The Department of Electrical Engineering at Southern Taiwan University was established in 1969. Presently there are 37 faculty members actively engaging in research and teaching in three fields of expertise: Control and IC, Power and Information, Biomedical Electronics. As of June 2007, the enrollment of EE department was 1101, including 989 in the undergraduate program and 112 in the graduate program. STUT EE Department is offering programs which award BS, MS, and Doctoral degrees.
According to a May 2007 issue of Evaluation, a bimonthly publication dedicated to evaluation and accreditation of higher education in Taiwan, in a survey based on the data from ISI web of Science from 2002 to 2006, STUT’s EE Department ranked 15th on both “total number of papers”and “total number of citations”categories among all Electrical Engineering Departments in Taiwan. Since 2000, STUT’s EE Department constantly ranked among the top EE Departments of private universities in the number of research grants from the National Science Council of Taiwan.
In 2006, our undergraduate program was accredited by IEET, the Taiwanese counterpart of ABET, which is also a Signatory of the Washington Accord. Our graduate program was accredited by the same institution in 2008.
In August 2007, STUT’s EE Department extended the warmest welcome to students from around the globe and started the international master’s program. It is our hope that this program will play a vital role, not only on the STUT campus, but also in the regional cooperation throughout Asia and beyond.
