Undergraduate Program

The Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University (NTUEE) has been ranked #1 in Taiwan since 1970 for admission of college students in natural science and engineering, and is long famous for its top-notch students and outstanding alumni. The department also possesses an outstanding faculty, among which there are 27 IEEE follows, 4 OSA fellows, 4 SPIE fellows, 1 ACM fellow and 1 Academician, etc. Each year, the department wins over 300 research grants/contracts and publishes more than 300 IEEE/SCI journal papers, an achievement comparable to top 10 EECS/ECE departments in the United States. In some research areas, the department holds top/dominant standing worldwide, such as microwave theories and technologies, integrated circuits and systems and electronic design automation etc., simply to name a few. With its long history of excellence in teaching, research and contributions/services to the society/industry, NTUEE has been one of the most competitive EE departments all over the world (within top 50 engineering and IT universities, US News and World Report 2008).

The program of NTUEE is one of the most comprehensive one among electrical-electronics-informatics-related departments over the world. The faculty expertise and courses cover 10 areas of EE, including Automatic Control, Power Systems/Power Electronics, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Electro-Optics, Electromagnetic Waves, Communications and Signal Processing, Integrated Circuits and Systems, Nano-electronics, and Electronic Design Automation. Thus, NTUEE undergraduate students have the opportunity to expose themselves to all different fields of EE.

The design of undergraduate coursework in NTUEE is first to provide students with broad and basic training in EE, such as electric circuits, electronics, electromagnetics, engineering mathematics, programming, and electronic circuit lab etc. After being equipped with enough basic knowledge, students can further explore/develop their own interest in specific subjects and professional areas by taking advantage a rich library of optional and advanced courses/labs in all different EE areas.

B.S. graduates from the department can further pursue their graduate/advanced studies in different EE areas within the NTU EECS College, by applying for the graduate programs of the EE department, Graduate Institute of Electronics Engineering, Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering, Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics, or Graduate Institute of Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics. Overall, these provide diverse channels for students to further develop their professional expertise and careers.
