The International Curriculum for Advanced Materials Program is offered by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at National Cheng Kung University.


The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at National Cheng Kung University has good learning environment and comprehensive faculty members. Our research fields include advanced materials, metal materials, ceramic materials, polymer materials, composite materials, optoelectronic and electronic materials, biomedical materials, energy materials, magnetic materials, high-temperature superconducting materials, surface treatment technologies, advanced characterization technologies, and computer-aid material science.    

Breakthroughs in science and technology often are in connection with the development, testing and improvement of new materials. Material science has been regarded by the government and industries as key and fundamental science for all engineering technologies and industries. It is an interdisciplinary study of physics, chemistry and mathematics, while keeping fundamental theories and engineering applications tie in. As a result, material science is very important in the development of various industries. In responding to the fast changing trend of international or domestic industries while maintaining NCKU’s goal of becoming the top world university, our Department will continue to carry out measures of curriculum reform, facility improvement and internationalization to cultivate students with more excellent skills and technology needed by future materials fields and industries and keep abreast of standards of top educational institutes and research units in the future.   


International Curriculum for Advanced Materials Program graduates have been showing their excellencies in various fields including academic world, steel industry, oil refining industry, electronic industry, medical industry and manufacturing industry. Our alumni have received good reputation in helping each other and showing great spirit of team work in the job field, making them the top pick for most companies in Taiwan.
