1.2 Degree Programs: Interdisciplinary Curriculum Planning Concept and Characteristic

1. Plan interdisciplinary and team practice courses which focus on advanced applications and system integration, and combine industry practices to cultivate talents with dual expertise with AI computing technology as the core.
2. This program’s course is divided into four areas, including (1) Statistics and Applied Mathematics, (2) Computing in Memory, (3) Semiconductor Circuits and Processes, (4) Basic EECS Courses (Intermediate Former non-EECS students).
3. Leverage the advanced courses in computing/professional fields of existing departments, with course guides and course maps.
4. Some courses will be connected with industry, and teachers with interdisciplinary expertise and industry experts will jointly guide students to implement application topics.
5. There are more than 20 teachers across the colleges of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Engineering, science, and Management.
6. Link industry, academia, and research resources to provide a comprehensive interdisciplinary application-oriented integrated teaching and research environment! 
 

2.1 Regulations:Credits 

1. Graduation requirement: (detailed regulations can be seen in the attachment: Regulations of Doctor of Engineering Degree Program in Intelligent Computing(4 Years), Regulations of Doctor of Engineering Degree Program in Intelligent Computing(5 Years), some of the regulations are divided into EECS and non-EECS backgrounds)
