Starting in 1983, the Department of Computer Science has provided the fundamental education on computer science and created an outstanding research program. Students are offered a comprehensive curriculum from introductory-level courses to advanced-level courses focusing on leading-edge research areas. There are especially some advanced-level courses such as Software Project 1, 2 and Creative Design on Software in which several groups of students are intensively involved in some of the most exciting and pioneering research in Computer Science.
The Department of Computer Science aims at educating students to the current practical demands for the global IT experts equipped with creativity and research abilities. It also intends to provide students with ethical values needed for the world today.
After graduation, students advance to Research Institutes/Centers and IT-related companies such as Samsung, LG, SK, KT, Hyundai, IBM, and Microsoft. A few become high-level civil servants or professors at universities. Some of them open their own businesses; a few well-known companies are the Daum Communication, the Virtualtech Corporation, etc. Almost all of them play very important roles in the IT industry.
