The overall goal is to establish an outstanding research center with excellent scholars and facilities to promote interdisciplinary research and to develop advanced graduate programs for fostering new scientists and engineers. The collaborative research comprises the fields of physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering (electrical, chemical and mechanical, etc.), with participating researchers from various universities, Academia Sinica, Industrial Technology and Research Institutes, and Synchrotron Radiation Research Center, etc. Research studies are to be focused on novel materials/structures and new techniques, directly relevant to the industrial development of this country. Therefore, team efforts from basic research to device applications among the academic and the industrial communities are particularly encouraged.
In order to cultivate new generations of R&D experts with interdisciplinary trainings and experiences, we will endeavor to set up graduate curriculum offering M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in emerging topics, such as ”Nanoscience and Nanotechnology”. The teaching and research faculties shall come from this Center and various departments of Science and Engineering Colleges of the University. With planning to be in full operation in six years, we expect this program would eventually involve 45 faculty members, 80 master students, 50 doctoral students, 50 postdoctorals and 30 visiting scholars. Our objective is to establish CCMS as one of the most advanced teaching and research labs in the world.
