Industrial and management engineering, which is becoming increasingly important in modern society, is a future study for the creation of an industrial environment that prioritizes ‘productivity improvement’ and ‘quality of life’ through ‘system integration’ and ‘optimization’
The role of industrial engineering is changing due to recent changes in technology, globalization, shortening of product life cycle, and combination of products and services. Department of Industrial and Management Engineering at POSTECH aims to provide a knowledge base and skillset that enable the organization to achieve effective optimization and continuous improvement on the basis of traditional industrial engineering. To achieve this, we have divided into the following three research groups and studies are being organically carried out in harmony with each other.
POSTECH Industrial and Management Engineering Department not only contributes to strengthening competitiveness of Korean industry, but also strives to lead related engineering technology to become a leading university in the world.
