The Department of Mobile Systems Engineering at the School of Information and Communication Engineering has been opened to train competent human resources specialized in mobile phones including next generation mobile communication technology based on an educational-industry cooperative effort with Samsung Electronics.
This is the first case that the department of a particular product, mobile phones, has been opened as a graduate course in local universities. The reason why the department of a particular product of mobile phones has been opened is because Samsung Electronics and Sungkyunkwan University are working to develop the mobile phone industry into a global top industry.
The educational purposes of the Department are to train competent technical human resources who will lead the next generation mobile phone technology; to provide demand-centered education based on the trend of the high-tech mobile phone industry; and to train competent technical human resources that can be immediately put into job sites.
There are five major research fields in the Department of Mobile Systems Engineering. The first is Next Generation Mobile Communication, which includes next generation wired and wireless communication networks, local area network technology, and mobile communication modulation. The field also does standard research into modulation types and developing multi-antenna arrays and network structure.
The second major research field is System-on-Chip and Radio Frequency technologies. It focuses on technical research of applied mobile phone communication modems and Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) technologies. The field designs model SOCS, RFICs, and other types of sensors.
The third research field is Embedded Software, which focuses on technical research of software built into mobile phones. This includes communication protocols, operating systems, and middleware designed for mobile devices.
The next one is Mobile Phone Multimedia. This focuses on technical research of content creation, management, and transmission. It also includes research on codecs and algorithms to improve image quality and sound quality in multimedia files, speech recognition and synthesis, streaming audio and video, and search technology.
The fifth and final research field in the Department of Mobile Phones is Mobile Phone Applied Services. It focuses on various applied service technologies such as new concepts of input and output devices. It also includes research into health and mobile devices, and methods for making ergonomic interfacing that is healthier for users.
The Department of Mobile Systems Engineering welcomes foreign students. Foreign students enrolled at the Department are also considered as employees of Samsung Electronics.
The Department of Mobile Systems Engineering is a product of educational industrial cooperation to train practical human resources that companies need, beyond traditional academic scopes.
Universities, which should produce competent human resources required by society and companies which need human resources who will create the future are trying to find a mutually beneficial solution through this system, and the Department of Mobile Systems Engineering becomes the first one to suggest the solution. That is, the Department of Mobile Systems Engineering will become a leader in a new trend of ABC, Academia Business Cooperation.
