Field of Special Course
Our special fields are appeared in our name - Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. To support with what we've actually achieved, we want to share how KAIST has been recognized from the outside.

A quote from Overview about KAIST from QS Top University:

Formerly known as the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, KAIST was South Korea’s first research-oriented science and engineering institution when it was founded in 1971.
For such as young university, KAIST’s standing is growing rapidly: it is widely acknowledged as the best university in Korea and has been named the most innovative university in the Asia-Pacific region.
One of its stand-out research projects of recent years saw researchers develop an electric transport system, where vehicles get power from cables underneath the road via non-contact magnetic charging. It’s an example of how KAIST is leading the field in developing new technologies that might tackle world problems such as energy consumption and congestion in cities.
Around 10,000 full-time students attend KAIST, split between 4,000 undergraduates and 6,000 postgraduates. Science, engineering and technology are the school’s main focuses, though the university has branched out in recent years and is now internationally accredited in business education too. It has also adopted dual degree programs with leading world universities such as Carnegie Mellon in the United States and the Technical University of Berlin, and these offer its students diverse educational opportunities.
