With the Fourth Industrial Revolution, industrial demand for mechanical systems using AI and IoT, smart machine tools, and smart factories is increasing. The field of mechanical engineering is an engineering field that studies the basic or applied fields of the design, manufacture, performance, use, and operation of machines and related devices. Basic fields include material mechanics, CAD/CAM, kinematics, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics. Applied fields cover machine design, machine operation, automatic control, and numerical analysis.
Electronics engineering is a field that studies the characteristics of electrical signals in various physical properties to develop cutting-edge technology, devices, and equipment, dealing with broad contents ranging from the basics to application. Electronic engineering is also the study of core technologies of the information society, such as semiconductors, telecommunication, controls, and computers in addition to key technology to lead the Fourth Industrial Revolution, such as IoT, robots, and AI. As such, electronic engineering is a field leading the current and future cutting-edge industries.
It is a new discipline that applies technologies developed in electronic engineering, such as computer control and information processing to mechanical engineering. The term, mechatronics comes from the combination of mechanics and electronics. It studies the key and practical technologies of machinery, electricity, electronics, computer, information, telecommunication, and control engineering. The technology which combines all or some of the areas above is applied to developing new products, processing, design, and production in order to present simultaneous engineering solutions. Mechatronics engineering will receive more spotlight in the future in accordance with the trend of ultra-miniaturization, composite systemization, and digitalization of science and technology.
Cutting-edge technologies in diversified areas are fused in an automobile, which requires high performance, safety, comfortability and eco-friendliness. A good car is borne from science and technology inspired by artistic sensibility, excellent design, and engineering perfection. Furthermore, the automobile industry represents the capitalist consumption economy, and its transaction is made available by global production and supply of its parts and components, as well as supplying networks across the world. The automobile is the most attractive product that can be owned by individuals. Recently, based on the traditional automotive industry, electric vehicles, hydrogen vehicles, autonomous vehicles, and smart mobility are changing and developing in various ways that pursue eco-friendliness, convenience, and safety.
The Department was established in 2013 to foster professionals of energy engineering to meet the requirements of the times by considering the structure of the future energy industry while simultaneously meeting the demand for qualified manpower and current status. Contributing to national development, leading the growth engines in the energy sector, in connection with the university’s mission, goals, and characteristics, the Department aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the university.
Energy engineering is a convergence discipline that deals with research, development, system operation, and management in order to make efficient use of limited energy resources and convert current energy into sustainable eco-friendly energy. In the case of South Korea, which is highly dependent on foreign energy, next-generation energy technology plays an important and critical role in enhancing the nation’s competitiveness. Furthermore, it is one of the cutting-edge engineering areas responsible for the future of mankind. In this regard, the Department educates and trains students to be creative professionals who will lead future energy fields in the areas of hydrogen energy, fuel cell, bio and waste energy, solar energy, secondary battery, smart grid, and energy policy.
