Introduction

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at National Chung Hsing University was begun in August 1993, with a Master program, the first of its kind in central Taiwan. The initial efforts were directed at building up faculty, graduate enrollment and research capacity. In 1996, the department started its Ph.D. program, to be followed by the addition in 2000, of an undergraduate program.

Currently, the faculty members include 14 professors, 3 associate professors, and 4 adjunct professors. There are also two administrative assistants and one technician in the department. The student body consists of about 100 phD, 150 Master (including 100 professional graduate students), and 210 undergraduate students.
