  • The Graduate School of Knowledge Service Engineering (KSE) has been accepting students into its master’s and doctoral programs since February 2009. The admission process for KSE is the same as that for other departments at KAIST. KSE welcomes not only students (graduates) from the departments of Computer Science, Industrial & System Engineering, and Business Administration but also students from other departments who have acquired appropriate knowledge and experience required by KSE. In particular, students who have acquired knowledge related to Cognitive Science, Programming Skill, Probability and Statistics, Operation Research (OR), Design of System, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are highly likely to succeed in the program. Please don’t hesitate to contact professors if you want to join us.
