Welcome to the College of Engineering website! 
College of Engineering offers some of the most exciting career opportunities. We are educating technological, professional and personal skills for resolving the engineering topics faced in the near future.

Our faculty and our students thrive in an environment of new concept and technologies that expand the understanding of science, engineering and architecture. In addition to bringing up a competitive leader in engineering and architecture education, we endeavor to fulfill our university¡¯s mission of ¡°Empirical Tradition¡±.

Established in 1947, Kangwon National University (KNU) has focused on procuring and cultivating local talents. In 1979, the College of Engineering was instituted. Today, we offer 11 undergraduate of two divisions and seven departments, and the corresponding graduate programs. Every engineering major except architectural major (five-year course) offers a ¡°fast-track¡± program that allows students to earn a bachelor¡¯s and a master¡¯s degree in engineering in five years. More than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students take courses taught by faculty members and we proudly boast more than 20,000 alumni.

The college of Engineering in KNU strives to foster world-class engineers and architects through educational programs corresponding to ABEEK (Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea) and KAAB (Korea Architectural Accrediting Board). And the college forges the Industry-University Cooperation Programs for expanding the theoretical understanding to field experience and as well as the International Student Exchange Programs for globalization of technology and education. It was reported that the College of Engineering was ranked in fourth place among Korean Universities at CWTS Leiden Ranking 2016.

We are constantly trying to fulfill the KNU mottos of empirical tradition and open campus, and to meet the technical and educational demand of the day. We establish the differentiated specialty strategies of university on the education and research, and accomplish a training university toward world future market of technology and creativity, continuous improvement. We¡¯ll keep trying to integrate the engineering education and research programs, and to deliver the engineering and creative technology of new concept.
