『Doctoral Degree Program of Energy and Battery Technologies』
at Battery Research Center of Green Energy, Ming Chi University of Technology, Taiwan
Introduction to Ph.D. Program
The battery research center of green energy (BRCGE) at Ming Chi University of Technology (MCUT) integrates the multi-disciplinary faculty and on-campus resources to promote potential new academic-industrial cooperation research projects. The faculties of the doctoral degree program are integrated from the College of Environment Resources (Department of Chemical Engineering and Department of Materials Engineering), the College of Engineering (Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Electrical Engineering), and the two university-level Research Centers, i.e., Battery Research Center of Green Energy and Center for Thin Film Technologies and applications.
The Ph.D. degree program combines both practical and theoretical aspects of the inter-disciplinary technologies to establish a forward-looking research team, and provides comprehensive facilities for the doctoral graduate students to develop practice-oriented university-industry cooperative modules. The program also aims to cultivate green-energy technology professionals with engineering knowledge, in particular, Li-ion battery and solar cell, and experience to meet the needs of high-tech green energy battery industries after graduation.
The doctoral degree program focuses on the research and development (R&D) of new energy materials and technologies, dividing into two categories: new generation of lithium-ion battery (LIB) technology and cutting-edge solar cell (SC) technology.
