Thanks to the development of engineering technology, the problems encountered in human life can be solved through technological innovations, such as sustainable and secure environments in the face of energy scarcity and climate change and other smart technologies. In Taiwan, the Executive Yuan has launched a series of research and improvement projects related to sustainable disaster prevention and extreme weather damage to national territory. In recent years, in order to accelerate industrial transformation and upgrades, the five plus two innovative industries of “Asia’s Silicon Valley,” “Intelligent Machinery,” “Green Energy Technology,” “Biotechnology and Medicine,” “National Defense Industry,” “New Agriculture,” and “Recycling Economy” have been selected as the core for driving the growth of next-generation industries in Taiwan, with to the goal of achieving the vision of a digital nation, smart island, high-value service industry, non-nuclear home, and energy saving and carbon reduction.

The development of these new industries, which are vital to both the nation and overall society, requires interdisciplinary innovative talents with integration ability. However, the curriculum of existing engineering departments is primarily focused on cultivating professionals, and the current curriculum structure cannot accommodate students who are interdisciplinary and self-teaching learners. The university is a comprehensive research university with disciplines covering the fields of humanities, science and technology, management, law and politics, etc. In terms of teaching improvements, the University has recently taken measures at both the university and the department level by coordinating inter-institutional curricula, establishing interdisciplinary programs, improving the curriculum. etc. Therefore, the School of Engineering has established a bachelor’s degree program that integrates the existing courses of the university and inter-departmental courses and some university-level courses to guide students to develop independent thinking, independent learning, interdisciplinary teamwork and communication, and problem-solving skills, as well as to provide students with additional skills in such interdisciplinary fields as “intelligent machinery,” “energy materials,” “sustainable disaster prevention,” and “green technology” through a comprehensive and carefully planned curriculum. In order to improve the effectiveness of interdisciplinary learning, this program emphasizes hands-on teaching and learning, and students are assigned a mentor professor after their sophomore year to guide them in course selection and projects so that they can learn through a problem- and project-oriented approach.
