TEL : +82-51-629-6122~5
FAX : +82-51-629-6126

The Major of Mechanical Engineering is the most fundamental and important field in mechanical-based industrial scopes. The objective of this major is to train students as technical experts in the information society of a technologyintensive industry. It teaches a modern concept of mechanical engineering based on computer applications including optimal design, manufacturing automation and precision, and artificial intelligence. Utilizing computers and software, CAD/CAM/CAE are instructed for design, manufacturing, and analysis. The concept and principle of CIM integrated with the planning, process design, and manufacturing automation of product manufacturing are instructed. The Energy System group is focused on the development of alternative sources of energy such as solar, fuel cell, and hydrogen energy. Energy conversion research areas such as combustion and heat exchanger systems and fluid power generation related to pump and turbo-machinery systems are also covered. Toward these goals, the theories and technologies of thermo-fluid systems engineering are instructed. Finally, it is the educational goal of this major to train specialists in machine design, manufacturing automation, and energy systems to lead mechanical engineering.
