The Department is the former Computer Science Sector of the Department of Electronic Engineering which was established in 1973. The sector was separated from the Department and became independent as “Department of Information and Computer Engineering” in the August 1981.
In 1991, the Institute of Information and Computer Engineering was established. In 1993, the Doctorial program of the Information and Computer Engineering was set up as an Information Sector in the Doctorial program of the Electronic Engineering Institute. In 2005, the Institute of Information and Computer Engineering for Continuing Education was also established.
Before 1973, Dr. Huang Yungwen, Dr. Huang Tientzu, Dr. Hsiung Shenkan and Dr. Yang Shi-Nin had successively been the deans of the Department of Electronic Engineering, thus head of the Information and Computer Sector. After 1973, the deans had been successively officiated by Dr. Yang Shi-Nine, Dr. Wang Huang-San, Dr. Hsieh Tsai-Ming, Dr. Chung Bin-Shyan, Dr. Liu Chung-Shyan, Dr. Hsia Yen-Teh and Dr. Tu Chu-Kuei. Currently, the office dean is Dr. Tsai Ming-Dar. Under the leadership of all successive deans, all plans of the department have been implemented swimmingly.
Every year the Department holds two 4-year daily undergraduate classes and one master class and about 157 students were enrolled. In the year 2004, the department had 535 students. We hope the Doctorial program of the Information and Computer Engineering can be separated from the Doctorial program of the Electronic Engineering Institute.
