Introduction to the Department of Information Management

 

In response to the advent of the knowledge-based economy era, after restructuring into an institute of technology in 2000, the school has been committed to the institute operation guideline of “developing key features and key breakthroughs”. From the seven divisions before the restructuring, today, we have become an academic system of three research institutes, three colleges, and 11 departments. There are around a total of 4,600 students, and we are gradually moving toward the goal of becoming an university of science and technology.

 

The Department of Information Management was established in 2002. Since its founding, our talent cultivation goal has been “smart lifestyle and value-added innovation”. It is supplemented by two main developmental approaches - “cloud service innovation and application” and “smart business innovation and application”, in order to construct and enrich the learning content of the "smart lifestyle and value-added innovation". We also pursue an educational atmosphere imbued with humanistic care and professional ethics, and we are committed to providing a high-quality learning environment with full of enthusiasm and positive interaction. We hope to cultivate information talents with a sound character, as well as innovative practice and management.

Features of the Department

The development direction of the department focuses on the integration of information technology and business management, emphasizing the cooperation between theoretical methods and practical applications. We focus on the importance of research and development of inter-disciplinary technology integration, and carry out interdisciplinary course integration. In the future, we will actively move toward the four major goals: (1) Recruit experts and scholars in various fields to strengthen the department faculty. (2) Work together with companies in nearby industrial areas to strengthen internship cooperation with the industry. (3) Improve teaching and research standards and hold academic internship seminars. (4) Participate in international academic exchanges, expand international outlook, and move towards globalization. With the development goal of “smart lifestyle and value-added innovation”, and “cloud service innovation and application" and “smart business innovation and application” as the main focus of development, the department has planned two major development areas of expertise: “Cloud Virtual Integration” and “Smart Service Integration”. Through the curriculum module and learning guidance mechanisms, we hope to cultivate information management professionals who can apply everything that they have learned.
