發展特色

由於本學系是國內最早成立的大專院校設計專業科系,所以成為秉承傳統特色與前瞻視野的視覺傳達設計學系。

全藝術專業環境

本學系隸屬於藝術領域的專業環境內,學生得以接受全藝術專業環境薰陶,比綜合大學更能培養出獨特見解與思維的能力。此外,擁有豐富經驗與最悠久設計教學歷史,而且依社會環境的需求,規劃完整豐富的課程,完善的學制培育出不同階段之專業人才。

理論與實務均衡發展

本學系向來注重理論與實務均衡發展,學界與業界接軌的重要性,以期達成設計理念與實務相互落實的教學目標。

近年來,為因應多樣的媒體(multimedia)、新興的媒體通訊技術與數位科技時代的來臨,以及配合政府推展「文化創意產業」之理念,本學系在課程內容的規劃方面,結合理論與方法、文化與背景(context)、環境與人的因素、傳統與當代技術、視覺美學來制定全面的設計策略。這些策略運用在物質性作品(書、海報與包裝)、數位界面(網站、動畫)、環境(展覽、標誌系統)等。

課程強調人文藝術與數位科技相互整合的重要性,務必讓本學系學生成為理論與實務兼修的專業設計人才。

設備環境

本系為一棟四層樓之「設計大樓」

規劃有 : 視聽教室、素描教室、繪圖教室、電腦教室、攝影暗房、討論教室、圖書室、研究生研究室。 

主要為電腦及電腦周邊設備

重要者如:個人電腦40台、彩色繪圖機2台、多重反差放大機9台、筆記型電腦6台、雷射印表機2台、單槍投影機7台等。 

歷史淵源

「視覺傳達設計學系」成立於2000年,沿自1957年國立藝專時期之美工科設計組,1994年學院時期之「工藝學系」設計組。

本學系是國內最早設立的大專院校專業設計科系,為國內培育無數優秀設計人才。2004年成立「碩士班(含在職碩士專班)」,將基礎設計與進階研究統整,設立完整與健全之設計教學系統。

目前有專任教師9名,教授4名,副教授5名;兼任、專業教師五十餘人,師資陣容堅強。空間規劃及設施完善,課程豐富、多元,本學系是國內視覺設計教育的重要園地。

Brief introduction

1. To meet the needs of economic construction, and of national cultural policies. We aim to cultivate designing talents with outstanding skills.

2. Students are immersed in art, and are provided with professional skills so that they would be macroscopic, highly creative, aesthetic, technology -oriented and aware of the market tendency; thus they are well equipped with the abilities to visually communicate as well as to do academic researches.
3. We are creating interdisciplinary teaching programs, employing artistic and designing resources to develop cultural industries, to feature Taiwan, and to improve the qualities and tastes for visual designing.

4.We spare no efforts to promote the international cultural designing intercourse, working hard to be more competitive internationally. 

Feature development

Because our department is the first to be set up in Taiwan,as a professional designing department. That’s why we became the one that is a mixture of tradition and far sightedness.

Professional artistic atmosphere

Students here are exposed to the exclusively artistic atmosphere,  And thus are more likely to be educated as  independently thinking ones than those in other universities.What's more,  with the richness of teaching experience and of the programs, we are certain to cultivate excellent generations.

Striking a balance between theory and practice

We emphasize both the theory and the practice, and the importance of the connection of the academic community and the industry.

Recently, faced with the multi media, and the advent of the uprising media communications and digital technology, and the governmental promotion for the Creative Cultural production , we plan programs which combine theory with methods,  culture with contexts,  environments with the people in them, the tradition with modern technology as well as visual aesthetics. That's the strategies we have adopted and have been applying to the material works (books, posters, and packaging), digital interface ( websites , animation), surroundings( exhibition, signs ) etc.

The courses put emphasis upon the importance of integrity of the libral arts and the digital technology, making sure to educate our students to be talents capable of putting theory into practice.

Facilities

The department has a four floor building with audio-visual classrooms, sketching classrooms, drawing rooms ,computer rooms, photographing darkrooms, discussing classrooms ,a library ,and research rooms for graduates.

The computers: 40 Personal computers, 2 color drawing machines, 9 enlargers, 6 laptops , and 7 projectors.

History

The visual communication design department was founded in 2000, which stems from the craft department in the oldest art college in Taiwan (1994), originally the Department of Industrial Art of the National Taiwan Academy of Arts (1957).

Our department is the first designing one ever established in Taiwan, having cultivated numerous talents in designing.

In 2004, we also began the graduate courses (including the Refresher courses) , which connects the basic designing with the further research; thus a sound and complete   teaching system for designing has been created.

At present, we have 8 full time position teachers .Four of them are professors, and four associate professors .Three of them obtain PHD degree. The number of Part-time and professional teachers amounts to fifty. The diverse courses, excellent facilities, and great teachers make it a marvelous garden where the talents in visual designing are in bloom.
