Recognized as the best among all mechanical engineering programs in Korea by the Korean Council for University Education, KUME continues to pursue its goal to be a world-class research-oriented university. Leading the path of the best education and actualizing its dream to enter the global stage, KUME provides a global standard engineering education through Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea (ABEEK).

Engineering from A to Z

Mechanical engineering deals with creating and developing mechanical systems for the betterment of humanity. Mechanical engineering involves virtually every aspect of engineering including aerospace, automotive, bio-technology, chemical, computers, construction, energy, electronics, nano-technology, robotics, and others. Mechanical engineers are committed to making the world a better place by innovatively working with nature. From this perspective, mechanical engineering forms the foundation of engineering in general and yielding demand and career opportunities both in engineering and nonengineering companies worldwide. We are dedicated to impart students with creativity, fundamental principles, and leadership that will guide our students to be the world leaders across all sectors of science.

Realizing the Future with Technology

Humans have always dreamed of being able to fly. Leonardo da Vinci designed structures for the earliest flying machines some five hundred years ago. Four hundred years later, the Wright brothers engineered the first airplane. This is but one example of how mechanical engineering is an academic field that fulfills dreams and hopes that were once thought impossible. Korea University Mechanical Engineering will start you along the path of continuous imagination, challenge, and invention to make the impossible possible.
