    Course design

    This department is established to train students about computer science and information engineering. As a result, the course is designed according to following principles:

    • Theory complemented with implementation
    • Computer science and information technology and its application
    • Emphasize on implementation and laboratory work

    There are 12 implementations topics in our department:
    1. Computer-aided VLSI design
    2. Information security
    3. Computer organization
    4. Artificial intelligence
    5. Computer network
    6. Multimedia system
    1. Software engineering + object-oriented system
    2. Distributed system + operating system design
    3. Compiler
    4. Database system
    5. Digital voice processing
    6. Image processing

    Course development and features

    For fresh students, we provide courses which introduces the basic theory of computer science and information engineering(e.g. basic program design and computer organization). Besides, we also have general education (e.g. Mandarin and history) and basic mathematics course (e.g. calculus、Linear Algebra and general physics). With basic knowledge in computer science and information engineering, students can choose diverse extended mathematics courses and computer information technology application courses in our department:

    • Computer science related mathematics courses (e.g. discrete mathematics、engineering mathematics and probability and statistics)

    • We divide engineering into software and hardware. Software courses include programming language、algorithm and data structure. Hardware include digital system and computer organization and application

    • Despite the basic and extended courses, professors in our department will teach application courses about their research fields (e.g. computer graphics and game design, artificial intelligence and wireless communication). It aids to train students to implement their basic knowledge in computer science and solve the problems. To make sure that every student is equipped with computer science knowledge and great programming language skill, every graduate student needs to come up with a project which is related to computer science and information engineering.

    Teaching activities and evaluation system

    • With the help of questionnaire survey, we can evaluate the learning result of students and adjust the directions of course development. The grades that students get in the courses are also taken into consideration to know whether the exams and homework are too difficult or not. In this way, we can make sure that students can keep up with course schedule and learn professional knowledge we expect.

    Professor evaluation

    In Cheng Kung University we have a self-evaluation for professors to review whether their courses design is appropriate or not and adjust their directions to improve learning effect

    Students learning result statics and review

    We also have a questionnaire for students to evaluate whether the course contents meet their expectation or not. Students can convey their learning statics and opinions on the course contents through the questionnaire in an anonymous way. This helps professors change their teaching directions to a way which students can learn more efficiently.
