Ever-evolving engineering technologies have greatly contributed to the exchange and dissemination of information. They, in turn, facilitated the spread of democratic values worldwide today. Engineering education must lead this role by instilling the traditional core values in students, at the same time, integrating creativity in curriculum in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The ongoing pandemic serves as an illustration on the importance of adaptability in education and research, for both professors and students, for the future that will bring ever more Black Swans.
Creativity Engineering College operates a variety of education and research programs to cultivate creative, practical, and community-minded talents in the engineering field based on the educational philosophy of Kookmin University. Currently, it consists of about 100 faculty members and 2,700 enrolled students in nine majors in four schools including the School of Advanced Materials Engineering, the School of Mechanical Engineering, the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the School of Electrical Engineering.
The College of Creative Engineering adopted the accreditation for engineering education by ABEEK(Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea) to provide future-oriented education demanded by the industries. We also established excellent research infrastructures to support various government projects (Engineering Education Innovation Center Support Project, LINC+ Project, University Innovation Support Project, Specialization Project etc.), providing excellent research opportunities to current students. A global leader is more than an engineer. We broaden the students’ perspective with various cultural and linguistic skills. Our graduates contribute to the development of society and pursue individual happiness by working in government authorities, public organizations, major companies, SMEs, venture companies, as well as in research institutes and universities.
Kookmin University, which takes pride in being the first private college founded in Korea since independence, is also privileged to have Bukhansan National Park as its “backyard.” In these historical and beautiful natural settings, professors and students teach and learn, grow personally and contribute globally to make a better future for all.
We ask for your continued interest and support so that our university, which is constantly growing, can continue to develop in the future. Thank you very much.
