The School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering aims to train high caliber engineers with expertise and executive ability in the aerospace and mechanical industries. We offer two main programs: Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The educational objective of our programs is to produce aerospace and mechanical engineers who can build on their basic education and apply their engineering knowledge and skills to relevant fields. They will become professionals with comprehensive knowledge and creative engineering design skills. The school will prepare our students to be competent, responsible global leaders who communicate effectively and develop problem-solving skills through teamwork.
Freshmen entering the department enroll in a common curriculum and then choose one of two majors. Students can change their major if they meet the necessary requirements before the first semester of the fourth year. In addition, we are striving to nurture talent in the field of the Fourth Industrial Revolution by providing convergence programs such as the Interdisciplinary Program of Unmanned Aerial Systems Engineering, Flight Control, Aviation Maintenance System Engineering, and Interdisciplinary Program of Automated Driving System Engineering. These programs are offered in conjunction with other schools and departments, including the School of Electronics and Information Engineering, Department of Software and Computer Engineering, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and Department of Aeronautical Science and Flight Operation. Our graduates find employment in major leading companies in aerospace, automobile, shipbuilding, electronics, and other related industries. We pride ourselves on high employment rates in today’s leading companies.
The first and second year courses of the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering consist of co-requisite subjects. Most of the first year courses consist of liberal arts and MSC (Mathematics, Sciences, and Computers) courses, and the second year courses cover the basic theories required by both majors. Aerospace Engineering students study the mechanics, design, and manufacturing theories associated with airplanes, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), spacecraft, satellites, and rockets. Courses in Mechanical Engineering mainly deal with thermal mechanics, fluid mechanics, mechanics of materials, dynamics, internal combustion engines, production engineering, automation, automatic control and system engineering. In the fourth year, students are challenged to solve practical engineering problems by taking Capstone Design course, developing comprehensive engineering competencies.
The Bachelor of Engineering degree is awarded after fulfilling the requirements of an Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering course. Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering graduates are well-qualified to take advantage of career opportunities in the aerospace, mechanical, manufacturing industries, airlines, civil and governmental agencies, and private and governmental research institutions. Master's and doctoral programs are also available for those who wish to continue their studies with more professional experience and guidance.
The School of Electronics, Telecommunication and Computer Engineering fosters high level engineers who will lead the core hi-tech domains of the future, such as the avionics, electronics, IT and computer industries.
The school was founded in 2000 by integrating the former departments of avionics, aviation IT and computer engineering. After completing the common and elective subjects in the first year, the students acquire knowledge in one of the following specialty areas - IT, electronics, avionics and computer data engineering - from the beginning of the second year. In order to foster high level science and technology talents equipped with the ability to resolve problems independently, the curriculum includes diverse basic and liberal arts subjects, in-depth major subjects, lab experiments, and on-the-job study programs.
This school is designed to enable students to play leading roles in their respective areas by training creative talents on inclusive and diverse training programs. To that end, the school helps the students to acquire the latest knowledge from the most advanced fields by progressively adapting its curriculum to reflect new technological developments in the industrial fields.
Furthermore, it enables the students to use the knowledge they acquire from the theoretical lectures on their respective major subjects through lab experimentation and on-the-job practice, and encourages them to study hard by holding academic seminars with experts invited from home and abroad, thereby narrowing the gap between the academic and industrial scenes. The school fosters excellent personnel in these rapidly-changing fields by helping students to develop their ability to think and express themselves through design subjects and project-based studies.
