College of Mechanical and IT Engineering

Department of Electronic Engineering

Introduction

Modern society is turning into a ubiquitous information society in the 21st century.

Electronic engineering is a principal part in the ubiquitous information technology (IT). Thus, the major focuses on producing professional engineers who can adapt well to the rapidly changing global environment with good creativity and leadership. To meet the educational goal, the major is trying to help the students obtain a broad understanding of the key concepts for the basic and advanced fields such as semiconductor devices, sensors and the system, analog and digital circuits, integrated circuits and systems, designs for integrated circuits, microwave engineering and communication, signal processing and communication systems, image processing, optoelectronic devices and the system, control and automation, computer architecture and programming, and other IT-related subjects. The major is also equipped with sufficient research facilities and experimental equipments to improve the quality of education and research. The harmonious education system, which consists of experiments and their simulations with software and theoretical lectures, produces very competitive and creative engineers.

SEMINAR FOR ACADEMIC LIFE
1. Summary of the course This course is to assist university freshmen in CRM designing to adapt university life well through the instruction and counselling of supervising professor. (This course is composed of self analysis, personality type test, career research, instruction for the success of university life, career plan and direction setting, CRM designing method and CRM designing. The course should be teaching in classes of the students by supervising professor.) 2. Course objectives This course is to motivate the students before the mid term exam and provide students with self analysis, personality type test (MBTI or TCI) and career research (YAT test). Also, this course shall has a plan to instruct the students to enhance the efficiency of university life through career and time management. In addition, this course is to make a chance for the students to have practical assistance to university life by providing study method, report designing strategy and the information on academic system and various kinds of internal programs of the university. After the mid term exam, the students will be instructed to set the direction of career designing through continuous counselling of supervising professor and the students will be able to establish CRM designing and execution plan.
