COV7003 Academic Writing and Research Ethics 3 3 6 Major Master/Doctor SKKU Institute for Convergence Korean,English Yes
This course trains graduate students to become more effective, efficient, and confident writers. This is a hands-on course that emphasizes interactive examples and practice. In the first four weeks, we will review principles of effective writing, examples of good and bad writing, and tips for making the writing process easier. In the second four weeks, we will examine issues specific to scientific writing, including: authorship, peer review, the format of an original manuscript, and research ethics. Students will complete editing exercises, write two short papers, and edit each others’ work. The primary audience is graduate majors, graduate students in any disciplines, and professional scientists.

EAM5209 Advanced Materials Convergence and Applications 3 6 Major Master/Doctor 1-4 Advanced Materials Science and Engineering Korean Yes
Recently, in the fields of natural sciences and engineering, convergence technology with an aim of developing new functionality and applicability over the existing technologies is becoming increasingly important along with traditional academic research areas of metals, ceramics, polymers, textiles, and electrical engineering. The main purposes of the convergence technology are to create new materials and technologies from systematic convergence between existing and newly developed materials and technologies, and also to gain insights into the new convergent materials and applications. In order to achieve these objectives, one must have deep understandings on the basis materials such as metals, ceramics, as well as polymers, fibers, and even hybrid-type composite materials. Therefore, in this graduate course, as to cultivate or train the future core researchers in the field of convergence materials researches, topics from the recent convergence researches will be studied as well as fundamental studies on the basis materials such as metals, ceramics, and polymers. The main three topics in the course will be, i) the definition of convergence technology, ii) fundamentals of basis materials and technologies for convergence, and iii) applications of the convergence technology.
