National Cheng Kung University, Educational History of Mechanical Engineering Department (1931-1971)
As an alumni and a professor I am enthusiastic about the history of ME and concern about the Campus Cultural Assets which were not taken seriously and lost quickly. It is not easy to collect these references and takes about seventeen years to accomplish the complete volume. The book covers three periods, the Japanese-ruled period and the periods after the Second World War, including the Provincial College of Engineering, Provincial Cheng Kung University. The faculty profession, curriculum arrangement, laboratory equipment and the student studying activities were described. Later two periods, the earliest Master Degree of Mechanical Engineering Program of Taiwan. Night School Division establishment and demolishment, the contribution of the faculty members to the military science education, helping the revision of Chinese National Standard(CNS) and the early histories of the new departments from this department, including the Department of Engineering Science, the Department of Naval Architecture and the Department of Aeronautical Engineering.
