“Join KAIST, a Beacon of Hope Lighting the Way Forward for Humanity”

KAIST provides world-class engineering education and research environment. Through constant innovation, the university strives to make a leap forward toward its goal of joining the list of "The Best Research-oriented Universities."

KAIST has recently reorganized its academic programs in an effort to pursue greater excellence in education and research in the field of engineering, moving beyond the boundaries of disciplines and departments. As of May 2019, the College of Engineering encompasses 3 large-scale schools (the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the School of Electrical Engineering, and the School of Computing), 7and 13 departments. With 368 full-time faculty members and 7,269 students, KAIST has emerged as the nation's largest research institute.

The College of Engineering accounts for 59% and 60% of the total number of KAIST faculty and students, respectively. Through reorganization, KAIST intends to help undergraduate students acquire a broad range of knowledge based on their areas of focus, while the emphasis in graduate and Ph.D programs will be placed on offering in-depth interdisciplinary education in accordance with the academic foundation. KAIST aims to realize "π-type engineering education" with two vertical axes, which are in-depth expertise and advanced major education through a mandatory minor program, and one horizontal axis, which is a broad range of basic knowledge.
