The University of Science and Technology (UST) is a group of public sector universities and research institutions in Seoul and in all over South Korea. The UST was established in 2003 by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning as the nation’s graduate school specializing in science and engineering education and research. The UST runs only a graduate school. Creating the new driving force for growth would play a major role in leading national growth in the new century. The South Korean government established the UST to produce professionals in the field of combined technologies, thought of as one of the most important criteria for creating the driving force for South Korea’s national growth. Today, UST continues to develop itself into a major research university.
UST established courses that allow students to build experience in research fields. Lab rotation is an example. UST encourage students to get hands-on experience by actively participating in the research by awarding credits as well as minimizing classroom lectures. UST provide opportunities to participate in projects conducted by other institutions or private companies. UST also adopted Lab rotation programs which enable students to gain relevant experience in various research fields. Students take liberal arts classes as prerequisite so they can be well-grounded as leaders in their given research field, and provide them with insight into society in general.
