The Department of Standards and Intelligence at Korea University is a pioneering academic field that provides education and conducts research in areas such as standards, testing and certification, and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) including patents and copyrights. The purpose of this education is to ensure that subjects of standardization, such as products, processes, or services, are appropriately applied in our society as originally intended.


Aiming for a future of convergent society, the Department of Standards and Intelligence recognizes the necessity for a specialized department dedicated to nurturing integrated talents.

We recognized early on the importance of patent and utility model applications for the protection of innovative technologies related to new technological development. We aim to contribute to the enhancement of technological competitiveness in the field of knowledge and technology convergence industry through patents.


The Department of Standards and Intelligence is a pioneering challenge area, being the first undergraduate program of its kind established in the country. We eagerly await ambitious students who will lead in our department. Standards and intelligence are fields where one can continuously study and make progress, driven by a sustainable society or sustainable demands. Therefore, we have made extensive preparations for you to study these two fields - standards and intelligence - together. We are fully prepared to offer ample support for your learning. We greatly appreciate the interest of enthusiastic and capable students.

Career Paths after Graduation

Standards and Intelligence are concepts that can be applied across any industry. Therefore, there are opportunities to enter various roles in diverse fields, depending on your ambition and ability.


In today's society, there's a significant shortage of specialists in standards and knowledge. As a result, there are job opportunities in large corporations or small-to-medium enterprises to meet the business demand for professionals in these areas. Additionally, you could serve as a civil servant or researcher, providing standards and knowledge services in Korean national public institutions, large corporations, and private organizations. You could also sit for various professional exams, such as those for engineers, technical managers, or patent attorneys. Korean companies are perhaps the most significant source of demand in this field.


If you develop a greater interest in research, you could pursue a master's or doctoral degree, opening up the possibility of working in a research institute or as a research director. Additionally, there are opportunities to work at organizations like the Korean Intellectual Property Office or the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards. If international standards particularly interest you, there are opportunities at various international organizations, such as the International Standardization Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
