Enrollment Regulations of Interdisciplinary Program of Science

1. Students who finish all requirements and complete at least 128 units during the college should be able to graduate.

2. According to the Enforcement Rules of the University Act Art.8, “Credit courses referred to in Paragraph 2, Article 11 of the Act shall mean the design and combination of interdepartmental, inter-institute or inter-college courses in special fields; degree courses referred to of the Act shall mean design and combination of interdepartmental, inter-institute or inter-college courses in special fields that award degrees. To offer credit courses or degree courses, universities shall be equipped with related departments, graduate schools or colleges as basis and shall have recourses like teachers, teaching space and equipment provided by the departments, graduate schools or colleges.”

Our program is the interdisciplinary program. Therefore, students are not allowed to enroll major courses in only one department.

3. If there are same courses in the first and second expertise, there is no need for students to enroll the same courses in the second expertise department. However, students still need to fill in enough units and the second expertise department will decide which courses should be taken.

4. Seniors should print out the “Major Requirement Check List” from the Academic Information Systems before the course enrollment deadline. After audited, the list will be submitted to the Division of Registration to tally the passed units and courses, which have not been taken.




Notes for Courses Enrollment

1. According to the regulation of Interdisciplinary Program of Science, students will take major courses in the freshman year, General Physics, General Chemistry, and Calculus, with other students from the original departments. (Take general physics with Physics students. Take general chemistry with Chemistry students. Take calculus with Mathematics students.) This rule has been followed for many years and is also one of our characteristics. At present, the Department Affairs Office and Division of Registration both follow this rule to audit students’ graduation units. If students do not meet the requirements, these units will not be admitted. If students would like to transfer to other departments, they can submit a petition regarding not taking these three courses with their original departments. After students transfer to other departments in the sophomore year, that department will review if those units fulfill their own requirements.

2. The total six units major courses, Organic Chemistry I and II, repeated in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering program were replaced with “Material and Energy Balance” and “Chemical Engineering Unit Operation” decided by the Department of Chemical Engineering Faculty Meeting on September 10th 2007. The Department of Chemical Engineering has canceled the restriction for students from other departments on no right to take “Process Design” during their Faculty Meeting on March 10th 2008.

3. Approved by Department of Material Science and Engineering, our students can substitute the “Introduction to Material Science I” or “Introduction to Material Science II” in the Department of Engineering and System Science for the “Introduction to Material Science I” in the Department of Material Science and Engineering.

4. The exemption of “Physical Chemistry I”, 6 units, for the Physics and Chemistry group has been approved and this course can be replaced with other Chemistry courses.
