高雄市乃台灣重工業之中心。中山大學創校之初,深知機械為工業之母,為因應台灣發展工業科技人才之需要,在1982年創立了機械工程系,並於 1983年 成立研究所碩士班,博士班亦於1986年奉准設立,在南台灣積極扮演著培育人才和推動研究發展與產業升級的角色。為因應迅速發展的科技,本系於2001年由「機械工程學系」更名為「機械與機電工程學系」,並積極實踐「生產自動化」、「節約能源、開發與管理」與「微機電系統」之系所發展重點,以符合未來產業發展需求,培育新興工業之尖端人力。


The National Sun Yat-Sen University is located in Kaohsiung, the industrial center of Taiwan. Since mechanical engineering is so-called “mother of industry”, in order to meet the demand of engineers for industrial development, the Department of Mechanical Engineering was founded in 1982, at the initial stage of the University. The Master program and the Ph.D. program were then established in 1983 and 1986, respectively. Since then, the Department plays a significant role in southern Taiwan on professionals cultivation, promotion of research and development, and industry upgrading. In response to the rapid progress on science and technology, a new title for the Department, Mechanical and Electro-Mechanical Engineering, was also approved in 2001. The Department actively moulds cutting-edge engineers by educating students with the state-of-the-art technologies, especially on "Production Automation", "Energy Saving, Development and Management" and "Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems" to fulfill the need of future development of industries.

For the purpose of reaching international standards of educational quality, the Department had been certified through accreditation of IEET, a Full Signatory of the Washington Accord, in 2007 and 2014. Furthermore, we also received the Outstanding Mechanical Organization Award from Kaohsiung Branch of the Chinese Society of Mechanical Engineers in 2008 and 2013.



Research Areas

The Department of Mechanical and Electro-Mechanical Engineering is divided into five research groups: Thermo-Fluid, Solid Mechanics, Control, Design and Manufacturing, and Micro-Nano Systems. Not only basic theories, laboratory practices and engineering applications are involved in our classes. We also hold annual projects demonstration & competition and various factory tours to consolidate students’ engineering knowledge and skills. Whether further advanced studies or employment after graduation, competitive strength and capability of our students is definitely assured. Current research topics include: micro heat transfer and mechanics analysis, fabrication of micro fluidic devices, energy saving and energy engineering, analysis of microscopic mechanics, semiconductor packaging technology, integrated opto-electro-mechanical practices, micro-nano inspection technology, ultra-precision machining technology, integration and applications of micro-nano technology, green energy, biomedical electro-mechanical systems, smart robots, intelligent vehicle systems and other related fields. Consequently, Taiwan's traditional machinery industry can be transformed and promoted to a higher level and international competitiveness will be enhanced.



There are six major teaching laboratories including: Machine Shop, Thermal-Fluids Laboratory, Material Testing Laboratory, Electronics Laboratory, Control Laboratory and MEMS Fabrication Processing Laboratory. Besides, each faculty member owns an independent research laboratory. In total, 29 research laboratories, 10 teaching laboratories, 19 classrooms and meeting rooms, and 1 study room are offered to create a good learning environment. Cooperating with Joint Center for High Valued Instrument of NSYSU, advanced research equipment and instruments are provided for students to achieve synchronous learning with industry. These facilities help our students working in high tech fields after graduation with 100% employment rate.
