Sport interaction Science

The Department of Sport Interaction Science (SIS) was established in 2019 with the support from the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, to address academic and practical interests in sports and new technology.

The Department of SIS focuses on three different areas, including virtual reality, big data, and healthcare, by adopting interdisciplinary approaches of sports science, sports marketing, engineering, and software. The Department of SIS has the advantage of nationally recognized faculty and well-equipped research laboratories from both College of Sport Science and Software at Sungkyunkwan University.

The Department of SIS provides programs at master, Ph.D and combined master/ Ph.D level, and students are able to pursue either Sport Science or Engineering Degree based on their interest.

Facilities, Resources and Funding

The Department of Sport Interaction Science (SIS) provides funding to all the students who received an admission for the program. In addition, the Department of SIS operates several research laboratories including Sport Marketing & Management Laboratory, Kinematics Laboratory, Biomechanics Laboratory, Excise Physiology Laboratory, and Sport Psychology Laboratory. The Department of SIS has also built a VR Sports Zone which has 5 virtual reality devices, eye-tracking device, and virtual golf simulator which was donated from GolfZone, to conduct research related to human-technology interactions in the context of sport.


Exchanges & Partnerships

The Department of Sports Interaction Science has a joint degree program with the School of Kinesiology at the Louisiana State University. The program allows students to pursue dual degree with LSU and participate in exchange program and be involved in a research collaboration with the nationally recognized faculties from LSU. In addition, the Department of SIS singed an academic-industrial cooperation working agreement (MOU) with several companies, such as Suwon KT Witz, Sports Convergence Industrial Support Center, and, GSMATT, to provide students real-working experiences, and to work collaborative research projects.
