Introduction to the KU-KIST Graduate School of Converging Science and Technology
The KU-KIST Graduate School of Converging Science and Technology is a professional graduate school established to foster
the world’s best experts in IT-nanoscience (IT-NS) and bio-med by integrating BT, IT, and NT with cutting-edge medical tech-
nology and to carry out integrated education and research between Korea University (KU) and the Korea Institute of Science
and Technology (KIST).
- A graduate school fostered by the best professors and researchers of Korea University and the Korea Institute of Science
and Technology leading the IT-NS and bio-med fields.
- We provide monthly stipends and full scholarships to all students.
- We provide diverse educational and research opportunities to students, such as joint research with distinguished universities
and companies in Korea and abroad, overseas dispatch, and internships.
- We actively make use of the advanced research infrastructure of the Korea Institute of Science and Technology to guide the
research of students for them to draw more advanced research achievements during their studies for a degree.
