PhD in Computer Science & Information Engineering

General

Program Description

Founded in 1981, the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Central University initially offered a graduate degree only. After offering a doctoral degree in 1988 and the undergraduate degree in 1992, the department quickly evolves and sets up a complete curriculum for computer science education and research. The department admits around 100 undergraduates, 100 students to the master program, 30 students to the part-time master program, and 25 students to the doctoral program each year. Our department has one of the most stringent academic programs in Taiwan. While placing emphasis on the core knowledge enabling students to apply their skills to many computer science and engineering disciplines, our program requires students participating in practical projects and provides numerous hands-on opportunities in collaborations with industry and government labs. We offer cross-disciplinary research opportunities that encourage innovation and collaboration across multiple disciplines, helping students become well-prepared engineers and researchers.

National Central University was originally founded in Nanjing, China in 1915. NCU had later developed into a renowned academic institution with comprehensive programs and outstanding faculty, enjoying a high reputation equal to that of Peking University. In 1962, the Graduate Institute of Geophysics was founded in Miaoli, Taiwan as the re-establishment of the University. The campus was relocated to Zhongli in 1968, and today it has become a home to more than thirteen thousand students and teachers. Read less
