The Yonsei Institute of Convergence Technology(YICT) and the school of Integrated Technology(SIT) at Yonsei University, chosen by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning to implement the ICT Consilience Creative Program nurture “Renaissance Engineers” with comprehensive knowledge and expertise. Starting in 2011, the innovative education and research program has been training students to acquire broad and balanced insight into the multiple engineering fields, humanities, and arts, while providing them with unique opportunities including 100% tuition waiver, individualized 1:1 education, and international exchange programs.
YICT is promoting an evolution in information technology by improving the quality of human life through the development of innovative technologies. To achieve this, we have prepared an interdisciplinary research regime that bridges across wide areas of study and multi-disciplinary approaches. Our specialized 7-year program, which combines undergraduate and graduate studies, is an intensive research-centered program that provides opportunities for diverse and creative research.
YICT have become the incubator of Renaissance Engineers with the best support and educational research programs. Courses includes topics in engineering and laboratory experience along with subject requirements in the arts, humanities, social science and design (AHSD), as well as an intensive English competency requirement. Our innovative program provides 3 years of undergraduate study and 4 years of graduate study for a combined master’s/doctoral degree.
