The School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering has the educational goal of fostering the leading high-tech engineers with specialty and executive ability in the field of aerospace industries and mechanical industries. We have three major programs: Aerospace Engineering, Aircraft System Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. The students will be educated as the technical engineers who fully understand and apply the basic skills and new technology in the field of aerospace and mechanical engineering. They will be specialists with comprehensive knowledge and creative engineering design capability. Additionally they will be global leaders with international competitive advantages, social responsibility, communication, and problem solving competence with teamwork.
Common subjects will be offered to a freshman, and one chooses his or her major out of three majors. Students can change their majors before the 1st semester of the 4th year after some proper processes. Upon graduation students are mostly employed by leading, well known major companies in the aerospace, automobile, shipbuilding, electronics, and other related industries. We are truly proud of our high employment rate in today’s leading corporations.
First and second year courses of The School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering consist of co-requisite subjects. First year courses consist mostly of liberal arts and MSC(Mathematics, Sciences, and Computers) courses and second year courses covers basic theories which all three majors require. Major engineering courses are offered in the 3rd and 4th year according to the accrediting system by each major program.
Aerospace Engineering Majors will study courses covering theories in mechanics, designing and manufacturing related to airplane, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), spacecraft, satellites, and rockets. Courses in Aircraft System Engineering offers subjects related to aircraft operation, aircraft electricity and electronics, flight control systems, flight testing, flight safety and engineering technologies of the air transportation industry. Courses in Mechanical Engineering Majors mainly deal with thermal mechanics, fluid mechanics, mechanics of materials, dynamics, internal combustion engines, production engineering, automation, automatic control and system engineering. In the 4th year, students will be challenged to solve immediate problems with acquired knowledge in integrated engineering design courses to cultivate the comprehensive engineering capacity.
After fulfilling the requirements for either major program, a bachelor's degree in engineering is accredited. Students graduating from the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering are fully qualified to take advantage of job opportunities in aerospace/mechanical/manufacturing-related industries, airline companies, civil and governmental agencies, and private and governmental research institutes, all of which have offered excellent working positions to the graduates of our shcool. Master's and doctoral programs are also offered for those who are interested in furthering their education with more professional experience and guidance.
The School of Electronics, Telecommunication and Computer Engineering fosters high level engineers who will lead the core hi-tech domains of the future, such as the avionics, electronics, IT and computer industries.
The school was founded in 2000 by integrating the former departments of avionics, aviation IT and computer engineering. After completing the common and elective subjects in the first year, the students acquire knowledge in one of the following specialty areas - IT, electronics, avionics and computer data engineering - from the beginning of the second year. In order to foster high level science and technology talents equipped with the ability to resolve problems independently, the curriculum includes diverse basic and liberal arts subjects, in-depth major subjects, lab experiments, and on-the-job study programs.
This school is designed to enable students to play leading roles in their respective areas by training creative talents on inclusive and diverse training programs. To that end, the school helps the students to acquire the latest knowledge from the most advanced fields by progressively adapting its curriculum to reflect new technological developments in the industrial fields.
Furthermore, it enables the students to use the knowledge they acquire from the theoretical lectures on their respective major subjects through lab experimentation and on-the-job practice, and encourages them to study hard by holding academic seminars with experts invited from home and abroad, thereby narrowing the gap between the academic and industrial scenes. The school fosters excellent personnel in these rapidly-changing fields by helping students to develop their ability to think and express themselves through design subjects and project-based studies.
The Computer and Informatics Engineering course is designed to develop the students’ capacity for logical thinking and creativity through theoretical education and on-the-job practice in all aspects of the most advanced computing, information, communication and IT industries.
The curriculum of this course is designed to provide the brains for the advanced information industries, and includes not only the fundamental theories of software and hardware but also such extensive expert technologies as Internet and Web technologies, programming languages, information security, artificial intelligence, distributed computing, parallel processing, pattern recognition, database, computer graphics, simulation, complier, and operating systems.
Graduates will be awarded a BS degree, and will most likely go on to find jobs in diverse business and research organizations in the information, communication, electronics, finance and medical sectors.
The Department of Materials Engineering offers students an advanced education in the technologies of the metals, composites, and electro-electronic materials used not only in the aircraft industry but also in the general manufacturing industries, through systematic theoretical and practical programs, frequent experimentation, and hands-on training. Key subjects include material heat dynamics, materials science, steel, non-ferrous, composite materials, material engineering lab, metallography, and materials processing theories.
Graduates are awarded a BS and certificates in metal or heat treatment engineering after passing qualification tests and completing the courses. Graduates actively advance into government-sponsored research institutes or private businesses in the fields of metals, machinery, aircraft and semiconductors.
