Program / CEM

Introduction

Taiwan has entered the era of research & development (R&D). Advanced R&D requires compatible private and public facilities. The scope of Construction Engineering and Management (CEM) deals with all the issues of the private and public facilities life-cycled from planning, design, procurement, construction, commissioning, transfer, operations, maintenance, to disposal. CEM is an inevitable part of the chain linking to innovative R&D which will have a profound impact on the future of Taiwan. In order to cope with the challenge, Civil Engineering Graduate School of National Taiwan University (NTU) started to enroll CEM postgraduate students in 1990. In 1998, the Ministry of Education officially approved NTU Construction Engineering and Management program. In addition, Engineering Master of Business Administration (EMBA) in CEM was offered in 2003 to strengthen collaboration between the construction industry and the academic. In recent years high-tech industry has played a crucial role on Taiwan’s technology and economy. To sustain Taiwan high-tech industry, NTU CEM program initiated teaching and research on facilities needed for high-tech R&D&Manufacturing in 2006. Up to 2011, there are around 70 PhD, 240 MS and 150 EMBA students who either had graduated or are presently studying in NTU CEM program.

Learning and Research Environment

Interdisciplinary approach in construction engineering and management is necessary in the 21st century. It requires talents of all kinds to improve the quality of CEM R&D. The talents include, not limited to, the experts from civil engineering, architecture, construction, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, material engineering, medicine, law, management, finance, economy, humanity and arts.

Besides having excellent learning and research facilities, National Taiwan University not only has high quality of students, faculty and staff, but also has the most faculties and departments in Taiwan. Her CEM curriculum and research subjects are specifically designed based on faculty specialties, student interests, the mandatory requirements from Ministry of Education, NTU existing research facilities, and evaluation on many preeminent CEM programs around the world. Seven out of the thirteen faculty members are full-time and the other six are adjunct faculties from industry. All the faculty members have domain expertise and they cover a very broad spectrum of research subjects as follows:

Research Subject
