Introduction to UST-KICT School

Construction technology is a key public technology that plans, designs, constructs, maintains and controls social infrastructure facilities that are essential to human life: housing, roads, bridges, rivers, dams, and airports among others. In addition, the construction industry brings with it huge economic and social impacts by conducting large-scale national projects. KICT is Korea's only government-funded construction research institute and with its various full scale experimental facilities and excellent research staff, it is contributing to the development of key national industries. Furthermore, UST-KICT School is focusing on the nurturing and growth of talented researchers who can combine construction and other related industries in order to better tackle the important issues in the ever-changing global construction industry in the 21st century and beyond.

Smart City & Construction Engineering With its innovative curriculum, the Smart City & Construction Engineering program aims to create urban engineering specialists who can fuse and converge advanced technologies and environmental technologies required for the construction of future cities into original and creative solutions for urban problems. The future city system will be developed into a sustainable city system based on the "Cyber Physical System," which utilizes AI, IoT, ICT, Big Data and other advanced technologies, and the "Eco-friendly Physical System," which can improve existing infrastructure construction technologies through eco-friendly approaches. To nurture fusion-convergence solution specialists who can solve such urban issues by understanding and integrating the whole scope of planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and controlling future cities, the program's curriculum is carefully divided into three major concentrations: Construction Environment Engineering, Transportation and Logistics System & ITS Engineering, and Geotechnical and Geo-Space Engineering. The program will be particularly geared not only toward Korean students but also toward prospective foreign students with whom KICT can share Korea's construction experience, expertise, and potential. Finally, KICT plans to develop a Contract program reflecting the needs of the industry.
Construction Environment Engineering The major concentration for Construction Environment Engineering offers detailed courses on advanced wastewater treatment, advanced water supply treatment, water processing recycling, groundwater and soil recovery, and basin environment management and other environmental engineering and water resources. Students will be offered theory and hands-on learning opportunities through running and managing a pilot plant created for the program's lectures and research on basic theories.
Transportation and Logistics System & ITS Engineering The major concentration for Transportation and Logistics System & ITS Engineering allows students to conduct research on theoretical and technical aspects of planning, establishing and evaluating the national transportation system, service designs, management, profit managements, and in-service managements. Furthermore, students will be offered a comprehensive education on the technologies and applications of advanced transportation and distribution via KICT's research facilities - including the Advanced Road & Traffic Laboratory.
Geotechnical & Geo-Space Engineering The major concentration for Geotechnical and Geo-Space Engineering allows students to engage in full-scale basic research in exploring and identifying the dynamic behavior of geotechnical properties and the various theories required for the engineering applications. Based on such theoretical research, students will be promoted to develop a range of technologies to maximize the use of limited national land and also to research geotechnical engineering technologies under extreme conditions or future-oriented space environments such as the Moon or Mars.
