Organization of National University of Kaohsiung

  1. 1. Department of Information Management ● Undergraduate Program ○ 2-year Program ● Master Degree Program ○ In-service Master Program ○ Ph.D. Degree Program Development Characteristics The Department of Information Management (IM) was established in 2002. As one of the departments of College of Management in National University of Kaohsiung (NUK), it enrolls a class for undergraduate and graduate program at this stage and will provide Ph.D. program in the near future. Because NUK will be planning to establish a comprehensive university that combines local industries in many fields, the IM department provides both theoretical and practical training in the field of information and knowledge management to cope with international developing trend in the same area. It has been seen that most universities in Taiwan serve for information management department. However, with the increasing need of centurial construction of Asia Pacific trade center, the development of science-based industry parks, as well as software development parks, in southern Taiwan becomes more and more urgent, particularly for the field of information and knowledge management. The establishment of the IM department is offering the southern Taiwan both training programs and research manpower to help in country’s economic development. To realize the blueprint and plan on the key points of future development in the southern Taiwan, particularly in Kaohsiung area, goals are set as follows: To provide advanced informational technology as well as knowledge technology for both enterprises and the government to help achieve effective and efficient management. To provide a global view of process reengineering for the development of both computerized and knowledge-based society. To provide a research forum for the improvement of information and knowledge management, e-commerce, and information systems. To match the government’s policy and southern Taiwan development trend for the training of specialists in the field of information and knowledge management. Besides, the IM department emphasizes the business administration, the software- hardware systematic planning, and the applications of Internet technology. It demands “economicalization,” “time-saving,” “people-saving” and “operation-saving” overall validity. Moreover, information management used in various domains, such as strategic information systems, logistics automation systems, knowledge management systems, service industry management, and financial strategy systems, is also a prominent development direction. For the curriculum design, the IM department covers general information management courses as well as information systems. For the practicum curriculum, the department centers on three facets, including information management and applications, e-commerce, and information systems. The information management 1

Main components for this area are informational systematic planning, information economy, organizational information systems, strategic management, industrial competition, business reengineering, and diagnostics of industrial organizations. The e-commerce covers mainly buying systems, personalized service systems, ordering management systems, accounting management systems, and on-line credit cards systems. The information systems concentrate on the improvement of information systems, by studying artificial intelligence, expert systems, quantitative methods, and knowledge engineering. These are used to support the development of both information management and applications and e- commerce. Postgraduate Opportunities  Advanced Degree Study Graduates may choose to pursue an advanced degree program in Taiwan or abroad.  Career Opportunities Graduates may work as a software designer, system engineer, web designer, web administrator, database administrator, system designer, project manager, etc. Future Outlook With the construction of the Asia-Pacific trade center and science and software industry parks in southern Taiwan, the demand for specialists in information management is growing exponentially. Based on Taiwan’s economic and development needs, the Department strives to be a leading institution in providing skilled personnel in information management.
