International Graduate Program for Photonics at UST
International Graduate Program for Photonics at the University System of Taiwan – NCU Campus

In response to the current globally-competitive environment and the increasing demands in human capital in conducting cutting-edge research/technology development, the International Graduate Program for Photonics at the University System of Taiwan (UST) was initiated in Mar. 2011 and is scheduled to start in Aug. 2014. The introduction of outstanding international students who are determined to be successful in the advanced studies and research would bring not only the new lifeblood with different ingredients to the research but also different cultures to stimulate our students who have long been the only species in the classroom.

The International Graduate Program for Photonics at UST, NCU campus, is mainly operated by the Department of Optics and Photonics (DOP). The graduate program in DOP was funded in 1982, formally known as the Institute of Optical Sciences, and is the second oldest graduate institute dedicated in the education and research in optics. The undergraduate program in DOP was established in 2006 and continues to expand in recent years. It currently consists of 22 full-time faculty, 4 jointly appointed professors, and 8 administrative staff and research scientists.

There are 12 major technical interest groups in DOP, ranging from thin-film optics, optical communications, bioimaging, to nanophotonics. In addition, DOP is home to Thin-Film Technology Center and Solid-State Lighting Research Center and also a key player in Optical Science Center, a university-level research center at NCU.

Located in Kwoh-Ting Optics and Photonics Building that is home to more than 50 laboratories, DOP will continue to provide the best educational and research environment to its students.
