All-English Graduate Program(CEIRM) / Program overview

 Program overview
In light of its unique geographic and environmental characteristics, Taiwan is particularly vulnerable to natural disasters. Findings from many studies have demonstrated that climate changes can result in much greater impacts to island-countries like Taiwan than other continental countries. It is therefore of vital importance for both government agencies and engineering consultancy firms to rely on environmental data and information for sound engineering practices and decision making in disaster remediation, ecological restoration, soil and water conservation, adaptation to climate changes, etc. This comprehensive curriculum provides an integrated and multidisciplinary program that spans a very wide spectrum including environmental database building and analysis, environmental monitoring and instrumentation, landscape ecological measuring and planning, restoration ecology, spatiotemporal stochastic modeling and simulation, risk assessment and management, environmental system/process modeling, and climate change impact assessment. 
 
The CEIRM emphasizes not only the fundamental theories and computer skills for environmental modeling and risk assessment, but also practical applications to solve real world problems. A few such applications include quantitative assessment of the climate change impact on urban inundation, drought indicators and drought forecasting, ecological indicators for river ecology restoration, evaluating the effect of urbanization on diurnal temperature variations, etc.
