Department of Electrical Engineering



 Department History

   “Guang-Wu Industry Junior College” was established in 1971, at that time, the school offered a 5 year electrical engineering diploma. In 1989, the school expanded and built a new department building and launched a 2 year EE diploma along with it. In August2000, the school changed its name into “Guang-Wu Institute of Technology” and then established its 2 year electrical engineering department. In 2001, the 4 year degree program was formed and in 2003 a Master’s degree of  mechatronic engineering could be also obtained throughout the courses. In 2004, the school was once again renamed as “Northern Taiwan Institute of Science and Technology” and later on the next year introduced their Robot Museum. In 2006, the name was changed to “Technology and Science Institute of Northern Taiwan” and finally in February 2013, the school has advanced to a university status and was giving the final name of “Taipei ChengShih University of Science & Technology”.


  The Electrical Engineering Department offers 5 year diploma, 4 year degree in the day course schedule (18 classes), the night course offers a 4 year degree (4 classes) and advance studies (2 classes). The school also offers Master’s Degree in Mechatronic Engineering which includes three groups of  mechanicals, electricals and electronics in its day courses.



The Education Goal

   The goal of a technical and vocational education system is to train and provide students with the needed knowledge, resource and moral practices to become successful in their future. Through the system of our school, students obtain professional and practical skills with industry standards. Students  will:

(A) Gain the ability to learn and organize in multidisciplinary environments. 

(B) Have the ability to work professionally and creatively.

(C) Communicate effectively in a team surrounding.
 Practical studies are important measures to success, but more importantly is a responsible attitude and business ethics. In order to help students transform smoothly into the work force, the department of electrical engineering train students to have the 9 core abilities:
   (A) The ability to use math, science and mechanical knowledge to analyze and interoperate data.

(B) The ability to analyze data with the use of software and hardware.

(C) The ability to introspect, to learn and to self-improve.

(D) The ability to develop business morals, work ethic, kindness towards our society.

(E) The ability to create and innovate.

(F) The ability to determine, analyze and solve problems.

(G) The ability to communicate, coordinate in a team environment, and the ability of self-management.

(H) The ability to read and understand foreign language and the impact of global tendencies.

(I) The ability to understand the importance of moral and law.
The Department of Electrical Engineering values both theory and practical experiences; the courses cover multidiscipline such as electrical engineering, electronics, information studies and mechanical studies. These diversification studies improve student’s ability to thrive in different industries. We encourage students to create programs, obtain certificates, enroll in competitions and file for patterns; these experiences are the best way to help students adapt to real life work.




The Development

Department Focus (A)

The core feature of this department lies within Opto-Mechatronics Engineering, it branches out into [Electrical Power][Control Application] and [Opto-electronic Application] [Electrical Power] : Power Electronics, Electric Motor Controller, Power Supervisory System, Power System Simulation, Green Energy and Energy Saving Engineering

[Control Application]: Robots, FPGA Embedded System Design

[Opto-electronic Application]: Digital Image Processing, Precision Photo Detection
   Our department focuses on robotic technology as our core study, other study such as electronics, information, and mechanical studies could also be obtained through our courses. Faculty instructors aim to integrate different studies to practice cross platform collaborations. We encourage and help guide students to apply for grants for special projects, national design competitions, certificates and patent.

   In the past three years, our faculty has joined national design exhibition / competitions at Taipei, Nürnberg in Germany, and Geneva in Swiss and Seoul in Korea; we have been awarded with 69 awards from these exhibitions. In Taiwan, we have acquired over 350 awards in robotic related competitions. Faculty students have acquired over 1159 certificates to greatly improve their advantage in work seeking. Faculty teachers also have filed over 57 patents in the past three years, of which 38 of them are collaborated together by students and instructors. While we have achieved much in exhibitions and competitions, we also have obtained government projects which connect students directly with tech industries; the total amount of grant money has exceeded 28 million NTD.


Department Focus (B)
Promoting popular science & education: the establishment of our Robot Museum aims to promote popular science through the help of robots; by doing so, it increase the interests in science for many younger audiences.

Science and Humanities: our faculty promotes science and humanities through series of events through the collaboration with the Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan, industry collaborations and the Ministry of Education.

Our faculty established the Robot Museum in 2005. There are three different robot themes which are “Bioelectricity Robots”, “ancient robots” and “humanoid Robots”. The museum consists of 15 professional labs and two special showrooms which exhibits over 200 robots. This is great success of robotic researches and developments and has grown to be one of the tech institute major exhibitions in Taiwan. Few of the labs are designed as “open labs” which showcases the development process of the robots to visitors; you would be able to see how the pet robots, industrial robots, humanoid robots or insect robots are made right in front of you 
   “Robot Museum” was built with the purpose of promoting robotic science to our citizens; this project allows us to visit a vast number of schools to introduce the technology used behind this project. We have gone far even to Kinmen and Matsu to showcase our results. Our students played an important role as they were the ones who introduced, fixed, and worked maintenance for the robots we showcase. There were over 60 students (including students of Master’s studies) who joined this project and they have learned the more important lesson of helping each other, team work, responsibility outside of classrooms, and this is the most important education that we can give our students.

    We teach and learn not only inside the classroom, but we take our students and bring these teachings into the society. Our achievements are often reported by news media with a positive feedback and thus help us once again, promoting science and technology.
