The Department of Mechanical Engineering was founded in 1963. The rapid development of technology leads industry and academia to the era of professional services and teamwork. Hence, engineers with specialty knowledge and teamwork concepts are highly demanded in job markets. In accordance with the demand, Tatung ME offers B.S. degree in two sub divisions, Electro-Mechanical Division (EMD) and Precision Mechanical Division (PMD), for students to learn more specialized skills and knowledge. The EMD focuses on developing student abilities in applying mechanical engineering technology to the field of electronic industry, such as mechatronic control system, electronic firmware, digital system, robot vision, electronic cooling, etc. The PMD focuses on cultivating the abilities of system integration and design of our students, educating them to develop and design processing facilities of the precision industry, and enhancing their abilities for engineering analysis and mechanical design. The energy issue and semiconductor engineering present a more practical option for the career of PMD students.
The graduate program offers degree leading to either M.S. or Ph.D., providing students to pursue advanced coursework, in-depth training and research. Tatung ME ranked 14th (including all public and private universities in Taiwan) based on the "Best Graduate School of Taiwan" surveyed by Cheers Magazine in 2008.
