The Department of Power Mechanical Engineering is located in the College of Engineering, and offers a complete degree program from baccalaureate to the doctoral
The Department of Power Mechanical Engineering has been focusing on the integration of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering since its founding in 1972. This is to educate young elite and to develop core technology essentials which will satisfy the nation’s needs in the foreseeable future, they have developed and expanded the conventional mechanical engineering curricula to include four programs: electric control program, micro and nano technology program, energy program as well as high precision manufacturing program.
The Department of Power Mechanical Engineering has upgraded its curriculum to remain competitive in the engineering industry and places research emphases on four interdisciplinary fields: power and energy systems technology, opto-mechatronic systems technology, nano and micro technology, and bioengineering technology.
National Tsing Hua University’s Department of Power Mechanical Engineering Ranked Highest in Taiwan
On 8th March 2017 the international higher education information organisation, Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), announced the latest World University Rankings by subject. The National Tsing Hua University’s Department of Power Mechanical Engineering was ranked 38th in the field of mechanical engineering—which is the highest in Taiwan!
The Department of Power Mechanical Engineering added programs in nano-engineering and micro-systems in 2015, which has since had a number of outstanding teachers in the fields of micro-electromechanical systems and nano-engineering joining the department.
In addition, the Department boasts a number of eminent alumni, including Vigor Yang, the William R. T. Oakes Professor and Chair of the School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and an Academician of Academia Sinica and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). Amongst the Department’s many alumni now holding top positions in the high-tech industry, one who stands out is Huang Youzhi, the technical director at Largan Precision.
The Department’s strong reputation has also been enhanced by its many graduates who have gone on to establish successful companies.
