The CSIE graduate programs are designed based on the faculty specialties, disciplines and facilities with special emphasis on intra- and inter-disciplinary collaboration with domestic and international partners. A great variety of research topics are grouped into three main domains, including:
The CSIE undergraduate program is carefully designed based on the computer science (CS) curriculum recommended by IEEE/ACM, and fine-tuned to accommodate the core knowledge set required for IT professionals in Taiwan. The program complies with the criteria advised by IEET (Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan), which charted by the ministry of education serves to promote and implement accreditation of engineering and technology programs in Taiwan based on criteria that are substantially equivalent to those adopted by the Washington Accord signatories. The program has been awarded accreditation starting academic year 2006. We have invested 50 million NT dollars in building comprehensive undergraduate laboratories, making that every student at least owns an independent set of computer/hardware facilities for their practices. In addition to the required and elective technical subjects, we also include courses designed for the general capacity and discipline which IT engineers are expected to possess, e.g., "Business management and ethics", "Communication skills and leadership", "Intellectual properties", "Knowledge management", etc. Furthermore, every student is required to go for a 2-month summer internship in IT companies at the end of his/her junior year, for the purpose of reinforcement of their school learning with actual field works. This way the students are trained to be able to combine academic theories with industrial strength, and are well prepared for the challenges laid ahead throughout his or her career development.
In addition to what are mentioned above, CSIE at Chang Gung University features the followings:
