 至公元2006年,中原大學已屆滿50週年。現今工學院的五個系,即化工、土木、機械、醫工、生環;共有大學部學生2,630人,研究生731人,學生總數已達3,361人,是一頗具歷史與規模的工學院。

 有鑑於國內大學、學院數量日增,目前已逾160所,且仍有相當多的專科學校具有高度企圖心要申請改制,未來數量將達180所,而工學院相關科系因為投資大,對畢業學生專業素質要求自然較高,在此情況下,唯恐素質良莠不齊,對科系加以評鑑乃是不可或缺的過程。此外,中華民國已為世界貿易組織(WTO)之一員,與國際間之活動日趨頻繁;工程教育若不能與國際接軌,不接受以國際標準而進行的評鑑與認證過程,勢必造成工程科系畢生全球競爭能力之不足,進而影響產業體質甚巨,造成國力之積弱。因此『工程科技教育國際認證』工作乃勢在必行,無法迴避。

 工學院於此評鑑及認證計畫中,早已於93年接受中華工程教育學會(IEET)屬下之國際工程與科技教育認證小組所發展出的本土化並經國際ABET機構評估、認可之中華民國版本的認證規範AC2004,據以執行此全面而完整的工程教育評鑑,機械系則於94年向中華工程教育學會(IEET)提出認證請求。期能滿足各項認證規範,使工學院各系達到更好的教學內涵,通過中華工程教育學會(IEET)之認證,將 中原大學擠身於全球高品質大學之列。

 參與本計畫之系所及相關教職員生,亦同時參加了國內外與此工程評鑑認證有關之研討會,以融入最新之評鑑資訊並加以落實執行,期待使此評鑑及認證達到更周全之效果。工學院更利用此計畫執行之過程,就國內、外學術評鑑及認證事宜進行資料蒐集,發展適用於本校之評鑑及認證方案,並對院所屬之各系加以評鑑,以了解各系在教學與學術方面之進行狀況及待強化之事項,並提出落實改善方案。此外,本校熊慎幹校長及顧志遠研發長亦親自表達校方全力配合支持『工程科技教育國際認證』之高度意願。因此本計畫在校方、院部及系所充份展現企圖心,與配合支持度的狀況之下,以國內發展出的評鑑及認證方式,吸取國內、外之寶貴經驗與資訊,使本計畫得以順利而周全地完成。

  CYCU has been established for 50 years till 2006. Now, there are five departments in the college of engineering, including Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Bioenvironmental Engineering. It is a college known for its long history and large scale with 2,600 people in the undergraduate program, and 731 in graduate program.

  In recent years, there are more and more universities and colleges are established in Taiwan, which are at proximately 160. In the future, the number might even go up to be more than 180 since that many colleges are eager to apply for becoming universities. However, due to the huge investment in departments related to college of engineering, the requirement of graduated students is relatively high. Under this circumstance, in order to prevent the quality of graduated students being uneven, the evaluation of departments becomes indispensable. Besides, since Taiwan has already become one of the members of World Trade Organization (WTO), the communication among countries is becoming frequent. If the engineering education fail to keep up with other countries and refuse to accept the international evaluation and the process of authentication, the competition of students in Taiwan will be insufficient to those in other countries. Moreover, the quality of industry will be affected, causing the lack of competition of Taiwan. In this case, we must make engineering accreditation work and it is unavoidable.

  The college of engineering in CYCU has accepted the AC2004. In order to make every department of engineering reach to better education, the department of Mechanical Engineering had applied for the commission of being accredited by Institution of Engineering Education Taiwan (IEET) in 2005, expecting to be qualified for every requirement, passing the accreditation by IEET, and make CYCU become one of the top universities in the world.

  The departments, students and teachers that join this project also attend other seminars related to the engineering accreditation in Taiwan and other countries, in order to combine the latest evaluation information and then execute it. In this way, we expect to make the effect of evaluation and accreditation more complete and perfect. What is more, the college of engineering makes use of the process of this project to collect the information of academic evaluation and accreditation in Taiwan and aboard, developing suitable ways for CYCU to evaluate and accreditation. Also, it evaluates the engineering-related departments in order to understand the situation and weakness of teaching and academy. Thus, we are able to propose and to execute the ways for improvement. In addition, both the principle, Wan-Lee Cheng, and the chief of Research and Development Department have indicated that they will be as the name of CYCU to fully support the “Engineering and Technology Education Accreditation” program. Therefore, with the ambition and highly support by school, we use the evaluating and accrediting ways which are developed in Taiwan to absorb the precious experiences and information in Taiwan and other countries, in order to make this project finished successfully and perfectly.
