For the past decade, domestic engineering schools weighed SCI dissertation publication more heavily in university evaluations, yielding a world-class research level. However, such an approach resulted in placing less importance on entrepreneurship, commercialization, or creating economic values.


As a result, engineering Professors have been evaluated as being too focused on theoretical SCI dissertation research rather than practical research that could yield economic benefits through commercialization of developed technology. In addition, some have criticized that engineering universities have not educated creative researchers demanded by the industry.

 
KAIST has begun responding to these criticisms and has made a few suggestions to strengthen engineering education, promote entrepreneurship in engineers, and globalize Korean venture companies.

 
As part of such efforts, KAIST established the KAIST Education and Research Innovation Committee, composed of various individuals from the industry, research institutes, alumni, faculty members, and others, to discuss ways to reinforce engineering education.

 


A course to encourage entrepreneurship will be implemented.
