                 Department of Civil Engineering & Environmental Resource Management  




    Dahan Institute  of  Technology,  the most famous College in the East of Taiwan, was founded in 1977. At the same time, Department of Civil Engineering of 5-year, was also established.  It was renamed in 1992 when 2-year academic discipline system of Department of Civil Engineering reorganized.  Then 2-year academic discipline system of night school was set up in 1995.  The academic discipline system again was upgraded in 1999 into 4-year education system of Institute of Technology. In 2000, all the classes altered to be 4-year systems of Institute of Technology. The next year, 4-year system of Institute of Technology for night school was set up. What deserves to be mentioned the most is the graduate school of Civil Engineering &Environment Resources Management was set up in 2012,that there has been 38 graduate students for advanced study now.
        Because one of civil engineering's missions is to enhance the living standard and protect the safety of human beings,  the  future  teaching  and  researches of the department will combine human needs with Energy,  Ecology and Environment ( EEE ) in order to reach the total balance of entirety, furthermore, to aim at educating new generation of civil engineers.  In 2010, the Department of Civil Engineering and Environmental Resources Management was renamed after years of expansion and development. Both of our teacher’s qualification and  facilities in our department have achieved the highest standards. As teacher’s qualification,  currently  there  are  9  full-time teachers ( including 2 professor,  3 associate professors  and  4 assistant professors).
       For   more   than  thirty  years,   our  alumni  are  creating  enormous  contributions  for  national developments in the east of Taiwan . In recent years, as large population is starting to become more ecologically conscious,  we have attached  importance  to  the environmental changes caused by the economic developments and industrial constructions.  Thus, civil engineers must concern the impacts towards the environment  while  planning  and  building  fundamental  constructions.  Additionally,  with  issues  in exhaustion of energy and natural resources, with global warming and sea level rising caused by   the   increase   of   the  greenhouse  effect,   all  of  these  issues  are  challenging  our  continuing developments of the country.

Educational objectives

      The objectives of Department of Civil Engineering and Environmental Resources Management are as follows.

    1.  to possess professional practice and cognitive ability of ethical responsibility;
    2.  to be capable of computer-aided Engineering;
    3.  to work with a team and possess the ability to adapt to the society.
    4.  to grasp the self-learning skill.

        We stress the importance of eco-development and professional morality. Teaching practical skills of civil engineering and management of environment resource makes students engage in the position in consulting firms such as the investigation, survey, drawing, design and operation fields.

Department features
  1. Offering an outstanding undergraduate program able of leading students to career success.
  2. Possessing an  excellent  quality  of  faculty  members,  many  of  them  also  being rich in practical
  3. Investing students with capability of combining theory with practice.
  4. Placing special emphasis on career-oriented  teaching programs,  investing students with competitiveness in marketplace.
  5. Cooperating with local industry, providing students with experiences of technical service.

    The   curriculum   places   emphases   on  fundamental  skill  and  professional  knowledge  in  civil engineering.  It  emphasizes  hands-on  practical  training  assignment  as well as theoretical knowledge. Students  are  encouraged  to  discover,  analyze,   and   solve   engineering   problems.   To   cultivate professional engineers and meet the skill requirements of modern construction engineering, the courses are organized in three groups as follows:
1. Construction Engineering & Management
2. Geotechnical and Environmental Disaster Prevention
3. Environmental Monitoring, Protection and Resources Recycling Technology.

        Currently,  there  are  9  full-time  faculty  members  at  the  Department  of  Civil  Engineering  & Environmental  Resource  Management.  The  specialties of  Faculty  members  cover  civil, structural, environmental,  hydraulic,  and  water  resource  engineering.  The teaching goal of this Department is to offer the fundamental engineering training and to encourage students to discover, analyze, and solve the problems independently. On top of that, the abilities of students to carry out the experimental work and the practical training assignment are emphasized as well. The faculties of the Department not only provide  a  balanced  teaching  in  theory  and  practice,  but  also do research to bridge the theory and practice by serving the construction industry and the society as a whole.



   The laboratories and related equipment for teaching and practicing requirements have been set up as  follows : materials  testing  laboratory,  soil  mechanics  laboratory, surveying  instruments room, computer network classroom, structure  laboratory, computer aided engineering and project management laboratory, department library, and case study room.
Degree Offer 

   The Department offers 4-year Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and Environmental Resource Management.  For  full-time  students,  total  128  credits  are also required before graduation. For students at work, the department offers 4-year evening program in Bachelor of Science Degree. For students belonging to  2-year  evening program, total 128 credits are generally required before graduation. For students belongs to 2-year evening program, total 72 credits are generally required before graduation.
