The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) at the Yonsei University offers top-ranked education programs in Korea. More than 9,000 alumni of our school during nearly 70 years of history have been leading technology advances in electrical, electronic, and microwave engineering that have become the main thrust of economy growth of Korea. The current form of school was established in March, 2002, after merging three departments, the Department of Electrical Engineering (founded in 1950), the Department of Electronic Engineering (founded in 1969), and the Department of Microwave Engineering (founded in 1992). We foster advanced education programs to produce well-prepared graduates who will lead their roles in the rapidly evolving future.
The School of EEE currently includes 60 faculty members, 720 graduate students, and 1,400 undergraduate students. The research and education programs of our school are constantly ranked #1 in Korea in electrical and electronic engineering areas. In particular, our graduate school has been funded by Brain Korea 21 (BK21) and PLUS projects for more than a decade by the Ministry of Science and Technology of Korea. These projects helped us grow as a world-class research and educational institute.
We recently restructured our research organization into three groups to adapt to rapid industry changes; eMerging eLectronics (ML), Intelligent and Biomedical Systems (IBS), and InfoTelligence (IT). We believe such efforts will establish multi-disciplinary research environment and also strengthen education programs. We will continue to strive to grow our research reputation in the world and expand collaboration with diverse academic, industry, government organizations.
The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering serves arduously to promote Yonsei’s mission based on Christianity and guide students to become engineering leaders in the world.
