MUST Launches STEM Post-Bachelor Programs Catering to Non-STEM Graduates Pursuing High-Tech Industries


In response to the manpower demands of the semiconductor industry and the digital transformation for AI era, our school has launched a post-bachelor program in the STEM field specifically designed for non-STEM graduates aspiring to pursue careers in the high-tech industry. This program aims to expand the cultivation of technological talents in the STEM field. The autumn semester of this year will consist of three classes, with the announcement of brochures scheduled for mid-July and online registration and document submission commencing in early August. The selection process will be conducted through a written review, and the results are expected to be released by the end of August, followed by the start of classes in early September.


Dean of Academic Affairs, Duh Feng-Chyi, emphasized the urgent need for talent in the technology industry. To guide talents toward a career in the technology industry, starting from the academic year 2023, our school is offering post-bachelor programs in the STEM field specifically for non-STEM graduates. The inaugural programs for the fall semester include two classes of "Semiconductor Packaging and Testing Post-Bachelor Program" and one class of "CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing) Information Engineer Post-Bachelor Program." Each class will accommodate 40 students, offering flexible class schedules. Students can obtain their degrees in as little as 1.5 years. These programs will not only provide specialized courses but also include teachings from industry experts and internship opportunities at major technology companies.


The Office of Academic Affairs explained that the STEM post-bachelor program consists of 48 credits, including internship credits, and can be completed in a minimum of 1.5 years (3 semesters) to obtain a bachelor's degree. Classes are scheduled during weekday evenings or weekend daytime, allowing working professionals to continue their employment, while providing internship opportunities with benefits comparable to regular positions for unemployed individuals. The curriculum is specifically designed for non-STEM graduates, and is highly suitable for individuals with non-STEM backgrounds who are seeking to switch careers or unemployed individuals aiming to enter the technology industry. By enrolling these professional courses, individuals with aspirations in the semiconductor or digital technology industry can seamlessly transform into high-tech professionals.
