There are very good reasons you should study Automation Engineering at Taipei Tech: 

We have a good tradition of traininautomation engineers

The Automation Technology Center (ATC) was formally established in 1991; it has accomplished many achievements and obtained great reputations in industrial applications, academic researches and education for many years. Therefore after ATC, Graduate Institute of Automation Technology (GIAT) was formally established in Sep, 2000 with the approval of Taiwan's Ministry of Education. The main goal of the GIAT is to "integrate the technologies in the areas of engineering, hardware and software in order to promote and educate the automation technology for industrial applications".

GIAT provides graduate programs and offers MS degree, Ph.D. degree for full time student, and MS degree for part-time student. There are about 145 graduate students in GIAT. The faculty of GIAT includes assistant professors, associate professors and professors with expertise in the areas of mechanical electronic engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, computing and industrial engineering etc (click here for more details about the Academic Staff ; click here for more details about gained Awards & Honors).
