Electronics and information technologies are the leading industries in Taiwan, both extensively require young blood to join each year in order to maintain the lead and further push the industries forward. However according to the statistics from the Council for Economic Planning and Development, Execute Yuan, there is still a significant short-supply of well-trained engineers that meet the needs. In particular, there is a much urgent demand for qualified software engineers. In view of this, we have equipped the department with the ultimate goals to educate people with comprehensive trainings in systems integrated with information engineering, communication and biotechnology.
In lieu of this, Chang Gung University established its Graduate Institute of Computer Science and Information Engineering in 2001, with 15 new master students to begin with. The undergraduate program of Computer Science and Information Engineering followed by recruiting its 44 freshmen in 2003. Since then the department has grown in size and as of 2016 there are
‧ 17 tenured or tenure track faculty
‧ 23 graduate students (Doctor of Science)
‧ 56 graduate students (Master of Science)
‧ 225 undergraduate students
‧ 3 administrative staff
Beginning in 2007 we started our Ph.D. program as one of the two branches in the Graduate Institute of Electric Engineering, Chang Gung University. We now have 23 Ph.D. students.
