Our Department's specialty is in the teaching and research of communication technologies. Our secondary focus is in printing & publishing technology and video technology. The following are emphasized by the Department to support our focus:

Balanced approach to communication technology and humanities: Students enrolled with our department come from either category 2 or technological/vocational schools, with most coming from industrial technology backgrounds. The curriculum is designed to give equal emphasis to technology and humanities, so the courses are divided into five categories: printing, communication, information, education and design.

Close industry-academia partnership: To realize the full potential of our expertise in graphics art communication technology, the Department works closely with the industry in both teaching partnerships as well as joint long-term research projects (examples include the "Image Processing Research Program" with the Atomic Energy Council; basic research conducted into "Surround Environment (Virtual Reality)" and "Text Recognition (Computer Scanning)" by teachers jointly funded by the Institute of Information Science, Academia Sinica; collaborating on the "Image-based Anti-Counterfeit Recognition Technology Research Project" with the Central Engraving and Printing Plant (part of the Central Bank); as well as joint symposiums or in-service training courses). The Department also offers an in-service master's program for academics or workers involved with communication technology looking for further development.

Support national requirements and industry trends: Our Departments conduct research and training for communication applications technology in support of the "Image Display Industry" and the "Digital Content Industry".

Local and overseas academic exchanges and partnerships: Overseas speakers and international academic symposiums are regularly hosted by the Department, with overseas academics invited to participate as well. The Department has carried out academic collaborations on topics such as "History of Printing Culture and Technology" as well as "Research into the Restoration Technology for Metal Type Production" with the Institute of Natural Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. We have also established sound teaching partnerships with academic organizations involved with the cultivation of technical expertise for the domestic publishing and video media industries. Student exchange programs have also been set up with other schools.

Balanced approach to theory and practice: Apart from theory-based courses, our Department also offers practical classes taught by experts in the industry. In academic research: The Department of Graphics Art Communication currently has 20 full-time/part-time (including joint appointments) faculty members of assistant professor grade and above. They are all experts in their respective specialties and boast high-level academic qualifications. The department faculty has now established three research disciplines (groups) each made up of 5 to 8 part-time teachers. They will provide guidance to research students engaged in pioneering communication technology research.
