Fostering Talents with Smart Leadership

Kyungil University, where students always enjoy themselves, places top priority on "students happiness" while planning the academic curriculum according to the will of founders and establishing the educational administration system.

In addition, we have created a virtuous circle model in which universities and corporations develop together by ensuring that they have an outstanding industry-university collaboration system that allows them not only to choose the companies they want but also to secure excellent talents.

Kyungil University has achieved remarkable results in that, as a result of its consistent endeavor, it has topped the Ministry of Education’s employment statistics survey (based on more than 1,000 graduates) which had been conducted for all national and private universities in Daegu and Gyeongbuk Province. In terms of industry view, Kyungil University was honored to be ranked as the best university in four areas which include software, machine, automobile, and architecture in the areas of Daegu, Gyeongbuk Province, and Gangwon Province.

In the evaluation of employment and entrepreneurial capabilities of 269 universities nationwide, conducted by The Korea Economic Daily, Kyungil University was ranked 11th in the overall rankings after Seoul National University. In Daegu, Gyeongbuk, Busan, Gyeongnam, Gangwon, and Ulsan areas, it ranked second after POSTECH. In addition, its project for the industry-university cooperation (LINC+) was selected, and then it was rated as the best university in the nation in the evaluation of the leading entrepreneurial universities, with its start-up project selected for 8 consecutive years. It has also been chosen as a university for the lifelong education system support project and has been evaluated as an excellent university for employment and start-up, that is, job creation, while carrying out various national projects.

In recent years, KIU has established the KIU Unmanned Aerial Education Center and the KIU Railroad Academy, in addition to the KIU Autonomous Vehicle Convergence Technology Research Institute which has developed fully autonomous driving technology for the second time in Korea, thereby jumping up to become a university that nurtures top elites who will lead the fourth industrial revolution.

Kyungil University now ushers in the 'Students’ 365-day Happiness' era. 'Students’ 365-day Happiness' is a firm commitment of both me and the school staff to make students happy all the time, 365 days a year. Kyungil University will continue to present a new paradigm of university education in Korea, based on 'Students’ 365-day Happiness'.

You are more than welcome to visit the website of Kyungil University, where ‘students are always happy for 365 days’.
Thank you.

Hyun Tae Chung, President
