Our History

The Department of Aerospace Engineering at Tamkang University was founded in 1972, making it the first of its kind among all the universities in Taiwan. Since then, the department has successfully graduated more than two thousand alumni, who are now working in various fields within the aerospace industry. In 1996, the department was renamed from “The Department of Aeronautical Engineering” to “The Department of Aerospace Engineering” and a post-graduate program was established.
