The department was originally the Department of Electrical Engineering
established in 1963. In the spring of 2000, the department was reorganized
to become the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The objectives
of developing this department are to pursue and develop the newest technologies
not only in electrical and electronic engineering, but also in information
engineering, to train professionals for electronic and information industries.
Two courses, electrical and electronic engineering course and computer
engineering course, are designed for students who have completed their
first 3-year study in order to give them the opportunity to obtain deeper
knowledge of specialized fields according to students’ individual needs.
The department’s first 3-year curriculum concentrates on basic subjects in physics and mathematics along with subjects stressing the fundamentals of electrical, electronic and computer engineering, such as electronics, circuit theory, electromagnetics, electronic materials science, and programming languages. The curriculum also provides extensive laboratory work to enable students to become familiar with operating principles in related fields. A variety of laboratories equipped with workstations, computer networking terminals, lasers, communication systems, semiconductor manufacturing system, and other related equipment of the newest type are available.
Students of electrical and electronic engineering course are required to study specialized subjects, including advanced digital circuits and systems, microwave engineering, transmission engineering, and advanced electro-magnetics. Students of computer engineering course are required to study specialized subjects, including information theory, signal processing, data structures and algorithms, and mathematics in computer sciences. Moreover, a lot of elective subjects, such as optical engineering, control theory, opto-quantum electronics, network operating systems, artificial intelligence, and image processing are also provided. Ultimately, students can acquire competence to cope with the ever-progressing, high-technology industries.

The Educational Objectives of the Department of Electrical and Computer EngineeringIn order to train an international and ethical engineer who can respond to the ever-progressing technical landscape, the Electrical and Information Engineering Department aims to provide our students with an education by developing a critical and fundamental understanding of technology within the multi-layered fields of electricity, electronics and information technology, which forms the foundation of the information society. To achieve our goal we have introduced a curriculum that follows a path that allows for each student to individually select their own course of specialized study during the final fourth and fifth years of their technical education.
Our aim is to produce engineers by applying a curriculum that divides into two courses, namely, the Electric and Electronic Engineering Course and the Information Engineering Course. Additionally, our students strive to acquire an equal balance in fundamental knowledge encompassing every facet of electricity, the electronics, and information. Aspiring engineers will undergo thorough training in order to fulfill the professional requirements of his or her specialized trade.
The expression and the table below respectively show the image of “Engineer to Be Trained” and the educational objectives of the Electrical and Information Engineering
with respect to the criteria set by the JABEE program:
Engineer to Be Trained
Engineers who acquired fundamental knowledge encompassing every facet of electricity, the electronics, and information in equal balance, and the ability to undergo thorough training in order to fulfill the professional requirements of his or her specialized trade.
