Master’s and doctorate programs for university-industry joint research
KIST’s master’s and doctorate programs of university-industry joint research is a program through which KIST, whose primary work is research, and universities that focus on fostering talent cooperate with each other to seek differentiated curriculum from existing programs and nurture new research-centered advanced technical talent.
KIST, a leader in performing such university-industry cooperation activities, established the nation’s first university-industry cooperation research curriculum with Korea University in 1991 and has signed partnerships with 14 universities, operating various forms of master’s and doctorate programs in cooperative research.
In 2004, one year after the proposal to install the institute was approved, KIST Gangneung Institute of Natural Products signed an agreement with Gangneung Wonju National University (Gangneung University at the time) on installation of master’s and doctorate programs in university-industry joint research, serving as an axis of fostering outstanding science and technology talent in the region.
Fundamental subjects are enrolled in the university while, at KIST, students participate in research assignments and thesis research for degrees. Professors of KIST and the university are both responsible for instructing students.
