The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at Seoul National University offers world-class research and education programs. The current enrollment in the department is about 400 undergraduate and over 300 graduate students. Students are studying in state-of-the-art facilities with 30 internationally renowned faculty members.
Facilities including multimedia classrooms, an electronic library, and a hardware-software project laboratory are open to students all around the year. The department operates a computer research center to foster industry collaborations where many students are involved in research projects. CSE uses various modern teaching methods to train future researchers and engineers in traditional and emerging fields of computer science and engineering. We particularly emphasize training in leadership, collaboration, and creativity.
CSE plays a leading role in research and education of emerging areas in computers science and engineering such as mobile computing, multimedia, computer games, graphics, embedded systems, bio-computing, ubiquitous computing, e-Business, cryptography and security. CSE also continues to excel in core computer science areas such as software systems, networks, and computational theory.
The department has international exchange programs in research and education with top universities around the globe. The current exchange program includes universities and research institutions in the United States, Europe, Japan, and many other countries around the world. The exchange program has been active at both student and faculty level for many years.
CSE graduates develop careers in both academia and industry. Many of them start their career in world-class companies such as Samsung and LG. In addition, many venture companies have been successfully launched by our graduates.
Building upon our long tradition as a young, creative, and confidence-building department, I, as the head of CSE, will consistently pursue the ABC of CSE’s goals: Academic excellence, Best in Education, and Collaboration with other disciplines and industry.
We welcome young and enthusiastic students from all around the world to study and research with us at CSE.
