Ph. D.


The purpose of the department of Mechanical and Electro-mechanical Engineering is to establish systematic teaching and research programs focus on precision machinery and mechatronics. The graduate program provides study and research opportunities in two core areas: ‘opto-mechatronics’ and ‘precision machinery’. Students participate in the well-arranged program may gain professional knowledge and ability in these areas.

The goal of Doctorate program is to train qualified students to become researchers for the industry. Doctorate researches are generally supported by industry or government and most graduates of the program are now working in the research and development department in companies of precision machinery, semi-conductors, green energy, visual display, automation engineering, biotechnology, opto-electronics processing and machinery, etc. Doctorate courses can be categorized into the following areas: Engineering Design and Analysis, Thermal Science and Energy Engineering, Materials Processing and Manufacturing Process, Biomechanics and Bio-systems, Precision Engineering and Measurement, and Robotics and Control. In addition to the regular courses, there are 4 compulsory seminar courses, generally taught in English, in which each student may share and exchange research ideas with other students. Students in the Doctorate program are encouraged to present his research results in international conferences.

The department has the following Research Laboratories:

System Control Lab., Assistive Technology Lab., Design Optimization & CFD Lab., Machine Vision Lab., Precision Machining Lab., Opto-Mechatronics Lab., Vibration & Acoustics Lab., Advanced Photonics Lab., Bio-Medical Engineering Lab., Computational Mechanics Lab., Mechanics of Machinery Lab., Nano & Micro Systems Lab., Micro Electro Mechanical System Lab., Nano & Micro Electro Mechanical Systems Lab., Functional Materials & Manufacturing Lab. etc.

The topics of recent Ph. D. theses include micro aviation devices, three-dimensional precision measurement techniques, robot dynamics and control, and material processing techniques and manufacturing automation.
