Undergraduate Konkuk Institute of Technology

Department of Energy Engineering

According to a report published by the Korea Institute of Advancement of Technology in early 2016, information and communication technology and new energy will be areas of high demand in 2020. At KIT’s Department of Energy Engineering, students will have a strong foundation in basic science and learn cutting-edge technologies and applied engineering. The curriculum is designed to educate students in the areas of wearable display, energy storage, solar power, and smart grids with a focus on converting, storing, and managing energy to develop sustainable energy technologies.

By shifting the focus of education from product-based to technology-based the department will help its students adapt to the rapid changes in the industry. The curriculum entails four tracks—electric power conversion, solar power conversion, energy storage, and energy demand management. The specialized curriculum is designed to engage students in theory and practice, and graduates will become well-versed in LED and OLED display, solar batteries, energy storage, and smart-grids.

First and second year students will take core courses for a strong theoretical background, but also gain practical experience during their vacation. Students who receive their bachelor’s degree will be able to participate in internships after graduation with organizations that have signed MOUs with KIT, which will lead to full-time employment. Furthermore, students joining the 4+1 BS/MS program will be able to take graduate level courses and conduct independent research during their undergraduate program. Selected students at the department will receive a scholarship to and be mentored by CEOs, CTOs, and other high-level executives in the private sector
