Undergraduate Program

The Division of Humanities and Social Sciences

The Division of Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) of POSTECH aims to foster students to be not only society, and ethics. HSS offers basic, diverse courses from Humanities (literature, history, and philosophy) to Social Sciences (psychology, sociology, economics, management, and politics). Through a diversity of courses of arts,
physical education, writing and speaking, and foreign languages, including English, HASS has become a leading model in liberal education for other science and engineering universities. The outstanding research and extensive academic activities of HASS faculty members in various fields have made significant contributions to social growth.

Mathematics

Mathematics is an essential language used in science to quantitatively describe natural and social phenomena and to nurture systematic thinking.

Faced with the increasing complexity of modern society, particularly in the 21st century, the scope of mathematical applications is being further extended to the processing, analysis, and preparation of diverse information. Therefore, capable mathematicians and researchers well trained in mathematical thinking are in critical need, as the global competition in science and technology becomes more and more intense.

In response to such needs from the society, the Department of Mathematics at POSTECH aims to train teachers and researchers capable of diverse mathematical applications, striking a harmonious balance between research and education as well as theory and practice.

Industrial & Management Engineering

Industrial & Management Engineering is continuously growing with the objective of improving productivity through integrated and optimized systems. Recently it is gaining strength in new areas of cutting-edge technology, such as factory automation, CAD/CAM, CIM and integrated information systems, in addition to its conventional areas such as ergonomics, safety engineering, operations research, applied statistics and production management.

Electrical Engineering

Education is focused on a diverse range of basic study and on passing on expertise in electronic and electrical engineering. The Department of Electrical Engineering manages to synthesize educational contents such as electronic engineering, control and measure engineering, computer engineering, electronic communication engineering, electromagnetic wave engineering, and electronic material engineering. The undergraduate program in the Department of Electrical Engineering at POSTECH is loyal to general, basic subjects rather than focusing on certain specific areas, while areas of interest are more focused and specialized in the graduate program. Undergraduate students are thus well educated with a general, foundational knowledge of electronic and electrical engineering, so they can adapt as easily to industries or graduate programs after graduation.
