The Institute of Optoelectronic Sciences in the National Taiwan Ocean University was established in 1997. At Present, the institute provides MS study, including the Industrial R&D Master Program, and PhD study, and it thrives energetically.
The objective of the institute is to cultivate advanced optoelectronic talents for the country and industries, strengthen optoelectronic research, and aid relevant marine science with necessary optoelectronic technology.
Currently, the institute aims at nano-optoelectronic applications and integrates with three research focuses, respectively biomedical optoelectronics, display technology, and new cutting-edge technology.
The research directions include
In the future, the institute will hire more teachers with specialties in optoelectronics to further enhance diversified studies. Moreover, the institute will also actively cooperate with the Academia Sinica, the Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, and domestic and international universities to develop the research fields.
Some of the postgraduate students in the institute have an electronic or electrical background while some of them have a physical background. In addition, the students accepted by the institute are less then ten almost every year. Therefore, the accepted students all actively seize the opportunity for learning, and while studying and doing research, they fully help and encourage each other. This forms an excellent learning atmosphere. Furthermore, the student-teacher ratio is less than 7 in the institute, and full-time teachers are encouraged to try their best to provide professional courses, so small-class teaching is applied to most of the classes to achieve optimal learning. In addition to professional courses for different fields, the institute provides the “Advanced Optoelectronic Experiment Project” course, and each laboratory provides research resources for postgraduate students from different laboratories to have chances to understand the research in other laboratories in order to provide them interdisciplinary training and further expand their research vision.

If the postgraduates from the institute choose to pursue further study, they may apply for domestic or international PhD programs in different fields. At present, numerous postgraduates are already doing their PhD study in various universities. If the postgraduates choose to obtain employment, they are also extremely competitive. Currently, industries demand for optoelectronic talents eagerly, so most of the postgraduates will have multiple choices in terms of employment. Although the institute was established in 1997, numerous postgraduates from the institute have already become senior managers. The employers include not only governmental organizations but also various industries, such as companies for semiconductors, light-emitting components, flat panel displays, photovoltaics, bio-optoelectronics, communication components, optoelectronic automation, and nanotechnology.
