Designing the future of materials industry

The goal of Department of Materials Design Engineering is to educate students to be challenging and creative individuals capable of competing in global textile industries by providing knowledge-based education essential for the industry. Textile industry has been playing a key role as a leading and main industry in Korea in terms of export and employment for last decades and has been recently reformed to technology-driven industry based on a new paradigm such as smart textiles and wearable computer incorporated with stragically important technologies such as information technology(IT), nanotechnology(NT), biotechnology(BT), and culture technology(CT). To match up with this paradigm, our department pursues excellence in producing experts required for the highly value-added textile and fashion industry by innovating the curriculum on smart textile fields fused with IT, NT, and BT such as digital textile printing, textile CAD, and wearable computer, etc. Graduates with a master and/or a doctoral degree have working for research institutes and companies relating to textile materials, manufacturing, finishing, planning, trade, distribution, etc.
