TBL is an innovative teaching method of consecutively running a class in the following order: creating video lectures, video learning through remote bilateral communication, and attending off-line classroom lectures.
SeoulTech revamped its engineering departments inside the college (Departments of Fusion Mechanical Engineering and Architecture Environment Fusion Engineering) creating a system wherein students choose their majors after their first year of studies. This new system will start on the 2019 school year. The university plans to select and admit a total of 240 students to the Departments of Health Care, Culture and Arts, English Language and Literature, and Venture Business Administration, among others, for the said school year.
College dean Kim Seong-gon said: “I believe it is a legitimate responsibility of a public university to establish a lifelong education system and provide educational opportunities to various members of the society. We will provide adult learning opportunities for continued self-growth and development in preparation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
