02| History |

The college of Engineering was established in 1989. It now has three departments and one independent graduate institute, listed here in the order of their establishment. They are Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering (1953) with Ph.D. program, Systems Engineering and Naval Architecture (1959) with Ph.D. program, Harbor and River Engineering (1960) with Ph.D. program and the Institute of Materials Engineering(1993) with Ph.D. program. The departments were established in the 1950s and have significantly contributed to the engineering and marine education in Taiwan.  Besides, we have Nano/Micro Technology Program, Mechatronics and Control Program, Doctoral Degree Program in Marine Engineering Technology , and Bachelor's Degree Program in Ocean Engineering Technology .  The college employs 76 full-time faculty members in 2016. In the academic year 2016, we have 1405 students, 1064 undergraduates, and 341 graduate students (274 in Master's and 67 in Ph.D. programs).

Point02| Educational Goals (Objectives ) |

The College of Engineering provides students with a rich variety of fundamental engineering disciplines, and advanced engineering knowledge in dealing the with modern day’s complex problems. In addition, the College emphasizes the integration of knowledge and technology in the field of system engineering and naval architecture, harbor and river engineering, mechanical and mechatronie engineering, and materials engineering. To respond to the changing nature of the engineering enterprise, the college has developed four programs. These programs include Mechatronics and Control Program, Nano/micro Technology Program, Doctoral Degree Program in Marine Engineering Technology , and Bachelor's Degree Program in Ocean Engineering Technology, which are open to all students at NTOU, and aim to educate students to be more competitive in the ever-changing society. The learning process emphasizes theoretical, practical, interdisciplinary training and leadership.
