Dean of Cho Chun Shik Graduate School of Mobility

Countries worldwide are paying growing attention to carbon reduction and green growth in endeavors to overcome global warming and energy/resource shortages, which have intensified amid excessive, growth-driven development and reckless use of fossil fuels by mankind.

As a country relying heavily on imported fossil fuels, however, Korea will not easily be able to reduce its industrial carbon footprint and energy consumption beyond certain levels while maintaining the size of its economy. Against this backdrop, the development of highly viable low-carbon green transport systems is urgently needed.

Building low-carbon, low-energy transport systems require convergence-based interdisciplinary research in the fields of science and technology. In this sense, KAIST, which has gained world-class research capabilities in such fields as information technology, IT convergence, robotics, mechanical engineering, and construction/environmental engineering, is the right institution to lead these efforts.

Cho Chun Shik Graduate School of Mobility has been founded to enhance the linkages among various disciplines within basic and applied sciences and technologies-physics, electric/electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, material engineering, aerospace engineering, marine engineering, civil/environmental engineering, and business administration-and produce the world’s top transportation specialists who will develop state-of-the-art green transport technologies and take the lead in the future green transport industry.

For this purpose, Cho Chun Shik Graduate School of Mobility offers two major programs, “Transportation Technology” and “Transportation Operation and Management.” Each major flexibly provides different tracks as per academic needs, and the school recommends that all students have multiple research advisors in order to promote convergence-based, interdisciplinary education. At the same time, the school will make continued efforts to create and secure new growth engines for the future and to develop green transport technologies so that low-carbon green growth can be achieved on a sustainable basis.

Thank you very much.
