Flat panel display (FPD) has gradually replaced the traditional cathode ray tube because of its lightness, thinness and low radiation emissions. FPD is now an important part of the optoelectronic industry. In recent years, optoelectronic devices made of organic and polymer materials have received much attention from the academic world and industries, as these materials are considered the next-generation material for FPDs. On the other hand, nanotechnology is viewed in America as the fourth industrial revolution. Nanotechnology, biotechnology and information technology are regarded as “nationally crucial techniques" in the 21st century. Taiwan also takes nanotechnology development as one of its imperative economic development strategies. Taiwan has striven to expand technological fields in recent years and the country has become one of the leading centers for manufacturing display devices and systems. Executive Master of Optoelectronic Technology is a program that focuses on optoelectronic materials and devices while helping to develop professionals in optoelectronic materials and devices, semiconductor materials and devices as well as nano-optoelectronic materials and devices.
-Development of high-level professionals in the light of technical trends
-Enhancement of central Taiwan's technology industry development
Our laboratories support the research and teaching of graduate and undergraduate studies. At present, we have labs as follows:
-Analog Integrated Circuit and System Design Lab
-On the basis of the current development of the optoelectronic industry in Central Taiwan Science Park and urgent market demand for human resources in fields such as flat panel display, lighting materials and a systematic integration of optical devices, the Program aims at fostering specialists who are able to work in the optoelectronic field immediately after graduation.
-Integrating faculty members from the Department of Applied Material and Optoelectronic Engineering, the Department of Electrical Engineering, the Department of Applied Chemistry, the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering for interdisciplinary research and collaboration. The Program helps improve students’ ability and expertise in interdisciplinary devices and system integration, thus increasing their competitiveness.
Elective courses cover optoelectronic semiconductor materials and devices, flat panel display and circuit design, principles of semiconductor lasers and system application, optoelectronic measuring techniques, optoelectronic sensors and front-end circuit design, LED characteristic analysis and driving circuit design, photovoltaic design, advanced electronics, special topics and seminars for thesis. The design of this curriculum is based on fundamental optoelectronic theories, electrical engineering design and system integration.
