SUNGKYUNKWAN UNIVERSITY

 

Founded in 1398 by royal decree SKKU has a history of excellence and tradition. Aligned with Samsung, SKKU also has strong links with industry. As an institution SKKU is a blend of forward-looking modernism and ancient tradition, the perfect place for Electrical and Computer Engineering majors to learn about Korean culture and its role in Korea's incredible rise in the global marketplace.

Engineering students study at the Suwon campus not far from Seoul. Suwon, a world heritage site, is also refreshingly cosmopolitan with much to see and do.

Students take all their Electrical Engineering courses in English. There are also optional Korean language courses offered to foreign students who enjoy this chance to deepen their cultural understanding and immersion in Korean culture.
