Information technology (IT) has been rapidly grown in the past decade and it is taken into account being one of the future significant industries all around the world. Consequently, we optimistically suppose that the IT specialists are more and more in the future. In order to meet the professional requirement of information industry and to suppose the comprehensive education training for the IT area, National Chiayi University (NCYU) established
the master program in computer science and information engineering in 2000,
the undergraduate program in 2002 and
the doctoral program in 2008.
We are looking forward to being one of the solid academic research foundations in Taiwan. With respect to the organization of curriculum, the program focuses on the theory, design development and application of computer systems and information processing techniques. Our curriculum balances theories and applications so that students will have a solid background in computer science as well as in depth knowledge and hands-on experience. Due to the broad applications of computer and information technologies and their interdisciplinary nature, we work closely with other departments, especially in electrical engineering, bioinformatics and computer educations.
