The Division of IT Convergence Engineering was founded in March 2009, and will be funded by the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology as a WCU (World Class University) Program. The comprehensive nature of POSTECH?s Division of IT Convergence Engineering, combined with POSTECH?s high quality faculty, facilities, and industrial relationships, makes this division an ideal research environment for students as well as experienced researchers.
The Division of IT Convergence Engineering emphasizes the study of Autonomics, Nano Sensors & Systems, Communications & Networks, and Biotechnology, and is dedicated to being at the cutting edge of these new exciting fields. POSTECH?s outstanding faculty has been augmented by recruiting international experts in these fields to teach and conduct research. The world class research conducted by the Division of IT Convergence Engineering will involve collaboration with top universities, research institutes and industries. We expect synergistic advances to be produced using the combined facilities and infrastructure of POSTECH and our partners, such as CUKCM (Catholic University of Korea, College of Medicine) and POSCO.
The students of the Division of IT Convergence Engineering will take part in multidisciplinary research and have the opportunity to interact with world renowned experts through a variety of research activities, such as visiting international foreign Professors? research labs, being co-supervised by foreign Professors, and participating in overseas training programs, internships, and international workshops/seminars.
