With the joint efforts of previous CoE Deans as well as the accomplishments of our faculty members and students, the CoE has developed from a mere four departments back in 1945 to a comprehensive college with six departments and graduate institutes, five independent graduate institutes, three doctoral programs, one all-English bachelor degree program, and ten college-level research centers. With more than 5,000 teachers and students each year, we often see our alumni serving important positions with outstanding performance in different sectors, including the government, academia, and the private sector.

To address both the short-term urgent issues and the long-term development goals of the CoE, as the Dean, I will focus on the four main axes below, including 1) expanding organization and strengthening administration capacities; 2) garnering more resources and optimizing the quality and quantity of teaching/research; 3) stimulating enrollment via various channels, improving QS/USR rankings, and deepening international cooperation; and 4) exercising social responsibility and promoting domestic/international industry-academia collaboration. Moreover, during the implementation process, the CoE Office will conduct regular reviews and rolling adjustments to meet the real-time needs of future developments.


  • Expanding the organization of the CoE and strengthening administrative capacities

The CoE administrative workforce will be divided into units responsible for teaching, admissions, academic affairs, research, international cooperation, industry-academia collaboration, fund-raising, etc. Moreover, functional Deputy Deans will be appointed to reinforce the division of labor and execution efficiency of the units, facilitate communication among departments and graduate institutes, and further boost CoE's competitiveness.


  • Garnering more resources and optimizing the quality and quantity of teaching/research

The CoE will help build interdisciplinary teams and provide grants at the initial stage of founding to assist the teams in securing large-scale research projects. This year, with the upcoming 100th anniversary of NTU and the 80th anniversary of the CoE, we will set out to raise more funds to optimize the quality and quantity of teaching and research. In addition, we will draft different incentive and subsidization measures for junior and senior faculty members, respectively. To improve the student's learning environment, the CoE will also promote the planning and fund-raising of a new building to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the CoE.


  • Stimulating enrollment via various channels, improving QS/USR rankings, and deepening international cooperation

In the future, the CoE will integrate the resources from its departments and graduate institutes to further stimulate enrollment from home and abroad. At the same time, we will devise department-specific strategies and incentives for the improvement in QS/USR rankings. By facilitating more exchanges and cooperation projects with the engineering colleges at other top universities from around the world, we also seek to bolster the CoE's international visibility by securing more bilateral cooperation projects and offering more dual degree programs, jointly-instructed courses with international scholars, and courses conducted in English, thereby increasing the number of international students.


  • Exercising social responsibility and promoting domestic/international industry-academia collaboration

The CoE will integrate its resources and exercise its social responsibility by offering professional advice on government policies and action plans, thereby exerting the influence of NTU on the government. Also, we will continue to promote domestic and international industry-academia collaboration and assist the development of Taiwan's key industries, such as those involved in the 12 Key Strategies of the 2050 Net-Zero Goal announced by the government.


With the four main axes of vision and development, we believe that the CoE can provide the education that our students need, that they are to expedite Taiwan's future development and stand the challenges of the ever-changing industrial trends, and that they will continue to make remarkable contributions to both the society and the world.
