Introduction

This department is a top department in the field of information engineering in China. Its specialization areas include computer science, computer hardware design, computer networks, mobile communications, data science, artificial intelligence, biomedical information and engineering, etc. Actively promote international academic exchanges and cooperation, and have signed academic research cooperation agreements with many foreign universities (such as the University of Minnesota, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Chiba University, Japan, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, Switzerland). And signed a dual degree program with Wayne State University in the United States to provide students with opportunities to study and study abroad to broaden their horizons and increase international competitiveness. The alumni graduates are distributed in important domestic and foreign companies, such as Google, Apple, TSMC, Oracle, nVIDIA, MediaTek, Formosa Plastics Group and other famous companies. In addition, there are many successful entrepreneurial alumni serving as founder, CEO, CTO and other positions.

 

History       AI

The electronic information industry is my country’s largest industry, and many young engineers are required to join the sustainable development of the industry every year. However, according to the statistics of the Economic Development Council, the supply of well-trained engineers is still insufficient, especially the demand for software engineers is even more urgent. In view of this, the school established the Institute of Information Engineering in August 1990, recruiting 15 new graduate students, and hired Professor Li Xueyang, the former head of the Department of Information Engineering, National Taiwan University, as the first director. "Biotechnology system integration talents" is the educational goal. After two years of detailed planning, we actively recruited excellent teachers, and invested nearly 20 million in the purchase of research equipment to build various research laboratories and establish a good research environment. The university established the university department in August 1992 and recruited the university department. Forty-four freshmen. Professor Li Xueyang resigned in January 1992 due to personal health. In February 1992, the school extended the appointment of Professor Zhong Qiangui, the former director of the Department of Information Engineering of Jiaotong University, as the director and department head. In the second semester of the 96 academic year, Associate Professor Shih-Lin Wu served as the director and department head. In the first semester of the 100 academic year, Associate Professor Chung-Chih Lin was appointed as the director and head of the department. In the second semester of the 104 school year, Professor Shih-Lin Wu assumed the position of director and department head. In the second semester of the 106 academic year, Professor Jen-Hui Chen will assume the positions of director and department head.

Department goal

The educational goal of this department is "to cultivate excellent information engineering talents who combine theory and practice". Adhering to the school's educational philosophy of "cultivating professionals with rich academic theories and practical skills to improve the health of the people and promote industrial upgrading" and the school motto of "diligence and simplicity", it is consistent with the educational goal of the School of Engineering "to cultivate outstanding engineering talents combining theory and practice".
The detailed educational goals are:
    1.The core knowledge and capabilities required to perform information system (including components) analysis, design, production, application, and maintenance, etc., to meet the needs of performing engineering majors or continuing education.
    2.The work literacy required to be engaged in information engineering to meet the different careers in the future.
    3.Understand the social, environmental, and ethical responsibilities of information engineers.
The institute takes "information system design", "information application technology" and "computer network technology" as the research direction, and cultivates four types of information system engineers, application software engineers, network system engineers and network equipment engineers in the electronic information industry. Senior engineering talents are the focus of education.

Teaching purpose

Adhering to the school's educational philosophy of "cultivating leaders with international vision and forward-looking, down-to-earth" and the school motto of "diligence and simplicity", this department takes "cultivating outstanding engineers needed for the future development of the domestic information industry" as the teaching goal. The course design is based on the blueprint of the information science curriculum recommended by the IEEE/ACM international academic organization, and then based on the core knowledge required by my country's information engineers to formulate mandatory elective courses, purchase nearly 20 million yuan of equipment to build a university basic laboratory , Every two people have the same equipment as the national university for internship. In addition, general education courses are also designed according to the work literacy of information engineers, such as "corporate organization and work ethics", "communication skills and leadership control", "Intellectual Property Rights", "Knowledge Management", etc., And every student needs to go to an information company for an internship for two months during the summer vacation of the third year to understand the R&D and operation methods of the information company. The purpose is to train students to have a good foundation in information engineering theory and practice, prepare for employment and meet the challenges of work.

Teaching research characteristics

1. The Department of Information Engineering of Chang Gung University is positioned as an industrial research department with equal emphasis on basics and applications. In addition to academic research, it is also closely integrated with the industry, using industrial resources in practical teaching, providing industrial technical services, and assisting industrial development Upgrade and follow the trend of the industry, and cultivate outstanding talents with solid theoretical foundation and practical experience and meet the needs of the industry.
2.In order to establish a good academic and industrial research environment, the department has built 2 high-standard computer classrooms, 4 core laboratories and 17 research laboratories, and continues to purchase high-end parallel computing servers and cloud computing storage servers, Android handheld development device kit, iMac Computers and other equipment to help students learn in school can be in line with the current popular technological development trend.
3.In order to give the students of the Department of Information Engineering of Chang Gung University a competitive advantage in the workplace, the department actively establishes cooperative relationships with well-known companies, such as hTC, Quanta, Microsoft, and Volkswagen Computer, by providing students with opportunities for internships and collaborative research. Assist students to combine theory and practice. And from the contact with first-class enterprise engineers and supervisors, we can learn all the abilities needed in the future workplace early, and through this industry-education model, we can provide students with the opportunity to directly enter the enterprise.
4.The department also actively promotes various international academic exchanges and cooperation, and recently cooperated with Cardiff in the UK on the promotion of the international joint talent cultivation plan (engineering and applied sciences). University’s CUBRIC, US NIDA, NIH and other research institutions have jointly completed the proposal, and will soon cooperate with Paris-Saclay of France The University conducts MOU negotiation, and after completing the negotiation, it will actively strive to become a member of the international common talent cultivation plan. In addition, it has also cooperated with Wayne State University in the United States, Cardiff University in the United Kingdom, INRIA in France, and IIT Kharagpur in India. The branch campus, Sherbrooke University in Canada, Tianjin University on the mainland, Beijing University of Technology and Dalian University of Technology have a number of research projects in progress, which will provide students with opportunities to study abroad and enhance their international vision.
