The Department of Electrical Engineering of National Taiwan University (NTUEE) is worldwide recognized as the prestigious school of electrical engineering education with respect to its versatile courses, highly competitive student admission, outstanding alumni, and world class faculty research achievements. The research field of NTUEE covers automatic control, biomedical engineering, communication and signal processing, computer science, electromagnetic waves, electronic design automation, integrated circuits and systems, nano-electronics, photonics and optoelectronics, and power systems/ power electronics engineering. The mission of NTUEE is to provide an inspiring education environment for fostering top students who can contribute to the society with solid expertise and leadership in engineering.
The EE Department currently hosts 123 full-time and 7 adjunct faculty members, among them many have received prestigious international recognitions including 33 IEEE Fellows, 1 ACM Fellow, and 5 OSA Fellows. In addition to the above international awards, five are awarded the National Professorship and eleven have won the Award for Distinguished Academic Contribution in Engineering by the Ministry of Education, R.O.C.
The Department of Electrical Engineering has developed a strong curriculum providing students with broad basic knowledge on which a solid career in Electrical Engineering can be built. In addition, the committee also reviews and revises this curriculum regularly to reflect the ever-changing needs of the industry and the society.
NTUEE offers undergraduate and graduate programs, leading to the degrees of Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The undergraduate program prepares the students for a career in various fields of electrical engineering as well as for further study. The undergraduate students can flexibly select their studies in any field by their interests and capabilities. Within the EE areas, the Graduate Institute of Electrical Engineering, the Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics, the Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering, the Graduate Institute of Electronics Engineering, and the Graduate Institute of Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics offer graduate programs that aim to prepare the students for a career in teaching and/or research. The graduate students must choose one of the ten fields to perform their research.
Taiwan is worldly renowned for its ICT and high-tech industry. Representing the most promising forces in academy in Taiwan, NTUEE has long been tightly connected with the industry to perform the cutting edge research. Research centers on campus, such as NTU System on Chip Center, TSMC-NTU Research Center, Taiwan Electromagnetic Industry-Academia Consortium, International Center of Excellence in Intelligent Robotics and Automation Research (in collaboration with CNRS, UPMC, and INRIA, France) and MEDIATEK-NTU Advanced Research Center, have been established to perform the most efficient connection between academic research and industrial demands. With such first-hand skills and knowledge on the industry needs, NTUEE students have always been the top choices for industry enterprises. Numerous companies would initiate career fairs to recruit NTUEE students just prior to their graduation.
The members of EE Department at NTU commit themselves to maintaining a leading role in different areas in industry and in academia, and the department has made its long-term planning in recruiting faculty members, strengthening facilities and budget, and defining research directions. The main objective is to promote it gradually to become an internationally recognized institution of applied science and advanced technology. The Department is ranked the 15th place in the 2015 QS World University Rankings by Subject.http://www.ee.ntu.edu.tw/
