Our department was established in 1998, in order to coordinate with national economic planning and development policy, and the establishment of the Southern Taiwan Science Park, the Kaohsiung Software Technology Park, and the Asia-Pacific Regional Operations Center. Our aim is to cultivate students’ basic skills in information management, and to train them in the application of information technology in business. We particularly focus on the development and application of information management in the field of medicine and health, in order to train personnel with the information management skills needed by the medicine and health care industries. We also strengthen students’ knowledge of the fields of e-business and digital content. Our courses aim to achieve a balance between breadth and depth, with teachers and students working actively together on developing electronic services and industry-academic cooperation. At the beginning of the 21st century, computerization and digitization had already become a basic requirement of industry, with organizations in every field striving to improve the efficiency of their work. In the past few years, there has been an even more dynamic movement towards the digitalization, mobilization and “ubiquitization” of business, in order to improve competitiveness. Under these circumstances, the training of information management specialists has become crucial.
The core of our department’s curriculum focuses on teaching students information technology and management skills. Classes emphasize practical operation of all kinds of information management, in order to ensure that after graduation they are able to flexibly apply the skills they have learned in the actual processes of business. We have also planned project-based courses that train students in the integration and analysis of knowledge from all kinds of specialist fields.
Our required courses can be divided into two main streams: information technology skill and management knowledge. The former includes courses such as interactive multimedia webpage design, programming, and systems analysis and design, while the latter includes courses such as management studies, economics, accounting, business software packages, and statistics. Elective courses fall into the categories of health industry information management, digital content application and management, and e-commerce.
Our department employs teachers from industry with rich practical experience, in order to teach students practical skills. In addition, our department has recently made professional internships a required element of our program. We are working hard to establish relationships with information technology businesses and health care institutions, in order to promote internship opportunities for students. These internships will enable them to apply the skills they have learned at school in real workplace situations, and thus increase their employment competitiveness.
