Overview

Formerly known as the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, KAIST was South Korea’s first research-oriented science and engineering institution when it was founded in 1971. 
For such as young university, KAIST’s standing is growing rapidly: it is widely acknowledged as the best university in Korea and has been named the most innovative university in the Asia-Pacific region. 
One of its stand-out research projects of recent years saw researchers develop an electric transport system, where vehicles get power from cables underneath the road via non- magnetic charging. It’s an example of how KAIST is leading the field in developing new technologies that might tackle world problems such as energy consumption and congestion in cities. 
Around 10,000 full-time students attend KAIST, split between 4,000 undergraduates and 6,000 postgraduates. Science, engineering and technology are the school’s main focuses, though the university has branched out in recent years and is now internationally accredited in business education too. It has also adopted dual degree programs with leading world universities such as Carnegie Mellon in the United States and the Technical University of Berlin, and these offer its students diverse educational opportunities. 
The university’s main campus is in Daedeok Science Town in the city of Daejeon, 150 kilometers south of the South Korean capital, Seoul. There’s also another campus in Seoul itself, which is home to the business school as well as the graduate schools of finance, management and information and media management. 
Most lectures and research activities take place on the Daejeon main campus, which is also where most students live. There is a total of 29 dormitories on the outskirts of the Daedeok campus, strictly segregated along gender lines. There are also apartments for married students outside the campus. Extracurricular activities on campus may not be a priority at KAIST, although there are clubs and societies for students, and the university holds regular arts events including opera, drama, pop concerts, dance and classical recitals.
