The Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering was founded in 1969, placing it among the earliest programs of computer science and engineering in Taiwan. Our programs cover all aspects of computer science, information engineering, software applications, and computer theory. The department also offers elective courses in areas, which adapt to the continuing advances in technology, computer networking, multimedia computing, and telecommunication. Research labs have been established for faculties and graduate students involved in a wide range of research projects, supported by the university as well as government funding agencies. We are located in Tamsui, the campus is only a 40-minute drive from downtown Taipei.
Internationalization is one of the goals of our department. Starting in 2000, several graduate courses have been conducted in English. Our department is to admit international graduate students, under the permission of the Ministry of Education and Tamkang University. In 2014, a new English-taught Master’s Program is built.
In the past few years, the department faculties have carried out several joint research projects with partners in Hong Kong, Japan, China, Russia, Canada, and other countries. In addition, our faculty members frequently travel overseas to share and exchange professional expertise and experiences with researchers from other countries.
Moreover, the department also regularly hosts international conferences/workshops and invites world-renowned scholars to provide esteemed lectures. Students may also choose to apply for overseas exchange programs to further broaden their horizons and enhance their international experience.
Current, we still work hard to build up the department’s reputation in the international community.
There are over 10,000 alumni that serve in important occupations including government, academia, and industrial positions. Members of the TKU CSIE alumni association are also extremely influential in the IT industry of Taiwan.
