Department of Smart Vehicle Engineering

Students at the Department of Smart Vehicle Engineering will engage in improving the convenience and safety for driverless cars and drones by adding sensing and control systems. “Smart vehicle engineering has been recognized as a core technology for the 4th industrial revolution,” said Professor Sangho Kim. “We predict that the market and jobs will grow accordingly.”

With faculty members specializing in aerospace, automobiles, electronics, and computer science, the curriculum at the department focuses on educating students to become creative, skilled, and globally competitive in its field. Two tracks on unmanned aerial vehicles and unmanned ground vehicles are available with each track having four modules focusing on mechanics, sensory system, intelligence, and operation.

According to Professor Kim, graduates of the department are expected to become aerospace engineers, robotics engineers, and electronic controls engineers, and computer science engineers, among others. They are expected to be able to find employment at a wide range of organizations, including the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, Agency for Defense Development and Korea Aerospace Research Institute, as well as both Korean and global companies.
