    About the Program

    Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) was established in 1971 as the nation’s first graduate school specializing in science and engineering education and research. The school’s founding was a catalyst for Korea’s rapid rise from a producer of light industry goods to a world leader in high-technology industries. The university is gaining prominence in the world’s academic society with notable research results produced by highly qualified faculty. In 2008, KAIST was ranked 95th among top 200 universities of the world in the prestigious Times Higher Education-QS World University rankings. It was ranked 34th in the area of Engineering and Information Technology, 46th in Natural Science, and 134th in Biological Sciences and Biotechnology. In domestic rankings compiled by the major daily JoongAng Ilbo, it topped the list of entire Korean universities for four consecutive years from 1998 to 2001. In 2008 KAIST was chosen as the No. 1 Asian University in science and technology by the Hong Kong-based newsmagazine Asiaweek.
