The optoelectronic emphasis is clearly illustrated by the research and curriculum design of the department. The undergraduate program includes specialized required courses on basic physics, holistic education on humanities, and other elective courses. The department offers elective courses worthy of approximately 100 credits every semester, 70 percent of which are related to Optoelectronic Physics. With this focus and other training on Electronic Engineering, Information Engineering, and Chemistry, the Department of Physics is an optimal environment where students interested in optoelectronic physic can find abundant learning resources to further pursue their studies and research.

There are currently 16 full-time and 8 adjunct professors in the department. Most of the professors specialize in optoelectronics, including nanomaterials, photoelectric components, optic fibers, thin films, optical spectrums, and atomic physics. In addition, the research of the professors has delivered outstanding results and cultivated the four strengths of the department – physics computing, biophotonics, optoelectronics, and thin-film and materials.

The department has signed a cooperative agreement with Academia Sinica Institute of Physics to offer joint advisement on the theses of graduate students. In addition, the department has also worked on research projects and teaching with various institutions, such as KEK, UC Berkley, and the University of Bradley. Approximately 75 percent of department graduates continue to pursue further studies either in Taiwan or abroad, and around 25 percent of the graduates have received doctoral degrees. Meanwhile, the other graduates have entered professions ranging from education to business. The department looks forward to cultivating more outstanding professionals.
