EE-X initiative
"Promoting Next-generation Convergence Reserach"

The next-generation research will be led by convergence with various fields of study. We are interested in discovering new innovative engineering products as well as new scientific findings by applying core EE technologies to multiple fields of study, including biomedical, robotics, and IoT.

Many of our faculty members are already actively involved in interdisciplinary research and contributing to the field through both academic and industrial breakthroughs. Faculty involved in interdisciplinary research have prepared a 15-min lecture on their core research results along with a short clip of video to introduce their labs.

In addition, we have invited world-renowned researchers in each of the dedicated topics over two-day seminar series. In this seminar series, we not only hear about the state-of-the-art research but also discuss the future direction of this field in an exciting panel discussion.
