Institute of Precision Mechatronics Engineering



Educational objectives

The aim of the Institute of Precision Mechatronic Engineering at MUST is to equip students with practical modern techniques and knowledge of basic engineering theories for interdisciplinary engineering challenges involving mechanical, electrical, electronic, and computer engineering, etc. Accredited by the Institute of Engineering Education Taiwan (IEET), our program is endorsed by the Washington Accord Signatories, and all the degrees and licenses granted are recognized by the APEC countries.

Development highlights

Ø          Emphasizing on the extension of engineering education and pursuing application practicality as the direction, the goal is to accomplish integration of multiple technologies.

Ø          Combining faculties and resources from the departments of photonic engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, chemical engineering, and industrial engineering management to lay the foundation of integrated precision mechatronics and manufacturing technology to enhance students’ knowledge in the related fields.

Ø          Extending current research activities in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (e.g. micro laser manufacturing, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, precision detection, system design, etc.), integrating photonics, electrical engineering, and chemical engineering, and enhancing interdisciplinary capabilities through hands-on projects.

Ø          Collaborating with industries in projects of product development, problem-solving, and in-site training, etc. to strengthen the capability of research planning and execution.


Faculty and research interests

Currently there are thirty full-time faculty members in the institute; among them, twenty-one are assistant professors or above (eighteen granted doctoral degrees). Furthermore, the institute actively acquires profound lecturers from elite professionals at the Hsin-chu Science Park and the Industrial Technology Research Institute to broaden our faculty coverage and to supply students with first-hand experiences from various industrial settings.
