Welcome to the Department of Engineering and System Science at National Tsing Hua University. The department was established in 1964. Its original name was "The Department of Nuclear Engineering". We offer programs leading to the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. For the past 40 years, we have developed more than 3,500 students with solid engineering background. The department is one of the leading multi-disciplinary engineering programs in Asia now.
Currently the department has around 40 faculty directing advanced research, and offering undergraduate and graduate courses. Courses and research focus on three major areas, including Nano-technology & MEMS, Nuclear & Energy Engineering and Engineering Physics. Research within these three groups is vibrant and attracts more than $3 million USD investment each year. NTHU ESS attracts excellent students, and our graduates are sought by industry and commerce around the world.
For more information, please see the ESS brochure.
