Organization profile

Organization profile

The Institute of Materials Science and Engineering (IMSE) at National Central University (NCU) was founded in August, 2005, and currently offers both master and doctoral programs. The long-term aim of our institute is to establish a world-class materials science research and teaching unit. As for the short term goal, we focus on developing renewable energy and hydrogen related technology by combining different fields of research units within NCU. Materials scientists and engineers are involved in every aspect of advanced technology, ranging from the design, processing, and application of materials. Our Institute has expertise in hydrogen energy, solar cells, fuel cells, and metal materials; those form the core of our enabling platform for advanced energy research at NCU, and the platform offers unlimited possibilities for innovation and development. The Institute is equipped with some of the most advanced instruments and has the International Double Degree Program and International Exchange Program with many leading universities to provide students with a wide range of learning opportunities.
