SeoulTech will reorganize the engineering departments of the College of Multidisciplinary Studies toward the Future (Department of Mechanical Convergence Engineering and Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering) into a school of engineering to recruit students. A total of 240 new students will be recruited to join the College of Multidisciplinary Studies toward the Future, including the Department of Healthcare, the Department of Culture and Arts Business, the Department of English Cultural Studies, and the Department of Entrepreneurship and Venture Management.
Professor Kim Seong-gon, the Dean of the SeoulTech College of Multidisciplinary Studies toward the Future, stated: "I think that a national university has an obvious responsibility to establish a lifelong learning system for various members of a society and to provide them with educational opportunities. To prepare for the Fourth Industrial Revolution era, we will provide adults with learning opportunities for continuous self-growth and self-development."
