Educational Purpose
Sogang University Graduate School of Information & Technology was established to nurture talents with competence in global age through reeducation from professionals who are working in information and technology industrial sites. Sogang University has been leading the age by securing excellent faculties, strict and rational education management, practice supremacy of education and strives to raise information technology professionals with global competence.

Specialization of Education
(1) Excellent faculties and strict education management

Excellent faculties from Sogang University Department of Computer Engineering and Electronic Engineering and invited lecturers with practical experience and outstanding ability are teaching at Sogang University Graduate School of Information & Technology. Through development of strategic courses, open lectures that are suitable for recent trends and every year enforce development of textbooks along with the guidance of full-time faculties. Also along with strict education management of Sogang University, raise students’ participation for the lectures and create academic atmosphere with rational management of academic performances.

(2) Guaranteed qualitative lectures

With the limited seats for the lecture, the specialization of graduate school lectures can be seen as mutual communication between students and faculties, which the qualities of the lectures are guaranteed so the school is proud of its satisfaction from the students.

(3) English lectures by native speakers

Every semester open lecture called “English for IT Professionals” that educates English presentation skills and communication skills which are necessary as IT professionals from native speakers. This lecture enhances practical skills in English based on presentation and discussion related to IT related topics.

(4) Strengthen support services for student lectures

In order to ease the academic stress and inconvenience of time for students who are mainly office workers, record lectures that are opened and provide “online lecture service” to create inspiration for desire to learn and enhance academic atmosphere.

(5) Scholarship support

Every semester to over 40% of enrolled students, provide scholarships for academic excellence, scholarships for executives and scholarships for government officials and military (20% of enrollment fee).

(6) Open joint lecture with AhnLab business team - "Specialized Lecture on Information Security"

Every week, elite practical professionals from AhnLab are holding lectures as team teaching on topics to gain live information and confrontation strategies of all problems in practical fields such as information security, security trend, security plan and so on.

(7) Support human network through various student activities

Build up close human resources network and opportunities to spend time to reeducate and recharge through enrolled students and alumni activities such as gatherings with alumni, homecoming day, night of information and technology and so on. Besides with continuous support towards the students, encourage group study activities with the purpose to study and obtain certifications.

Areas of Specialization
