Master in Automotive Engineering

The Department of Automotive Engineering is part of Korea's high-technology development strategy to reinforce the international competitiveness of our auto industry. The Department of Automotive Engineering was established in 1992 as a special department, and it is one of the departments in auto engineering established in three renowned engineering colleges in Korea.

Since the integration of the Department of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering in 1997 owing to the initiation of the faculty system, the Department of Automotive Engineering was reorganized. However, the college has since reverted to the original system with a separate Department of Automotive Engineering and School of Mechanical Engineering. Aside from having the best research facilities, our department also has the best teaching staff in the field of auto mechanics and high-technology education. Furthermore, we offer a specialized educational program with the Graduate School of Automotive Engineering, the only graduate school specializing in auto engineering in Korea, which boasts various research and education industry accomplishments, including in the BK (Brain Korea) industry.

The program is designed to provide systemic education in the entire field of auto engineering by offering lectures concerning the key theories and training in practical applications. In particular, we are providing education in the high technology required for actualizing environment-friendly, high-safety, and intelligent automobiles that utilize alternative energy. We are exerting our utmost efforts to nurture forward-looking and creative auto engineers. Furthermore, this department actively promotes interaction with the domestic and international auto industries and other specialized universities.

Our students have won in various automobile-related competitions including the Formula SAE. After graduating from this department, our students have started bright careers in various industries as well as research institutes related to the domestic automobile industries.

The College of Engineering

The College of Engineering is divided into 4 schools with similar characteristics: the School of Advanced Materials Engineering, the School of Mechanical Systems Engineering, the Department of Automotive Engineering, and the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The most advanced courses in each major are taught by professors with the highest academic achievements and most research experience.

The College of Engineering has produced numerous engineers and researchers of the highest expertise. They have in turn had a substantial influence on the development of technology and on the growth of Korea. The college will continue to expand its academic and research capabilities by hiring professors of extraordinary ability. By continuously updating our state-of-the-art facilities, students have the high-tech equipment necessary for a top-quality engineering education.
