The Department was established in 1974.
Industrial Engineering students are encouraged to take courses from other Departments throughout the University. In particular, special emphasis is given to courses provided by the Departments of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Economics. Students are also encouraged to take courses from integrated areas such as Semiconductor Industries and Manufacturing, Quantitative Finance, Environment and Safety, and Electronic Commerce. Training in these integrated areas provides students with specialized skills that are essential for ensuring economic competitiveness in these critical areas.
The IEEM program at NTHU is of high quality and very broad. This department is likely to be the best industrial engineering program in Asia, as commented by an international reviewer during our recent departmental review.
