Department of Industrial & Management Engineering

Information Systems, Operations Research, Systems Engineering and Industrial Engineering, Finance and Financial Management

Summary

Ever since its establishment in 1986, POSTECH has stayed true to its role in Korean higher education as a pioneer in science and technology research. Located in the city of Pohang, the 400-acre, park-like campus is home to the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory and minutes away from POSCO, the fourth-largest steelmaking company in the world. POSTECH has come a long way in its short history to become globally recognized as one of Asia’s premier universities and among the most selective, highly ranked research universities in Korea.

POSTECH IME is made up of 26 faculty members including Emeritus, 152 undergraduate, 83 graduate students, and 8 administration staff members.  The Department is pursuing an understanding of engineering technology and management by combining the contents of business administration with the existing industrial engineering field. While Industrial Engineering deals with the systematic planning, design, and optimization of complex industrial systems, Industrial and Management Engineering extends its coverage to more comprehensive fields, including the service industry, information industry, and management science. 

The mission of IME is to cultivate creative leaders in the era of convergence and innovation based on the core competencies of POSTECH. To achieve this mission, we focus on providing specialized education and research programs based on the unique strengths of the Department; conducting research that significantly contributes to the academia and to the industry; and fostering the development of young talents with systems thinking capability, passion, and humanity.

Bachelor Programs

Industrial and Management Engineering improves the efficiency and productivity of work processes. It uses science and technology to properly manage all kinds of resources including human resources, and analyzes and designs complex systems of economy and society. Industrial and Management Engineering includes various types of knowledge such as optimization, economics, business administration, statistics, and computer and science engineering, and is applied to information, logistics, manufacturing, production and quality management, and economic, management, and financial systems. Graduates may choose to pursue their career in business management, investment banking, government agencies, consulting, and business creation, or select to be academic scholars in the related fields.

The undergraduate curriculum provides the engineering system analysis training needed to plan, design, and implement complex economic or technical management systems that require scientific and engineering background knowledge. Also the curriculum allows students to have a deeper level of professional understanding in the area by choosing one of the two key areas: industrial engineering and management engineering. Based on basic courses of engineering Mathematics, engineering foundation, general physics and chemistry, the curriculum mainly deals with product engineering, computer and science engineering, information systems, human factor engineering, quality engineering, production management, optimization, probability, statistics, and finance. Through these curriculum, students will be able to learn a variety of areas, and after the junior year, they will be able to select areas of interest and concentrate on them.

Master Programs

Recent environmental changes such as developments in technology, globalization, shortened product life cycles, and the combination of products and services have changed the role of industrial engineering. The Department of Industrial and Management Engineering provides a program in the management field on the basis of traditional industrial engineering. Industrial and Management Engineering aims to provide a knowledge base and skillset that enable organizations to achieve effective optimization and continuous improvement.

Therefore, the Graduate School of Industrial and Management Engineering has three research groups: SDM (System Design Management), OIM (Operations & Information Management) and STM (Strategic Technology Management). Under the three research groups, education and research are conducted focusing on seven key areas: product lifecycle engineering, human factor engineering / human computer interaction, management science and SCM, data mining, financial engineering, service science and strategic technology management. Available to graduate students who are selected as teaching or research assistants by their advisors.
