College of Mechanical and IT Engineering

Department of Information and Communication Engineering

Introduction

Since the establishment in 1998, the Department of Information and Communication Engineering has set the goals of cultivating the professionals who will motivate this country’s state-of-the-art ICT field in such ways:

  1. 1. Application of the fundamentals of information and communication engineering (MSC, comprehensive education, fundamental of an engineer) and major-oriented knowledge (computer networking, mobile communication, embedded systems, and multimedia signal processing).
  2. 2. Producing professional information and communication engineers who have the ability to experiment and construct all aspects of information and communication engineering.
  3. 3. Producing professionals who have the ability to collaborate with colleagues and possess the leadership to a global standard.

Through such efforts the Department of Information and Communication Engineering has received tremendous amount of funding from the Ministry of Information and Communications such as "Superior Example Fund" (June 1998 ~ May 2002, total government funding of 1.5 billion won); , "Funding for IT equipment" (March 2001 ~ February 2004, total funding of 640 million won) and "Funding for IT related major reorganization" that helped our establishing the state-of-the-art IT labs and leading education/research environments. In particular, the research for successfully establishing the first stage (August 2003 ~ July 2005, total government funding of 1.22 billion won) and the second stage(August 2005 ~ July 2007, total government funding of 3.2 billion won) of the "Broadband mobile multimedia research center" which was later designated as ITRC (University IT Research Center) by the Ministry of Information and Communication. We also participated in the NURI project (17 July, 2004 ~ 31 May, 2009, total government funding of 15 billion won), and NEXT project (31 March, 2006 ~ 31 December 2009, total government funding of 800 million won) and the second stage of BK21 project (1 March, 2006 ~ 28 February 2013, total government funding of 980 million won). Currently, we participate in the LINC project (2012~2018, total government funding of 20 billion won) and BK21 PLUS project (2013~2019, total government funding of 22 billion won).

We provide various scholarships, foreign ICT educational programs, and the foreign student exchange program to enrich their educational experiences. Also, through the 2006 scholastic evaluations of the "Korean Council for University Education" we received a superior rating and thus, our department was publically announced as a superiorly reformed institution.

The professors of the Department of Information and Communication are the key holders to the future as they are producing the professionals who have the hands on experience, professional knowledge and global sense to create various state-of-the-art technologies in ICT field. As of 2014, there are 13 full-time professors (including a foreign faculty professor) in the department.

The department also has a strong graduate program. As of 2014, around 150 graduates got their M. E. or Ph. D. degrees from the department since its establishment at 1998, and more than 20 graduate students are currently seeking M. E. or Ph. D. degrees in various IT fields. Some of them are foreign students from various countries such as Uzbekistan, Iran, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh. There are 51 foreign graduates who got their M. E. or Ph. D. degrees from the department.

Job Fields

The Department has usually more than 70% of employment rate. Especially, more than 40% of the employment is made by blue chips such as Samsung Electronics and Korea Telecom in average. In addition, the graduates from 2009 have received the Certifications of Engineering Education. We expect a higher employment rate to the industry giants through the program.

CONVERGENCE- AND INTEGRATION-BASED THINKING AND WRITING
The ability of analyzing and solving problems is emphasized as one of the conditions for survival in the 21st century and one of the core elements of creative capabilities. This course was designed to cultivate convergence- and integration-based creative capabilities, which are integrated problem-solving capabilities to collect, analyze and process knowledge and information by reinforcing the ability of analyzing and solving problems, recreate it in a synthetic fashion, and express it effectively through speech and writing. The course will help the students cultivate their synesthesia thinking and communication skills based on sympathy with other human beings, understanding of the community, and positivity or Gongseong that is sought after by Yeungnam University. Its ultimate goals are to promote the students' creative knowledge development and reinforce their writing capabilities consistently through "convergence- and integration-based thinking and writing as a problem-solving approach."
1-1
PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH
The aim of the course is to help students develop basic English verbal skills in real life situations. The course will be co-taught by Korean and Native English instructors. Korean instructors will provide students with basic English structure, vocabulary, and expressions, and students will be encouraged to practice speaking English utilizing basic English structures. Students will further practice expressing themselves in English with native English instructors.
1-1
PRACTICAL CHINESE(I)
This course is for students just beginning to learn Chinese. The most difficult aspect of learning Chinese is pronunciation. So, first of all, in this course students will learn how to pronounce Chinese correctly. Then, through topics of daily life conversation, students will learn the basic communication skills Chinese as well as basic grammar.

SEMINAR FOR ACADEMIC LIFE
1. Summary of the course This course is to assist university freshmen in CRM designing to adapt university life well through the instruction and counselling of supervising professor. (This course is composed of self analysis, personality type test, career research, instruction for the success of university life, career plan and direction setting, CRM designing method and CRM designing. The course should be teaching in classes of the students by supervising professor.) 2. Course objectives This course is to motivate the students before the mid term exam and provide students with self analysis, personality type test (MBTI or TCI) and career research (YAT test). Also, this course shall has a plan to instruct the students to enhance the efficiency of university life through career and time management. In addition, this course is to make a chance for the students to have practical assistance to university life by providing study method, report designing strategy and the information on academic system and various kinds of internal programs of the university. After the mid term exam, the students will be instructed to set the direction of career designing through continuous counselling of supervising professor and the students will be able to establish CRM designing and execution plan.
