The doctorate program is planned on the principle of: To use the basic research ability as a foundation and in combination with advanced core courses on information engineering, the students will be equipped with professional knowledge and can independently analyze and solve problems. Doctorate program students will be trained to have strengthened abilities in discovering problems, independent research, and problem solving.
Advanced elective courses on information engineering include the following major categories, "artificial intelligence", "mobile computing and networks", "knowledge management", "information systems", "multimedia systems", "semiconductor information", and "embedded systems".
- Doctorate program students must take at least 6 courses along with a Doctorate thesis 6 credits and seminar 3 credits, a total of 27 credits to graduate. The graduation requirements for the doctorate program include course requirements, qualification exams, doctorate thesis project oral exam and paper publication.
To pass the qualify exam, the students need to pass 4 subjects out of the 6 subjects that are offered by the department.
