Faculty of Electronic and Computer Engineering


Major in Electronic Engineering

The Department of Electronic Engineering develops technicians armed with the expertise in hardware technology fields (IoT, robots, sensors, drones, unmanned vehicles, etc.), IT electronics, and fusion/integrated technology industries all deemed essential for the 4th industrial revolution. The Department combines the IT, electronics, and display technology owned by corporations located in the Gumi area to produce highly qualified experts required in the IT and electronics fusion industry as well as the national defense and electronics industry. To ensure students can carry out tasks in the electronics and communication sector, the Department provides education on foundational theory, practical subjects, the fundamentals of applied technology, etc. By doing so, it helps students seek employment in a wide variety of fields such as designing, testing, and on-site manufacturing. The Department also assumes that students will be looking to find employment on the global stage. As such, it aims to develop professionals with the basic language skills, cosmopolitan outlook, and creativity that can help them fit perfectly in the field.

Thanks to agreements with Samsung and LG affiliates near the Gumi area, the Department trains students with the technology required at such companies. This can be understood as a “pre-job” program that produces personnel tailored to specific corporations which leads to easier employment. Since 2016, the University began working with the Gumi National Industrial Complex. At the industrial-academic fusion campus, students attend lectures and practical lessons in liaison with corporations at the Complex using cutting-edge practical equipment, experiment equipment, and application software. In doing so, the Department trains expert personnel who can contribute to the future of the electronics and communications industries by offering technical education students can apply immediately in the field. With special lectures on English and other professional subjects, the Department helps students improve their foundational skills and earn at least one professional certificate, which can help them perform their duties at their future places of employment. The exclusive professor mentoring system also guides students in a specific way that can help students find companies they really want to work for. Moreover, this program is part of the LINC+ project hosted by the government. As such, it guarantees over 40 job placements at companies in the EMC and PCB design fields as soon as students begin their studies at the University.

Major in Computer Software

The Department of Computer Software develops computer programmers equipped with the programming capacity and software development ability required in the fields of artificial intelligence which offers a bright future in today’s era of the 4th industrial revolution, IoT, robotics engineering, and software development.

Major in Information and Communication

Gumi University was selected to take part in the “Growth Engine Specialization Project.” The University was also awarded KRW 4.6 billion in funds over four years, which was used to build six laboratories equipped with outstanding amenities comparable to a luxury hotel and state-of-the-art equipment including equipment for next-generation mobile communications technology. To date, the University has 50 industrial-academic cooperation agreements with leading high-tech IT companies to offer students with opportunities for field placement or internship programs.

The Ministry of Education approved an intensive program that awards students with their bachelor’s degrees after their second year at Gumi University. For the remaining two years, students can attend night classes or weekend classes while they work, which relieves the pressure of having to study and work at the same time. Currently, Gumi University remains the only University offering a program in information and communication in the Daegu and Gyeongsangbuk-do area. Moreover, the Department of Information and Communication has an exclusive professor mentorship system where professors guide students through every step of their University experience - from admission to employment. Classes at the Department revolve around practical field work using high-tech equipment.
