About the Department

Message from the Chairman

Welcome to visit Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME), Chang Gung University (CGU), Taiwan. Our department was established in 1996 with a goal of “combination of practical engineering and theoretical knowledge”. CGU is dedicated to providing a good environment for education and research in mechanical engineering. We are committed to cultivating future global leaders in mechanical engineering and pursuing state-of-the-art technologies for research excellence. To achieve this goal, the problem-based learning (PBL) will be involved in our courses. In addition, we actively promote cooperative researches with industries such as Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Formosa Plastics Group and so on. Students are encouraged to participate in the cooperative project and apply the knowledge from classroom to solve problems of the industrial sector. Moreover, our PBL coursework is designed to expand students’ vision to the other interdisciplinary areas, besides the fundamental engineering discipline. Students are nurtured to be mechanical professionals with interdisciplinary knowledge and innovation mindset for dealing with a variety of challenging issues of Industry 4.0 in the future. We currently have 13 faculty members and approximately 160 students in our department. The high faculty to student ratio allow us to provide a more comprehensive traning of our students.
On behalf of the Chairman of ME, I thank you for visiting our online community. We are looking forward to your joining in the near future. If any question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
