Majors and Studies
System Software Major, Application Software Major
First established as the Department of Electronic Computation in 1971, the Department of Computer Software has since been the cradle of research and education for computer software. With the aim of producing skilled professionals for today’s information society, the Department conducts research and offers education in basic concepts, application and advanced technologies of the computer software field. Currently, there are two undergraduate labs being used for software and application experiments and an embedded Linux lab used both by undergraduate and graduate students. The Department also has multiple workstations and computers available for software experiments. It added computer game and information security courses in the curriculum in 2003, realizing the industrial trend and, added advanced telecommunications track in 2005. The undergraduate students can take advanced major courses starting from the 2nd semester of their 3rd year. The Department adopted the ABEEK (Accreditation Board for Engineering Education in Korea) system in 2002.
