As an engine of Korea’s industrialization, the machinery industry has had a great influence on other industries. To continue to respond to new environments and paradigms, it is essential to nurture the talents in mechanical engineering who will lead innovation in the top 5 fields (automobile, IT device, plant, shipbuilding & marine, digital appliance).
Korea’s global top 5 mechanical fields have shifted their strategy from chasing advanced countries to developing and accumulating new mechanical technologies, and actively distributing knowledge. As they enter this advanced stage, creative engineering ability, not just manufacturing and assembling products, has become all the more important in developing cutting-edge technologies.
According to reports released by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, the machinery industry creates high added value, and for this reason it is urgently necessary to develop the high-quality workforce needed in this field.
To this end, it is necessary to nurture the creative talents who will lead new design and production technologies for industries, and who will contribute to the economic growth of this country.
