National Chiao Tung university (NCTU) has been famous for its endeavor to educate students in the field of applied science since its inception in 1896 in China. Realizing the value of NCTU as an outstanding institute for educating potential electrical engineers, the government approved the restoration of NCTU in Taiwan in 1957. A year later, the graduate Institute of Electronics was established to train students in the field of electronics. In 1964, NCTU finally restored the undergraduate program which allows it to further supply the necessary manpower to Taiwan's burgeoning electronics industry. Since then, the Department has been instrumental in promoting the local industry by delivering great people and great innovations.
 The mission of the Department is to educate talented individuals in the area of electronics and information technology, and to develop cutting edge technologies for civilian applications. The core technology of the Department focuses on microelectronics material and relevant technologies, devices, systems, and their applications in information, automation, communications, healthcare and medicine. To facilitate our research effort, our faculties have established and currently direct a number of research labs and centers, including the National Nano Device Laboratory, National Chip Implementation center, NANO center, LEE and MTI Center for Networking Research and Microelectronics and Information Systems Research Center. Since their inception, these laboratories have fostered a close relationship with our industry partners, such as TSMC, UMC, ITRI, and Mediatek.
There are currently 55 full-time faculties in the department. Approximately 400 students are enrolled in our undergraduate program, along with 400 Master's students and 250 Ph.D. students. 3,164 students have graduated with Bachelor's degree since 1964. 3,108 and 644 students have been granted Master's and Ph.D. degrees, respectively, since the establishment of the Institute of Electronics in 1958. Many of our graduates have engaged in academic and industrial research and development, as well as non-technical industry. Our alumni have helped to strengthen the tie between our Department and the booming electronics industry, which creates mutual benefits for our school and the business community in Taiwan. With these abundant resources, we are confident that we can be the world's top institute in electrical engineering.
