History & Present Status

Previously originated in 1975 as the Department of Aeronautical Engineering, the Department of Aerospace and Systems Engineering now also provides both Ph.D. and M.S. programs from 2002. Each has its own regulations concerning admission, course work, dissertations, qualifying examinations, and oral defense of the dissertation leading to the graduate degrees. Coordinated programs of course work and research are available in a broad spectrum of subjects included in the following six major areas: 1) Fluid Mechanics and Aerodynamics, 2) Combustion, Heat Transfer , and Jet Propulsion, 3) Structures and Materials, 4) Guidance and Control, 5) Aviation Technology, and 6) Space System Engineering. A selection of specialized courses closely related to the major area and an extensive involvement with experimental or theoretical research work are required for a qualified thesis.

Goal

The department also integrates several research laboratories to support the department education and training. These Labs Include: CAD/CAM/CAE Lab, material testing and development Lab, non-destructive testing Lab, air and hydraulic control analysis Lab, low/high speed wind tunnel testing Lab, advanced electrical-mechanical control system Lab, and computational fluid dynamics research Lab. These laboratories that incorporate the on-going research projects from AIDC, NSC and industry, can train student to gain more practical experience in the application of academic studies and early cooperator work with industry and government.
Students who earn the degrees of Aerospace Engineering can well prepare in the fundamentals and application of these basic concepts to the solution of wide variety of engineering problems.


Features

The broad scope of Aerospace Engineering encompasses the physics of gas flow, heat transfer, structure, jet propulsion and dynamics&control.
The objectives of study direct toward to provide a broad program of technical and analytic skills in the areas of fluid dynamics, control theory, dynamics, structure mechanics and the application of these technical skills to the analysis, manufacture and design of aircraft, missiles and other complex technological systems.
The curriculum is designed to prepare students for professional positions in aeronautical and mechanical industries, in rapidly advancing fields of transportation, flight control and management, in environmental and urban technology, and also provide a strong background for graduate work if desired.


Future

Recently, the development of our department will focus on the quantity and quality promotion and heading up the programming direction, expecting that our department can become the investigative leader of communication engineering education in the central part of Taiwan. The target that we expect to complete in recent years is as follows:(1) To hire more excellent teachers and to keep on promoting the quality of our teachers.(2) Increase the number of graduate school students(contain both Master and Doctor classes)to promote the scholarship and level of the profession.(3) Cooperating with factories or companies to train outstanding talented persons and to develop result of our research.
