Department of Electrical Engineering







The Department aims to teacher professional knowledge of electrical engineering to cultivate talents for the design, manufacturing, construction, application and maintenance relevant to electrical engineering. For meeting the requirements of technology development and demand for manpower, the Department has focused on its key development areas based on the combination of its teachers, equipment and in considerations of the trend of future development. “Electrical energy technique”, “electromechanical control” and “computer application” are the Department’s key development areas. Students are expected to choose based on their own interests in the learning process, and not only develop knowledge in the technical field, but also integrate the theories and skills to respond to changeable and pluralistic society.

The Goal

1.Cultivate students to become electrical design engineers with abilities for professional knowledge, logical reasoning, system integration and innovative research and development.

2.For the needs of the country’s economic development and based on regional industrial characteristics, cultivate students to become high- and middle-level electrical engineering personnel required in the industry and enhance the employment competitiveness of students.

3.Cultivate students to possess communication skills, work as a team and have international perspectives and the concept of lifelong learning.

4.Emphasize general education, develop sound personality and ethics and cultivate students to care for the society and have humanistic literacy.


For the government’s “Sustainable Energy Policy” to promote the energy conservation and carbon reduction policy and the core technology development of Industry 4.0, a research report issued by the MIC, Institute for Information Industry points out that wireless broadband and relevant services, digital life, health care, green industry, IoT, Cloud, artificial intelligence and big data analysis will be the emerging industries with great potential. The Department has focused on its key development areas: Electrical energy, electromechanical control and computer application. It has also created research teams based on specialties of teachers to conduct research on relevant technologies, and has actively developed its cooperation relationship with regional industries to enhance academic performance. The development characteristics of the Department have been gradually established. The characteristics of each research team and its field are as follows:

(1) Electrical Energy: To cooperate with the development of the national energy policy and cultivate students to become the talents needed for the development of electrical energy technology, and in response to rising prices of crude oil in the recent years, the Department is committed to the promotion of renewable energy education, and the establishment of solar photovoltaic power generation system and wind power generation system. Besides, in view of the importance of energy conservation, the Department has also established the campus power monitoring and power management system and further set up the Electric Energy Control and Management Laboratory. Power electronics technology is the core of electrical energy conversion technology, and the Department has conducted research in the field for many years and has obtained abundant research results. For implementation and promotion of the skills, the space used to practice power electronics skills has been established. To integrate the research and teaching of the Department in the field of multi-renewable energy development and serve the renewable energy industry, this program integrates and develops the green renewable power generation technology, the advanced power storage technology and high-efficiency power control and parallel network, which are applicable to the central region and are the three major distributed generation technologies for multi-renewable energy. A laboratory for distributed generation and dispatch of multi-renewable energy has also established.

(2) Electromechanical control: Entities in the central region are mainly small and medium enterprises, some of which are electromechanical control companies. Those manufacturers of sports equipment, process control and frequency converters, suppliers of programming logical controllers and companies of controller design also have cooperation relationship with the Department for a long time. In the recent years, the technology improvement of wireless sensor networks and the wide application of chip design have shown that electromechanical control should be developed toward the cross-disciplinary combination of research and technology. Electromechanical control is combined with the original resources in the laboratories. Motor drive control, sensing and data access control technology and wireless sensor technology network are the key development direction in the electromechanical control program. Biomedical sensor and medical aids and wireless networks, combined with cross-disciplinary research, are the key characteristics of development in the field of electromechanical control. Continuing education programs will be provided periodically. With the industry-academy cooperation with the entities in the industry, relevant courses and practical application projects are provided to cultivate skilled manpower required by the industry.

(3)Computer Application: Technology nowadays is developed for and built on a computer. Computer application almost covers everything. With the subsidy granted by Ministry of Education in the past, the embedded system laboratory with the teaching and research equipment needed for digital circuit design and development was established. As computer application focuses on the future development potential of consumer electronics, multimedia and network communication technologies, and the “design and application of the single chip/embedded system” is then intended to be the key development direction in the field of computer application. A set of microcontroller teaching aids has also been developed for the field of computer application to help enhance practical teaching. Besides, a network telephone system that integrates a traditional switchboard has also established at NCUT, allowing its teachers and students to talk via traditional extension telephones and network extension telephones free of charge, and therefore save costs.

The Schooling

The Department’s school systems and the number of classes are as follows:

1. 12 classes for students in the four-year technical program provided by Day Division

2. One class for foreign students in the industry-academy cooperation program of information and electrical engineering
