About MSE
  The department of Materials Science and Engineering of National Chiao Tung University has undergraduate, master and doctoral degree programs. And has a total of 25 professors. The department has undergone mature development to become what it is today. We are in close cooperation with the National Nano Device Laboratories, Industrial Technology Research Institute, National Chung-Shan Institute and many high-tech industries in Hsinchu Science Park. With much emphasis on technology integration and innovative material design, we aim to help develop expertise in modern technology as well as cutting edge material manufacturing and selection for our society.
  Our department pays close attention to the foreign language capabilities of students. Encouraging and pushing them to participate in international conferences and publish papers abroad each year. Results have been remarkable and has received widespread recognition within and outside the country in academic as well as industrial fields. Recently, students of our department have exchanged to many reputable universities and major research centers (e.g. University of Washington, University of California, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) for further learning. We later received high praise of their good work.

  The department of Materials Science and Engineering has outstanding lecturers, accurate foresight on future technology development, top-notch experiment equipment, and grandest of department buildings. We are highly regarded by the high-tech industry and are well connected with top universities all over the world.
