KAIST (formerly the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), is located in DaedeokInnopolis, Daejeon, South Korea. KAIST was established by the Korean government in 1971 as the nation's first research oriented science and engineering institution. The QS-The Times World University Rankings in the year of 2009 placed KAIST 69th overall and 21st in technology. The most recent 2011 QS World University Rankingshowever, ranked KAIST as 90th overall, and 27th in Engineering and IT.
KAIST was founded with government funding and was initially staffed with a number of Korean engineering and science talents educated in the United States. From the onset, the emphasis has been in theoretical as well as applied research. KAIST continues to be Korea's foremost center of strategic research and development (R&D) projects. The University helped pioneer the establishment of competitive research oriented graduate school programs in Korea.
The University's some 540 faculty conducts research in cooperation with academies and industries all over the world. KAIST offers grants and fellowships to international students. • KAIST president, Nam PyoSuh, is an authority in axiomatic design technology. Soon-Heung Chang, a nuclear scientist, serves as provost and Ji-won Yang, a chemical engineer, as vice president for external affairs.
The vast majority of professors come from US higher education institutions] The school engages in many international programs with leading European and Asian universities. The university is a member of LAOTSE, an international network of universities in Europe and Asia. It is also a member of the Association of East Asian Research Universities.
KAIST was established under the name of Korea Advanced Institute of Science (KAIS) under a special law on February 16, 1971, as the first research oriented graduate school in science and engineering in Korea. In 1989, KAIST established the education/research system of special talents in science and engineering fields in bachelor, master and doctoral degrees. Students accepted into the extraordinarily competitive program, were exempt from military duty, but required to remain in Korea for 5 years following graduation, to prevent brain drain. All other Koreans, of college age, are required to do military duty, unless they are in college, then they must report for military duty soon afterward.
Over the past four decades, KAIST has evolved into a global research university. The University’s strong faculty conducts internationally recognized research in cooperation with academic institutions and industries all over the world. KAIST offers generous grants and fellowships to international students, promoting Korea as a global educational power. • Over the past four decades, KAIST has evolved into a global research university.

With its test-free admission system, first in Korea, KAIST recruits students on the basis of their overall high-school grades, math and science grades, teacher recommendations, study plan, personal statement, and other data that demonstrate their excellence. Scores from the state-run scholastic aptitude test are not considered. KAIST is currently making changes in the admissions policy with special emphasis on personality, responsibility, and creativity. This multi-pronged and flexible admission procedure enables KAIST to recruit students of well-rounded personality.
KAIST has produced many young doctors in their 20s through the Integrated Master’s and Doctoral Program and Early Completion System. KAIST requires candidate students to publish their papers in globally renowned academic journals to ensure high quality of their doctoral dissertation. KAIST students take strongly research-oriented classes in which teaching and research activities are simultaneously conducted.
Scholarships are given to all students in the bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate programs. Doctoral students are exempted from Korea’s compulsory military service duty. On-campus dormitories are provided for all students who wish to use them.
Research Institutes • Research at KAIST focuses on basic science and technological innovation that will have the greatest impact on industrial society. Eight KAIST Institutes (KIs) have been set up to concentrate the University’s research capabilities in advanced fields. Each KI is operated as an independent research center at the level of a college, receiving financial and facility support. The eight research institutes are KI for BioCentury, KI for Information Technology Convergence, KI for Design of Complex Systems, KI for Entertainment Engineering, KI for the NanoCentury, KI for Eco-Energy, KI for Urban Space and Systems, and KI for Optical Science and Technology.
KAIST is currently conducting research projects commissioned by the government and private businesses with research grants totaling 463 billion won (US$320 million). In terms of ownership of intellectual property rights, KAIST holds 2,694 domestic patents and 723 international patents.
Graduates • KAIST has educated 33,380 outstanding scientists and engineers over the last 37 years, producing 6,867 Ph.D. graduates, 17,911 master’s degree holders and 8,602 bachelor’s degree holders (Table 1). Of the Ph.D. holders, 43 percent were in their twenties upon graduation. KAIST graduates are working in universities, businesses and research institutes as well as in some of the most prestigious schools abroad.
KAIST graduates teach and conduct research at MIT, UCLA, Harvard, Pennsylvania State, GIT and other universities. Major business establishments, including Samsung, SK Telecom, LG, Hyundai and NHN, employ large numbers of KAIST graduates. Among Korea’s state-run research organizations, the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology (KRICT) and many others are staffed by KAIST graduates.
KAIST has a job placement rate of nearly 100 percent. KAIST graduates account for 20 percent of all engineering doctorates in Korea and make up 10 percent of all engineering professorships in Korea. Nearly 25 percent of the R&D personnel at Samsung Semiconductor are KAIST graduates. Graduates have set up about 360 venture businesses that deal with modern technologies. A recent employer satisfaction survey conducted at companies hiring KAIST graduates showed that 91 percent were satisfied, while 93 percent showed interest in employing KAIST graduates.
Research and Academic Activities • KAIST professors had 1,716 publications listed in science citation index (SCI) journals in 2008 or nearly four papers per professor per year. KAIST professors conduct advanced contract researches that average nearly 200 million won (US$ 200,000) per professor. Academic journals such as Nature and Science evaluated KAIST in 1993 as having the potential to be one of the world’s best educational institutions.
