1. Have the analyzing and applied ability toward basic math and physics.
Courses: Calculus (two terms), Physics (two terms), Physical Experiment (two terms)
2. Have the appreciative ability toward culture, arts and music. Strengthen human general education.
Courses: Chinese (two terms), Seminar on General Education (two terms)
3. Realize the operative principle of each machine and sample method.
Courses: Introduction to Computer Science, Programming Languages, Digital Logic Design, Digital Logic & Lab, Digital System Design, Digital System & Lab, Introduction to Electronics Engineering, Computer Networks Application, Introduction to Material Science
4. Have the ability of reading English operation manual and technical reports
Courses: English Listening and Speaking (two terms), Digital Logic & Lab, Digital System & Lab.
Middle-term teaching plan (the second and third years of the four-year system):
NFU-DEE course plan mainly has three directions:
1. Integrated Circuit Design and Manufacture
2. Microelectronics and Electro-optical Engineering
3. Communication Systems
The goal of the whole NFU-DEE middle-term teaching plan is first, to establish basic theory and practical skill toward the three learning directions. Second, cultivate students’ advanced professional skills and research and development knowledge by extending learning depth and width. The detailed middle-term teaching plan of the three directions is as follows:
The educational goal in the second year of the four-year system:
Teach students basic theoretical courses of the three directions and cooperate with professional practice to establish steady foundation.
Common basic theory courses of the three directions:
Electronic basic theory courses include Electronics (two terms), Circuitry (two terms), Advanced Engineering Mathematics (two terms), Computer Structure, Windows Programming, Assembly Language, and Data Structure. These courses make students have basic electronics knowledge and have the ability to learn advanced courses.
Common basic practical courses of the three directions:
Teach students basic electronic circuits lab (Electronics Lab-two terms) and printed circuit board design lab to make all students have the basic skill of circuit actual operation, analysis, and test and to establish the ability of circuit of practical circuit research, development, and design. Students take the basic courses of the three directions as the basic knowledge and design facility for their third year, fourth year, graduate school, or future career:
1. Teach simulation of electronic circuits design, microcontroller practice, introduction to semiconductor, and EPGA lab. Expect students to obtain the basic theory and practical knowledge of integrated circuit design and manufacture.
2. Teach electronics material, introduction to semiconductor to make students learn the basic theory of microelectronics and electro-optical engineering.
For those students who have learning difficulty, we take the remedial instruction. Promote students’ required knowledge by a student tutor or the teacher.
The educational goal in the third year of the four-year system:
Taking the basic courses of the second year as foundation, teach the advanced courses of the three directions, to cultivate advanced skill and knowledge. On the other hand, for strengthening professional and practical experience and cooperating students’ learning interests, we start three-term training of practical designated topic from the sixth term. The professors teach students to learn the practical plan demanded by the time and industry, and encourage students to join the cooperation between industry and academia and participate in internal and foreign contests to gain practical experience. Secondly, professors also encourage and guide students to pass the certification examination to promote students’ practical ability and quality.
The educational goal toward integrated circuit design and manufacture
The goal of this stage is to cultivate students to have the basic and advanced theory and practical ability on semiconductors and integrated circuit. The key of course plan focuses on strengthen the professional knowledge on electronic circuit and system design. The courses of this stage are VLSI design, semiconductor device, digital IC model and manufacture, analysis and simulation of integrated circuit, and integrated circuit layout practice. These courses will enable students to have professional knowledge and skill on digital and analog integrated circuit and system design, integrated circuit test, and circuit design assisted by computer.
The educational goal of microelectronic and photo-electricity engineering
The goal of this stage is to cultivate students to have the basic theory and practical ability toward microelectronic and photo-electricity engineering. The key of course plan focuses on signal and system enhancement and digital signal disposal system design. The courses of this stage are electronics, semiconductor physics, introduction to photo-electricity engineering, and modern physics. These will enhance students to have basic and advanced professional knowledge and skill toward research and design of digital signal processing, fuel battery manufacture, and photo-electricity engineering.
The educational goal of communication system
The goal of this stage is to cultivate students to have the basic theory and practical ability toward communication system. The key of course plan focuses on analog communication theory and digital signal processing skill. The courses of this stage are signal and system, communication system, digital signal processing, linear algebra, electromagnetic wave, and computer network practice probability and statistics. These will enhance students to have basic and advanced professional knowledge and skill toward communication system, microwave communication, digital signal processing and cable television system.
Middle-term teaching plan (the final year of the four-year system):
NFU-DEE teaching point of courses is to plan professional cultivation, application to digital tools, and practice of Information Management to train students to face the informatization of times. The middle-term teaching plan is based on cultivation of six core abilities and the courses of four years. To enhance students’ ability of evaluation, analysis, and predication, we arrange basic courses and experimental classes to cultivate professional knowledge and practical skill. Besides, students can take optional courses, visit factories, and practice at factories; they cooperate their own interests to choose suitable field such as microwave communication, integrated circuit, Flat Panel Display, IC design, and semiconductor manufacture …etc in the future. Through courses of team experiment, manufacture of designated topic and career ethics, we cultivate students’ communication and coordination ability and mutual respect toward team work spirits. Secondly we encourage students to participate in internal and foreign academic discussions, and international creative competitions …etc related activities to shape students’ international eyesight. Effectively make use of skill education and procedures to let students care about public affairs and understand the mutual relationship with the environment; thus enhance the required knowledge, attitude, skill and values for how to improve the environment. Make them form the habits of concern environment, respect the nature, cherish natural resources, and save the energy resources. Hope students to have positive, optimistic and selfless characters to benefit the society to have a great and clean living and learning environment.
