Department Highlights

Department Vision


The United Nations launched the “2030 Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs), which propose 17 core objectives for global governments and businesses to strive for sustainable development. Many of these core goals are closely related to chemistry.

Our department offers various career paths, including environmental engineering, materials science, pollution prevention and control, marine chemistry, as well as roles as research and development professionals in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology, and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, our graduates also become teachers at various educational levels. These professions are closely linked to the goals of the SDGs.

Our department plays a vital role in achieving sustainable development by leveraging research, innovation, and the application of chemical knowledge to promote environmental conservation, health, and societal progress in alignment with the United Nations’ SDGs. Collaboration with other relevant disciplines is also crucial as we collectively contribute our efforts towards global sustainable development goals.

Department Highlights

Our department was established in 1955 as one of the four founding departments of the school. In 1999, the Department of Chemistry was divided into two groups: the Chemistry Group and the Materials Chemistry Group, each of which admitted one class. The department also offers master’s and doctoral programs. After more than sixty years of continuous efforts and innovation, the department has developed into a leading institution with first-class faculty and facilities.

Three professors from the department have been ranked among the top 2% of scientists in the world, demonstrating their research excellence. Graduates of the department enjoy a wide range of job opportunities, including research and development, patent work, and teaching positions in semiconductors, biopharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, electronics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and pharmaceuticals. Many graduates also serve in the research and development, production, and management departments of major chemical and chemical engineering companies, occupying a prominent position in the industry. The department has a solid reputation and a large number of outstanding alumni who hold high-level positions in major domestic companies.

Our department emphasizes fundamental chemistry, applied chemistry, and interdisciplinary studies. When students in the undergraduate program move from the second to the third year, they are required to take a research project course and conduct experiments in various laboratories to enhance their theoretical and practical abilities. In addition, the department has four lecturers who specialize in teaching laboratory courses, optimizing the experimental curriculum and providing students with a profound learning experience.

  • Faculty : We have full-time professors who hold doctoral degrees from renowned universities in the US, UK, and Taiwan in chemistry or related fields. The ratio of professors with a Ph.D. is 100%. The adjunct faculty members also have experience working in managerial positions in the chemical industry or research units, ensuring that the teaching of the program is aligned with the demands of the industry.
  • Research : We have established “Research and Development of Novel Nanomaterials” as its research specialty. The faculty integrates their research expertise to apply for interdisciplinary integrated projects. The department also integrates the faculty’s research and student’s project-based learning and research-oriented courses for graduate students.
  • Advanced equipment : We have advanced equipment, such as Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM), Liquid Chromatography-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry (LC-TOFMS), Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR, 400Mhz), Powder X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Single Crystal X-ray Diffraction (SC-XRD), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area and porosity analyzer, Differential Thermal Analysis/Thermogravimetric Analysis (DTA/TGA), and Freeze Centrifuge. These instruments provide excellent teaching and research support.
  • Abundant scholarships : We have provides various scholarships to encourage outstanding academic performance, excellent research performance, and financial aid for students in need. Detailed information about scholarships can be found on the department’s website.
  • Exclusive library : We have exclusive library was established with donations from alumni. It can accommodate ten thousand books, covering diverse subjects, and is divided into reading areas, personal book zones, and computer zones, providing students and faculty with a comfortable and high-quality reading environment.
  • Teaching environment : We have renovated lecture halls and classrooms in recent years, providing students and faculty with a new and comfortable teaching environment.
