Teaching Goal
  • To cultivate professional IT-related industries for engineering and information.
  • To cultivate interdisciplinary and teamwork skills.
  • To cultivate international outlook and Lifelong learning.

Developing Direction

  • Engineering education accreditation and establishing mechanisms for continuous improvement of teaching.
  • Set the direction of development according to industry trends.
  • Emphasize research and development to encourage industry-university cooperation.
  • Step by step curriculum planning with a focus on developing students' abilities. 
  • Continuously improve teaching quality.
  • Actively involved in academic activities to promote international academic exchanges.

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, with equipment which is able to meet the requirements of teachers for teaching and research. 
The department set three research focus areas based on the needs of teachers and industry: Interactive multimedia applications, Wisdom of life science and technology" and "Internet technology and applications." 
There are also three research focus areas, set as a key development direction for the department:

Interactive multimedia applications  

  1. Image and video processing:  the scientific and technological progress century, the rapid popularization of digital images, popular audio video applications such as: Flickr, Picasa, YouTube and other websites are rising. This field will focus on image and video processing technology and the practical application. In addition, the video and image processing also concern the relevant media and the extending technologies. The rise of the digital home Has created many opportunities for the 3C industry including entertainment products such as DVD recorders, digital TV / STB, PMP and other digital audio and video products.
  2. Audio processing: The main focus in this area is on speech and music classes, compression encoding, and noise control. Speech deals with compression coding such as ITU standards music deals with the frequency domain and psychoacoustic considerations for compression coding such as MPEG standard MP3 and AAC .
  3. Multimedia Security: A major problem with digital multimedia is copyright issues. The main purpose of digital multimedia security is to protect the image and integrity of digital multimedia for the declared real owner.
  4. Multimedia Entertainment: The most popular department in 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 to computer vision, computer graphics, image processing of, and 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 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, clear, and very useful information dug out from databases 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. Artificial intelligence and neural network technology are all common mining technology.
  3. Medical Information: Medical information is a combination of information technology and medical applications.  The major medical industries and institutions have been combined with information technology related products and services such as electronic medical records management system, clinical diagnosis support systems, patient monitoring systems and automatic interpretation of medical imaging and diagnostic aid system. The medical service market requires a large demand for medical and information interdisciplinary talents. It is the goal to nurture IT personnel across medicine in both areas, theory and teaching in the art.
  4. Embedded Systems: With the development of chip design and manufacturing technology and the Internet, many high-tech products emphasize the wisdom of nature. This requires a lot of embedded systems and technical personnel. In a Jufan network equipment, digital audio systems, mobile phones, PDA, digital cameras, vehicle information and control electronics are all developed by embedded systems. 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. We aim to study 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 course is to teach students field systems development capability for mobile devices and embedded systems. Therefore, students attending basic programming courses will receive three main types of training , including: embedded systems programming, programming mobile devices, embedded driver design implementations. After attending these courses, students will have competitive skills for employment or further study.
  3. Information Security: We offer cryptography, network security which includes wireless and mobile security, e-commerce safety, and a preliminary understanding of hacker and defense technology.  
  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 will have database programming, web system design, and software system development for employment or further studies.

 Career opportunity

  The information industry has become the main driving force for economic development so demand for talent is quite high. 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, these graduates are highly recognized whether they are studying abroad or entering the service industry.
