Organization profile

Organization profile

The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the National Central University is one of the leading institutions in engineering education and is renowned for its world-class research. The Department offers a comprehensive curriculum, uniquely merging core chemical engineering courses with the essences of materials science/engineering, further strengthened with the in-depth learning of state-of-the-art research in emerging industrial trends. There are currently 21 faculty members in the Department with diverse research backgrounds ranging from chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science and physics to bioengineering, and is supported by 8 staff members. Around 250 undergraduate and 200 M.S. or Ph.D. graduate students are currently enrolled in the department. The Department is supported by the Ministry of Education with an annual budget of ~$4 million and by a variety of government agencies and private organizations, which collectively award ~NTD $35 million in funds each year. The Department commands sufficient resources to fulfill our educational and research objectives. The research and teaching interests of our faculty members include: Biochemical & biomedical engineering, catalysis & reactor design, thermodynamics (chemical, solid-state, fluid-phase equilibrium), colloid & interface science, electrochemistry, packaging of electronic materials, novel material synthesis, polymer science & engineering, and soft matter physics & materials. Through close collaboration among our faculty members, we bridge the gaps among different disciplines and are in a better position to broaden the horizon of our students and educate the interdisciplinary-minded engineers of the next generation.
