本院以研究基礎科學為主,亦重視應用科學及建教合作,合作研究的機關計有教育部、行政院國科會、台中榮總、各國家公園管理處、行政院環保署、各縣市政府環保局、工業技術研究院和民營企業公司等。教師們常在國內外具水準的期刊發表論文,並參加重要的學術研討會。此外,本院每年出版學術期刊「東海科學」。

 

 

經由本院整合籌畫申請成立之校級研究中心包括生命科學研究中心、奈米 科技研究中心、軟體工程技術中心以及熱帶生態學與生物多樣性研究中心;目前各中心皆積極發展相關業務。

 

 

The college of Science was one of the original two colleges which formed Tunghai University when it was founded in 1955. At present the College consists of the four departments of Physics, Chemistry, Life Science, and Mathematics. All have Master's degree programs, and each has its areas of expertise. The Life Science Department and Chemistry Department also has a Ph.D. program. Physics Department will has a Ph.D. program in 2010.

This college presently has about 191 graduate students and 1395 undergraduates. The student body is served by 68 full-time faculty, of whom 98% have Ph.D. degrees. The faculty are not only committed to academic excellence in their own field, but also to teaching students in and out of class. This fosters close teacher-student relationships which thereby strengthens the quality of education.

Education and research are linked with experimentation and practice. The planned Basic Science Building and Labtory Building is now completed. Its appearance conforms the style of the campus, and their equipment meets the needs of modern education, improving the adequacy of the College's space facilities. Although the College considers the study of basic scientific theory as its first priority, it also emphasizes application and cooperation with industry and government. Cooperating agencies include the National Science Council, Taichung Veterans' General Hospital, Yushan National Park.

The College currently has 26 teaching assistants, many of whom have Master's degrees. They assist the educational process with both instruction and academic mentoring, teaching lab courses and homework discussion.

Each of the 68 teachers has his or her own specialty, carrying on research in the lab or office. In addition to providing for graduate students' research, faculty often attend conferences and present research results.

This College emphasizes an atmosphere of academic research. In addition to the above listed cooperative research projects, each department publishes a department journal for students. Faculty not only publish in professional journals in Taiwan and elsewhere, they also contribute articles to each issue of the Tunghai Science.

Ever since the founding of the college of Science in 1955, each Dean has cared for the quality of our faculty and labored to establish and improve an environment which encourages faculty development. In this way, the college can provide a higher standard of scientific research as well as more and better-qualified research personnel for the nation and the society.

 

   Full Brief History

 


 

本院于公元1955年东海大学创办时即成立,目前计有应用物理、化学、生命科学及应用数学等四个学系,均设有硕士班,且各具规模和特色;其中,生命科学系、化学系和应用物理系设有博士班。

 

 

本院现有专任教师66位,均具博士学位,各具专长且教学认真严谨,师生关系密切,注重身教与言教。本院现有助教22人,多具硕士学位,亦师亦友地协助教学,与老师共同带领学生实验或演练,共同切磋;另有协助院、系行政之职员6人。

 

2001年正式启用的科技大楼,容纳应用物理和应用数学系;2005年正式启用的基础科学实验馆内设物理、化学生科实验教室及标本室等,其外观设计配合本校之校园风格,内部设备符合现代教学的需求,使本院的空间和设备更臻完善。

 

院教学以培养基础科学人才为目标,并同时开设多元化的课程,陶冶学生以贡献社会。教师依个人专长,设立专题研究室。教师之研究成果,常发表于国内外著名学术期刊,及本院学术期刊「东海科学」中。各学系亦出版系刊供学生发表学习及研究心得。

 

 

本院虽以研究基础科学的理论为主,但亦重视应用及建教合作。研究计划多来自科技部、农委会、林务局、台中荣总及雪霸、玉山国家公园管理处等机构。

 

本院自设立以来,历任院长无不擘划经营,对制度之建立、师资阵容之加强,均悉力以赴,不仅提高科学研究水平,亦为国家培育更多科技人才。
