The research areas of "Graduate Institute of Applied Science and Technology" (GIAST) cover cross-cutting fields in biomedical engineering (PhD), digital learning and science education(PhD/Master), color and illumination technology (PhD), technology policy and law (PhD) and energy technologies (PhD/Master). The curriculum and research activities are diverse and dynamic.


This graduate institute initiated many of the graduate programs that later became part of the College of Engineering in 1997 when NTIT was upgraded to university status. In 2008, this graduate institute became part of the Honors College and continues to perform its original role as an incubator, providing resources and support for the development of new interdisciplinary graduate programs. In August 2011, the institute was renamed as the ‘Graduate Institute of Applied Science and Technology’. The institute emphasizes on fundamental sciences, education, and applied technologies. The mission of the institute is to foster individuals who are well trained in several disciplines including: energy and material technology, biomedical engineering, color, imaging and illumination, science education and e-learning. There are currently 10 full-time professors and 5 project-appointed instructors, including 3 international faculty. The research interests of the faculty cover a comprehensive range of disciplines including nanomaterials, biomedical materials, energy and environmental technology, semiconductor materials and measurements, biomechanics, energy policy, applied chemistry and physics, science education and e-learning.

Programme Structure

The mission of the program is to stimulate research at NTUST in the area of materials, and to facilitate collaboration between the university and industry. The program enables collaboration between professors from several departments including Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Polymer Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Construction Engineering. In Graduate Institute of Engineering we provide a Material Science and Technology Group for master students and a Material Science and Technology Program for doctoral students.

Within the program we have 6 academic staff. Twenty-eight joint faculty members are affiliated with the Program, with the professors from the departments of Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Polymer Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Construction Engineering.
