Research Direction

The faculty's research expertise includes digital signal processing, audio processing, biomedical information, multimedia information capture, multimedia security and protection, image processing, information security, e-learning, embedded systems, mobile computing, data mining and other information important fields. The department boasts ample funding, equipment complete novel, able to meet the required teachers and teaching and research. The department, according to the needs of teachers and industry expertise and through numerous meetings, chose the advantages of this system compared with the characteristics of the study subjects, set three research focus areas as: Interactive multimedia applications, Wisdom of life science and technology" and "Internet technology and applications." three research focus areas, as a key development direction of the department:

Interactive multimedia applications  

  1. Image and video processing: the scientific and technological progress century, the rapid popularization of digital images, audio video application requirements of the ardent, such as: Flickr , Picasa , Youtube and other websites are rising is proof. This field will focus on image and video processing technology and the practical application. In addition, the video image is also concerned at the relevant media and extending technologies. Since the rise of digital home, led to considerable opportunities, regardless of IT, consumer, communications, and other 3C industries are to progress in this direction. In this huge business opportunity, entertainment and information products shipments potential huge space for development, including entertainment products to DVD recorders, digital TV / STB, PMP and other digital audio and video products were well received.
  2. Audio processing: The main focus in this area is on speech and music classes, compression encoding, and noise control. In speech mainly to resolve the re-synthesis approach to compression coding such as ITU standards. In music, mainly in the frequency domain and psychoacoustic considerations feelings for compression coding such as MPEG standard MP3 and AAC .
  3. Multimedia Security: In recent years, with the rapid development of the Internet, the information obtained is more rapid and convenient, digital multimedia through the Internet made easy situation, accompanied by information on the creator or owner of the rights has been greatly threats, how to effectively prevent these violations of copyright issues, it is currently a major problem in digital multimedia applications on the Internet. The main purpose of digital multimedia security is to protect the image and integrity of digital multimedia declare real owner.
  4. Multimedia Entertainment: The most popular department of the multimedia computer entertainment industry cultivates students' abilities for multimedia and game programming. In addition to the strength of the student programming, other areas of focus are related computer vision, computer graphics, image processing of, and guidance applied to 2D, 3D game design on the computer. The overall aim is to foster the development of skilled workers in the computer game programming industry, as well as to enhance talent and ability.

Smart Life Technology

  1. AI:  Artificial Intelligence, mainly in research on how to use the computer's capabilities to perform some would have to be done by humans in order to perform work, human intelligence will be computerized, so that the computer has to think, learn and problem-solving skills. Related applications include expert systems, robotics, natural language processing, machine vision, machine translation, speech recognition and machine learning.
  2. Data Mining: Data Mining also known as the repository of knowledge discovery (Knowledge Discovery in Databases) . Refers to dig out from the database of potential, clear, and very useful information of the process, and presented in an easy to understand manner. Learn repository is the foundation for data mining and supplemented by a variety of different data structures and algorithms to achieve the process of knowledge discovery. Artificial intelligence and neural network technology are all common mining technology.
  3. Medical Information: Medical information is crosscutting combination of information technology and medical application of the industry. In major medical industries and institutions, have been combined with information technology related products and services to the medical information, such as electronic medical records management system, clinical diagnosis support systems, patient monitoring systems and automatic interpretation of medical imaging and diagnostic aid system, in the face of huge Under the medical service market, is bound to have a large demand for medical and information interdisciplinary talents. Both theory and teaching in the art and used to nurture issue across medicine, IT personnel in both areas, with the effective application of information technology capability in the field of medicine, in order to promote social well-being.
  4. Embedded Systems: With the development of chip design and manufacturing technology and the Internet, many high-tech products emphasize the wisdom of nature, under the demands of multi-function network link, and requires a lot of embedded systems and technical personnel. In Jufan network equipment, digital audio system, mobile phone, PDA, digital cameras, vehicle information and control electronics, embedded systems are the foundation for their development, and therefore the field of embedded products have become an integral part of the relevant application. Through the creation and training related courses, the department will foster talented engineers for this industry.

Internet Technology and Applications

  1. Internet Applications: Future Internet application technology will face the following situations and challenges, (1) broadband, wireless, mobile, IPv6 arrival, and high movement speed and other characteristics of the new generation networks; (2) heterogeneous domains roaming between, for example, 3G / GPRS and WLAN roaming; and (3) various computing capability (computing power) of the client device. Study of Internet applications including wired and wireless network of media access control and technology, data / voice /video / multimedia transmission, network resource assignment, service quality assurance methods, wireless /wired network bridging technology and Internet network Road Web2.0 applications.
  2. Mobile Computing: The purpose of the focus is to teach students with field systems development capability in mobile devices and embedded systems. Therefore, students attending basic programming courses will receive three training courses, including: embedded systems programming, programming mobile devices, embedded driver design implementations. After attend these courses, students for employment or further studies will be competitive wireless technologies and embedded systems industries.
  3. Information Security: information security courses offered, mainly in the "information security" as the core curriculum, extending the course was "Cryptography" (contains traditional and modern cryptography ). Practice Course part of a "network security" and emphasis on wireless environment "mobile device security", the popular e-commerce in recent years, also set up relevant safety courses. Technical courses partly open "hacker attack and defense technology," serve to help the students to existing common hacker attack and defense technology to have a preliminary understanding.
  4. Database: The purpose of the course is to give students experience in the field and use a lot of distributed network systems for data storage. In order to allow students to learn database theory and operating practices, students attending basic programming courses will receive training in database systems and database applications design. After completion of these courses, students for employment or further studies will have database programming, web system design, software system development competitiveness of related industries.

 Career opportunity

  Application of Information Technology of the times, led the electronic information industry by the early PC, progressed to the diversity of network applications currently use handheld mobile devices and digital content, making the information industry has become the main driving force for economic development; related demand for talent is quite eager, so students very broad way. The Department of multimedia applications, embedded system application and application-related signal processing technology as the main development features, in line with the current development trend of industry and academia. Therefore, this Master's graduates to continue their studies abroad whether or investment service industry, are the subject of much recognition.
