Department History

Responsive image

    The Department of Communication Engineering, originated from the Communication Group of the Department of Electrical Engineering in the preceding decades, was established as the Institute of Communication Engineering in 2000, and then formally established in 2003. The Department of Communication Engineering is currently divided into two teaching and research groups: Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) Group and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Group, which owns 15 full-time teachers, including 10 professors, 4 associate professors and 1 assistant professor. According to the student status record in 2022, the total number of students enrolled in the department (including master's and doctoral students and master's program degree students)is about 450.

    The teaching environment of the Department of Communication Engineering is located in Engineering Hall 2 and Building B of Engineering Hall 5, with a total space of about 3701.49 meter squared. The teaching and research space includes: 8 teaching classrooms, 6 teaching laboratories, 26 teacher and graduate research laboratories, and 1 exclusive reading room for undergraduate students.

Department Features

    Based on the fact that the communication engineering is widely used in the two major industries of electrical engineering and information technology, the communication engineering expertise needs to strengthen above two specialized abilities in addition to its own communication knowledge. Since 2021, the department has been divided into two teaching and research (T&R) groups: Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) Group and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Group, according to the requirements of undergraduate teaching and teachers’ research majors. The students pursuing their BS degrees are required to (MUST) have complete engineering mathematics training and basic electrical course literacy in the undergraduate courses, and can freely choose to focus on either electrical engineering (EE) or information engineering (IE) related majors as their backgrounds in microelectronics engineering or information technology according to their own interests. In the third (junior) year, the communication engineering specialized courses such as communication principles, communication experiments, and independent studies are compulsory for all BS degree pursuing students. In addition, students in the Department of Communication Engineering will honor their BS's degrees after completing any group of required department compulsory credits and 132 graduation credits.

    Recently, the faculty of the Department of Communication Engineering has actively organized a diversity of research teams to guide graduate students to study the following topics for teaching development and integrated research projects: B5G/6G wireless communication physical layer technology, software-defined radio (SDR) platform communication system implementation, low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellite communication technology, artificial intelligence in multimedia and Internet of Things (AIOT) technology, cloud service and mobile computing, embedded system and mobile device application design, and B5G/6G wireless network.
