'The Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering is leading human civilization into the future.'
The Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering is divided into "Civil and Environmental Engineering" that discusses planning, designing, construction and inspection of roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, airports, harbors, watercourses and dams in key industries as well as various environmental improvement projects related to water and sewage management, waste water disposal, air pollution and environmental impact assessment techniques that are being emphasized both domestically and globally and "Architectural Engineering" that discusses architectural structure design, construction and inspection of high-rise intelligent buildings as well as building structures to create an optimal functional, artistic and cultural space of life for people in the twenty-first century with advanced scientific technologies. These are also fields of study that will lead human civilization in the future through the combination of other related fields of study.
Celebrating its 45th anniversary since its establishment in December 1963, the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering has become the best department in this field in Korea and 25 faculty members, approximately 410 undergraduate students and 130 graduate students are leading this department currently.
“Academic adviser system for each school year” and “Interview system recommended by the dean” have been established for self-development, social contribution and open education of faculty members through continuous research and volunteer activities of full-time faculty members on the campus, promoting the improvement of undergraduate students' academic ability. The Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering holds small and large academic conferences off the campus every year, promotes the orientation for major courses through cooperation with the College of Engineering, produces and distributes brochures in both Korean and English, and carries out information activities targeting high school students actively. The major courses related to 7 key fields include structural engineering, architectural structure engineering, construction and material engineering, ground engineering, water resource engineering, environmental engineering, traffic engineering and GIS field, and climate and energy engineering. The main purpose of the Department is to educate and equip students with essential knowledge and applied technologies in these fields. And, the Graduate School of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering is a top-class research-based graduate school, and approximately 1/4 of graduates from the undergraduate program enter the graduate school to continue with advanced studies. The master's course and doctorate course are available in the 7 fields of study mentioned above (structural engineering, architectural structure engineering, construction and material engineering, ground engineering, water resource engineering, environmental engineering and climate and energy engineering), and the combined master's and doctorate course is also available. In the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering, research projects totaling approximately 2.5 billion KRW are carried out through attached research institutes including Research Institute for Mega Structures, Institute of Underground Space Technology, Engineering Research Center For Disaster Prevention Science & Technology and Research Institute for Environmental Technology & Sustainable Development, focusing on studies related to high-rise buildings, the development of structural performance-based design methods through experiments and the analysis of building structures and the development of construction automation and high-tech building materials through the convergence of advanced technologies such as IT, NT, RT and traditional building material fields. All faculty members and research students are engaged in important efforts to develop new construction methods and lead the field through research projects.
