 Message From the Department Head

Welcome to the website of the department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.

After the industrial revolution, human society faces accelerated pace of progress and innovation. Now we are at the point in time when there`s a huge paradigm shift in industry. Along with the high-tech manufacturing industries such as semiconductor and LCD, service industries which include telecommunication, finance, information and transportation are reaching their peak over the traditional textile, steel, machine, shipbuilding, automobile and electronic industry. Henceforth, a new paradigm of manufacturing and service industry is expected to be thriving in accordance with the technical advancements in bio and medical, Nano, and information technologies.
Recently, the terminology-"Innovation" is frequently used by both foreign and local companies and governments. In the age of limitless competition, we need to be constantly innovative for survival. Furthermore, due to the continuous evolution of technology and economy, numerous constituents of all social and economic strata and sectors are massed and organically connected so that they form a huge and complex "Socio-Technical System". As Industrial and Systems Engineering is the origin of conducting "Innovation" and "Problem Solving in A Systematic Way", it`s our responsibility to revive the "Spirit of Innovation" and "Systematic Thinking".

As the head of the department at this critical time, I will strive to make our department a place to raise "Agents of Innovation" and "Socio-Technical, Systematic Troubleshooters". Also, we will try very hard to lead the relevant research to become a best department in the world.
