Department of Mechanical Engineering focuses on educating students to excel in the mechanical engineering profession by integrating the hands-on practice with fundamental theories. Through organized and extensive training, the students will be the leading members of mechanical design, manufacturing, management, quality control, and control professional fields. The training is focused on Mechatronics technology and Precision Manufacturing technology. We combine excellence in education and research with service to society.
♦ Grade A level of assessment, Ministry of Education
♦ ABET-Accredited programs in BS/MS, IEET (Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan, member of Washington Accord)
♦ We have 21 full-time teachers (16 PhDs) and all are with qualifications above assistant professors. Furthermore, we also continuously search for experienced and qualified engineers and managers from the Hsinchu Science and Industrial Park and the Industrial Technology Research Institute to teach the elective courses in our department. With their industrial experience, the students have opportunities to learn the updated knowledge with practical applications during the lessons.
♦ There are total twenty-two laboratories that are facilitated with devices for experiments covering various professional training fields. The precision manufacturing technology covers from CAD/CAM/CAE to the precision manufacturing equipment for laser manufacturing/ reverse engineering/ rapid prototyping/ CNC/ vibration and acoustic study/ optical metrology/ experimental stress analysis laboratories, and the mechatronics technology covers equipment from the PLC/ microprocessor/ imaging processing/ robotics/ sensors and measurement/ dynamic testing machines/ mechatronics laboratories. They consist of a completed training facility for the students.
♦ In order to establish teaching and research distinctiveness, MUST ME has aggressively involved in the industry-academia collaboration. The amount of collaboration project collects up to NT$ 1,1433,000 (US$381,110 ) during the first six months of 2017.
Method of Admission:
♦ Admission application
♦ Screening test under recommendation
♦ University entrance examination
♦ Admission based on excellence technique performance
♦ The fundamental courses focus on the basic disciplines of mechanical engineering theories and practical applications. The advanced courses provide a bridge to fulfill the requirements between the school and the Hsinchu Science and Industrial Park, especially in the automation and technology of precision manufacturing.
♦ The department compulsory courses: By combing the laboratorial practices and the lessons learning, the students are able to implement their knowledge onto the school projects; therefore, the teaching qualities are further improved.
♦ The elective courses: Various elective courses oriented to meet the needs of industry are selected by the course planning committee. Some courses such as CAE, reverse engineering, laser applications and technologies, micro-machining, image processing, automation system designs, semiconductor materials, optimal designs, reliability analysis of systems, etc. are typical courses on a regular basis.
Placement of Graduates:
♦ Graduate school: continue higher education in the related fields such as mechanical engineering, mechatronics, industrial engineering and management, medical engineering, etc.
♦ Work: Hsinchu County hold several high-tech industrial and science parks that provide numerous working opportunities for the graduated students in various fields such as manufacturing of semiconductors, opto-electronic devices, automation of equipment, design of mechatronics systems, mechanical design, etc.
