Introduction to Department

As sciences, technologies and human civilizations progress, what is sought in the areas of future applied technologies and engineering are precision, speediness, sturdiness and automation, which are critical elements and goals in the era of technology competition. Applications include advanced precision Instrumentation system of high performance such as high-quality product production and general purpose system such as MEMS, automated production in production line through man-less automation technology, CAD/CAM, CIM, aeronautical space control and robot system to replace human labor, etc.

As a mechatronics organically connecting and researching mechanical engineering, control engineering, electronic engineering and computational science, control and Instrumentation engineering will be the core to lead the 21st century highly developed society of sciences and technologies where these sources are systemically applied to high-performance system control, ROBOT SYSTEM, Instrumentation-related system, aero-nautical system and plant automation system.

Hence, the department provides education and research through theories and practice and affiliates with excellent facilities and research projects available at the near Daedeok Science Complex to produce the country's best experts and scholars in the area of control engineering as one of the most advanced engineering subjects in Korea.
