The Department of Chemistry and Physics endeavors to provide students with both the knowledge and the tools to begin a life-long passion for scientific discovery and achievement. Our programs promote scientific literacy for all of our students through the development of critical thinking skills, verbal and written communication skills, and the ability to engage in reasoned debate on scientific technological issues that may impact our society. One important aim is to provide the students relevant knowledge to their future working life. Each semester, we organize company visits for our students to enable them to have an insider’s view of global companies located in Taiwan. We encourage students to participate in enterprise or government internships to gain valuable professional experience in their chosen area with connecting the academic experience with real world experience and building students’ professional ability for a competitive advantage in terms of their future employment.
