Development Characteristics
At NUK, the Department provides a vigorous education to prepare students to become highly qualified chemical and materials engineers and tomorrow’s technology leaders. Additionally, the Department aims to expand and advance the frontiers of technology through research and innovations.
Our initiatives focus on three major themes:

■ Nano and Molecular Engineering
■ Advanced Materials Technology
■ Biochemical Engineering

Goals
To provide students with a solid foundation in both chemical and materials engineering.
To cultivate students with a liberal arts education, critical thinking, effective verbal and writing ability, and research and innovation ability.

Postgraduate Opportunities
Advanced Degree Study
  Graduates may pursue an advanced degree in chemical engineering, materials engineering, nanotechnology, chemistry, biochemistry, environmental engineering, energy technology, biomedical engineering, management, electrical engineering, information engineering, industrial engineering, etc.
Career Opportunities
  Students have a broad array of industry options available upon graduation: electronics, optoelectronics, semiconductor, materials, petroleum, chemistry, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, environmental protection, mechanical and metal industries. Our graduates’ average salary is usually higher than graduates whose majors are arts, law, or management, and is also one of the highest among science and engineering graduates. According to statistics, chemical engineers in Taiwan can make, on the average, an annual salary of NT $1000K within 5 years of graduation.

Future Outlook
Currently our department is strengthening its teaching and research laboratories with new equipment and modern instrumentation. These laboratories will allow us to better train our students to acquire the necessary experimental techniques and research capabilities.
At the same time, we are planning to establish a new Ph.D. program in nanotechnology and chemical& materials engineering to offer Ph.D. degree in addition to the present MS program. These programs intend to provide the highly skilled engineers and researchers necessary to meet the demand for talent of Taiwan’s technological development.
