Major of Energy & Applied Chemistry
Energy is the most important resource in modern industrial society. Due to the depletion of fossil-based raw materials and global warming, the need and importance of low-carbon, eco-friendly, renewable energy is growing ever more evident. The Major in Energy & Applied Chemistry focuses on new renewable energy centering on solar energy and secondary batteries as storage devices based on traditional chemical technology. In order to develop experts in convergence that have acquired such extensive expert knowledge, (1) a lab-oriented undergraduate curriculum and (2) balanced theory and practical education on the synthesis and analysis of organic and inorganic materials, materials for solar batteries and secondary batteries, device manufacturing, and systems will be employed to reach the goal of nurturing future engineers with improved on-site adaptive abilities.
Major of Optical Technology & Energy Convergence
The Major in Photon Energy Convergence studies complex engineering that combines the advanced technology of electrical and electronic engineering based on photon technology. The field of application for photon technology is continuously expanding and is being widely applied to everyday items such as cameras and compact discs to optical communication, semiconductor manufacturing processing, ultra-precise processing, and environment measurements as well as medical equipment and satellites. Technological innovations in the modern optical electronics industry are taking place at a blinding pace and the industry wants experts that can handle such innovations. As such, our major operates a field-centered curriculum that fosters competent optics specialists.
