Computer Science/Engineering Fundamentals Groups

Computer Science/Engineering Fundamentals consist of four groups that study in-depth theories and technologies that form the basis of computer science and engineering, also providing a foundation for undergraduate education.

Theory & Software

The Theory & Software group aims to develop programming languages and software that provide theoretical backgrounds and facilitate communication between the computer and human beings, which are indispensable to computing theory, logic, language theory, geometry, methodology, etc. within the computing environment.

Data Science

Data Science is a research group that studies how to recognize, search, analyze, process, and represent data and deliver them effectively to users. Data science has critical importance in today’s IT world where a massive amount of data is generated from a wide variety of sources in many different ways. The data science group includes Machine learning, Data analytics, Human language understanding and synthesis, Computer vision, Computer graphics, Haptics, and Virtual reality fields.

System Science

System Science is a field that develops and operates various optimal computer systems with consideration of performance, cost, and reliability, from the device level to a large scale computing environment. It is a fundamental field that props up the computer-based IT industry. At the core of its importance lies in-depth knowledge in theory and practice of hardware and software in a large scope. At present, our System Science Group covers computer architecture, system operation, and cloud and big data computing.

Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Applications Groups

Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Applications comprises three research groups that pursue collaborative and interdisciplinary research, even with other IT-related departments at POSTECH.

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Institute

HCI studies everything related to two-way communication between users and computers, based on the fact that it is the human beings who use the computers. It is one of the most exemplary interdisciplinary fields combining computer engineering-based technology with humanitarian studies, which has its basis in psychology, sociology, etc.
