Career Opportunities after Graduation
In modern society, the use of electrical energy and the processing of electrical signals for information transmission have become an integral part of human life, and relevant graduates are in greater demand than any other field. It shows the highest employment rate every year in various fields such as large companies, and in addition, emerging fields such as smart grid, eco-friendly energy, electric vehicles, semiconductors and robots. Main employed fields are wide as like power generation and transmission and distribution associated power industry, electrical equipment manufacturing and development, power electronics applications, industrial equipment manufacturing and development, factory automation and control applications, microprocessor application areas related hardware and software, semiconductor and electrical and electronic materials related fields, electrical and electronic components manufacturing and development, communication and security related fields, building and construction etc. Graduates have been employed by leading companies in Korea, like Korea Electric Power Corporation, Korea Electrical Safety Corporation, Korea Energy Management Corporation, District Heating Corporation, Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power, Samsung Electronics, Samsung Electro-Mechanics, Samsung Techwin, LG Electronics, LSIS, LS Cable, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Samsung. It also includes most of Korea's representative companies, including heavy industry, Hyosung Heavy Industries, Hyundai Engineering, GS E & C, Daewoo E & C, ABB, Siemens, Yokogawa, and venture companies. Not only these companies, but also many national / private research institutes such as Korea Electric Power Research Institute, Korea Electric Research Institute, Electronic Component Research Institute, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, and Korea Railroad Research Institute. On the other hand, graduates can get a job as a 7th and 5th grade electrician civil officers, and work as a professor and researcher by researching related disciplines if they continue on to the graduate school and complete an advanced curriculum. During or after graduation, students can get the certifications such as electrician, electrician, engineer and patent attorney and with them, they can be become competent professionals at large companies
Prospects and Vision
The academic area of electrical engineering is not limited to one particular concept, supply of electrical energy, signal processing, semiconductors and electrical materials, but are constantly at the center of convergence and creation of new concepts as like development of eco-friendly electric energy, ICT convergence control system, intelligent electric vehicle, high speed magnetic levitation electric railway, bio signal and bio equipment, medical and silver robot, artificial intelligence, advanced automation plant design, intelligent structure safety diagnosis, etc.
Since the boundaries between academic fields are blurred and form a close complementary relationship with diversity in the 21st century, knowledge-based information society, it is the reality that only one discipline has extreme difficulty to be used and studied independently
From its starting point to the present, the field of electrical engineering leads a comprehensive understanding of technology that can be integrated with various engineering disciplines such as energy-related technology, computer utilization, system control, semiconductor properties, robotics, and information and communication. For that reason, it is considered to have played the most important role in achieving the rapid development of the modern industrial society, and it is a field that can foster professional talents who can creatively adapt to the rapidly changing tide.
Electrical engineering will play a leading role to develop safer production and distribution methods of electrical energy, administration and industrial economy of modern countries regarding its efficient usage in the development of application of energy storage technology, and the development and application of renewable energy, low pollution environment equipment, and advanced transportation equipment including electric vehicles. Also, it provides the education of basic theory related to facilitate automation and factory automation system which aims to increase cost savings and efficiency of home appliances that are necessary to keep citizens' daily lives convenient and andcomfortable and protect information in communication system. In addition to that it also educates basic theories related to computers and information and communication systems, and technology development for its design, manufacture and operation
The vision of the major of electrical engineering is expected to be very bright and stable because the future technological advances in the field of electrical engineering are predicted to play a huge role in determining the economic level of a country.
