COLLEGE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE NYCU
National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University established the country's first course in studying computers as early as 1960, and established the Department of Computer and Automated Engineering in 1970. Computer program students of this department specialized in learning knowledge about computers, and developed the first micro-computer of the country in 1971. In 1972, the Department of Control Engineering and the Department of Computer Science were set up. The latter was successively renamed the Department of Computer Engineering, and finally renamed the Department of Computer Science in 1988. With the gradual more detailed subdivision of research in computers, NYCU set up a separate Department of Information Science in 1980, which specialized in the research and education of computer science theory. The two departments have led the development of computer technology in the country since founding, and have created many "NYCU firsts," including the world's earliest Chinese keyboard, the world's first automatic stamp recognition system, and the country's first full optical switch.
Because cross-discipline integration is the major force behind progress in human technology and economy, and the reach of computer technology has spread to ever more numerous fields such as the internet, to telecommunications, multimedia, biomedical engineering, electronics, and electrical engineering. In order to train talent with the ability integrate knowledge and engage in innovation, the NYCU Department of Computer Science and Department of Information Science were combined into the Department of Computer Science, and is organized according to an innovative one college, one department, multiple institutes structure in 2005. Thus came into being the first College of Computer Science in Taiwan's national universities.
In a recent decade (2004-2014), the number of ESI papers published in the computer science field ranked number 42 globally, leading other universities in the country. Our professor lineup includes many fellows of international professional associations (including IEEE Fellow, ACM Fellow, AAAS Fellow, IET Fellow, IAPR Fellow, and JSPS Fellow), and throughout the years have produced many papers with high number of citations, and has had highly significant impact in the field of computer science.
Under the innovative organization of One College, One Department, and Multiple Institutes, we will create glorious results in research and education and march towards a world-class, first-rate university, a heavyweight in global Information Technology, and become an international education center in computer science education, as well as extend and elevate the scene of prosperity in Taiwan's IT industry.
