The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at National Taiwan University has been committed to excellence in research and teaching for the past 40 years. We are comprised of about 45 faculty and staff members, postdoctoral scientists, visiting scholars, and more than 200 research students studying for postgraduate degrees. In addition, each year our undergraduate program accepts 50 of the nation’s top high school students. We have consistently been ranked in the top 5 for bachelor’s degrees across all science, engineering, and technology disciplines based on Taiwan’s College Entrance Examination. As part of our international strategy, we have a wide range of formal collaboration agreements with top institutions worldwide for student and faculty exchanges, double degrees, and cotutelle research programs.
The Department’s research covers all major areas of engineering materials, including metals, ceramics, polymers, electronic materials, biomedical materials, 2D materials, and solid-state device materials. Our current research income is about NTD 120 million per year, primarily from competitive research projects funded by the Taiwanese government, industry, and foreign funding sources via large-scale international collaboration (e.g. the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation). Throughout the history of the Department, it has been at the forefront of education and research for materials science and engineering, with many notable alumni in academia and industry. The Department is continuing to grow and is committed to becoming one of the top institutions in the world for the study of materials.
