Information and Communication Engineering

  • Information and Communication Engineering


General Introduction

Computer science and information technology have transformed human activities and societal infrastructures. They will continue to be an essential part of our daily living, and change the world for the better. The Department of Information and Communication Engineering (ICE) is very young, but it aims to become a world-class research-oriented department.

In further detail, ICE has chosen three major research areas in which it intends to pursue and achieve academic excellence: (1) Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), (2) Bio-medical Systems, and (3) Smart Connected Systems. ICE strives to not only develop core technology which will lead to a major breakthrough in the IT area, the department also conducts interdisciplinary research between various fields in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). ICE also performs research projects with other departments of DGIST, such as: robotics engineering, energy systems engineering, new materials science, neuroscience, and new biology.

Through those efforts, we believe that ICE will become nationally and internationally recognized in the near future.


Educational Objectives

The overall goals of the department are organizes as follows:

  • Providing creative talents through the convergence of ICT, science, engineering, society, culture, and the arts
  • Providing pioneering leadership for future industry through inter-disciplinary research and convergence education
  • Developing global professionals through research collaboration with world-renowned scholars
  • Encouraging independent problem-solving skills through student-organized and student-level conferences

Collaborative Research Centers

Cyber Physical Systems Global Center (CPS Global Center)


  • The CPS Global Center at DGIST, established in 2012, performs both fundamental research in developing new principles, models, and theories for CPS and inter-disciplinary research by applying CPS to a number of areas including smart homes, vehicles and transportation, and healthcare.
    It is one of the biggest centers in Korea dedicated to CPS research. The center has built a strong global research network with world-class researchers in the field, actively collaborating with 4 participating institutes in the USA: the University of Virginia, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, and Carnegie Mellon.
