☆☆☆☆Faculty Position at Institute of Environmental Engineering ☆☆☆☆

INTRODUCTION

The National Sun Yat-Sen University (NSYSU) is located in Kaohsiung City, center of the largest and most successful industrial sectors in Taiwan. The campus is on the coastal bay of Kaohsiung harbor and famous for its beautiful scenery. In order to deal with the environmental impacts resulting from the rapid economic growth and industrial development in Taiwan, the Institute of Environmental Engineering was established in August 1991. The chief objectives of the Institute are to :

  • cultivate advanced environmental engineers and researchers; 

  • conduct fundamental researches and enhance applied technologies; and 

  • provide services in both the technical projects and extended education. 

After eight years of development, the Institute has become one of the nation’s leading environmental research and education center with distinguished faculty and superb academic programs. Currently, there are six full-time faculty members, two adjunct faculty members, two full-time technical staffs, two administrative assistants, eight full-time research assistants, and 40 graduate students, including 11 in doctoral program. 

The faculty members, received their doctoral degrees in the environmental-related fields from well-known universities, have national and local reputations in teaching and research. The total
value of the Institute's research contracts and grants now exceeds 9,000 millions with annual 
research expenditures of approximately 2,000 millions.

In the pages that follow, you will learn in more detail regarding the programs we provide and why we are so extraordinarily proud of our Institute. But words and pictures, however vivid, are no substitute for first-hand experience. We encourage you to make a trip to our Institute, to visit the faculty and staffs, and to see for yourself the exceptional opportunities for graduate study, extended education, professional services, and cooperative programs available at our Institute.

A.Education Program 
The Institute of Environmental Engineering offers graduate curriculum and research training leading to advanced degrees of Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). The education program is aimed to cultivate advanced environmental engineers with the capabilities of independent research, technical development, policy-making, and the leadership. 

B.Research Program 
Research areas of emphasis include air pollution control technology, air and waste incineration, deodorizing, solid and liquid wastes treatment, resources recycling technology, remediation of contaminated soils and groundwater, and water resource management. Both fundamental and 
applied researches are equally emphasized.

C.Service Program 
The Institute accepts contract projects from governments, research institutes, public organizations,and private companies. The projects include research, management, investigation, analysis, and assessment. In addition, several short-term on-job training and extended education programs are provided for the off-campus persons.
