Department of Computer Science
College of Electrical & Computer Engineering
The Department of Software Engineering has cultivated talented people for the computer industry. As the needs of experts who are able to be in charge of diverse kinds of software R&D required in high-tech industries such as information security smart phone game etc. in the field of Information Technology(IT) has increased the department was established separately from the existing school of computer engineering in 2011. The department has pursued an objective for the cultivation of well-rounded people who have the problem-solving skills in the high industrialized technology society and a cultivation of creative and practical manpower leading the cutting-edge digital information and cultural industries by widening research ability and knowledge in the field where a computer has been applied through a research interpretation and practical works on computer itself by the various fields of computer education.
On the basis of the ABEEK program the Department of Software Engineering will provide major-based education education applied the demand of technology from industry as well as education mainly with practical works through the direct and indirect participation and contribution of faculties students and industries intimately connected to one another in the education of this department. Furthermore through the curriculum which primarily covers a basic theory of computer and in-depth practice of programing and the latest IT technology based on an innovative course of study students will lead the field of IT for the future of society in the various fields of computer application.
The current state of employment after graduation Mainly the careers for graduates are the diverse software application fields such as the conglomerates(Samsung Electronics Samsung SDS LG Electronics LG CNS etc.) the small and mid-sized companies (NHN Daum NCsoft etc.) computing departments in public institutions and commercial banks software consulting computer education and more.
The department of Computer Science was established in March 1978 originally as department of statistics in the college of social science and approved with establishing department of computational statistics in the college of natural science in March 1980. Starting from October 1981 the policy of degree conferment has been changed from college basis to department basis and the first graduates majoring in statistics was turned out in February 1982.
The graduate program in computer science and statistics opened in February 1984 and recruited students. In November 1987 the department was divided into computer and computer science engineering. The Ph. D. program in computer engineering opened in November 1989.
In September 1992 the department changed its name from computer science engineering to computer science and admission quota system was operated. In November 1999 the department was brought directly under the headquarter of the college of electrical and computer engineering by BK21 project. Currently the department of computer science is operated in electrical engineering electronics information and computer engineering with admission quota.
