Dean's MessageIn the past decade, the technologies developed from the areas in electrical engineering and computer science have brought unprecedented impact to our life and changed our daily activities at rapid pace. The pace of changing is further accelerated due to the advance in electronic technology, the paradigm shift to Cloud computing, and the increasing popularity of various new IOT applications.
The College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) of National Taiwan University, founded in 1997, now consists of the Division of Electrical Engineering (EE) and the Division of Computer Science (CS). Currently, the College of EECS includes the Department of Electrical Engineering, the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, as well as the Graduate Institutes of Photonics and Optoelectronics, Communication Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Networking and Multimedia, and Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics, covering several most areas in EECS. As of 2015, the College boasts a total of about 180 faculty members, 1300 undergraduate students, and 2200 graduate students. Many of our faculty members are renowned researchers in international academia community and have been recognized with several prestigious awards. For instance, as of today, we have about 30 IEEE fellows, accounting for one-sixth of the existing faculty members. Our students are the best in engineering areas from all over Taiwan. We also have many good international students from all over the world.
The electronic and information industry, which is considered the most important industry in Taiwan, plays a critical role in the world. By collaborating with industrial companies, our college has been making major contributions to the country and the world. EECS could also stand for Edifying Elite with Cheerful Spirit, which is a certainly joyful picture every faculty member loves to have. Our college is endowed with the vision to educate new generations of engineers and leaders, to continue to make major advances in the new science of EECS, to develop more cutting-edge technologies to improve human life, and to assist and promote successful industry, both domestic and worldwide.
