In order to keep up with the world-wide trend and to make the most of the interdisciplinary nature, Department of Metallurgical Engineering and Department of Ceramic Engineering were integrated in 1999 into School of Materials Science and Engineering (SMSE) with two Majors. In 2002, upon the regional and national industrial demands Optoelectronic Materials Major was additionally established. SMSE is currently constituted of about 360 undergraduate 80 graduate students, and 17 faculty members. Since 2007 SMSE has implemented ABEEK curriculum and Materials Science and Engineering Program was officially accredited in 2014.
The students are encouraged to aim for the comprehensive knowledge and understanding of Materials Science and Engineering in general until 4th year when they choose a Major to focus on. For the last decade or so SMSE has run the major large-scale education programs such as NURI, LINC, and CK-1, which provide undergraduates with scholarships and opportunities for language and engineering training courses (6 Sigma, TRIZ etc), industrial internships, domestic and international excursions etc.
The undergraduate students are also greatly benefited by the research experience provided by the Laboratories operated by the faculty members. Their research activities, indicated by the eminent national projects such as Engineering Research Center (ERC), Priority Research Center (PRC), Get-Future, and BrainKorea21 Four as well as numerous industrial projects and collaborations, are further supported by the continued studies in the graduate course of the motivated undergraduate students.
