Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Development Characteristics 
The department focuses on four major areas: (1) new technologies for natural disaster prevention, (2) environmental conservation, (3) green engineering, and (4) system engineering. The primary goal of the department is to educate students in the principles and methods essential to the practice and advancement of civil and environmental engineering. We also strive to lay the future path for this combined discipline. By continually developing new knowledge and fostering intelligent use of limited resources, our students will become successful practitioners, innovators, and leaders to build a high quality society.

To provide students with a solid foundation in both civil and environmental engineering that enables them to pursue an advanced degree and to enter the professional practice of engineering upon graduation.
To implement government’s overall industrial goals and policies and develop innovative technologies in researching society’s needs.
To educate students with engineering ethics, effective verbal and writing ability, global vision, teamwork, and life-long learning ability.

Postgraduate Opportunities

Advanced Degree Study
  Graduates may pursue an advanced degree in civil engineering, construction engineering, applied mechanics, environmental engineering (management), and environmental safety health, etc.
Career Opportunities
  Students have a broad array of options available upon graduation. They can work in government, private sectors, engineering consulting, construction, technical agencies, and non-profit research foundations. They can serve as design and plan engineers, environmental analysts, engineering technology researchers, and licensed engineers (structural engineering, civil engineering, environmental engineering, etc.).

Future Outlook
The department is known as the first one to uniquely integrate the specialized fields of civil and environmental engineering in Taiwan. There are thirteen faculty members with excellent credentials from leading institutions around the world. Integral and interdisciplinary collaborations are highly recommended in the department. As a young and energetic department, it is believed that the department will become one of the leading institutes among the filed of civil and environmental engineering. Our students are expected to become successful practitioners, innovators, and leaders in serving the needs of a complex society in Taiwan.
