The total number of students is 651.

   The department’s goal is to train students to become skilled professionals in the field of industrial engineering and management science. In line with the need for national industrial development, the department cultivates students with the ability to optimize the use of resources such as manpower, material, equipment, capital and information. The department has established a professional service center to provide professional services, seminars and training courses for local industries to enrich academic-industry interactions. The department boasts to have great faculties, equipments, and curricula, and is actively devoted to the education of industrial engineering and management so as to contribute to the development of Taiwan’s industry.

Department Philosophy

   The department emphasizes on utilizing the most up-to-date knowledge for its teaching and research endeavors. Subject matters presented such as systematic industrial management, computerization and automation methodologies, provide students with a variety of skills in the field of industrial engineering and management.

   The courses offered complement traditional theoretical engineering training with real world practical applications, providing students with a rich set of job skills. The department’s research, concurrent with the mission of a polytechnic university, is geared towards the current needs of industries, which often results in joint research and multi-discipline/cooperative research projects with industries.

   In addition, in order to aid the development of the students’ global-view and foreign language skills, the department has instituted the following programs:

  • In 1999, an international student exchange program with the California Polytechnic State University was established. Each year two students are selected to study at California Polytechnic State University for a one-year period. So far, a total of seven students have been through this exchange program. In the future, the department will continue to expand international education programs such as this one.
  • In addition to strengthening student’s foreign language skills, with the intention of facilitating the department’s international cooperative education programs, two professional courses are taught in English each semester.

   The department plans to launch a Ph.D. program in the near future, in order to provide Taiwan with researches of the highest caliber in the field of industrial engineering and management.
