This department was established in 2005 for matching national industrial development and meeting the need of cultivating information technology (IT) elite.

Modern IT needs input from other fields. In our university, the various colleges can help in this regard, making an excellent environment for our students. In addition, we have three nearby industrial parks, which need IT professionals to perform related tasks. Therefore, our department stands a good chance to thrive in this area.

Information industry is a major pillar of the success of national economic development. Most enterprises or institutes need ever-increasing task forces to push advances of information services. The shortage of IT workers does not seem to improve in the foreseeable future.

Nowadays, the domestic information industry is developing vigorously, driving a large demand for professionals in the IT industry, and information engineering talents are the most needed asset.   Since the information industry is one of the important pillars of the country’s economic development today, most companies or organizations have spared no effort to promote informatization in terms of operation and management.  It can be expected that the demand for information engineering manpower will continue.

The development goals of our department:

Strengthen the foundation of information science and engineering education.

Strengthen students' ability to apply information technology. In line with the domestic information industry environment, cultivate information professionals in the researches and applications of AI and IoT.

Cultivate the consensus of the department and cooperate in the development of research topics to establish academic characteristics and enhance the reputation of the department.
