Undergraduate Konkuk Institute of Technology

Department of Smart ICT Engineering

The Department of Smart ICT Engineering integrates aspects of software, hardware, humanities, and culture to prepare students for the service sector in the future. With support from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, the department was established in 2013 offering a master’s program. Based on its success, the curriculum of the new undergraduate program will combine courses from media, computer science, electronics engineering, and digital culture departments, and include subjects that were traditionally excluded from university education.

“The service sector in future will be centered around wearable computing and devices,” said Professor HyungSeok Kim. “Areas that combine software, hardware, and cultural contents, such as Internet of Things, virtual reality, and augmented reality, will be of interest.”

“We expect students to increase their learning capacity as well as problem-solving skills,” he said. “Learning capacity is the ability to find solutions through electronics engineering and computer science and by problem-solving skills I mean developing processes, meeting certain requirements, and providing applications based on the information.”
