Mechanical and Automotive Engineering

The convergence of rapidly developing machinery, automobiles, IT, and computer technologies will be a key means for future growth engines.

Can you describe the Division of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering?

“There is a field called mechatronics which is the convergence of machines and electronics. However, I thought it might sound too unfamiliar in Korea, so I decided to use mechanical control engineering instead. Control refers to IT convergence which involves mechanical and automotive engineering and IT. Therefore, the Department of Automotive IT Convergence Engineering was established by recognizing that technology convergence is an important field will increasingly determine future growth. Based on our online education know-how, we provide a curriculum designed to help our students thoroughly understand specialized theories and exercise practical skills in the fields of machinery, automobiles, and IT. We aim to train talent specialists who can play leading roles by tapping into their creativity and apply the knowledge they have gained.

What are the characteristics of the division?

“First of all, students can study subjects that are broad and faithful to the basics. A great feature is our competent professors who have academic backgrounds and practical skills. Our full-time professors have theoretical and practical experience, and we also have professional researchers from national and industrial research institutes. In addition, we invite industry professionals to provide special lectures, while we are also hire adjunct professors from the industries of machinery, automobiles, and IT convergence in order to provide realistic education and practical knowledge of actual work in the field.”

What are the prospects for graduates of the division?

“The basis for automobiles, shipbuilding, aerospace and robots, mechatronics, and green energy is mechanical engineering. Mechanical engineering is a department where students learn not only the designs and production of machines necessary in everyday life, but also advanced technologies such as those in the field of automobiles, high-speed trains, satellites, energy, robots, artificial organs, and nanotechnology. Machines are increasingly needed in all engineering industries and will continue to be become more advanced in the future. Thus, mechanical engineering will continue to be in the spotlight. With the advent of the 4th industrial revolution, there is more convergence of different industries such as automobiles, energy, and shipbuilding all centered on engineering technology. The vision of the Department of Automotive IT Convergence Engineering and the IT Convergence Technology Division is to play a pivotal role in creating new industries and markets by focusing on cost reduction, productivity improvement, and eco-friendly technology development through the synergy of new technologies and the creative convergence of existing industries.”

How can students engage in hands-on experience with cyber lectures?

“We use the electude simulator training course. We also use a simulation-based online training module. Due to the nature of a cyber university, we have a lot of site workers but they learn a lot of things naturally through the contents learned at school and experiences in the field. In addition, through an MOU with Hanyang University's College of Engineering, we are planning to conduct a number of special lectures so that students can do experiments and practice their skills offline.”

What are the career paths for students after graduation?

“Students can pursue graduate school programs at home or abroad, or they can find employment in machinery and automobile related industries. With the theoretical knowledge and practical experience they gain with their Mechanical Control Engineering major, students can actively contribute in various fields as a mechanical engineering experts. Since the Department of Mechanical Control Engineering is the foundation of all engineering industries, students can advance into the fields of automobiles, shipbuilding, aircraft, plant, heavy industries, electronics, and construction. Meanwhile, students in the Department of Automotive IT Convergence Engineering can seek careers in broader fields including new power industry, IoT, and ICT, going beyond the existing automotive field.”

A message to applicants of the Department of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering

“I would like to encourage prospective students to think digitally but feel analog, which is a balance between new and old. Digital is either 0 or 1 but living by thinking only in extremes can make people unhappy. Still, living only in the past, like an analog device, can likewise create dissatisfaction. However, when we live with a balance between both, we can become assets in promising industries in the future.”

Customized Education for Students

The convergence of rapidly developing machinery, automobiles, IT, and computer technologies is expected to become a key for factor for future growth engines. The Department of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering is devoted to cultivating professionals with practical skills through a curriculum that is divided into two departments: Mechanical Control Engineering and Automotive IT Convergence Engineering. Our outstanding faculty members provide up-to-date education based on proven cyber technology in the engineering field to help students develop into quality professionals in their field of expertise.

Detailed Major Courses

The curriculum of the Division of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering is organized in stages according to the degree of difficulty of each subject and the degree of connection and convergence with practical work.
The Department of Mechanical Control Engineering is divided into three stages: basic, core, and advanced, and four major subjects, while mechanics, statics, design, automatic control, and mechatronics are included in the curriculum. This allows students to acquire a firm background in theory and to develop practical skills, in order to cultivate them into creative individuals with the ability to put theory into practice.

The curriculum of the Department of Automotive IT Convergence Engineering consists of subjects such as mechanical and automotive design, and employs automotive IT technology and students choose one of three tracks: Electric Vehicle, Intelligent Vehicle, and IT Software. This allows students to acquire a firm grasp of foundational theory which will be helpful in their role in the future automobile industry while increasing their ability to apply convergence technology.
