The Department of Electrical Engineering was founded in 1963. The mission of the department is to provide EE undergraduate students with a fundamental understanding of electrical engineering built on a foundation of physical science, mathematics, computing, and technology. Graduates of the undergraduate program are expected to have the basic experimental, design, and communication skills to be prepared for continued study at the graduate level or for the practice of engineerings. The electrical engineering curriculum offers a number of specialization areas at the undergraduate level, including microelectronics, VLSI, control systems, power systems, computer networking and security, computer architecture and digital systems, electromagnetics, communications and signal processing, and electro-optical Engineering.
The graduate program offers degrees leading to either a M.S. or Ph.D. in EE, providing students with an opportunity to pursue advanced coursework, in-depth training, and research in several fields. The undergraduate and graduate programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Criteria of IEET (Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan Accreditation Council).
