Program Overview

  • The H Lab is a community of inventors (called “humaneer (human+engineer)”) who work as members of 8 research teams making wearable-like devices so as to have funny (playful) things in everywhere (TIE).

    Students come to the H-Lab through the Program in Human ICT, based with SKKU’s Convergence Institute. Each year, the program accepts approximately 15 master’s candidates with backgrounds ranging from computer science, to engineering, to humanity majors such as psychology and cognitive/social science, and to industrial/graphic design majors.
    The approximately 8 projects under way at the Lab are as varied as the students who conduct them: from innovating smart healthcare devices, to new wearable applications to tomorrow’s smart vehicle and home.

    All graduate students are currently fully supported (5 million won plus a stipend) for two years of registration, and spend a majority of their time on research activities until they receive the Master of Science in Human-ICT Convergence.

    H-Lab. offers approximately 20 graduate courses and cross-listed 50 courses university-wide. H Lab courses explore several themes, including, for example, Human-Computer Interaction, Perception Computing, Design, and Entrepreneurship.
  • The area of job opportunities varies from Information and communication technology, engineering , mobile contents, and any other companies and research institutes where requires UX service and design.

How to Apply

  • Unlike other programs, departments, and labs at SKKU, the Human ICT Convergence Program welcomes and encourages applications from students with varied backgrounds—from art to engineering, music to physics, mathematics to neuroscience. The online admission form may be accessed here. Human ICT applicants should be: committed and accomplished in their area of concentration prior to application, with an emphasis on creative extensions of that domain; able to work in an engineering environment; and proficient at computer programming and/or hardware design. Industrial part-time students are also encouraged to apply.

Degrees of Study

  • Master of Science in Human ICT Convergence
    The Program in Human ICT Convergence offers the master of science degree in Human ICT Convergence.
    Requirements:
    Residency of two academic years (one semester may be a summer semester) Research thesis Ten academic course subjects (including two preliminary courses) over two years, in addition to research work A small number of undergraduate students are allowed to join H-project one semester ahead of regular admission and continue on toward the MS degree. Typically students have extensive experience at the H Lab through interdisciplinary programs that emphasize design arts and information and communication technologies. In some cases, an early decision is made at the beginning of their senior year regarding admission to the master’s program.
  •  
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Interaction Science
    Requirements:
    Minimum of three years of residency beyond the master of science degree Qualifying examination (consisting of written and oral components) Program of original research leading to a thesis, and a thesis defense Students pursuing the PhD degree without a master’s degree are usually admitted first as master’s students; continuation to the doctoral program is then conditional on performance in the master’s program.
