Department of Information Management

The Department of Information Management was established in 1998.  In the same year, we introduced an undergraduate program that granted admissions to approximately 50 students per year. The graduate program, awarding the M.S. degree, was established in 2000 to meet the growing need of professionals.  This program aims to provide with multidisciplinary training in both Information Technology (IT) and management. In 2003, the admissions to undergraduate program grew to 100 students per year. In the same year, the professional graduate program in Executive Management Information Systems was set up to cultivate mid- to high-level officers or executives from industry.  Both theoretic knowledge and practical training are provided in this professional graduate program.

The department’s educational goal is to “train and support future IT-professionals by providing solid theoretical training and hands-on practice opportunities, with a view to building integrated information systems that may serve in business, industry, and medicine.” With emphasis on the combination of “information technologies” and “management theories,” students are required, before graduation, to participate in the development of innovative and integrated software systems.  It is our expectation to see our students apply what they learn in class to real life.

The current research focus of the department includes:

  1. Biomedical informatics
  2. Identification technology and Information security
  3. Emerging technology and applications in management

The faculties are actively involved in multi-disciplinary research projects in the fields of computer science, informatics, and management. Various application-oriented subjects are also drawing the attention and interest of our academic staffs.  These subjects include medical informatics, biomedical Informatics, electronic business, information security, information security audit, cryptography, e-finance, wireless communication, data mining, cluster computation, distribution computation, information quality, software engineer and quality management, medical image, image process, image retrieval, reliability analysis of network, computerized integration production system, object-oriented modeling, multi-objective decision, fuzzy logic, knowledge management, computer-aided learning, and artificial neural network, etc.
