Mechanical Engineering Department

Glorious historyExcellent upcoming future Establish in 1911

In 1911  The Industrial School of the Japanese Viceroy's Office was established at the current campus. That is one of the oldest industrial schools in Taiwan.

In 1914  The metalwork department was added to the Industrial School of the Japanese Viceroy's Office, that is the beginning of the mechanical engineering department.

In 1948 Provincial Taipei Industrial Vocational School was upgraded to be Provincial Taipei Institute of Technology (PTIT), offering a five-year program, admitting junior high-school graduates to study in the fields of mechanical engineering.

In 1994 PTIT was upgraded to be the National Taipei Institute of Technology with 4- and 2-year programs.  The two-year program admits junior college graduates. The four-year program admits high-school and vocational school graduates. The department awards bachelor degree to both programs.

In 1996 Institute of Mechatronic Engineering was established.

In 1997 National Taipei Institute of Technology was renamed to National Taipei University of Technology.

In 1999 Institute of Manufacturing Technology was established.


Research Features:

Calls for need of higher education in pace with the rapid development in Taiwan industry have prompted the department develop graduate school: Institute of Mechatronic Engineering, offering master as well as doctoral degrees.  Both institutes serve as platforms for developing high-technology techniques and products.  The main research areas for respective institute are as follows.

1. Mechatronic Technology: mechanism, electronics, sensor, actuator, and controller integration, machine vision and image processing, automatic optical inspection, interactive recreational equipment design, etc..

2. MEAMS: microsensor and microactuator, microsystem design and fabrication, optoelectronic measurement, microthermal and fluid system, micro system packaging and testing, RF communication IC design, micro molding and injection, etc..

3. Precision Machinery: precision mechanism and transmission system, precision driver design and control, vibration and noise control, rapid prototyping design, precision machinery design and control, etc..

4.  Semi-Conductor Technology and BioTech: semi-conductor device design, IC manufacturing process, IC packaging and testing, DNA chip, protein chip and biochip design, etc..


Teaching Features:

The department currently has more than 40 staff members and 500 students.  The educational goals of this department are :

 To nourish professional engineers of the ability in the field of mechanical engineering both in theory and practice.

To offer trainings in foreign languages, liberal arts and law for well-rounded industrial people.

To boost the level of research skill and improve the ability in developing new technology for industry.

    The department offers 2-year as well as 4-year programs, both leading to bachelor degree. Special attentions have been paid to the teaching of basic courses so that every student has a sound mechanical engineering knowledge both in theory and practice.  For the higher level students, the junior  students are required to take all courses that are pertinent to build the foundation for advanced studies; and for the senior students, the department provides more freedom and selectivity so that they can acquire the necessary knowledge for enriching their professional engineer career.

     Another unique feature in the department course program is the design of special "academic programs" that are objective-oriented and multi-disciplinary.  According to students’ own aptitude, any of the following four academic programs can be chosen as a specialty: mechatronic engineering program, precision manufacturing program, innovation design program, and fluid and thermal program. Upon fulfillment of the requirement in each program, students will be awarded a certificate verifying their accomplishments and hence boosting their competence in job hunting.

In order to set a pursuing target for the students during their study in the university, a policy so called ‘1-3-1’ Policy has been developed.  The students have been  encouraged to work hard in acquiring the following pieces of certification: 
    1 piece of diploma: a useful and honorable NTUT diploma
    3 pieces of certificate: professional skill (national high/general exam
technician)English proficiencycomputer ability.
    1 piece of certification: certification of public services (within campus and/or  community service)
